I was SOOOOOOOOOO not disappointed. The old McCarthy's was such a Tequesta institution that I presumed this would "miss" somehow. How wrong I was. I had an appetizer for dinner (corned beef sliders that included a delicious green salad ... $11) that was one of...More

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...More

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!

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...More

We didn't go for happy hour so I don't know. I guess you would have to call. I don't remember seeing anything listed on the menu.
What are the hours?
