OUR FAVORITE FOOD/PRICE
We dined here on St. Patrick’s Day, so in addition to the normal menu offerings, the eatery offered some traditional Irish dishes. To kick things off we ordered an appetizer of loaded nachos ($9.99), a towering platter of tortilla chips, chili, pico di gallo, jalapenos, lettuce, cheese, gua- camole and sour cream. The dish was a little light on toppings halfway down the stack, so the waitress graciously agreed to pile a few more on. I ordered the corned beef and cabbage ($14.99), and found it a superior version of the traditional Irish dish, with tender and nicely seasoned beef and not-too-soggy cabbage. Several steamed carrots and potatoes accompanied the meal, and I savored the once-a-year opportunity to enjoy the Irish favorite.

Good service despite having to wait more than 30 minutes for a table, given the holiday crowd. The waitress was very friendly and checked on us regularly to refill drinks.
T h e mus i c a n d c rowd were very loud, when most patrons were decked out in green and green beers were the novelty of the day.
Children have their own fun menu of burgers, mac and cheese, ribs, chicken nuggets shaped like dinosaurs, grilled chicken tenders and mini corn dogs.
