Food was excellent and service was great. It was a Sunday night so it wasn't that busy. Our waitress was very friendly and energetic. I would definitely go back to try other dishes and recommend to others.

Very loud. Food was average and service was slow. I came in solo to wait for my date and I wasn’t even asked if I wanted water for over 20 minutes!

Also when a game is on, would be nice to have the audio on too. The live band is way too loud and can’t even hear the person across from you!

The hostess was miserable. Not welcoming at all. Right away i knew that this place was a mistake

The waitress picked up my husband glass by the rim and placed it in front on him. Not cool considering his lips touch the rim.

We celebrated my twins 16h bday. A little disappointed that we had to pay for dessert for both of them.

Lastly, my meal also included a salad with the dressing on the side. My husband also order dressing for his salmon on the side, which was missing. So this kid say oh here and proceeds to take mine off my salad with his fingers and gives it to my husband. The waitress intervenes and places it back near my salad and gets the right dressing for my husband.

So, my concern is ...if this much touching of food is happening outside the kitchen I can just imagine what in happing in the kitchen

Very disappointed! This USED to be out “go to place”. Now looking for a new place

Very slow service, inattentive waitress . Our waitress kept going to the table beside us and walking the opposite direction almost to avoid us. We had to look for a waitress to refill our beverages . We waited so long that we just stayed with ice water.. that we drank very slowly. Unfortunately, you lost some alcoholic purchases. It’s a pretty awesome environment however, this isn’t the first time the service has been low and slow. We waited for a desert menu and/ or coffee .. waited and waited yeah you lost on that purchase as well . Again we just thought let’s grab the bill so and waited for her to return to our table to ask for the bill... when we finally caught her eye as she was at a different table we motioned the bill please ... instead of coming and asking , it was assumed that we wanted everything on one bill .... the waitress dropped the bill and literally took off . when she finally returned 10 min later with the debit machine.. we asked for separate bills let’s just say she wasn’t to impressed ! Point is communication. Ask at the beginning of the interaction “ will this evening separate or one bill” . like I said the evening was busy but, at our time it wasn’t jam packed .. really no excuse for that service . The “pepper girl “ smiled and actually looked happy to be there .. our waitress not so much .
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion this was just ours.

The only problem we had was that the waitress mixed up our orders on the bill. And apparently after we left the people we were sitting with had some of our dishes on their bill and would not accept the CAA card for a 10% discount.
Loved the band..."Where it's Zat"!!!

Good food, great friendly service, a really nice pub/restaurant EXCEPT:
this is still a mostly English speaking area - why are all the tvs on a French channel?
It's an Irish pub - why do you play that stupid rock music? I hate it, as do many folks. In an Irish pub I expect to hear Irish music.
Therefore my family and I will not be returning.

The food was okay. The band played a few songs then took a “short” break which ended up being 45 minutes long. This wouldn’t have been so bad if our waitress hadn’t disappeared for the same amount of time.

Music was way too loud. Lighting was too dark. Food was ok. Service was not friendly at all. When asked waiter for the status of the orders (only asking, not complaining) after waiting for approx half an hour, he replied: "it's coming, we have to cook it right?!" With sarcastic comments like that, don't think we would ever go back.

We made a reservation with the OpenTable app and we were seated immediately upon arrival on a busy Saturday evening . Our server Maria was amazing. She was very pretty and friendly and the service that she provided was impeccable. The food was great as we enjoyed the fish and chips and shepherds pie .this was our second time eating here and we would definitely return
