Loud, crowded on Saturday night, we had to wait 15 minutes. The turkey burger wasn't that great, the regular burger was better. Nice salad with the burger. Good place to hang with teenagers ....

I have been here a few times and the food does not disappoint. The menu has changed a couple of times and the draft beer selection is always rotating. There are some Irish dishes which are very tasty. I will be here again and again.

Went with a few friends and it wasn't crowded at all. There was a dinner rush and shortly after it emptied out and was pretty quiet. Not much ambiance but great service, food and drinks. Had the kielbasa and pierogi which were amazing!!
