It’s a pub. It claims to be Irish, but the food is terrible. The bar tender had terrible service as well when I visited a while back. Recommended the fries extra crispy when I ordered. So I said yeah I’ll give it a shot. Fries...More

New restaurant within the last 2 yrs ... should be over the hiccups of newness, but it is not. They are expanding, which is nice. But service needs to be beefed up considerably. Food is average to above -average.

This place is a great addition to Cobleskill. The owners did such an incredible job making the place look like an expensive Irish Tavern with the wood, stained glass, and other beautiful touches. The bartender crafts specialty drinks around local products. He also crafts some...More
