We were there during the annual Irish Music week, which is perhaps the worst time to judge a place. Still, the food was good, the service was good. The waitress kept confusing Smithwicks for Guiness. Easy error to make, though!

This is a good place if you do not mind eating in a bar setting. The drinks are good and the food is okay. I have stopped in several times but would not be my first choice.

The Shamrock is a good place to enjoy a pint and some conversation. The food was edible but not the best. Might stop when thirsty but would go to another restaurant for food.
