This is a neat location with an awesome outdoor alley type seating, which they light up at night. We only had drinks here, which were average price and we enjoyed the atmosphere!

Great beer selection and fresh Guinness. The "famous" reuben sandwich is with dry and tough corned beef. The fish and chips are great.

The Irish stew was very tasty. Good choice for vegetarians too. I enjoyed the vegetable curry. Drinks are a reasonable price for near Union Square, $7 for a glass of Merlot. The service was very efficient and the staff are friendly. Worth a trip.
