    Wings are surprisingly good. Better late night grub than getting a burger from a fast food death joint.

    I love this place for a Guinness before a movie ....... they are not hiring enough people to help the huge crowd of people they get in there....either open another one close by or hire more people

    Underwhelmed by the bloody mary bar. No Worcester sauce and no real horseradish only a mayo blend... Great for a sandwiche but for a drink not so much... It hangs in oily clumps in the liquid... Yuck.
