This is a popular location with good, reasonably authentic Irish pub food and drink. We tried both the fish and chips and the shepherds pie. The wait staff were a bit overworked with a full house on a Monday night, but they pitched in to help each other as needed.

My husband and I had dinner here. We had a great server. It was fun to see people come in who seemed like they were local and they knew everyone and there was a group of people around the bar just enjoying each other. The food was good and it was a happy place to be. It sounds like it... More

We visited without having reservations and got seated right away. While they offered bangers and mash plus shepards pie we opted for more american foods. I had the fish and chips which was very good - light and flaky. The portions are ample. The server was very friendly and visited the table frequently. They have both booths and tables. The... More

Food has gone downhill in the last couple of years. They seem to have found a need to put melted cheese on everything, even Shepard Pie! they need to stick to the basics that got them noticed in the first place.

I ordered a buffalo chicken salad as a carry Out Saturday night. The kid answering the phone was clueless on the formalities of greeting a customer... felt like I was bothering them. When I picked my order up, the greeting was equally bland as the salad was... the iceberg lettuce was tired (I ordered my salad at 8:30 pm) and... More

This is not just a pub food place, a lot of great IRISH food is made to order. The corn beef is outstanding. The other things i saw looked great too. Don't think you can go wrong eating hear.

Went on a Sunday for lunch after going for a few drinks and appetizers with friends a few months ago, decided to go back with the family. Nice atmosphere! The kids menu needs a lot of improvement (better choices) and it would be nice to have paper menus with crayons for the little kids to occupy themselves. The fruit that... More

We arrived after dinner to enjoy a beer and Irish Whisky. The bar area was full of friendly locals most in their mid-50s to mid-60s with a smattering of 30 and 40 somethings. We engaged with the locals - and bartender - in friendly banter. Very nice evening with reasonably priced drinks.
