This is a wonderfully fun place especially when there's someone at the piano. The piano player was talented and really funny and had an amazing knack of getting the entire crowd (small or large) to participate in the fun. While the food is only average the overall experience is amazing. Highly recommend.

Great place to enjoy a drink and a cigar outside by the riverwalk or move inside for a good Irish pub/piano bar atmosphere. Anya, our server, was a rockstar. She was always one step ahead of us on our drinks. Most important was that she was engaging. She kept me on my toes, got my jokes and gave back a... More

A bit rustic, but a lot of fun with the hilarious dude playing the piano. A must stop nightly. Right on the River.

Well the music is silly fun, the beer is expensive, and the food... skip it. Received wrong order for one entree. The $18 Cobb salad... small and nothing special. I think everyone's fingerprints were imprinted on the edge of the plate. Never seen such a mess. Had a better salad and cheaper from hotel room service. Positives: quick patio seating... More

What a fun bar on a rainy day. Irish coffee hit the spot! Peanuts! The piano players are a hoot. We didn't eat a meal, just had Guinness and Irish coffee.

This bar warmed us up on a cold, rainy day. The heaters were wonderful! So was the food and the drinks! Portions were big, but I managed not to waste anything!

Came on a busy Friday night. The place was packed. Able to find a table outside that we squeezed into. Service was lacking. We had to wait quite a long time to get refills on our beverages. Probably not all the waitresses fault but the establishment should be better prepared and have more servers available when larger crowds are expected.

This place is super fun. The piano player is what makes this place awesome. If you want to laugh and just have a good ole time on the riverwalk this is the place. So many places to eat on the riverwalk, but this is the place to drink some really delicious beer and have a light appetizer. Sing along and... More
