Just stopped in for their happy hour for a few drinks with friends. Everyone was very nice and once we had a sampling of their free buffet we decided we might as well stay for dinner. And I'm glad we did! We will defiantly be coming back.

Great local Irish pub, complete with real locals and real Irish folks. We come here on Sunday nights for the casual vibe, frosty Smithwicks, and kick-ass steak sandwiches. Comfy cozy pubby goodness.

"There I was, stranded near in Philadelphia without a car, hungry, accompanied by a hungry, impatient girlfriend, surrounded by Asian cuisine, which we weren't quite feeling.

And what's that? An Irish pub? That serves real Irish food? SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY."
