Had dinner at tis pub, Food was alright, oysters OK. Nice atmosphere, service a bit slow. Our server forgot too many things in our orders thats why I rate our visit just average.

Billed as an Irish pub. Not overly Irish on menu or ale offering. Service very slow. I sat watching three waitstaff chatting for a good five minutes before one came over to adjacent table before noticing me. Food was sub par. Bathrooms are unisex and smelled of urine and I couldn't get toilet to flush.

Obvious wait but put our names on the list, got beers and waited in an area designated. Enjoyed the time talking to others. Seated about 35 minutes later, inside. Staff hustling but attentive. Our drinks were served fast and our order taken. Food did not take long. Husband had the Christmas dinner, prime rib which he said was good. I... More

Excellent, well conceived, well executed menu. Did was fresh and homemade. Doug, our server, gave us excellent recommendations that were spot on for what we were looking for. Extensive drink and beer menu. Definitely a keeper.

We went early on a Thursday night and sat inside. There was a circle of musicians in the front playing Irish music which set the tone for the raucous atmosphere you would expect from an Irish pub. We started with the combo raw plate--6 raw oysters and 6 shrimp cocktail. The plate came out with a small cup of cocktail... More

Stopped in on a whim. Great choice. Music was authentic and entertaining. Bartender Joey was a blast. But absolutely loved our server Doug. He was so much fun, took prefect care of us, was there when we needed him but in no way made us feel rushed or anything. Even as busy as they were. He even remembered our drinks... More

We stopped in because it was off of the main drag by one street. There was a dairy allergy in our party and the hostess ran back and checked on the fish and chips and said it was dairy free so we went in. we sat in the back by the beer barrel wall(really cool). After ordering the appetizer, the... More
