I ordered the Tenderloin and Chevre which was all noodle and virtually no beef - quite disappointing I would never order again. Others ordered fish and chips and both parties thought they were good. .

Slow, yet friendly service. It seems our food order was not submitted because we waited for an hour and we had to ask about it. Food was average and several other errors were made. Don't plan on going back.

The food is very good - like the sandwiches and wings. They have an extensive Scotch list as well as an extensive beer list. The atmosphere is Irish pub where they are spot on. The service can be slow and spotty even when they are...More

The place is decorated very cool for an Irish Pub! We got the Fish and Chips and it was very good! The Tartar Sauce was amazing and tasted home made! The service from our waiter was ok, that is the reason for the 4 stars!

The best fish and chips and of course the best Irish beer. The pub is a work of art, it was made in Ireland and reassembled in Excelsior. A beautiful place to dine, good food, excellent service, and a good price value.

We all love to eat here. The food is great, the bar is fun. The fish and chips and shepards pie are fantastic.

Old bar atmosphere, abundantly friendly staff, well balanced, deeply stocked wine, beer, Scotch & Whiskey offerings. We had the filet sliders and roasted brussel sprouts - both were excellent - first time that I've had finely shredded French Fries. They were perfectly crispy - delicious!...More

We enjoyed this place. It was comfortable and the staff and bar tender was friendly and informative. We stopped in for Guiness and an appetizer. The pour was perfect and the tenderloin appetizer was to die for!
