    Visiting from Manhattan, the Lobster spring roll app was yummy, bartender John was a sweetie, and despite being nervous about parking my Benz, was very happy with the bar!! Check it out! :)

    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.

    Good spot for Hartford bars. Local favorite with good beer selection. Irish through and through. Live music is good when they have it. Went on St. Paddy's day and it was rowdy.

    Easily the best on tap selection in Hartford. You'll find some great beers that I haven't seen on tap since I came back from Belgium. Great beer, good food, awesome atmosphere. Highly recommended.

    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!

    Enjoy trivia? They have a super-sized six-round competition on Tuesday nights and the top three scorers take home $50 gift cards. Grab a Half Door Passport and get 20% off pints during event nights. Read more

    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.

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