Brunch was ok although my creme brûlée French toast was really good. Coffee was cold. Service was off. Asked if we wanted cream and sugar. Shouldn't you just bring it? No spoons to stir. Used my knife. Asked for refills. Thank God it wasn't crowded...More

I had a burger and it was very good. The service was friendly and the food came within a few minutes. The is not a irish restaurant but seafood and burgers.

Stopped for mid-afternoon drinks with friends. Clean surroundings and service by bartender Ryan was courteous, quick and professional. Not sure about meal service since only snackers available were saltine crackers.
