We stopped in for dinner on a Wednesday night, and we were seated and served right away. All the servers were kind and efficient. We really enjoyed the cozy atmosphere after a long day. The prices were reasonable for the serving sizes provided. Great spot right in the middle of everything with plenty of parking near by.

We came in for music and drinks and had a great time! The band playing was excellent, and we found a little nook under the stairs to the left of the stage. Had cocktails and a Guinness. It's touristy, but has a lot of history too.

Nice old fireplace and comfortable little corners to sit and enjoy a drink. Live music in the evenings too.

We had the potato soup and a pint for lunch. Great atmosphere, quick service and good food on a rainy day. I liked it. Worth a try if you're close by.

We were really looking forward to our planned lunch here. The building itself was the home of the Walsh family until the early 1960's. I frequented it many times over the years but was so disappointed today on revisiting after some years. It looked so inviting with the fires but the menu was disappointing.
