Great place to have a beer or two. I opted for the local brewed Pineapple Cider. Yummy! The menu offers various plates to tempt your palate. Fun place filled with locals.

James Joyce Irish Pub & Eatery is my favorite joint in Ybor City. I recommend the Scottish Egg and Shepherds Pie. Very deserving of the many awards received over the years.
