From the minute you open the door, Irish hospitality abounds in an environment one would expect across the pond! Beautiful hand painted wall art and repurposed ceiling beams embrace over-stuffed comfy seating, tables dressed with starched linens, and of course a beautifully crafted bar with warm, welcoming staff that has you feeling like family within 10 minutes and never forgets...

Everyone is Irish on this Irish Holiday! My husband and I decided to stop in for a glass of green beer and dinner. The bar and restaurant was crowded with over an hour wait for dinner. No one complained about the wait-- we all were having a great time. Irish music, friendly people. Old friends and new friends. One big... More

The "Jumpingest" day of the Irish Calendar year: St. Patty's Day leaves a lot to be desired here. Yawn, Yawn, Oh, Drink some beer with the Cherry-Faced White Hair crowd. Twenty-Five Dollar Corned beef and Cabbage, What? Owner/MC dolling out raffle ticket winners, Yak-Yak-Yak. Where's the live Irish music. Not much energy in this crowd.

Wow, we were so happy we stopped. 2 ordered the spinach salad. Large and beautifully served. I had the power salad. Sooo delicious. Our waitress was very patient with us,as we hadn't seen each other for years. It was a fun experience that we all appreciated.

Consistently good food and service. Food is cooked well with a diverse menu, but it is pub food wich means some stuff can be a little bland. Great bar area and beverage selection!

Monday nights provide a jammed-packed, fun-filled, non-stop Irish and pop music courtesy of the very talented entertainer Noel (a true Irishman). No need to bring kelts, but be prepared for a quality musical and entertaining show! Lads and Laddies, this obscure and well-hidden gem of a restaurant captures the essence of a Dubliner pub relocated to Jupiter/Tequesta area. Food is... More

Stopped by after a tour on the water. Dining room was closed so we ate in the bar. Nicely decorated. Had fish and chips which were very good and plenty.

We went here on a Wednesday night in January with another couple. The restaurant was busy, but we got seated immediately. The server was pleasant but a little scatterbrained. 2 in our party ordered the lamb stew, and found it to be average. One in our party cant eat onions, and he made this clear to the server. He ordered... More

Our first mid-week visit to the local Irish Pub was delightful and the pub was busy. Menu choices were varied and we were undecided but Brenda recommended the Chicken Pot Pie w/Pastry Top and Liver & onions w/bacon. Cooked to perfection and perfectly presented. The creamed cauliflower was delicious. Irish Coffee w/real Irish Cream was a pleasant end to the... More
