The atmosphere is always good regardless of the time of the year. Food is very good. Much better than a lot of similar places in the area, and priced well too. It's been a solid place for year and still is.

Sat on the patio and enjoyed the cars going by. Good hearty food. Watch out for the onion rings!!! WOW, never had rings so battered and big! I thought it was an order of fish and chips! Beer was good and cold and server was pleasant. Would recommend for lunch on a nice sunny day

I am vegetarian and made it very specific to the server that we are "very strict " vegetarian. No meat , fish before placing the order. First order came out and it had chicken underneath the food. Very rude on their part. No apology . Asked to pay for drinks . Is a NO NO visit place .

Decided to try restaurant/bar out was in town for a business meeting. Checked menu out online sounded good. Was disappointed that menu in restaurant was different from the one online. There were choices I would have tried but were not available. Food was average. Service was excellent. Atmosphere was good.

This is a great pub. The buffalo wings are the best. I don't really eat a lot of chicken wings but these are substantial, crispy and spicy, the epitome of what a wing should be. Oh yes, everything else is good too.

Irish pubs typically have few seats. While the bar area is more in line with this mentality, it still has more seats that in the home land. We opted for the back room which is much more quiet, and nicely decorated, and has a large fireplace that kicks out heat if running. We stopped in for a beer (good selection... More

If you like Irish Red Ale try the Smithwicks pint….very yummy. Our server recommended the Cod fish and chips basket. It was delicious and spot on. Started to pick up around 9 pm with local talent and local musical talent. Highly recommended in a great city and location.

Get a Two Hearted Ale and watch baseball or soccer. Will satisfy the last call, or pint you want from an Irish Pub. Average rating due to it just being "there". They don't do anything great, but always there, dependable.

We were here with a group of about 35, seated in the back in a comfortable private room. I was impressed with the quick and efficient service for our group and their willingness to do separate checks. I had a Maurice salad, which was large and very good, My husband had a huge corned beef sandwich with sweet potato fries.... More
