Classic Irish pub downstairs, lots of seating outdoors upstairs - very pleasant. The hamburgers are the fatty kind that college students love. Fish and seafood is fresh and tasty. Great place.

Stopped in on a rainy Wednesday evening. Decent pub food - salads and burgers. Service slow but waitress apologized. Not in a big hurry anyway - give it a go under the right circumstances.

Great burger and taco restaurant, with other basic pub food. Quality is above average for a pub. Good service and atmosphere. And they served Dos Equis Amber draft beer (my favorite).

Service was great! The food was very good but they had run out of steamed lobster, which was a bummer. But for "bar food" it was excellent and I would not call it bar food at all!!

We were very pleased to have someone on the street recommend Joshua's Tavern. Delicious lobster stew and efficient friendly service in a busy restaurant.
