    The Irish egg roles is a cool spin on corned beef and cabbage. The wonton wrap and the dubliner cheddar cheese taste awesome with the corned beef and cabbage.

    On a warm day wind your way up stairs to upstairs bar with outside patio. Just a few seats, great vantage onto King Street and the hustle and bustle of Old Town.

    Great service, fun atmosphere, hit or miss food with certain items. Appears that burgers turn out consistently well, but not so much for other entrees such as the chicken casserole and fish & chips.

    Great service - attentive, fast and with a smile. Nice rooftop patio. Tasty burger and ok pancakes - what we needed to power us back to DC via bike.

    Lots of seating, including a little outdoor patio upstairs that's nice for brunch. Since it's an Irish pub, it's good to go with the full Irish breakfast

    Scotch eggs, bangers and mash and Irish egg rolls are a must. They're excellent.

    Fun atmosphere and good service. Seems like standard pub fare rolls out consistently well, such as burgers. The other food was hit or miss, but I'd still return.

    Live traditional music on Monday evenings next to the main fireplace! (Good tunes - not the hokey stuff.)

    Love this pub but stick to the Irish food (which is good).There's a reason Dublin isn't famous for nachos.

    How can an Irish Pub run out of corned beef??? Food was good-not great but good! Waiter was personable and nice.

    I paid $25 for a 12oz ribeye that I ordered medium, but it came welldone in the middle and med rare on the edges. Overall not bad but expected better for the price and the (somewhat) limited menu.

    A good portion of the bar's adornments comes directly from Ireland! Owners had parts of buildings shipped to VA.

    Warning about the lamb stew: has an odd aroma of goat cheese. Not for me but may be for you

    This place has turned for the worse. My meal was disappointing. It's way too pricey for subpar food. Never returning if the menu stays the same.
