Shebeen keeps popping up on my lists from time to time.
I am in the city this weekend and maybe I would put this on my list of new places to eat if I could get some recent feedback on cost vs quality. Best time to drop in and eat without hitting crowds, etc....
It's a bar with sawdust on the floor. Bartender/waitstaff very nice. Burgers are gigantic and taste-wise among the best in the city. Fish and chips are also good but I prefer the onion rings to fries. My husband loves the Irish pub sausage which comes entombed in a casserole of mashed potatoes They are most crowded on Thurs-Sat night but I've never had to wait at all on other nights. It's not cheap cheap but I consider it a good value.
The food is great and the prices are generally in line with pub prices. I have always gone in for a late lunch or early dinner, mostly on the weekends, and have never had to wait for a table. The best burger in the city, in my opinion.
I also think that Molly's has a great burger - and always cooked perfectly to order. Along with a Guinness and onion rings, an unbeatable combo.
And, don't forget the wonderful fireplace!
Monday-Thursday afternoons or eves are best.
