    Do not order the corn beef and cabbage, its like chewing on a football. Otherwise it's a great bar.

    I think this restaurant is so good. Easy to park(street) and approach. Food and people are so good. But inside is little bit complicated.

    The DJ was the only decent person there. Bartenders were rude. The crowd was obnoxious and inappropriate. We were told this was a great local place. Would not recommend going.
