(Was bought by another Irish pub and name will be changing soon) I really liked this place. I went on rainy day but outside looks like they will have a deck set up. Inside is awesome. The 4 or 5 rooms are all decorated very nice. They have TVís and the March Madness games and F1 racing were on. Many good choices on tap from the standards to craft both permanent and rotating taps and bottles. Food was good and the service was great, all servers had a smile. Live Irish music was in one of the other rooms and my daughter and I went over and the bad let her go up for a nice pic with them. Even though this is not close to me I will return. The only down tick I gave them was on price but since I live on the Shore I am really used to higher prices at bars.

Iíve now visited this fantastic bar twice and have great things to say about it. Iíll start with the decor/etc first. The bar is an old mansion transformed into a multi-roomed bar with bands on Friday and Saturday, and multiple TVs in every room you go with sports on. The crowd is not your typical sports bar crowd though, everyone seems courteous and I havenít seen any loud drunks there yet. Each room is decorated very nicely with a nice homey feel. I love being in here. Outside thereís a big deck with a huge gas firepit.
Iím a bit biased towards service as my friend waited on me, but I did meet some of the other staff whom were all very friendly. Lotís of cute waitresses and very fast service.
The selection of beer is pretty decent, on the two occasions I went, 2 weeks apart, the beer list had changed and it seems they keep bringing in new stuff regularly. I had: Goose Island Pere Jacques, Left Hand Milk Stout, Port Brewing Midnight Expression, Goose Island IPA, Liefmans Oud Bruin, Sixpoint Mad Scientist Berliner Weisse, Left Hand Ambidextrous, Lost Abbey Avante Garde, and Founders Curmudgeons Old Ale. They only have one BMC on tap and itís Coors Light, Yuengling is also on tap among Magners cider and others. The selection is pretty great and rotates often. They also have some scotch and Irish Whiskeys as well as some wine if you want that.
The food is good, I had a blackened bleu cheeseburger and it was good, cooked how I asked and came with fries. I would definitely order it again.
The pricing is very fair here, most beer on tap falls within the $6-$7 range with some lower and higher, the burger meal was $10.
I will be visiting bi-weekly to check out the new stuff on tap and relax after work. I highly recommend visiting this place!
