Live music makes this Irish pub feel traditional. The drink menu is extensive for whiskey, but fairly limited on beer. The food was good - I had a reuben, but it really needed more sauerkraut and thousand island. The soups were great. It certainly gets a bit loud later, though.

We stopped in for a pint and some lunch. Service was wonderful, food was really great and the cider on tap was fresh and delish. This pub really struck me as a very typical Irish pub in Ireland...except with better food.

We had our first meal of a business trip at this restaurant and it was delicious. I ordered the curry chicken served over French fries, due to the fact that this is a pretty unique offering, especially at an Irish pub. It was outstanding! Our waiter was super friendly- he helped us choose other places to go and told us what not to miss. He even recommended appetizer-sized portions to save money. I ordered a flight of their beer- I'm beer-savvy and it was all really good. The prices couldn't be beat, either. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Portland.

Went recently with friends for drinks and it was really bad, the beer was primarily "Kells" brand and was horrible. Stay in and drink draino, it will be more fun.

Stumbled across this while walking around. It was VERY busy so service was a little slow but understandable. Food was great and our server was very attentive to our large group. I will be back
