There are steep stairs at the entrance that may deter someone. The hand rail helps. We were greeted warmly at the top. Service was attentive. Food was good. It was Cinco De Mayo and we tried their margarita. Not the best. But dinner was great.

Good food and service. Friendly waitresses We got there pretty late, everywhere else had stopped serving food. We had the irish stew and wings. Guinness was decent. The stew was fab and I love wings anyway. Nice walk back to the apartment! Nice end to the night

This was my first visit to an Irish pub after visiting Ireland. Upon seeing that they serve Murphys and Magners I knew we had made a good choice. I was really interested in trying the Irish dishes that were served so I went with the shepherd's pie. I felt like I was back in Ireland! The atmosphere was relaxed and... More

Rosie'. has a long staircase, so its a bit daunting to the 70+ customers . . . but it's worth it! A full bar and delicious Irish beers. Thankfully, there's all kinds of well-made food, not just Irish, so it can work very well for a larger group

Been here several times for lunch and I'm never disappointed. Its not cheap, but the food is good and the portions are ample, making this a good place to grab lunch.

Lunch was comfortable and the fish and chips delicious. Service was friendly and location downtown with fun view of the Pacific Garden Mall. Try to snag one of the tables overlooking the street.

Last weekend, my boyfriend and I went to Rosie's for dinner and had a great time dining there. Even though we had a reservation, we had to wait about 5 min before our table was available. Once seated, the service was fast and impeccable. Our waiter, a young man, was very professional and friendly, and had a great Irish uniform... More

Good selection of beers (I actually tried a peanut butter stout...and it was quite good). But the food is average-plus. My reuben was the best of our four meals. The burgers were served on buns that collapsed when you held them. And the just-barely-cooked fries looked like they were the scraps from the bottom of a bag of frozen rejects.... More

Yes, this place is a little expensive, but it is WELL WORTH IT. If you can trek up the long flight of stairs to heaven, do it! The service and atmosphere are fantastic. And as a vegetarian, they have a number of things to eat. Can we talk potatoes? The best in town! Just delicious. We went with a group... More
