Not a bad little Irish pub. I haven't had the food, but the drinks are usually pretty good and the selection is not bad at all. I have always had pretty good service and never had any problems in that regard. The drinks are a little expensive, but there are usually some pretty good drink specials that make up for this. Honestly, the main reason I come here is to drink before I go see a movie, because it is directly attached to the mall and the movie theater. All in all it is not a bad place to have a couple of beers with some buddies.

edit: it seems the beer selection's changed within the past few months. Given that as an important factor, my score and notes have been changed to reflect that.

The atmosphere of this place is really nice, though pretty chain. I think it really captures the authentic feel of an Irish pub while serving as a dining establishment and mixes the two well. It's in a mall, but I think they did as well as anyone could with the atmosphere given such. It's very large with a lot of seating of different kinds: booth, tables, a large bar area with three sides of seating, and even some rounded, more enclosed booths. There are a couple TVs by the bar always closed-captioned and one further back in the dining area that's not. Beyond that is a more enclosed dining area for quiet and privacy. The food is much more restaurant-style and variety than bar food and what I had was quite good. The beer selection is nice as well. There are 13-16 taps, though a couple were out of commission, as well as a couple taps for things like Strongbow hard cider. BMC was on tap along with Smithwick's, Guinness, Newcastle, etc. Any craft was in bottles only, and there are about 20 bottles (including some macro, though). The kicker was that you could order the draft sampler, where they bring you a tray of 2 oz. samples of 11 of their draft brews labeled on a tray for $7.50. The service was good, and our waiter was quick on refills and to make sure we were doing well. All in all this is a good establishment and one I will enjoy from time to time, though not really for beer.
