Good food, good drink prices, cool aesthetic and plenty of room for everyone. Doesn't feel as crowded as a typical bar. Really enjoy coming to this place

Quaint warehouse district ambience. Great Irish-American menu. I got the Bangers and Mash, while my wife got the Pot Pie. Both were very good. My only complaint would be that the "bangers" were pretty small, but they gave me several. Everything washed down well with...More

We normally enjoy coming here whenever we visit Peoria, but this last time, things seemed off. The music was crazy loud (which seemed odd since it was only 5:00), despite it being a very cold night, we were seated in the atrium next to the...More
