Very good Irish Pub with a nice selection of menu items. Fresh fish special was nicely prepared. Friendly staff. Hidden behind a gas station but worth the effort in getting there.

We went there for the first time today. We had the buffet. I will tell you everything was GREAT. The food was out of this world and the service was excellent. We will go back there many times.
