Would not have known it was an Irish pub unless I had already read it. Country music, inattentive staff. Food was fine, but pretty standard bar fare. Not a bad place, but probably will not go back.

Yes! I went here alone and had a great time.
Am I likely to need to book a table for a week night in December? Also do they still do how I met your mother Monday's? Thank you
