I have been here twice in 2 years. Had to give it a second chance. While the atmosphere is cozy, the food is nothing to talk about or eat! The worst sheppards pie I've ever had. It had chili base with chunks of potatoes on top. Awful! You need a new chef!
Apparently the food is only good on weekends. We went last Monday and I had to send my steak back because it was nothing but fat. My husband's shrimp and grits were gritty. There was trash and flies in the windowsill while the waitstaff stood around and talked. Not to mention the table was sticky. Very dissatisfied.
Would be nice if they paid better attention to their food. The jumbo wings had to be a joke as they were the smallest and driest we had ever had. Beer is on the pricey side and the staff seems to have no passion for the job or the guests.
I don't like this place. It was built as a tourist trap/extension of the Mad River genre of bars/restaurants. If you want a comparison, think: Mad River's Metro Vibe + Noisy Oyster quality food. It's too bad considering the potential this location carries to be a prime time bar atmosphere. Instead it just falls to the wayside with the other tourist traps.
Sunday evening, the server was WONDERFUL,but....... unfortunately I don't call industrially pureed and frozen potatoes, canned gravy and freezer-burned sausages Bangers and Mash, and at $13.95 I brought home half of my serving and even the cats wouldn't eat the sausage and gravy.
Update, went on a Tuesday night, moderate crowd. Sat at the bar.
Service: one bartender was decent, the other seemed like she would rather be somewhere else.
Beer: still a decent selection of beer, lots of wasted taps, but a few good ones to occupy a pint or two.
Food: sliding down the deep crevasse. I got BLT, did not realize that everything was singular. There were a few slicess of bacon so no off points there, but a single thin slice of tomato and a single wisp of lettuce. BLT's are usually piled high sandwiches, this one barely put space between the slices of bread. It was as if they don't care.
Save yourself and only order beer at this place!
This bar really boring, the DJ there was at least 60 years old and played accordingly, would never go there again def a tourist trap it's just in a bad location.
"Irish pub & seafood restaurant". How about deciding on one theme and do it properly, please... you are NOTHING-- i repeat, nothing---like a real Irish pub. The food tastes like it's pre-packaged meals that have just been warmed up and slid over onto a plate. In years past, it was a fun place to go, now it's just gotten really sad.
this place is horrible... just horrible.
the staff is rude - strange & detached - kinda like robots. i know this place is out in the woods of 41 - but its a freak show in this place when it comes to staff...
the food is basically right out of the harris teeters frozen food section located next door - prices are high for what this place can offer. bug light bottle @ 3$.
i kinda got the idea its the only place to drink in this area and they have the locals trapped...
when you walk in this place -a big a$$ fake fireplace is staring right at you - it certainly sums this carnival side-show in the woods right up.....just freaky / fake/ and wierd.
I was very offended by the staff. Food was below average. A little better than McDonalds.
