We stopped here for a couple of veggie sandwiches and a hamburger. Food was good, waitress was very nice and the decor is pleasant. A great spot for lunch, dinner or just a drink at the bar.

This is a decent take on an Irish pub. Nicely decorated with lots of nooks and crannies. The food is pretty good and there’s a decent selection of beers. Good, efficient service. A good choice if you’re in Old Town.

Beautiful woodwork, diverse bar and strong menu. We went for dinner & had little kids in tow. I like a pub that can meet the needs of everyone: drinks with friends or dinner with family....the way it should be.

Was a great place to have a drink and listen to music. You will only be screaming at each other to be heard so sit back, enjoy the music and drinks saving time to talk later!

Enjoyed a birthday dinner here with family. The wait staff did a good job - not too hurried for sure. Longest wait was out front just to be seated. Food quality was good but not too broad a selection and not as many Irish options...More

We had lunch. The menu had a lot of variety and showed up quickly. The server was cheerful and checked on us enough to make sure we were taken care of without hovering. Good shepherd's pie.
