Typical small bar. Not a lot of room to move around. Not easy to find parking. It gets VERY loud... read more

waitress was lovely; however, even a salad with steak tips wasn't done well. I guess if you're looking for a quick bite and a pint, it's fine. For dinner, there are better restaurants.

Not surprised to see recently that this closed- was there this winter, smelled like a bar, food was mediocre, prices were high.

This place charges Disney prices for frozen out-of-a-bag crap. drinks are crazy high, too. The crowd is older, so not much to look at.

come for the beer and the modern pub feel. Actually seems more a sports bar than an Irish pub. Food ranges from good to very good. Very good beer selection and good service. In the summer there is out door service whihc can be nice.

Went with a friend for dinner and were seated immediately in the quiet dining room. Our waitress was great and greeted us immediately for our drink order. It's a smaller food menu, but everything we ordered was delish. Don't miss the desserts we had a...More

I've been here a few times and so far they have been very consistent in providing good food. For the drinks, they have a decent selection of beers and other cocktails. There is a decent amount of TVs in the restaurant which is nice when...More
