Updating my review to a 1. Fish and chips are all breading after digging through 2 layers of breading found the fish. The pickles and pimento apparently ran out of pickles just the burgers had pickles on them. Please please step it up. Makes me sad for an Irish bar still. Sadly I’m already disappointed. Apparently they have a “winter” menu and “summer” menus. The summer has NOTHING to do with Irish food. And I’m skeptical that winter will have nothing to do with Irish food either. If you want Irish, don’t come here.

Great spot with outdoor green space. The patio is good for both summer and winter weather conditions. Heating on the patio in the winter. Variety of beer and cocktail drinks. The food is great with spices depending on your choice.

We walked in on a Saturday night, did not see any staff up front. Were seated by a young man with no personality. We were sat on the outside patio with lots of loud college kids who (if you can believe it) insisted on farting loudly and commenting on how badly it smelled... and it did. A couple drinks in, and we were able to relax a little more. The server who brought out first round confused us by calling our beer something different than what it was. Our actual waiter was actually fantastic. The tots were... interesting. We didn't think it would have large pieces of bacon and large pieces of turkey, making it difficult to share. We ordered tacos off the late night menu which our waiter thankfully recommended to order with the sauce on the side. The sauce was made in house and EXTREMELY spicy, but we liked it. We probably wouldn't come back here though unfortunately even though our waiter was nice and the food was okay.

Great place to catch a game and enjoy decent bar food. It has a real pub atmosphere inside but also has a wonderful open lawn and patio seating area in the back. More enjoyable in the summers in my opinion but worth a visit if you're nearby.

A fun pub in a great location. It's hard to beat the convenience of this place with their big lawn and two bars for counter service. Great spot to meet up with friends, have a pint or two. Their seasoned fries and chicken tenders are great -- the menu is all bar food so don't expect fancy. Extremely casual atmosphere and service.

Great tap beer selection. Tasty menu. Indoor and outdoor seating. Lots of TVs showing lots of sports. Old world atmosphere.

Have been there several times, usually will stop in while waiting for my train to Greensboro. Great atmosphere, attentive wait staff,good drinks. But...second time I've ordered the wings. Why are they fried so HARD? They were so hard the meat was DRY! Couldn't appreciate the seasoning.
