Great selection of menu items that include traditional Irish Dishes. I have had the Fish & Chips and also their Prime Rib. Both dishes were excellent. Good selection of draft beers available also.

I was visiting my aunt in Cobleskill and she recommended this place. We were greeted warmly at the door and promptly seated. The hostess was very nice and mentioned the specials right up front. This is standard pub fare but the sandwiches we were served...More

We have been to this restaurant many times, and have always been disappointed! It's a relatively new business and we assumed they just needed to figure things out. We heard there was a new 'chef' so tried it again. Steak was fatty and tough and...More
