Went on a recent Sunday to view a certain sporting event with some other fans.... to try and make it merrier i invited some people. Got a high top table and started to order some drinks and watch the game....like everyone else around us.The table had eight of us and two got up to leave...we were all still sitting there watching and the waitress came over with the bill??? Thinking something had happened i walked up to the waitress station and asked if it was change in shift..a different waitress who looked at me with puzzlement said no. I paid the bill and ordered from the bar and kept watching the second half. HINT if your going to show a game and seat people at tables you might only sell drinks

We were here on St. Patick's Day and enjoyed the live music and beverages. There was a limited menu, which we understood but they ran out of the non-red meat food option early. The only thing available was the kids' chicken fingers and fries. The sweet potato fries were good but the chicken was four tiny bites of chicken.

Server was great, despite the chaos around and got our items in pretty good time.

This Irish bar is pretty much exactly what you would expect it to be. It has an outstanding selection of 31 different draft beers and a comfortable Irish bar ambiance. The food is unexciting so it's more of a watering hole than a dinner destination.
It also has a Benjamin Button thing going on where it attracts a mixed age clientele in the late afternoon and early evening and then gets progressively younger until there is a line of 23 year-olds waiting to get in on the weekends. So, depending on your age, plan your arrival accordingly.

Table of 8. Not one person was ok with their food, and the appetizers we shared were lame. Vegs tasted like they were fried in old fryer oil. Fish and chips were like they came from the grocery freezer. Chicken is mainly bones.

Its a good pub with a fireplace if you can get a seat there. Nothing really special about the place, typical pub atmosphere...bonus is that, at least in winter, every other establishment closes it doors/last call ~10:30pm...this place closes @12:30.
