    James Hoban's never disappoints. Consistently good food and a nice atmosphere. Service can be a bit spotty, especially when sitting outside. Overall a great place!

    Good service. Food nowhere near what was shown in pictures. Had Irish stew, very thin gravy almost like soup, about 1/3 the amount of meat and 1/4th the amt of vegetables and no potato on top like picture. Rather disappointing. More like Irish stew soup. Music not Irish but modern and rap

    The service, ambience and food was great. Please turn down the tv since it was annoying loud. I don't go out to eat to hear the sports announcers at ear defying volumes.
