After the bartender served 5 other patrons before me i said can i get a beer and he said instantly no and braught it the attention of all bar staff not to serve this customer.No explanation or reason in his opinion i yelled it. In...my opinion I asked him for a beer. I didnt realize a bartender has the authourity to tell all other staff not to serve a patron he dosnt particularly like. Now i see why the numbers are down for live music weekends. Overall its bad managment and bad choice in staff. Im sure he wont be there if I do go back people like that dont keep their jobs.More

My girlfriend and I were out for a date night, we love playing tourist in our own cities. Our server Sara had overheard us talking about where the night playing tourist would lead us. Being the quick thinker she was she gave us recommendations of...little secret attractions. She was amazing! Out going, energized and by far the reason we left satisfied 10/10 customer service!More

Stopped in on Christmas morning. Our server was nice but not not offer us any refills on our coffee. The eggs Beni’s were very tasty. However the double delight so average at best.

This is our fourth visit to this restaurant because the food is outstanding. Unfortunately, today we had a poor experience with a server who displayed a bad attitude. While ordering, I tried to customize a dish for my parents, but the server responded rudely, stating,...“This is an Irish restaurant; we don’t offer that.” I pointed out the perceived racism, and after involving the floor manager, Isaac, I later discovered Ryan was the actual manager. Such attitudes could impact the longevity of your business. I won’t recommend this place to anyone other than those who share the same heritage due to these discriminatory remarks.More

Two for dinner on a busy Friday night while staying at the excellent Best Western next door. We seem to find ourselves in Niagara Falls every year about this time, and don't even consider any other eateries. 'Boxty' was our choice again this year. My...bride enjoyed her fish taco, and my Reuben boxty was absolutely delicious. Breakfast the next morning was also a treat.More

Today experience was not that great. I actually ate at this place 2 days in a row. Yesterday we had vouchers from hotel so breakfast was free. We waited awhile for table and there was only 1 waitress. She told the other waitress was a...no show hence she was by herself. ok. Today we went again. There was 8 of us, when we walked in and waiting for table, one waitress in pony tail told us to step back there are food coming out. It is a reasonable request but perhaps the way she asked with no smile made us feel not welcomed. The food took 40 mins to come. Felt like short staff again, hard to get service, water was emptied and not refilled. Food wise, its average American breakfast but its considered more affordable option in Niagara Falls for a sit down place. The experience turned sour at the end when my foreign friend was paying the bill. She was not accustomed to tipping and didn't know how to work the machine. The waitress (short hair) called her out and said 'you paid $2, is that what you want to pay?', my friend didn't know what to say, then the waitress continued to say, if you want to pay 15% you should click on this. My friend clicked on it feeling pressured so she paid $2 + another 15% which i didn't think this experience today deserved. I will have second thoughts before considering this restaurant again.More

Great place to get a good meal outside of the major tourist area of Niagara. Our waitress Paige was super sweet and gave us great recommendations on what to have. My husband had the steak and cheese with boxty fries and I had the fish...and chips. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted great. Amazing Irish place off the beaten path to enjoy a delicious meal at an affordable price. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Niagara.More

My husband and I were celebrating our 60 anniversary wedding anniversary and had supper there. I had the worst steak in my life that cost $41. It was like shoe leather, both to cut and try to eat. I told the waitress and she offered...to replace it. Why would I want to wait and have a second piece of shoe leather. All I want is what I paid for, no more no less. That was all she offered. Would never recommend.More

Amazing!!! We went for a late lunch and it was a delight!! We both wanted fish and chips, but I wanted to try poutine. It was a separate item on the menu. Instead of selling us way more than we could eat, Jen, our server...offered to upgrade my fries to poutine. She was so friendly and made our experience a pleasure. The servings were huge. It was such a wonderful experience.More

Is a pub, so there's a chance that it might not be good for kids. Down the street is a nice place for kids, The Flying Saucer. Looks like you are in a space ship. And there's a McDonald's right next to the pub.
