I avoided reviewing this place because I live near here and don't want to see it get so crowded I can't get a seat. Great modern Irish food in a neighborhood pub. Please don't go here for good food and nice people, I want my seat. Thanks.

Stopped in while walking the area. Friendly place with Guinness on tap, a selection of Irish whiskey, and killer pub grub.

Their menu is varied well prepared and reasonably priced pub fare, with a good variety of beers and whiskeys available. I... More

This place is really good. A traditional pub in an historic neighborhood. Really great atmosphere. Very good food, beer and other libations. Look for this place...you won't be disappointed.
