The food was an excellent escape from the dreary rain. We started with their mocha and latté, spinach dip, then onto the main plates. I picked off the lunch specials and had the half size Shepard’s Pie, which was a very decent sized portion followed...More

Around the corner from the airport hotel for march madness weekend that included St Patty's day celebration. The food and music were Irish. We had a large party and all had a good time. The Irish stew and traditional Irish breakfast hit the spot.

My first visit here, what a nice Irish pub, with a pub like feel. Even some of the staff have a real Irish accent. A small lunch special menu will give you traditional Dishes at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended.
