Authentic Irish food and beer along with lots of other delicious entrees. They have been popular here for 30 yrs. Our waitress Jessica was excellent and knew her stuff. I couldn't resist trying the lamb shepherd's pie, outstanding especially with a draught Guinness.

This is a moderately priced restaurant. An average priced meal runs around $15, some higher some lower. Obviously, beef dishes are higher.
