    Tried the Talisker 10 year on the rocks. Not bad, but too much iodine on the tongue for my taste.

    Summertime means the back patios open. Big screens out for sports viewing and you can still enjoy the Irish tunes from inside.

    Awful service. The food is mediocre, and the staff doesn't seem to care about the customer. We went to watch the World Cup game and nobody knew how to then on the TV.

    Poor service and unexperienced staff. Group of 4 might have to eat their meals off of their lap if they get seated at a 2 top. Upstairs only has 3 beer choices. Watch out getting handed old menu.

    It's an Irish pub done right: loud, abrasive, smelly and full of loud, abrasive, smelly people.
