Food was OK, but not worth the price. Fish breading was soggy. Nothing special regarding food flavor.
Waiter served hot rolls, but couldn't get his attention to get butter for them. (Only 1 other table eating at the time). So I asked a waitress instead and she threw 3 packs of FROZEN (not refrigerated) butter down on the table and said "I don't know how many you need" and quickly left to talk to her friends at the bar. When finished, she came to get my plate, all the while talking across the room to her friends.
We paid the bill and got up to leave, expecting ANYBODY to say goodbye or thank you or come again, but that didn't come.
We didn't feel very welcome. No wonder the place was almost empty on a Friday evening during spring break.

Our server was, well awful. After asking what we wanted to drink and a few requests we were told to forget about tea or water as the water was off. Ok, that happens on the island. When we asked is they could make lunch he said he hoped so. Why not say that right up front. We were obviously not on his radar that afternoon. When we ordered food the waiter said the hand cut fries were a specialty. So we asked what was served with them, "it shows on the menu". It didn't get better from there. Two at our table split a Reuben and they loved it. The hand cut fries disappointed. They were soggy and not hot although we were one of three tables. Others at our table ordered burgers and they were disappointing as well. As we continued our meal, a friend of our server brought in boxes of food from outside for them to eat at the bar. Perhaps we should have asked where their food came from.

What a great place to meet some friends, have a few drinks, best selection of genuine irish beers on the island, and to have some of the best irish cuisine you will find. The corned beef is to die for it will be my favorite bar on the island for as long as can make it in the door, or as long as the blue moon tap handle lasts, inside joke, go there, if you dont agree look in the mirror l cant wait to get back
