We had dinner here the night before and event we were attending, the Yuengling Lager Jogger 5K run. There are 3500 runners that come to town for this, so we were very surprised that many of the things we asked for, they were out of. The service was extremely slow for drinks and food, and we weren't really sure why,... More

Had dinner and beers in downstairs, stone walled cellar room. Very interesting history. Good Irish choices but many menu selections beside Irish fare if that is your choosing. Service was good. Restaurant and bar area upstairs was pretty busy when we were there. Lots of on street parking in quiet area of town ( St. Clair ).

Just can't say anything good about this place. Simple was expensive!! Why? Parking can get tricky if it's a good day, i know no one person ever, local or otherwise to say anything good about this place

The service in this bar was excellent. We absolutely loved our waitress who was extremely attentive and funny. Food and drinks were good. We had the quesadillas, chicken wings, and the onion rings. All were delightful (especially the garlic parm wings!!!)

Nothing to look at from the outside but decent Irish Pub feel on the inside. A bit dark if you are sitting in the back. Cheesesteak and Hot Ham and Cheese were very good and filling. A good place for lunch after taking the tour of the Yuengling brewery.

We were walking to the food store and almost passed it. I am so glad we stopped in. I had wanted to get something to hold me over until dinner. Ordered the clams and soup which was fabulos. My partner had the soup and calamari. We each shared the calamari because it was a very large plate. Large beer selection... More

If your in Pottsville you have to go here. Restaurant and bar is upstairs. Make sure to check out the downstairs and tunnels, there's a story about the building. A lot of history. To many good things on the menu to pick just one favorite. Staff was awesome! Prices are reasonable.

Been here a few times now , the pierogies are exquisite, boneless wings are super good , and the appetizer of calamari is a meal in itself , and everything is at a very reasonable price for everything, O-yeah can't forget about all the different varieties of beer that or extremely cold and refreshing. Definitely stop in this place !... More
