It's cozy and friendly with good Happy Hour prices. The menu is small but they have some really good items. I love their Fish and Chips. A 1/2 order of the Shepard's Pie is really good as well. And you can't beat their burgers. They use pumpernickel on their Ruben that is a good choice as well. Enjoy a good... More

We've been here twice, more than a year apart. The first time, the food was very good; this time it would have been excellent, except that it was extremely over-salted. The service and decor are average. For me, it was too noisy, but those who are into neighborhood and/or Irish pubs will love it.

I'm so happy we thought to check Groupon for a restaurant deal, otherwise I NEVER would have found this place! Small area for seating, but very quaint! We had the crab cake sandwich, a burger, and of course the local Natty Boh beer! Don't bother to upgrade to anything beyond the chips, because they are house-made and AWESOME!

Stopped in for lunch with my wife and daughter. Small place with a neighborhood feel. The waitress was very good and took great care of us. We ordered the chicken quesadia as the appetizer, not Irish, but very good. We also got some of their house made chips, also very good. I ordered the Shepherds pie, should have gotten the... More

This is a great neighborhood bar. We went for drinks only last week and was surprised at how great it was. Nice beer draft selection on tap. They also serve food which we did not get to try. For sure on our next visit.

Hubby and I love trying out new restaurants but also love saving money at the same time so I often check to see what local restaurants have deals on Groupon, that's how we discovered today's spot. In the past 2 years we've been using Groupon and Living Social we have found so many great spots that we would have never... More

Must get the Shepherds Pie and Crabcakes. Delish!!!!! It's such a cool place. Quiet in the back and loud in the front. I will definitely return here on my next visit. Super atmosphere!

We went here after a visit to the near by Johns Hopkins center . The bartender was also the server and the bus boy yet he managed everything very well and we never had to flag him down for anything . We shared the boxty's , old bay flavored wings , and cheddar jalapeño poppers . The boxty's were very... More

Irish bars can be found everywhere around the world and they are never like the bars in Ireland. They have a smelly, dank, drunken life of their own. And in Baltimore? But the gentlemen at the hotel was sincere in his recommendation and because I didn't want to invest too much time in getting down to Fell's Point, I popped... More

This is a solid Irish pub serving all sorts of delicious bites. We are here during a Wednesday happy hour and the vibe is energetic and yet somehow laid back. The bar takes center stage with a lively group with tables for two surrounding it. (We didn't head upstairs or to the back room.) There is a huge window, perfect... More
