We decided to give this place a try tonight and I am so disappointed. The food is absolutly, undeniably horrendous. We make it a point to sample a few things the first time we visit a place so we ordered the Spinach and Artichoke Dip, Appetizer Boxty, the Cream of Potatoe soup, Crab Cake and Meatloaf. The Boxty was the only good thing. We got the one with the guiness marinated brisket. The Spinach and Artichoke dip was blah, it just did not have the flavor or texture it should have. Both the meatloaf and the soup were over seasoned with Rosemary and didn't offer much else flavor wise. The crab cakes were under done and had a lot of fillers. The crab had a fishy smell so I surmised it was not very fresh and it had not been cleaned well, as I had some large pieces of shell in my crab cakes. The vegetable served with the dinners were good but the potatoes appeared to be instant potatoes. They were flavorless and had an odd texture like they had been pureed and then had some grit added. \r
Only the patio and the bar area were open and both were very plain as far as decor goes. You don't get much of an irish pub, or really any type of pub feel when you walk in. And they only had one waiter working the entire place, everything from seating you to busing the tables!\r
Overall this was some of the worst food I have ever had in the Triangle, which is saying a lot since we eat out about twice a week and regularly try new places.\r
My advise skip this place and go to the Hibernian if you want good Irish food and atmosphere.
Pros: Parking, waitstaff was friendly, good Boxty
Cons: Almost all the food is terrible, no irish feel
