    Lobster night(s) used to pack house. On lobster night under new ownership a sparse crowd and nary a lobster in sight. 2 drinks/appetizer per lobster. Only here to use a CL deal (not good w/ specials).

    What an awesome looking bar with a great selection. However the owner is an asshole for leaving one employee FOH to take care of 30 people on a Saturday. Shame! And kudos to his one employee battling

    Nick knows how to make a great not-too-sweet cocktail! The Wasabi Fries are a must. Good live music.

    American sports bar would describe it better. Note to owner if reading : A drink named a car bomb is offensive and no respectable Irishman would buy one or sell one.

    This used to be one of our favorite haunts. Now, the deals are lame, the fare is mediocre and the place is practically empty during the week when it used to be packed.
