We ate dinner at the Hoplite Irish Pub and Restaurant. The Cheese Sticks and Mac & Cheese Balls are incredible. A definite must try. My family and I (kids 11 and 14) all enjoyed our dinners. The food was great.

Large portions, fast and friendly service. Bar with TVs, lots of locals. Outside smoking area. Not much parking. Food was okay, as pub food it was fine but it's not cordon bleu.
