Stopped by late night to get some food and drink. Nice selection of beer on tap. Menu was a full menu at 10 PM. Unheard of! Our chicken sandwich was great. Our beer was fantastic. The bartender was also great. They do have karaoke which was loud and proud tonight but it is only later at night. Nice patio outside.... More

Great atmosphere with the best mixologist in Tampa Bay making your drinks, Chris! Didn't get to taste the food, that will be next time.

Was in Tampa on business and staying just around the corner at the Garden Inn. Got back to hotel late - kitchen closed. Went to the James Joyce to eat as it was the closest place with an open kitchen (surprised to find most places closed at 10pm). Great service, great food - and great beer and whiskey. Went back...

This restaurant has a small menu but good choices. It includes several traditional Irish foods and some American food too. They offer quick service at reasonable price.

Not exactly a pub atmosphere, as there are sevenTVs, plus a projection screen app. eight feet diagonal. 50 beers on tap, good selection of pub food, including bangers, shepherd's pie, fish & chips, plus typical American fare. Definitely will come again.

Chris welcomed us with knowledge and great input. From the menu to the beer and to the Irish whiskey. Felt comfortable with the whole vibe and even though we were the obvious "out of towners" were not treated as such. Set right at ease. With past history stories to area advice. So would go back and definitely recommend to anyone... More
