* I really wish there was a bar like this around my area because I would frequent it all the time! The staff is so friendly, sparking conversations and offering recommendations with ease. It feels like a family run bar, with a very authentic Irish atmosphere. An interesting trait to the bar is the sawdust that covers the floor!
Chicken Potpie – When the chicken potpie arrived, the soup was still bubbling around the fluffy pastry on top. I just knew that it had just come out of the oven. The soupy interior was hearty, creamy, and delicious. They certainly didn’t skimp of the chicken because I could hardly finish all that chicken breast pieces. The vegetables included carrots and peas. The pastry was buttery and flakey, soaking up the flavorful cream broth mixture. The whole bowl was a great frigid temperature kind of meal.
Lamb Stew – Notably hot! Like the chicken potpie, the stew was steaming. The stew was thick, hearty, and full of meat, potatoes, and other seasonal veggies. The broth was rich and flavorful. It warmed the body right up!
French Fries – We went back and forth about getting the fish and chips, so we settled for the chips which were, to our surprise, golden crisp and wonderfully mushy on the inside! The fries weren’t seasoned, so we helped ourselves to the salt and pepper on the table.
Bloody Mary – This was pretty standard. I wish there was more heat and pickle to it to make me smack my lips.
