Comfortable, classic pub in the heart of Bel Air. Long bar on one side as you enter with tables opposite and in the back as well as an upstairs dining room. Good selection of taps but nothing noteworthy on the day we visited. Service was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Lots of Irish dishes on the menu in addition to standard fare and daily specials. Really good choice if in the area. Roots go back to a now closed pub with the same name in Baltimore that was in the forefront of the craft beer movement.

On street parking. Atmosphere is nice Irish pub. Pretty good selection of drafts. I had the happy hour sampler, which is a great deal. Good selection of taps. Steak was good, didnít care for the crab cake, and bread pudding was pretty good. Food was overall good.

For Harford County, this is probably the best you can get. They have a rotating draft list, which never really includes anything mind blowing but still gives you a nice break from the usual suspects. To put it in perspective, Brewerís Art Resurrection is still typically one of the best beers they have on draft on any given night. There are some decent beers on the bottles list but I hate paying a mark-up for a non-draft beer. Food menu here elevates this place; they have some decent quality Irish food. Value is a little disappointing, as the check usually ends up being higher than I expected. Portions are of a decent size. I donít recall ever having any issues with service here.

Fun bar with a solid beer selection. Nothing mind bending, special, or one-off will be found here, but there are always about a dozen beers worth giving a go including Brewers Art, Ommegang, Troegs, Stone, Chimay, Uniboue as well as a selection of the UK stuff. Staff is excellent, attentive, and friendly. Atmosphere is very much a regular crowd, neighborhood bar kind of feel. The food Iíve had has all been solid and reasonably priced, Especially the shepherdís pie for ten bucks which was plenty of food for two meals.

Went on a Thursday or Friday night. The pub area downstairs was pretty packed. Nice Irish pub ambiance. Service was okay- quick, but the bartender was sort of pushy. Selection was nice- especially the bottles. Had maybe ten beers on tap. My friends and I went upstairs and it was empty, so we dragged chairs out to the balcony and drank our fill. Not a bad place to get a quiet drink (or a couple).

I live in the area, and it is a rare week when I dont make at least two trips there for dinner. Downstairs is the pub atmosphere, and it varies from very loud and rollicking to quiet/subdued. Upstairs is more sedate, and upscale in appearance...same menu, just quieter...less beer selections as well. The downstairs beer selection is good, with several rotating taps and a case with a lot of fine bottles. The food is very good (especially of late, as they have changed chef/cook). Try a monday for crab cake night, or thursday for wings and you will be very happy with your choice. Thursday is also open mike night, which draws a lot of talented musicians, and is a good night for eating late, drinking lightly, and enjoying music.

Have been there for lunch twice, so I cannot comment on the dinner/evening crowd. Food and service were great. Beer selections were fine too, but when I was there the second time the on-tap selection was limited for mechanical reasons. A nice place.
