For lunch or dinner, anytime is a good time to visit the Irish pub. Food is so good! Must try the burgers! Staff is very friendly. They have live entertainment, usually a one man band but still great and entertaining.

Lovely pies, fireplace on and friendly staff. We always stop by when we're in town. A little bit of Ireland in the mountains, what more could you ask for? The seats right by the fireplace(s) are always taken but that's to be expected.

I always order the same thing because I love it so much! Steak and Guiness Pie with a Black Velvet (Guiness & cider). Friends have ordered other menu items - all delicious. I'm not much of a whiskey drinker, but they have a massive selection. If you're looking for a fun atmosphere, Irish charm, authentic pub decor, and great service... More
