    The food is traditional Irish fare at moderate prices. Great live music. The patio is huge and beautiful. Drinks a bit on the pricier side but worth it for the atmosphere.

    Burgers are good, but order usually overcooked so order 1 down (ie "medium" for a "medium well")

    Great live Irish music and the best patio in St. Louis. Enjoy dinner on the patio and then come inside for an Irish coffee or one of their aged Irish whiskeys and enjoy the music.
