Description
Traveling from Toronto to Kingston my family and I stopped here for lunch following positive reviews on web. We received a warm, friendly welcome. Enjoyed great fish and chips, chicken wings and burgers. The place was decorated with all sorts of interesting memorabilia from Ireland. Unfortunately we were unable to stay for a music session which I believe are amazing. The cost was very good value and I would highly recommend it to other visitors.
