We got here just as Happy Hour started. Looking at the beer list I figured the food would be secondary to the alcohol. I could not have been more wrong. I got the Rueben and I have to say it was one of the best Rueben's I have ever had. Better than most Deli's in NYC. The wife got a... More

We were referred to this restaurant by a friend. It was worth the 30 minute drive there. The waitress was spunky, the food was great, and the atmosphere was unique. The friend mushrooms were the best I've ever had. They are served with a roumalade (yes that is spelled wrong) sauce that is to die for. I had the Mac... More

Having been to both Britain & Ireland, I can say that the food here is incredibly authentic and delicious. Our waitress, Syd, couldn't have been more friendly, attentive, and professional. My wife and I will definitely be returning in the near future!

Good atmosphere. Good food. Good bar. You can eat inside or outside. 2nd time I've been and didn't have to wait for a table.

We eat here about 2-3 times a year. We are seeing some changes here. The menu continues to shrink. When they opened, the menu was like a book. Now it is a one fold. Many of the things that I have enjoyed in the past are no longer on the menu. It seems like the items being taken off the... More

This is a great place to hang out. It is the only place in LC with decent single malt scotch (that I could find). The artichoke dip and the bread pudding are to die for. Actually, that is all I eat there. I hear the fish and chips are good ;-)

My sister told me they served bar food but it was certainly not what I expected. No..not the same old fried food menu. We started with an avocado crab dip served with fried pita pieces. I had pecan crusted redfish with sweet potato fries. Husband had shepherds pie with squash/zucchini and glazed green beans. We both over ate. Will be... More

I had the shepherd's pie which was quite good. Hard to find around here. The beer is cold and the food is good. What more can I say?
