Not impressed, sorry. The good is they have Guinness on tap and Harps on tap. Waitress was nice enough but overworked. So much so we had to get our own placemats, clean the table, get our utensils and menus as well. I ordered the corned beef and cabbage. The cabbage tasted ok. The beef was partially cooked within the last... More

By far the best banana bread pudding ever! Old pub feel paired with excellent traditional Irish cuisine makes this spot the place to visit in Savannah, Georgia. Ask for Nick he will take good care of you! #greatservice!

This is a genuine Irish Pub, no TV's, just authentic Irish entertainment. Frank Emerson was there the night we went, and he is terrific! He has a wonderful voice, sings authentic Irish ballads and ditties, and is fun and entertaining.

We enjoyed their cold beers, and delicious Jameson's... More

Our party included two military members, and we were treated like royalty. Drinks were well poured, food was terrific, music was great. We only planned to spend long enough to have one drink and go to the bathroom, but we enjoyed ourselves so much we stayed for the music. We'll be back.
