Great place to meet with colleagues or friends for lunch. The outdoor patio is an added bonus when the weather is a willing participant.

We stopped in on a Monday night, after 10pm for a late bite and a drink. A handful of people were sitting at the bar, which was a very cool setup. Really captured the feeling of an authentic Irish pub. Had many beers on tap and really cool craft cocktails. Food was excellent! Had the blarney bread, outstanding! Fish tacos... More

Your typical Irish pub and grill, with many traditional Irish menu items. Wide selection of burgers and beverages. Reasonable prices. Not outstanding, but still darn good!

Of you are on the fence about the pie, get it! You will not regret the choice. I have a hard time ordering anything else.
