Irish bars never cease to amaze me. I've found them from Poland to Japan and they never disappoint. This one was no different. There is a pool table, some darts, and a couple TV's either playing sports or epic fails. We went in there for a beer and some irish bar ambience. I ended up trying the reuben sandwich, which...

The reuben here is huge and one of the best I have ever had. The fish and chips is also great. For an appetizer I had calamari, also superb.

Very casual restaurant and bar. Food we ordered was okay, corn beef and scotch egg were dry and greasy. Shepherd's pie was good, had chunks of beef instead of ground beef (even though traditional ones have lamb, it tasted good). Baked potato was tasty. Drinks were okay. Service was average, a bit on the slow side (neither good nor bad),... More

Carried out a corn beef sandwich which was very good. Because of the packed crowd they substituted chips for the fries.

I'm from Boston so I was delighted to find an Irish pub in South Padre Island. It is small place but the drink selection was good and they have huge TVs plus digital darts and a pool table.

Love Shepard's Pie, but here it was dry and too salty. No gravy on or around pie. Fellow diner had Rueben and said it was very good. Thought it was slightly over priced for the fare offered.

I had a Kelly burger, burger w/ corned beef and my husband had fish and chips. It was the perfect end to a day in the sun. 70s/80s rock playing we left feeling great and relaxed.

We loved the gargantuan Reuben sandwich, but would not order the Corned Beef and Cabbage again, because it was a cabbage in broth on the bottom and topped with dry, shredded corned beef sprinkled on top. We know that Corned Beef and Cabbage is an American, NYC, concoction. The true Irish dish is made with bacon and isn't as popular... More

Food is pretty good, recommend sticking to the Irish fare though. Scottish Eggs are great! Alcohol is a little higher than most area restaurant's.
