A buddy and I did a quick stop here to take on a pint of Guinness. It's tucked away in a little corner of West Richmond and frankly it was exactly what I expected from what I saw on the outside. It's an Irish pub through and through, right down to the vibe. It's completely devoid of pretentiousness from staff down to customer and totally comfortable with itself. Patio action was close by but we glued ourselves to one of their flatscreens.
Along with our pint we opted for a share platter consisting of usual pub digs including dry ribs and hot wings. Regular pub fare that was right up our alley. The menu is extensive so chowhounds needn't worry about selection.
The waitresses there are on top of things but don't expect coddled service. These women can handle their own and in a pub like this it's what we're looking for.
Great find; shame that I'd have a long trek lumbering on home if I inhaled a pint too many. Will be back.
My boyfriend and I have lunch here after church every other Sunday. The decor is classic Irish pub, with a nice homey feel about it. I don't think I've had anything on their menu that I would not recommend, although my boyfriend wasn't a big fan of the lamb breakfast dish when he tried that. My usual is the weekend brunch special for $4.95. The only times I've been here are on Sunday afternoons and once on a weekday, so I can't say what it's like when it's busy, but I've always found the servers to be friendly and efficient. Once, we had to rush off to see a movie, so I was actually keeping track of the time, and we managed to order and eat within fifteen minutes!
