Large room with a 20 or so tables, a long bar that meanders a little an easily seats 15. They also have a couple of party rooms, one with its own bar and others that are more private. Live music often, mostly cover bands, but I like to support live acts and so do they. Weekends get hot in here.
Lots of good draft options including many locals (Miskatonic, Argus, Solemn Oath, Half Acre, and Penrose) along with the obvious (Guinness, Boddington's, and Harp), with more common bigs. I was excited to see Boddington's and Carlsburg, though. With 50 or so bottle and can options, what you want is here.
The food is pretty good for American/Irish.
Service was lacking even on a Thursday evening, I only saw one bartender. I don't know maybe support comes at 10. I'm sure they know what they are doing.
