This is not a good place for singles; all singles are denied a table. Bar only. Also, there is enough parking for maybe 3 cars so I had to circle around many times just to park nearby. Not to mention that it felt as if...More

Our first time here and loved it! Small inside, so you might have to wait a few.........Lots of irish faces......nice people.......great menu with wicked cheap prices. Homemade corned beef hash, and irish soda bread toast! Definately worth the wait! Delisious breakfast!

I've eaten here quite a few times. It's a great spot to meet a friend for breakfast. It's small and very popular. I think I've had to wait in line every time I've come here. The food is good and prices are reasonable.
