Stopped for dinner tonight, what a treat. We were seated right away, a cordial server, Jill, greeted us. After taking drink orders we finally decided what to eat. Our dinners were delicious! Portions were plentiful, & I could substitute a salad for fries. The pub...More

We had a super meal before going to a concert -- the service was good. The place is a wee bit noisy, but it is an Irish pub! Lots of atmosphere, and the pints were perfect! Great location!

It's right off the speed line and a great place to stop for a great Guinness and some yummy food. Feels like you are walking into a pub in Ireland and there's always a soccer game to catch on tv!

Piled in at 7am to watch the EPL, place was already busy with fans from both teams. A good atmosphere, service was prompt and attentive. Breakfast menu is quite varied and lots of good choices. Food came out well cooked and hit the spot!

Classic Irish pub in downtown Philly has the traditional pub food and good selection of drinks and beers and Guinness on tap. Service was good; TV monitors were showing good selection of sports.

I made a reservation over the phone. Table was ready when we got there. Server was very good. Food was good and reasonably priced for the area. Overall a good experience.

We chose to eat here for the first time due to recommendations from theatre goers and we love irish pubs. The menu is very limited, both food and drinks. The dessert menu only had 2 items. We ordered whiskey sours. They were awful. Nothing close...More

My son and I have eaten here a couple times this year. We sat outside and enjoyed the sights of the city. We had fish and chips both times and they were quite good.
