Treat it as it is--a great drinking spot to meet after work with friends. Friendly bartenders, generous pours, not overly expensive for the area. There are lots of Irish bars in the city. This is authentic, clean and welcoming. I wouldn't travel to drink here...More

Great visit and worth coming back. I can say no more! All six of us found something we liked. Although in Theatre District, much more like an Irish pub chain back home.

Great dinner with fantastic service! Buffalo Mac and cheese actually lived up to its name, with lots of cheese and heat. Irish Curry was tasty with a slow developing heat to enhance the flavor. Menu was diverse and full of choices.

We stopped in for a drink and appetizer. Great place to watch a sporting event. The bartender had all the baseball games going. Nice beer selection. We had the deep fried chicken dumplings. Very good. The bartender was very attentive. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Casual pub atmosphere that was perfect for our family with young kids. We went at 7 on a Wednesday night and it was pretty empty so there was no wait. I highly recommend the Shepard’s Pie.
