Even on a Saturday night, prime time for diners, the restaurant lived up to its' reputation. Good service despite the crowd. Food was tasty and well prepared. Attentive service despite rush hour.

I go to this restaurant allot. On St Patty's day we had the Corned Beef and Cabbage for 3.99. It was great. We go there for dinner often and never have had a bad meal.

Decent food with plenty of options for everyone. If you're into beer they have a huge selection. Plenty of parking in the lot in back and outdoor seating in the warmer weather.

We went out shopping in freehold, checked trip advisor to find a suggested place to eat and I'm glad we trusted everyone's reviews! Amazing jack Daniels burger and sweet potato fries! It's an Irish type bar, relatively quite though with a decent amount of people.

Go here a lot with my co workers, especially in the summer. Arielle is the best server! She always remembers what drinks we get and gives us great service every time. For fellow people in the food industry this means a lot after a long day of working in a restaurant.

We come here often. The only reason for 4 stars is in the winter the seating is tight. Food and service is always good. The fresh guacamole is a fantastic started. Go enjoy some great food and cold drinks!

Thursday prime ribs is delicious and big. All other servings are large also. Prime rib is shareable for two like we did. Quiet atmosphere. Great food for a bar.
