    It's a decent enough bar, but a too corporate-looking for my tastes. For more interesting digs try The Quarry House nearby.

    Shepard's pie was excellent. Wash It down with a cold draft and the night is going pretty good.

    For vegetarians: the chickpea burger? Not so great. Stick to the black bean!

    One of the few places in the area open after 10pm. Good environment for the over-college-aged crowd.

    Shephards pie is good... but show up before 7pm and get the irish club (5 bucks)... tasty and way to much food. Wash it down with a Guiness - cause its an irish pub.

    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.
