Very classic Irish bar, with lots of fun decor. Live music at night, but we went earlier for a quieter meal. Reuben egg rolls were delicious. The bangers were a little cold, but the brisket was fabulous. Huge burgers. Diverse selection of whiskeys and beer.

Joined 20 or so friends for lunch. Service was quick and efficient. My "codwich" sandwich was good, but accompanying fries were a bit on the "barely warm" side, otherwise I would have rated higher. You've got to serve fries hot.
