    On a warm day wind your way up stairs to upstairs bar with outside patio. Just a few seats, great vantage onto King Street and the hustle and bustle of Old Town.

    Outstanding food, drinks, and service. Highly recommend Irish Egg Rolls, the Bangers & Mash, Shepherd’s Pie, Fish & Chips, & more!

    The Irish egg roles is a cool spin on corned beef and cabbage. The wonton wrap and the dubliner cheddar cheese taste awesome with the corned beef and cabbage.

    Great service, fun atmosphere, hit or miss food with certain items. Appears that burgers turn out consistently well, but not so much for other entrees such as the chicken casserole and fish & chips.

    Lots of seating, including a little outdoor patio upstairs that's nice for brunch. Since it's an Irish pub, it's good to go with the full Irish breakfast

    Great service - attentive, fast and with a smile. Nice rooftop patio. Tasty burger and ok pancakes - what we needed to power us back to DC via bike.

    Scotch eggs, bangers and mash and Irish egg rolls are a must. They're excellent.

    Love this pub but stick to the Irish food (which is good).There's a reason Dublin isn't famous for nachos.

    How can an Irish Pub run out of corned beef??? Food was good-not great but good! Waiter was personable and nice.

    Live traditional music on Monday evenings next to the main fireplace! (Good tunes - not the hokey stuff.)

    A good portion of the bar's adornments comes directly from Ireland! Owners had parts of buildings shipped to VA.

    Fun atmosphere and good service. Seems like standard pub fare rolls out consistently well, such as burgers. The other food was hit or miss, but I'd still return.

    I learned that "snake bites" are an American creation, but, they make great ones! Make sure to order it "dark."

    Shepherd’s pie was very good .. Reuben was also good ... Onion rings not so good - sort of burned. Music was decent but way too loud! Couldn’t hear the people sitting next to me ...

    I paid $25 for a 12oz ribeye that I ordered medium, but it came welldone in the middle and med rare on the edges. Overall not bad but expected better for the price and the (somewhat) limited menu.
