Wow! After not coming here for a very long time was very pleasantly surprised by the amazing renovation they did to their previously creepy and now totally awesome back room. High ceilings, great bar, high top seating, and a vastly improved cocktail and food menu.

Good place to eat and drink. Their corned beef is very good and their shepherds pie is good as well. Their boneless wings, even though not an Irish staple, are excellent. Not too hot and not too much breading but very tasty. I haven’t been...More
