    Usually themed restaurants are not all that as far as the food. Everything was great about this place, the food, the atmosphere and the staff were all excellent!!! We will go back.

    The staff was disorganized and our server at the bar was on the job for 3 weeks. He didn't know the menu and got tickets confused, we were offered other patrons meals in two different occasions. My date received her food 10 minutes before mine. The same thing happened to the couple sitting next to my date. This was our second time at the restaurant and while the first time was a great experience the second time was awful. We will not go back to this restaurant. I expect alot more after spending $175 for a date night dinner.

    The experience and ambience is beautiful but the food was subpar. We knew it was going to be an expensive date night but we did expect much better tasting food for how much it cost. I had the scallops and I’ve never had bland scallops or rice before until last night. My husband had the braised beef and it was ok but not great. Seeing how many wonderful reviews the food has, I’m hoping it was just an off night. The host was fantastic!! Our waitress was friendly but never checked on us through our meal to ask how it was or to refill our drinks. We left hungry and underwhelmed but with cute light up crowns, which we loved. I’m glad we got to experience it but probably won’t go back.

    The whiskey shrimp, brie and short ribs was awesome. The scallops were good but hardly any lemon sauce flavor so it was just so-so. Mead and beer was tasty. I will be back.

    The restaurant was/is absolutely adorable. I loved everything about it. There is no other restaurant like it. The food was amazing. The staff was super friendly. My Mom, daughter and I went on Mother’s Day and knew it was going to be busy. We were in no rush. I even got a text beforehand letting us know to expect slow service so I was ok with that. The only issue I had was that our waitress was so completely inattentive in the over two and a half hours we were there. She never once asked to refill our waters, our drinks or see how we were doing while we waited and waited. I actually got up several times and walked up to the bar myself to get ice and ask for something. I had to wave her down each time we needed something…which wasn’t much. Even thought they were busy, I thought she could have checked in on us a bit more. It was pretty bad. The table behind us was a table of four and they literally were in and out of the restaurant in about an hour. They each had full meals and alcoholic beverages…but a different waitress. Ugghh. Anyway, super fantastic restaurant and I would definitely go back again despite the service.

    Unique to be sure, and I’m glad we went, but the pricing was a bit off for the quality we received. Food was fresh but not always flavorful and the lobster special was very overpriced.

    This was a fun place to have dinner and drinks. It is festive and we felt like Hobbits in a tavern. The food and drinks was delicious. We had the cheese fondue - it is pricey but was good and worth trying once. The entrees were all delicious especially the corned beef pie. We did the Mead sampler and it was yummy as well. We will definetely go again.

    Fun atmosphere and delicious food. Finally settled on Tapas Baguettes (one of each flavor) and they didn't disappoint. Each of the four was unique and delicious and the flavors ranged from savory to sweet. We dined under the tree which, with its tiny lights, made it feel like we were in a fairy garden. AND we 3 ladies were each given a lighted flower wreath to commemorate the occasion. We'll definitely be back!

    We arrived a few minutes early for 6pm. Sierra seated us right away. It was a little smaller then expected. Next time we will not reserve the Social for Two as re were directly across from the bar stools. There are only two of the other types of tables for two. All others are for four or more? Food was delicious and our waitress was very good, Thanks Sierra!

    Food was delicious. The host at the was so so busy on his computer , he didn’t hear a word I said. I said I had a reservation for the bar area but now that I see the restaurant, I asked for a table in the main room. He then said you can have any table in the bar area or sit at the bar. I said can we get a table in the main dining room. He said sure. I’m Like, huh? Anyway, delightful decor and music. Ordered from an engaging young lady dressed to fit the decor. So it’s a kinda wacky Irish place. No Guiness, no Smithwicks or any Irish beer on tap. Only local beer. Pilsner was very good. Ordered our food. There for my wife’s birthday which I noted on the online reservation. Food arrived. All very good accept the mashed potatoes. They were scorched. Waitress never came by to see if everything was ok because she was too busy flirting with a guy at the bar. Finally got her attention, she come. Wife asked if she could get some potatoes that weren’t burnt. Waitress said why do you think they are burnt in a rather confrontational way. Wife said, well, they taste burnt. Waitress takes them, comes back with a fresh one and says, the chef says he scorched the first one. Ugh. We are just about finished with our but she does not notice or ask if we’d like another. Could have easily converted to additional sales. She goes back to flirting with the guy at the bar. The chef sent them knowing. Ugh. Food otherwise was really good. I went to the restroom. Waitress bought the check and and asked wif if it was my birthday. Wife says no. Waitress says reservation said birthday. No, not his birthday. I come back. Pay the bill, waitress says thought it was your birthday. No, it’s her birthday! Offers free dessert. Why she didn't ask her if it was her birthday is beyond me. She goes back to flirt with guy at the bar. Bottom line, ownership needs to train their staff. Not returning.

    Much smaller place than I expected. Decorated pretty cute and they provided a fairy light headband to everyone. Best thing of the night. The music was kind of disruptive as it was so close to the table. I was amused that what is described as a room for 5 is nothing more than a booth. The food… I have never given a bad review and it may be our tastes but none of us really liked the food at all. It is not your typical food, read menu closely online before you go. Portions weren’t very large. A saving grace I thought would be desert as they said they had it brought in from a bakery in Coloma. Well darn that wasn’t good either. It was quite expensive which I don’t mind when the food quality is what I might expect. If I have a bad dinner I usually will give a place a second chance, I don’t think that will happen this time. Many people were in there and seemed to enjoy it. The ambiance is pretty cool but 50 - 75 dollars for a meal and not to enjoy it is pretty disappointing. Oh yeah! The server was a sweetheart and did her best to answer all our questions. Thanks sweetie! I do get what they are trying to do at this place, I do… but it was a long drive and expensive.

    I went there for the live, Irish music that plays a few nights each week, but what And the food was fantastic, even according to my foodie husband. The chicken Caprice was healthy and delicious and my husband said that the chicken pasties were also fabulous. It looks like they have a fun menu for children also, including a mini dessert fondue. Such a fun place! It’s one of a kind.

    The fondue was bag shredded cheese that they had you melt yourself. I have had fondue many places and never in my life have I ever melted the cheese. The fondue is not cooked over an open flame, it’s on a electric hot plate that is plugged in under your table. The scallops were bay sized, not jumbo, were previously frozen, and over cooked to rubbery perfection. The salmon was also over cooked, not flaky, with an overly sweet sauce. We made reservations not knowing the restaurant would be almost empty, despite that, they still wouldn’t allow us to sit at a different table. The table we asked for stayed empty our entire dinner.

    The place was small but looked beautiful and definitely unique. It was busy due to the Valentine’s Day special. Our waitress was friendly however she forgot a few things that we ordered and gave us the wrong bill. The lobster tails were overcooked. The filet mignon was absolutely perfect. Overall the experience was good.

    Moved our time up and put us in the bar, took a long time to get a table and held us to two hour limit, even though we were not served until 5:30p. Forced to move to the bar, got cold Irish coffees, not a great experience, can not recommend.
