In town for a conference and tried to find somewhere to eat without paying outrageous price for everyday food. Stumbled on this place walking around and decided to try. All of us got sandwiches and of course booze! Reuben very good and dressings were homemade making it even better. Lovely service and quiet enough you could enjoy each other's company. Total cost of sandwich and a drink was under $15. Makes a per diem go much further!

Great food and good atmosphere. Went twice in two weeks. Miss it already. Got the bangers and mash one time and the shepherds pie. Both were great. Friends loved the need stew.

Not sure if it was because we were hungry but the food was delicious. We had the brown bread, calamari, and the crap dip as starters. The corned beef and cabbage, fish and chips, pork chop, and burger meals all came out as expected and were decent portions. Our waiter, Andrew, was very attentive and almost stealth! We would definitely come again if in the area.

My husband and I came in before a Pier Six Pavilion concert on a Thursday evening and loved that the menu is modern Ireland-- that is-- not just traditional Irish pub food but some lighter dishes as well as we found during a 2011 tour of the island.
My husband ordered bangers and mash and savored the traditional way they were made; I ordered a spinach and strawberry salad with blue cheese and an order of appetizer size mussels. Both were satisfying and delicious. The salad came on a plate with the spinach tossed and arranged like a hill with the strawberries arranged in a circle around the spinach. The spinach had been tossed with just the right amount of dressing. My only quibble is that the strawberries were cut in a way that made it obvious only about two to three strawberries had been used and in between each strawberry was a slice of a cherry or grape tomato. So, the salad was visually appealing but not really a strawberry and spinach salad- more like a spinach salad with a garnish of a couple sliced strawberries and grape tomatoes. Maybe they had run out of strawberries?
We liked the variety of spirits available and enjoyed pairing the best spirit for our food.
Finally, for a restaurant in an evermore upscale neighborhood (now with the Four Seasons nearby) we were thrilled to catch a good meal and drinks under $80 before heading off to the concert. We hadn't visited in years but were glad to get a chance to try it again.
This is a lively and friendly place to eat, even on an early evening.

We had a large group dine here recently and they handled us with great care and we were not waiting long for the food either. Brandon our waiter was awesome. The Brown Bread appetizer is fantastic. It comes out really hot with butter. Two small loaves. There were other appetizers that went over well also like the fried pickles. Main courses are varied and you are sure to find something. Salads and sandwiches along with typical Irish bar food. The beef and Guinness stew was really good. The mussels not so much. Good atmosphere and friendly staff. Happy hour prices available.

This is in walking distance from the hotels nearby. Although surrounded by restaurants in this area, this is a good, lower cost option for a relaxing and filling dinner.
