Great place if you like burgers and friend food and that's it. Don't even try to eat here for a healthy meal or vegetarian. But it's convenient and it's a great pub scene.More

"Authentic" (non-chain) example of an Irish pub. The beer selection was great, and the atmosphere workman-like, but superb. We had a great evening with live Irish music- only thing lacking are decent-sized TVs for watching sports.
