We have been going here for years and have never been disappointed. My favorite entree is Boxty, which is variety of roasted vegetables served over a potato pancake with melted cheese. The choices in beer are excellent.

Felt like we were in Ireland again, the food was authentic. Fantastic jumbo lump crab cakes, (no fillers), signature slaw, lamb stew, scallop casserole, Irish breads brown and sweet with currants. Our server was also terrific! Hope to return!

It's just like being in Ireland, but better food! The bar area has the Irish quaint factor. Love the Irish whiskey tomato soup and Irish brown bread. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

No, there is street parking on Maryland ave that has meters until 7. Other than that I would recommend parking in a garage and walking over
