Foursquare Tips

  • Euro-pop is bad enough. Blasting it at happy hour is inexcusable.
  • Try the spicy buffalo chicken wrap...delicious.
  • Stellar pulled pork sandwhich. I recommend it highly.
  • get a half price burger on Mondays
  • Bland food. Dingy indoors and a crappy outdoor patio.
  • Relaxed atmosphere. Happy hour starts at noon.
  • Coldest day of the year and this place can't be bothered to serve any soup or stew. Irish food fail.
  • The rum is diluted, ungodly so
  • I don't think nachos are supposed to be soggy.
  • Da weekend!
  • Sit at the back bar in the evenings so you get Carlos as bartender. He remembers everything and everybody!
  • ask for carlos the midget at the back bar
  • you're gonna love the scoop de noop- ask Melissa
  • Try the happy hr chips and salsa. They're huge and only $2.50!
  • Great place for hh if you actually want to be able to hear your friends.
  • Try to gather some gypsy tears by the river
  • The salad I had was 1/3 rotten lettuce & the clam chowder was watered down
  • Get the ruben skins during half off appetizers
  • Happy Hour from 4-8...always nice to get the extra hour.
  • On a cold winter day, request the table for two in front of the fireplace (unless I'm already sitting there, in which case you'll have to arm wrestle me for it).
