The service was excellent when I had a whiskey question. The server brought out the expert. We had a quick talk. Then he brought out 2 bottles to have a look for color. And I chose... Was fantastic! Food was delicious and they catered to our keto needs.

Wilm definitely be back!

Food was disappointing. My husband had the half rack of ribs and needed force with knife and fork to eat them. Left 3/4 behind. My fish was standard but ordered 2 piece and only came with one tartar sauce. Also where we sat the table beside us had a couple with a young kid that swore like truckers. Plus I went to the ladies room and a man walked in with a young girl and decided to take a leak in the stall beside me. I was so uncomfortable that I stayed in the stall until they left. So on that note we will not be returning.

We ordered from the "Restaurant Week" menu. Although food was good, it would have been nice of they had actual IRISH food on special

There were only two servers (that we could find/see) on a holiday Monday? Not great. Took forever for food/service but it was not the servers fault, she was trying!

Plus being a vegetarian, there were only two veggie mains and they were sold out of one of them....grrrr

The dessert menu was bizarre...five or six different kinds of cheese cake (I hate cheesecake) and a banana pie thing? Variety might be nice!

Plus side? The meat eating people liked their lamb burgers but their fries were cold, so was the tea...so depressing dinner out all around...

Food and service was excellent. Could have used a little more space because there were so many people at the table beside us,they had to be moved to an extended table right behind us...cramping us into the corner a wee bit. But all in all it was a very good dinner.

I ordered the baked haddock with lemon and herbs. This is why I rated the food very low. I did not like it at all very strong flavour it stayed with you I could not eat it. But the server refunded my money back which was fantastic. The rest of my family loved their meal.

I got the blueberry bbq pulled pork sandwich and it was awesome except I didn’t fully taste the bbq sauce until I asked for a side of it. It’s fantastic but you really can’t taste it at all on the sandwich. Cannot state enough how good that sauce is though, I would buy a bottle if I could.
Fries are gross to be honest, like McCain fries but worse.
Server was really nice and struck a nice balance of checking in but also leaving us alone to enjoy our date.
