Love the scene of the place. However food was very bland. (We ordered crab cake sandwich and fish & chips) We were going to wait for the band to play but then were told our table was being used for the next reservation so they would give us "a couple of mins". We decided to leave and drink somewhere else.

Just ok. Sea Bass special overpriced. Potatoes were cold. Fish was noted to be crusted with pistachios. It wasn't.

Usually enjoy it but not up to par.

Service was ok.

Great ambiance, tables set at safe distance in the enclosed patio. Ahi Tuna was well plated for an Irish pub! Was hoping whiskey cocktails would be prepped better, but all in all- a great gem in the middle of nowhere- I’ll be back!!!

We had a great meal, a wonderful server and a very cozy table. The English toffee dessert was to die for, worth every calorie!

Food is always good quality. Pub food on the menu is very tasty and is true the English Pub style. Bangers & Mash is excellent, and Fish & Chips is true English style.
Thomas, our server, is always courteous and personable.

Fire roasted tomato bisque excellent! Hubby had ahi tuna melt. I tasted. Excellent. I had the tenderloin tips. Good but I found the Guinness gravy to be overpowering Next time I’d get the ahi tuna!
