We arrived before the evening started to rev up. The bartender was Irish herself which made it cool. She was amazing making drinks as the crowd started to gather. She didn't miss a beat. Don't know how she does it will all the loud music and never ending sea of people. She still acknowledged us when we wanted another round.... More

We went for a late drink. Friendly bartenders. When we went there was a some good acoustic guitar live music covering popular songs. The wings were a standout. We'd def go back. Crowd -- started filling up as we got closer to midnight. Crowd was very mixed when we went; ranged from celebrating 21st bday to 50-somethings.

My daughter and I stopped in for a quick dinner before going to see Stevie Nicks at the Time Warner Arena. This is a quick 5 minute easy walk from the Arena and the Transit Station. We were running late and had less than an hour before the show started. We were sat immediately and Peter, our waiter, was there... More

Met an old friend from out of town. Love Irish pub. Not a bad imitation of the real think. They even have an Irish guy. Honestly, it is a great place with good home cooked Irish food. Took a little long to be served, but similar to what we had in Ireland. Really does take us back to where we... More

We had brunch here and enjoyed our meals. The bar itself was brought over from Ireland and gives the place an authentic feel. Upstairs is a whiskey bar with a wall full of choices. This is a fun place.

I had the haddock po boy with brussel sprouts. It was all good. The beer selection is ok. The service at the bar was average. I would stop here again.
