Went here in the evening for a bit of food and got shepards pie, the potato was almost watery and in general it didn't taste great. Bar was dead and almost felt like we were interrupting a conversation when we walked in the door. Anyone looking for an authentic irish pub should look elsewhere.

Definitely a neighborhood place, but don't feel intimidated by that. Friendly, good food. I can see where parking could be a bit of a challenge, but I've been to places with worse parking.

Small pub, interesting decor. A limited menu, albeit decent food! Good, fast service. We will visit it again!

We've visited the original Durty Nelly's in Ireland so when we happened upon the San Francisco version we immediately dropped in for a pint. The craic (Irish for great conversation) was fantastic....the bartenders are all from Ireland and they are fabulous. This place is tiny and very much like all of the pubs in Ireland we enjoy, with surprisingly great... More

A somewhat rustic, but friendly place for a pint of good Guinness and a nice hearty meal. It is, more or less, a neighborhood sports bar, but with an authentically genial bartender (the after we were there) and a great all around vibe. I’d like to try out their trivia night sometime too.

This pub just happened to be located around the corner from our vacation rental. I'm glad it was because it was fun. The crowd is mixed and happy (think "Cheers".) The food was good. We especially enjoyed the curry fries and bangers and mash. Services was fine.

We came here with friends and had a great evening. Small Irish pub with good food, good service, and even a fireplace and acoustic music (we were there on Saturday night). The food is standard pub fare, but some selections that you don't find everywhere else. Try the chicken curry fries, or the lamb burger. Both were very good. The... More
