The bar/restaurant definitely had character. It is Irish themed but only a few Irish options. We found opportunities with overall cleanliness. The bathrooms were out of soap, not very clean and smelled. The food was average, portions were big and the service was mediocre. Staff...More

Never had a bad meal here yet! I mostly order wings and/or the surf & turf special. Parking's tough, but worth a stop.

The service in this bar was excellent. We absolutely loved our waitress who was extremely attentive and funny. Food and drinks were good. We had the quesadillas, chicken wings, and the onion rings. All were delightful (especially the garlic parm wings!!!)

Nothing to look at from the outside but decent Irish Pub feel on the inside. A bit dark if you are sitting in the back. Cheesesteak and Hot Ham and Cheese were very good and filling. A good place for lunch after taking the tour...More

The food is good, it's more like a bar, though. So, if you're looking for some place for more of a bridal lunch, I would say no.
