We stopped two nights here for drinks. There was an excellent band playing Friday night. Gets crowded and a small bar but worth the visit. The beer is cold and excellent service.

We always go here for a traditional Irish breakfast when visiting our son at the Academy. You can’t go wrong with authentic Irish food, in a nice cozy environment with NO TVs! That’s right, even in the bar you can have good, old fashioned conversations!...More

This place has been a restaurant forever. The food is very good Irish fare. I believe they have acoustic music during Sunday brunch.

Our group of six went here for dinner and found a packed house. The atmosphere was nice but very busy and crowded. The food was very good but one disappointment was that they were out of one dish desired by two of us.
