“Ribs smell and service was a disiaster!”
Reviewed 25 March 2013 via mobile

I was in town for a summit and wanted to have steak and good beer. This is suppose to be an Irish pub home of the best beers and meat. I ordered the rib eye as I read from a review here that it was superb, tasted like rubber. The baby back was as disappointed as the steak, it smells and there was no smokey flavor at all. The waitress seem to not have product knowledge and when asked had to look at the menu again. I complained of the ribs and the waitress just kept quite as though its always been that way and never repaired. I asked for Irish beer, they only have local and Heineken, could've get those anywhere else. The sauce for the rib eye steak was sweet, I couldn't tell whether its sweet and sour or oriental. The place was run down and smoking sections was for all table. Kids and infant can have a breath of 2nd hand smoke for free. I've been in the culinary business for more than 2 decades and never have I had the most terrible dinner night in my entire profession. Not recommended and never ever going back.

“Environment is Great BUT most of foods are BAD”
Reviewed 25 January 2013

I order couple of items from menu. one of them is Spaghetti prawn, when it arrived, it was shrimp instead of prawn, the noodle are like rubber. the parmesan cheese was already OLD, taste NOT great at all. Their ribs are great, their pizza was too small for the price that you pay. their Heineken beer is Cheap.

i order french fries with my ribs but i received mashed potato, when i ask the server to clarify my order, she simply ask me back" so, what do you plan me to do?" What the HELL??? it was POOOOORR service.

this is my first time to eat there and it will be my last too. overall was Poor.

A great place to blow the froth off a few . The staple Baby Back Ribs have retained consistency over the years .

“great ribs! great fish n chips! good ol' comfort food!”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

This is a one of a kind Irish pub and most probably the only one in town that stands independently. Man, they have killer baby back ribs,fish, decent pastas,all the good grilled stuffs! The fish n chips? It's gonna beat others making the same,even the original will nod an agreement

“Best rib in town!”
Reviewed 10 October 2012

The ribs are awesome but quite pricey though.
Building needs renovation and they should provide non smoking area! Provide more sofa please for comfy atmosphere.
