I walked in pretty much expecting your typical garbage Irish pub that’s listed on the site with five beers that nobody drinks.
Aesthetically, it pretty much is that crappy Irish pub, but they have like 60 taps and a lot of pretty solid beers. Yeah, they’ve got the garbage stuff like Guinness, Bud Light, Stella, Smithwicks, whatever. But they’ve got a bunch of stuff from all over. Pannepot, Black Xantus, Ballast Point Fathom, Drakes Jolly Rodger @ the Irish pub, sure? Despite having a massive list, I’ll admit that it’s a bit like the Yard House in terms of having a ton of beers, but not necessarily a ton of interesting beers. A lot of whiskey, too.
On a weekend night, I was there a little early, but it had the feel of a place that can get a bit rowdy rather than just being your relax and drink a beer sort of place.
Based on the rating from Bobby, I’m not sure if this place underwent a massive change in 18 months or if one of us walked into the wrong bar.

This was an in and out kind of stop. Much like the other Irish bars that are listed here on Ratebeer there are a dozen taps of the same old “imported” crap. There is a positive side though and that is that it is a popular spot to watch the games and you can sit outside in the sun. I see no need to come here for a beer unless I wanted to Advocate some Guinness and watch a game.
