Good Irish pub with bar food and decent menu. Enjoyed the Irish nachos and they have an outdoor smoking patio!

Looking for a place to have a few drinks and a bite in a casual pub type atmosphere? You will do well here. They have a good selection of beers and other drinks. Their small plates are creative and tasty. And their staff is friendly....More
