This place has been around in one form or another for ever. The food is very good. The fish fry n Friday's is really good! Kind of cramped inside, not a very good place for a large group or for small children

An average to above average pub. Great beer selections including local crafts. Service was very good, even though it seemed very busy! Fairly extensive menu for a pub. Burger were great - so was fish & SW wrap. Nice basket of onion rings as well. And the beer was very cold!

Came here because I heard they had a great perch dinner. It was not on the menu. May be they have it on specific days only. The food was decent. Although I think they call themselves an Irish pub, it's really just a local place. Everyone there knew we didnt live in the neighborhood. Was sort of creepy, but everyone... More

Good Pub. Offers nothing that you can't find in most other places. The service was nice, and the buffalo wings had a good kick. Beer was cold, but nothing that I would travel for if I wasn't right around the corner.

friends and i were looking for a local restaurant to have a quick dinner. This bar/restaurant had decent ambience , enough menu choices and very good table service. Food was unremarkable. Prices for food were reasonable.

Stopped by for a pint and some wings. Place was friendly enough, bartenders and waitress working hard. Older place, older crowd. Decent beer selection and menu. Prices were fair. Sports on the televisions. Yeah, a quiet neighborhood bar with regulars that weren't fussy about you joining them. Ample off street parking in rear.

little older crowd then other local eateries in the area. prices were great and food was excellent generally. shared a bunch of appetizers and a perch sandwich. apps were great (especially the Leprechaun legs) but perch a little dry. would definitely return.

The food is always top notch and service is very prompt. Wednesday is corned beef. A huge helping for a reasonable price. Every time I'm in the area I stop for a meal or take out. Friday they have a tasty fish fry. An Irish pub with great food what more could you ask for.
