    Smith's did Ice Cream For Breakfast today (February 1st) and served an amazing waffle with MollyMoons balsamic strawberry ice cream. Combined with maple syrup... Deliciousness!

    If you are comfortable with animal heads on the wall, you'll love this place. Has a satisfying macaroni and cheese and one of the best burgers in the city.

    Chicken and waffles - definitely not the best in the city, but pretty darn good. And super fast!

    The best Irish 🍀 food I've had in the states. The perfect place to come in from the cold and enjoy 😊 some comfort food.

    Awesome grilled cheese and other upscale pub food, and a strong beer selection. Avoid the marrow bones.

    Service has deteriorated. Spent 5 minutes waiting for the hostess to make an appearance, after which she seemed inconvenienced. Left 20 minutes later after no recognition from any of the staff.

    Chef Tyler Palagi is in charge of what the menu modestly calls "grub." Some of it is just the sort pub-crawlers crave after one too many bourbon lemonades or "blujitos." Read more
