    Awesome experience. Food was fantastic. Service was amazing and the atmosphere was great. The 4 of us each got a different entree so we could sample everything and they were all excellent.

    Amazing pub atmosphere- very unassuming for “Conor’s” place. Ask to get a pic with the belt. Food was amazing and unique service for steaks. Highly, highly recommend!
