I love Irish Pub's and I love this place. I have been here numerous times as I visit the Peoria area. Probably my favorite place to go for food and drinks in Peoria. Sit inside, sit outside, just go!

Had enjoyed the beer here and needed to return for dinner. Friendly, fast & social-able service. Busy, but gave us good attention. Had the Portobello Sandwich & Guinness Roast Beef. Delicious! Pricing very reasonable. Atmosphere rustic & quaint.
