Close to our hotel so we gave it a shot. Sat at the bar, the bartender Mark was awesome. So friendly and helpful. Fish and chips were to die for and loved our specialty drinks. Would definitely go again :)

A friend had been here and wanted to go after dinner. Great atmosphere, waitstaff was attentive. Beer selection was outstanding and Irish car bomb is a must. Next time will try the food.
