Primarily a watering hole that serves very average food. A great place for a drink after work with friends and a cheap snack. Always packed with interesting looking characters. Definitely a place to sit and watch personalities.

We came here to rest our legs after walking arounf the warf. The staff are friendly and made us feel welcome. We decided to extend our one pint stop to a few more and a bit of food. The pizza was very good and we enjoyed the nachos too. Our waiter was excellent. A great place to stop and enjoy... More

We were on our way back to our hotel when we heard the music, this is how we ended up at Mitchell's, we found a table ordered a nice cold beer and enjoyed the music, a nice end to the day.
