    When we arrived for our 5 o’clock reservation no one greeted us except a sign, it was, “seat yourself”. We found a small table for two in the back. The bar was already busy and it was noisy. We had 3 different women wait on us for drinks and meals. I ordered the bangers and mash which was just okay. I’ve had better in a number of Irish restaurants before. My wife ordered the walnut salad with chicken which was plentiful and she said it was good. I had ask one of our servers to make sure we got credit for dining on open table since one greeted us at the door and we sealed ourselves. I don’t think I’d eat here again mainly because of the noise level and the mediocrity of my meal.

    We dropped in for dinner while on a business trip. The restaurant is so interesting and lively the minute you walk in. The walls are plastered with law enforcement badges and stained glass of Irish men. The menu has plenty to choose from and the meat and potato pie was amazing!! Two of us had the fish and chips. Big portions. They had Guiness on tap and I had the blueberry mule. The star was Oz our server. He was so much fun, knew the menu and accommodated our every need. He made the entire visit the best! You MUST stop in and enjoy this neighborhood gem and whatever you do, ask for the server named OZ!! You won't regret it!
