Took the family here about a month ago down on the Main Street of Belleville.

Overall this is a good place. The parking wasn't too bad, especially since they rely on public parking in the street, vice having their own parking lot. On the inside it looks pretty much like a typical Irish pub, except the tables and chairs were a bit cheap, and the carpeting was a bit cheesy (get hardwood or something). Altogether, it felt about like being in any pub in Ireland.

Our waitress was pretty good about making sure my beer never was empty, and our food was out in a relatively decent amount of time. This isn't a franchise, so I'm willing to wait an extra 10 minutes for my food. My dish was more than excellent, which was the cod, but my wife got a steak and mushroom pie and the gelatin was easily visible and not mixed very well with the gravy, thus a markdown.

They had typical Irish brews on tap, along with three or four American craft brews. They also had a decent bottle selection for both imports and craft brews.

The menu is littered with traditional Irish pub affair. I look forward to go back and try out some more dishes. I just hope I don't get the same experience my wife got concerning her pie. The food is a bit pricey, and the beer is not too badly priced so it kind of levels out.
