Typical American style take on an Irish Pub. Black, painted wood interiors and Irish and British macros are plentiful, while nary a cask or good European brew is to be found. Over a dozen taps and there were three so-so local micros available and plenty of bottles of crap as well. Didnít eat here, but menu looked like the same Americanized stereotype of "Irish" food and would probably be serviceable. Service was able to keep up pretty well during happy hour when all the suits entered, but prices were a little high for the quality of the fare.

This place probably doesnít belong in the database as it is more geared at the local tourists than the beer nerd. With Maxís only a half mile away in Fellís Point (along with a ton of local brewpubs and other watering holes) thereís no reason to linger here.
The selection does include as least one local but for the most part you most exotic choice here is a Guinness. The food prices are not bad though in line with a pub centrally located around a cluster of business oriented hotels. For a richer and more authentic Baltimore experience head further down the bay.

They did have one craft beer, a Heavy Seas, so I guess this place qualifies for the database. Other than that, itís U.K and Irish macro stuff. Service was friendly and quick, crowd was in a good mood, so it was a fun stop.

This is a sister pub of Irelandís Four Courts in Arlington, VA and set up about the same. The taps are Guinness, Smithwicks, a cider, James Joyce Amber (a Heavy Seas beer), and Stella Artois; so, there is nothing out of the ordinary here. I did not eat any food, so I cannot comment on that.

Sat at the bar. Typical Irish pub with English and Irish ales on tap. All of the bartenders were really cool with suggestions and professionalism. Neat atmosphere, a little pricey but on par with the area. Drink specials and happy hour food specials.

Location is in a very touristy part of town. Prices are about what you would expect for the area. Atmosphere is decent, and there were enough beers on tap to find a few I liked. Fells Point is only a few blocks away and there are many great bars there, so I usually head over there.

Foods not bad, service is harried, beer selection is lacking to say the least. Good place to meet (because of location) and then move on to someplace better.

Crappy mock mick bar that gets filled with out of towners staying in the new, nearby hotels. Take the extra few steps and get yourself over to Fells Point and stop being lazy...

Donít go here. Beer selection is not what you expect when you find a place listed on RateBeer: Bass, Harp, Boddingtonís, Miller Lite,
Stella, Smithwicks, Guinness, Sam Adams, Clipper City Red Sky (which is called the James Joyce Ale) and Yuengling. Keep walking past this place and make it down to Maxís on Broadway. Other than the beer list, this pub had the same feel as any other British/Irish themed pub: dark stained wood, low light, the appearance of many small, sectioned rooms, and a long bar.
