  • ChefMozWho would have thought an Irish restaurant would have such great fried chicken? For years I didn't try the food, just stuck with single malt irish whiskey and listened to the great music. Little did I know what I was missing. Fun place--check out the dollars on the ceiling! Try it on a weeknight if you don't want to fight the crowds.

    33333 by Phil B
