Tried posting this as a comment to the discrimination review, but it was a little wordy. So, here it is as a separate review for all to enjoy.

First off, I know quite a few lesbian friends and none of them go into the same stall together.

Pros: As close to Ireland in Austin as you can get...

Cons: When its crowded, a little more AC might be nice

I've been a regular at this Pub for 3 years now-- the reason I return time and time again is largely in part b/c of the phenomenal staff there. They are super fun, friendly, and definitely remember their patrons & said patrons' drinks of

Pros: Great service, delicious drinks, fun events

Cons: Hard to leave

Great spot until Grant overcharged us on domestic drinks. $3.50 for a 12 ounce Lonestar is the most I've ever paid. Sunday night with no entertainment, this is the worst Austin bar experience I've had in a VERY long time. Congrats,

Pros: friendly staff, proper pints, great wings

Cons: the hair gel havens across the street

I've been going here on Tuesday's for trivia and it's a LOT of fun! The drinks are good, selection is nice. I have HEARD that their normal menu is great, but on Tuesdays they have a limited menu, which I've found to be mediocre.

The outdoor patio is VERY nice to sit on, as long as it's not raining or too hot. Tuesdays can be PACKED, so if you want to sit inside, you'll have to get there VERY VERY early.

Pros: Relaxed atmosphere, Great Food, Great Service

Cons: Service on the deck is touch and go, sit at the bar, it's a Pub for goodness sakes!

My experience at this pub was TERRIBLE. Due mostly in part to the service. I didn't really catch my server's name because he seemed too busy running around franticly and yelling at the other waitresses, but he had short red hair styled

I've been to Egan's several times and just love the place. If you are looking for a home away from home that just happens to have great beer on tap and even better conversation from the staff...this is the place for you. They have this

One of the best places in Austin to have a few pints. The atmosphere is great, the waitstaff even better. I've never had anything less then a fabulous time there. The place is relaxed, and whether you are with a group or on your own,

Horrible customer service, overpriced drinks and NO happy hour; you can walk down the street and get a domestic beer for 2.00 during Happy Hour, but at this fake irish pub they cahrge you 5.50 for a Miller, dang.

Pros: The people incl. the customers, bartenders, and ownership

Cons: You'd better be friendly to go there!

Great Irish Pub run by a couple aboriginal IRISH transplants. The Pub Grub is some of the best in town. Trivia Night on Tuesdays is quickly becoming a local tradition. Drop by with your goup of "know it all's" and find out you don't. Good

An irish pub? Only because some irish guys own it. The food is not good at all the pints are very average at best and the feel is not friendly at all. If you want a drink make sure you order 2 at a time becuse the service is terrible.

The quiz every Tuesday is great, the food is good, the beer is good...what else can you ask for? Real Irish people own this pub and the Irish feeling inside is genuine (not overdone like another "Irish" pub to remain nameless.)

In Short
County Meath natives John O'Brien and Mick Morris recreated an authentic Irish neighborhood experience. It's named after Morris' grandmother, who took care of her village's children in the early 1900s. Away from the bar…
