    Looking for a fun, loud and ridiculous time? Look no further. A combination of locals and tourists make this a great time. Karaoke Fri & Sat downstairs.

    Don't go there when looking for a romantic date! It looks like a typical American bar, but we had amazing bar food there! Mac&Cheese w/ truffle or the Philly Cheese Steak! Friendly, helpful and fast!

    I really liked this place. The staff acted like I was there neighbor! When I ordered the burger a woman named Una said try the loaded nachos...sooo good, esp. with a beer! The burger was great.

    This place plays great music on Fridays. I have so far heard Jimmy Eat World, Modest Mouse, Coldplay, Kings of Leon, Paramore and Smashing Pumpkins. Haven't played song yet I haven't liked.

    This is not an Irish bar. But it does serve a range of expensive domestic and Irish beers and show sports.

    What is this bar? Thought it was your average Irish pub but certainly is not - basement is the where the action is at, lots of very dressed up folks getting down on the dance floor...karaoke too.

    Better be friends with the bartender unless you enjoy watered down drinks. Stick to beer. Tourists upon tourists.

    The food is good, but the music is too freaking loud and gets on my nerves. Avoid if your not into loud music from a live band.

    Tried to get in for a 2nd time, Bouncer says "no sweatpants" < I was wearing jeans>. He says no hats < I said ill take it off> . He then lets In a guy with a hat. I feel like I experienced racism.
