It is a Bars Bar. Solid joint. Good beer. Always get excellent service. Great beach beer joint.

It is what it is. A hangout. A joint. A hole in the wall. Where you want to go after work, after play.

Get the Scotch Egg and a Guiness... ohhh yeah not living till you've had and egg wrapped up in a piggies best parts.

Went here with a couple work buddies for a few pints after earning a day's wages. We went at night so the fact that this place is an Irish Pub means nothing except for the decor, it's pretty much just a popular hangout at night on the weekends. The beer selection is decent, nothing to knock your socks off but there are plenty of well represented styles and lots of locals. Can't really comment on the food or staff because we just got drinks and hung out. If you're in the area and want some atmosphere I'd recommend this place for sure.

I like Irish places, but my wife hates them so it's rare for me to get to try one, especially when we're on vacation. We'd actually been successful with the Irish stuff a couple times before so my wife was ok with trying this place.

Unfortunately, it pales in comparison to the other places and my wife noted quickly that this was our first and last time to visit here.

The atmosphere is somewhat like I'd expect from an Irish pub, but like I mentioned, doesn't compare to the other places we've been. There wasn't much good about the place other than the price. The selection of beer wasn't that impressive, the food was mediocre at best and the service non-existent until it was time for the check.

The price was good, but everything else sucked.

WE visited on a slow lunch day, one of the few places open on the beach during the day anymore, which is sad. Going early you miss the music and the kids and hipsters etc. Still it can be smokey in there at times.

The food was a good as ever, i waited until we had been to this place a few times to review it, as you can visit on a bad day.
WE had the fish and chips, but most of the other limited food selection we have had in the past and it too was good.

They have a full bar, and mainly its why I go, is the food and the full bar. Its a beach bar and sadly the beer reflects it, if you want fresh beer buy bmc in the bottles. Now the prices are darn good for the beer, but most of the 30 or so taps seem to be either out half the time or are flat or have dirty lines or all three!

Selection is ok but nothing great, I mean there is some craft on tap, but most is sub par stuff. There are better choices on the beach for beer if you ask me. Seemed what they do have is leaning to the IPA end of things. Go for the music at night and food during the day, but be ready to have sub par beer.

Service was excellent as usual. Atmosphere, well they are remodeling again....lol you better sit away from the smokers if you like to breath clean air.

Quality: The food is great for bar Irish food

Service: solid, everyone is helpful and good hospitality.

Selection: Not a bad selection most of the Irish beers there.

Food: fish and chips is what they specliaze in.

I have been going to this bar for years. They usually have great bands there and this is one of the most popular hangouts in Jacksonville. There not many good places to go in Jacksonville but this is one of the main places to go. There's also a lot fo other bars in the area and is in the heart of the only bar district in jacksonville. again not saying much...

This is a pretty solid, classic Irish Pub. Plenty of atmosphere (dollars stapled to the ceiling and an Irish themed mural on the walls) and you can expect a good crowd any day of the week. They often have live music and they have bar trivia ($75 first prize) twice a week. The food is pretty good too, the fish and chips and the reuben in particular.

The beer unfortunately is the weak point of this bar. I am not really sure it deserves to be listed in the beer bar section of this site. There are quite a few taps but they are poorly used. Aside from the obligatory domestic macros, they waste the rest of their taps of some pretty lackluster imports. Prime examples would be Stella and Carlsberg. Beers like that don't do much for me and I have never really liked Guinness draught, so when I come here for trivia I usually stick with the $2 pint of the night (I should point out that the special is never anything quite as crappy as bud light, it is usually Amstel or Yeungling and once it was Blue Moon Honey Moon).

Stopped in around 10pm on a Tuesday night. Atmosphere struck me as more beach bar than Irish bar, although there was a good bit of decoration from Ireland. Smoking was allowed and in full effect, and if they served food, I saw no sign of it. Things got better as I hit the bar, and I don't know if I believe the 50 beers on tap claim, but they had at least 30+. Mainly focused on Ireland and Europe, of course. I enjoyed a Boddingtons and a Guiness, and the quality seemed just fine. Service was quick, but the place wasn't terribly crowded. Value was reasonable for a bar at the beach, with pints going for around $4 each. Not a bad place to hang out.
