This is not an Irish pub by any standard. The sheppard pie was nothing I would call Irish. Globally ridiculous food like a cheese burger or pulled pork sandwich. We had way better food in any pub in Ireland .

This place is the same as it was 20 years ago. Solid service, good beer and pub food. Not fancy, but reliably good. The portabella mushroom sandwich was not bad. A short walk from union station

Very crowded when we arrived but wait staff was fast and efficient. They have a great selection of ice cold beer. The food was good. We are never disappointed here.

Had their Cowboy burger with fries and a local IPA (draft). Beer was good, burger wasn't. The service was fast and the waitress was friendly. The place is a dive, but I kind of like it.

Staff and bartenders though overwhelmed were very friendly and efficient at bringing our drinks. Front door staff were professional and kept their cool when overwhelmed at the front door.

A great hang out to enjoy a drink and snacks - reasonably priced and quality is good. This pub has a very loyal following who regularly visit or those in town for various events. They are very supportive of the law enforcement community and in...More

We had the pizza loaf and a couple beers. Appetizer was average, beer was nice and cold. Friendly service, fun location to sit outside and people watch if you can ignore the crazy birds :)
