I went there for lunch with six other individuals. I arrived a little early as did another of my friends. We sat there and no one even acknowledged us. Finally we asked the waitress if she could take a drink order and she indicated we were in someone else's service area. He was behind the bar at the time. She... More

Italian steak sandwich is easily the best in town. This is not a skimpy sandwich. More meat here than expected. Will return for sure.

I'm sorry, I don't expect a rap band in an Irish pub! I will never go back!! It's not that I have anything agains rap (it is not my preference however) it just doesn't belong in a place that calls itself an Irish Pub!!!

Had a great patty melt and burger. Staff was friendly and attentive. Beer selection was decent but nothing fantastic. It's the kind of neighborhood bar that you could hang out at and relax with a beer and friends.

The atmosphere was better than the food. None of the three meals we had were anything special. The nice appreciated aspect was the noise deadening features. It was pleasant to be able to talk without shouting.

My wife and I stopped in for a quick dinner after work. We have eaten there a number of times and was hoping the had the homemade lasagna (they only have it on the 3rd Wed of the Month) But somehow the 18th is not the 3rd Wed of the month. No big deal we went with the Emerald Isle.... More

The food is very good and home made! The drinks are pricey, but come with a smile! Lunch is the best and always changing. The new owners have redone the whole place and made it a success. It also brightens up the corner of Washington and Columbus in downtown Bay City.

Food is excellent here. Drink prices are pricey though. Service needs improvment with a bartender that has a better attitude. Last few times I came here this woman would act like I was bothering her every time I needed a drink refill.

We stopped here after another restaurant was closed on a Monday. We were pleasantly surprised by the food. Homeade Onion Rings, and the Ruben are a must try. One of the best Rubens I have had in a long time. We will definetely come back to try other food.

This is a nice, clean little establishment. The burgers, Italian steak sandwich and coney dogs are all very good. The daily specials are fairly priced and appear to be a very good value.
