Being the only Irish pup around it seems they have no instinctive to try harder. Chili is disappointing no matter what kind you try. Burgers where also less than stellar. Maybe the bar makes up for it. Appeared the only area to have a few customers. I can't recommend this place other than just stopping for a drink.

I have eaten at this pub since it first opened several years ago. Since then it has changed owners about 4 times. The inside contains authentic furnishing made in Ireland shipped here. The food is average and it seems the portions may have gotten a bit smaller. I love the corned beef bites on the appetizer menu, but it's a... More

Used to have a good crowd and good food. Food and service definitely gone downhill in last 6 months.

Second trip, smaller portions, still pretty good. On the second trip, my GF had corned beef and cabbage. This last trip, oh my. The oil they used to... More

Got there around 5ish so the place was still not busy. One must keep in mind that this is a bar and a restaurant so the bar gets the after work have a brewski crowd. My wife had meat loaf which was very generous and tasty and I had a portion of Shepard's Pie which was a little on the... More

Went here with friends for dinner and beers. Very impressed with service. The staff was attentive and personable. No actual beer menu but the server said she "had it in her head"😉 they had any beer we asked for so no complaints there. I ordered the fish and chips which were almost inedible. Greasy fish with zero taste and fries... More

I had high expectations for the Fish & Chips. My husband ordered it and said it was greasy. I tried the Hot Brown Open face sandwich. It is sliced turkey on Texas toast with cheese sauce, crispy bacon and tomatoes. I was very disappointed when it was brought to the table and the turkey was luncheon meat, not real sliced... More

When this placed opened we were very impressed and the food, atmosphere and service was outstanding. Stopped in Sunday after not having been there in about 9 months and what a change. I would compare it to a roadhouse rather than a restaurant. The food was as good as we remembered. However when we walked up to the door a... More

We went here because of a Groupon. We were very happy with the choice. The pretzels and beer cheese dip were excellent. The handmade fried cheese was soooo good.The burger was perfect as well. Our service was great! No issues and bathrooms were clean. We will be coming back here.
