Great atmosphere and rich, hearty Irish food. Great place for a cozy drink or dinner. Have been there a few times and continue to be impressed by the service, food, and beer selection.

This is the 3rd time in this place. Maybe I do not get it but the bartenders just are not friendly. They get you drink and ignore you. You ask a question about beer they give you a menu and say, "they are listed in there." Once I can see but not on three times.

Being that I was in town for a conference, I had originally intended to go to Islands in either Folsom or Roseville for dinner but I didn't feel like driving 45 minutes to get some dinner. Instead I walked into one nearby restaurant that was busy but I ended up walking out due to NOT being greeted even though their... More

We visited on a Saturday evening on a reservation placed a few hours earlier. They had a great table ready for us. We enjoyed their buttered pretzel starter and enjoyed some of their beer on tap. The meals arrived quickly and were each delicious Irish dishes.

I like to come here for the people, both the patrons and the individuals that work there. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The food is traditional pub fare with a little flare here and there. I wouldn't go as far as to call it basic, but even the pickiest of eaters can find something on the menu that... More

We were given a gift certificate so we made the mistake of taking our daughters (10 and 8). This is not a spot for kids. Although the server was very kind, we still struggled to find something for the girls to eat and at the end of it we were surprised at how much the food cost.

Great staff and great traditional bar, I visited here with colleagues and its just a great place to catch up, the atmosphere is not overwhelming allowing a decent level of conversation and a great mix of customers. Good selection of beers/spirits and not overly priced, it really is a great place to take in a cold beverage and I must... More

All 7 of us enjoyed the meal and atmosphere. The restaurant staff was great with the 2 children and provided crayons and paper to keep them busy while the meals were prepared. They have a good beer and ale selection and of course have Guinness. My Sheppard's Pie was delicious, however, the vegetables were not cooked as much as a... More
