From the menu to the atmosphere, you can feel the luck o' the Irish. Staff were attentive and pleasant. Provided great recommendations. We watched their interactions with their regulars- seemed like a big family. Don't miss out.....eat & drink here!

Excellent menu; quality Irish food and service!! It is across the street from Embassy Suites---walking distance. It has a much better menu and prices than the hotel.

Can't complain, the beer was cold and the wifi was free. What more do you want on a warm Florida afternoon.

Looks just as an old Irish pub in Cork. Good beer selection from the tap and they have Guinness. We did not eat, but they appear to have good pub food. The waiter was friendly. We went back several times during our stay.

I always visit this place before I go on a cruise. It sits on 17th street opposite the Embassy Suites hotel. Great beer service and great food. Weekends there is sometime a live band in there and get really busy. They have free WiFi aswell

Authentic Irish pub full of character and characters. We serve great food from traditional favorites like fish 'n chips and shepherd's pie to lamb chops and T-Bone steaks. With over 20 imported beers on draft your spoiled for choice when it comes to drinks, so stop by and meet our friendly staff and maybe even catch a game on one of our 16 flatscreen TVs.
