    Great Irish pub in a location that might be surprising. They should open another.

    The atmosphere of this place is one of my favorites! Best Irish pub around. Get the cobblestones. Wait staff is super friendly. The times that I've been there for live music have always been fun.

    Come on Wednesdays, drink special that's something like $1 off Irish beers when they already have low prices. $2 for a pint of Smitchwicks!

    I reiterate my previous statement that trivia here sucks. Poorly written, poorly researched, poorly run.

    Be smart if you don't want to get towed. Don't park in a space that is off street in front of a business they will tow even if it's closed.
