We had family and friends meet us at the bar. It was a Friday night so things were happening. We loved it and the food was great, lots of laughter and fun. We will be returning!

Well - I would not recommend coming for the food, nor cleanliness, but the servers are friendly and the beer is cold - although they were out of one of their draft selections on a Friday afternoon. We shared a hamburger and fries - both were mediocre. The bathroom and bar/restaurant area was pretty dirty - but that doesn't seem... More

This is a lively bar with a large karaoke and sports bar on one side and a small lounge type bar on the other side. The staff are friendly and good at their job. If your up for karaoke and want to watch some sports this is a good place to visit

We came here on a pub crawl tour. We went to the back bar since it was less crowded. We actually circled around and stopped here twice. Both times we ordered the exact same drink. Both times the same bartender made them. They were completely different prices and tastes both times! The drinks were overpriced and weak. We had basic... More

The palce is pretty big, with the hueg room looking oike a sports bar and the small room looking ike a irish bar. The service was not very good to getd rinsk to begin with. My Guiness was one pour, which is a no-no and the drinskw ere uber-expensive.

Ask for any sport you want. Large bar area and function area separate Will show on the multiple TVs whatever sport you want Service is poor

We met up with a group to take the ghost pub crawl and was amazed at the place. Great brew and grilled scallops with bacon. Definitely will spend more time the next time we go to Savannah Georgia again!

I had buffalo chicken fingers, they were great! We had stopped here as our bathroom break the night before on our haunted walking tour so when we were out and about we stopped for lunch.

Stopped by on my own because of reviews I had seen in TripAdvisor. Reviews were right! Good selection of domestic and imported beer. Found one I liked that I had never tried. It's now on my top 10 list of beers I like. Had fried oyster basket that was surprisingly good. Bar atmosphere was good, with TV's showing a variety... More
