Cozy, old-school pub serving Irish & updated bar food originally stood in Ireland & was rebuilt here- Google
People talk about traditional irish, fish and chips, comedy zone, warm spinach & artichoke dip and corned beef and cabbage

I have been here several times and they shows are always great. For such a small place, they get some great standup comedians! I would highly recommend checking out a show and grabbing a bite to eat. The staff is super friendly and the entertainment is top notch.

This is the place in this area for fine Irish bar food at a good price - the fish and chips are especially good! I'm baffled at the low rating here - it deserves better than almost all of the Cornelius restaurants listed! I gather some had poor service - mine's always been very good indeed! And hokey or not, the atmosphere works (and I've been in pubs in Galway!) Really worth a try!

Restaurant interior is very welcoming and cozy in the winter. Food is a little above average and the portions are sizable. Good beer selection but make sure you ask questions from the very good service staff prior to making a selection. Overall a pretty nice place.

Love this place! My husband and I go regularly, and especially enjoy sitting out on the lovely patio! Haven't had a bad dish yet, but am partial to the fish and chips!

Love the atmosphere. The sesame salmon was delicious. The beer selection was also great. Mixed with friendly servers. Will recommend and go back.
