    I went there on Independence day with 6 of my co-workers because one of them liked that restaurant. The guy who welcomed us was nice and helpful. But when the waitress came to take our order everything changed. She ( her name is Maria ) was unpleasant and didn't hesitate to show us how bored she was waiting for our order. Her face was speaking more than words. She never smiled or welcomed us. She had the worst attitude I've ever seen for a waitress and she ruined our night. She never came back after the order and another waiter ( much more friendly and professional ) came to take care of us. I will never go there again.

    Went for a late dinner. Food was decent, atmosphere was great (sat outside and had outstanding live music)... service was non-existant. Waiter NEVER took our drink order or even asked if we wanted a drink. Was able to order some food finally, got our own drink (water) refills by stopping other servers passing by. Saw our server a total of 3 times in 1.5 hrs. Wanted dessert and maybe an Irish coffee to cap off the night but by the time we finally saw our waiter the 3rd time he was delivering our check so we just finally gave up and left. Could be a neat little place to hang if the service wasn't so poor.

    Food was great. Cozy, tables inside and out. I love the variety of the menu because I had small children. We walked around for about 20 minutes looking at the menus for different restaurants. This restaurant offered something that everyone would enjoy.

    Great atmosphere for an Irish pub; I even heard what sounded like an actual group of Irishmen at the bar. I had the Shepard's Pie which was great. Tasted absolutely fresh with good flavor. The beer selection was lacking. They had the typical quasi craft beer (Sam Adams, Lagunitas, etc.), One local beer, and one self-branded beer. It was worth the try.

    Great pub with some real nice authentic Irish food. Some real Irish born staff too which gives authenticity to the place. We sat outside. Great buzz. Restaurant and bar was bust with lots of families and friends or work colleagues hanging out. We shared a fisherman’s platter and cheese board. Very tasty. Not really enough bread for the amount of meats and cheeses however and considering its being shared, they could do with upping the bread portion size. While we had some issues with our Waitress, who had a bit of attitude with her not understanding our requests and orders, it didn’t negatively impact our overall experience. This could easily become our local watering hole as its right up the street from many of our offices. Good value for money overall...just a few more hunks of bread!!!😉
