It's a very decent Irish pub, the food was great, the service was excellent. We sat by the fireplace - very cozy.

A couple words why it's not perfect.

First off, they were out of a couple things I tried to order, like Murphy's stout and a chicken dish. Not a big deal, they had adequate replacements. Well, I ordered fish and chips, a classic dish which is served in every pub around the world. The fish was fine but the fries were kinda like McDonalds ones, thin and golden, that's a bit off from the traditional thick cuts usually served for this dish. They were totally fine chips, just didn't look Irish.

Overall, we had a great time and enjoyed the meals, place and service, I kinda feel sorry I can't give them the perfect score.

I went here with a couple of friends before a Twins game mainly due to the location. We had a really good time, great selection of beers, good snacks and the staff was incredibly attentive. Actually we had such a good time that we stopped on the way back to our cars after the game and had the same positive experience. The location got us here, the food, staff and drinks brought us back.

We stopped here after a twins game because of its close proximity. However, the servers were rude and annoyed with any requests. They need to be more accommodating to keep their business

This is a fun Irish pub, very close to Target Field so a visit after the Twins game was just a quick stroll. Good beer and good service.

Great place to eat right next to the Target Center and across from the Graves 601 Hotel. Very nice atmosphere. Only getting a rating of 4 due to poor wait staff. It was starting to get busy before our concert and things went downhill. Not enough staff at the time to keep up with all the customers.
