I was at this place on 12/26/11 for a nice cold Guinness and left the place utterly disappointed. The first bartender was pretty good, respectful and attentive (The guy with glasses and beer belly). Then an idiot in his late 20's / early 30's showed up around 8 PM. Every he said or did just pissed me off, so I'll outline them here:
1) Kept feeding alcohol to this one girl sitting next to me so she could be so wasted for another guy to take here somewhere. This is actually illegal to give alcohol to an already intoxicated person. He kept making fun of her and was acting very obscene with his Irish buddy. If you are a girl and go there by yourself, watch out for this dude and his friends.
2) It took for ever to get a beer from this guy and he was only paying attention to a small group of people and making fun of others. This guy is a complete jerk who should not be bar-tending.
3) After my 4th Guiness and 3rd from my friend, I asked about Buyback, which is very common gesture in Irish Pubs. The idiot reply ""A buy back is like a BJ ... it is nice to get it, but very bad to ask for it."" So, at this moment I left the bar and took the 12 dollar tip I had on the table for him. I'm sure his hemorrhoids came out, but hey, that's was it for me; I will never go to this place again.
BTW: The Guinness were not that good either; nothing like the joints in Woodside, just a few blocks away from this area.
