I have been here several times now and have been thoroughly impressed each time.
My first visit I met a few friends there who were there to watch a Canuck's game. The place was PACKED and the vibe was fantastic (maybe because the Canuck's were wining!). They had "Canuck's Shots" for $2.99 during the game and it was "Wing Night" so my friends and I loaded up on both. The food had already been ordered when I got there but because we were seated right next to where they keep the menus I had a peek at what else they had to offer. Our waitress noticed me looking over the menu and asked if I wanted to order anything else (I DID want to since their menu is pretty extensive although not entirely "Irish") but because I had already eaten I let her know I was just reviewing it for possible future visits.
She was super-sweet and proceeded to tell me about their dinner special the next night which was Sirloin Steak and Prawns for $11.99! And that they did a brunch menu on the weekends. My parents were coming into the city the next day so I asked if I could make reservations for the 3 of us for dinner but oddly enough they don't take reservations for groups less than 8 people! Kind of understandable since they do have limited space.
I did go back the next night with my parents (we ended up with the same waitress!). She recognized me and seemed genuinly happy to see me return (so refreshing to be treated so kindly by another female! (who by the way was VERY pretty as were all the other girls working there!)). The place was packed (again) even though there was no hockey game. The steak and prawns were perfectly cooked and came with ceaser salad and garlic bread. My parents loved the place and were also impressed by how attentive our waitress was. I assured them we would come back for the weekend brunch before they went back home the following week.
We did return for brunch the following Sunday and although we did have to wait 10 minutes for a table and the previous waitress was nowhere to be seen the service was still amazing and the food was great yet again especially for the rediculously inexpensive price.
I took a friend from work there last Tuesday for lunch and had the Greek Burger at the suggestion of our waitress, my friend had the California Burger with sweet potato fries (had to mention that since they were the best sweet potato fries I've ever sampled! My ceaser salad was great too but next time I'll go with the sweet potato fries!!). The place was bustling again but the waitress (all 3 of them!) greeted us and made us feel at home, the service was quick, the food came out very quickly and tasted delicious!!
I'll definately go back a.s.a.p.!!

I liked the food here but can't say I was impressed. Was recomended by a friend of mine (he RAVED about it) so maybe my expectations were too high. The food was good, the service was okay but I doubt I'll go back anytime soon as it was just your typical greek food which was compareable to other similar establishments....
