    If you go on the weekend at lunch they serve a Full Irish breakfast with bangers, rashers, two eggs, black and white pudding and soda bread. Incredibly authentic and tasty. Get a pot of tea also.

    Everything on the menu is delicious! Steak and Guinness Pie is outstanding. A pot of tea is a necessary part of the experience too. And sit in the bar for a great live music show.

    OK, the Irish food here is great. That's a no brainer! However, the live authentic Irish music is what I'll be driving back to Nashville to experience again. Sit downstairs near the stage and enjoy!

    Special order a burger topped with corned beef and chipotle mayo and your heart will be humming. I asked for it and they made it! Hopefully they'll put it on the menu when they go to print.

    CJ is a great server. Get a booth next to the Irish Sessions the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month. Chef salad without meat is great.

    The corn beef bites (sliders) are incredible. The upstairs can be rented out for functions and sports games. Live Irish music at 6 on most nights.

    You've got to try the Scottish eggs and the black & tan onion rings. I've yet to get anything here that I didn't like though.

    If you’re heading to Nashville, you have to stop in at McNamara’s Irish Pub and Restaurant for some Shepard’s Pie that tastes like it was made right in the center of Dublin.
