    If you like Irish Whiskey try the cask strength 12-yr Red Breast. It's what dreams are made of.

    Sarah was incredibly sweet to our daughter!! And oh yeah, get the chicken curry... Amazing!!

    Many of the staff are straight from Ireland, so expect an accent to accompany whatever it is you're drinking. Ice-cold Guinness, Irish car bombs and creative, quick-hitting cocktails abound. Read more

    Cool place if you can get a seat or served, it gets overly crowded on weekends that makes the experience unworthy

    Great fish and chips! Also one of the few places that offers a real snakebite: Guinness and cider.

    They have a real working fireplace, which is a great spot to warm up during the colder months. We just love the Jameson Glazed Steak Tips.

    Used to be the best Reuben in town, now it's got brown and tough roast beef. Honestly a disappointment. So, I will recommend elsewhere... Fish and chips are still good.

    Don't listen to Tim's tip- Be "original" by playing Droplick Murphey's? That's not original. It's great the way it is, 3 distinct zones of music and atmosphere keeps us here every weekend.

    C'mon, RiRa, be authentic. Don't play friggin' Deejay music on a Saturday night. If you can't afford an Irish singer, just play Flogging Molly/Dropkick Murphys/U2. Otherwise, you're just another gener
