Good place for lunch or after work happy hour. Meet up place with the younger crowd and some middle age folks. Casual dining with great beer selection. Dana Point Plaza by Hobies Sports store.

We eat here regularly and love the fact that they allow dogs (on the patio only). For people that are not comfortable with dogs the interior is dog free. The restaurant is very easy to get to from anywhere in SoCal since it is about 80 feet from the railroad station in SJC. The food is good, but not really what one would call Irish food (more like SoCal pub food) but is is good and priced reasonably. The burgers are always good and the ahi tacos are very good. Parking can be difficult on some nights and weekends. Get there early for easier parking and happy hour discounts. Breakfasts are good and are reasonable.

Stopped with lunch with son and family. Option of indoor or outdoor eating. We stopped around 2:30 on a Saturday, place was not real busy. Friendly waitress and immediate service. I ordered the hamburger with egg on top. Can be cooked to order. Hamburger arrived cooked correctly. Side order of fries were very good. Our grandson orded calamari; said it was "yummy". Others in party were satisfied with their orders. Food is California priced, hamburger w/ fries around $12; other food similarly priced. Overall, my impressions were favorable and I would be willing to return.

This is a great restaurant. The food is so good. They don’t have a very large menu for dinner mostly sandwiches and salads but I ordered the steak with the mashed potatoes and spinach. I like the atmosphere because you can sit out back outside on a patio . The cocktail was good but a little weak .

Salads are big, hamburgers are the best! Nice location across from the Mission. Our server was great, and provided good service.
