Description: A Wee Bit of Ireland in Downtown Fort Wayne
Reviewed 6 April 2018

A real find in downtown Fort Wayne -- an Irish pub with a great beer menu and thoughtful and extensive food offerings. At first I thought the waiter was going to be sort-of stand-offish, but he proved to be very helpful and quite personable. One unusual thing about their beer menu is that they offer blends of different types of drinks -- ales with stouts, stouts with ciders, etc. I didn't think I'd like this, but I had the Guinness mixed with Magner's Cider and thought it was pretty good. The pork shank entree was almost large enough for two people; the veggie blend with butternut squash, sweet potatoes and kale was delicious. I noticed that, although there is plenty of "Irish comfort food" on the menu, a vegetarian or even a vegan could get something tasty here. The dessert menu looked good, but I was much too full, after the pork shank, to try one.

Weeknight dinner during spring break. Food was great! We had shepherd’s pie and an awesome burger. The service was very good we’ll be back when we’re in town again.

Here on business, took a walk to DeBrand chocolates and found this gem. Had to duck in for an Irish mule, but saw that they also had gluten free beer on the menu. Cute place!

Very lively crowd, lots of different craft beers on tap. Food was good...especially enjoyed the seafood chowder (though it could have been hotter), burger and fries with malt vinegar and fish and chips. Attentive servers. Liked the booths for seating.

Stopped in for early dinner. Only bartender was visible. Not a people person. Food was average not worth a second chance. Sorry
