We've been there 4 or 5 times since they opened. In general, they are good, but we see uneveness from visit to visit. Today I had the Gaelic Steak Wrap which was pretty yummy. Mrs SBXSTR had the fish and chips: fish was good. She likes big time the corned beef. Our biggest gripe is the chips. The menu says hand-cut but lately they've been serving frozen steak fries. Not good. The first few times we went there, the hand-cut fires were pretty good. Going to ask to substitute a small salad if they are serving frozen fires the next time we go. Our server said you never knew what kind of fries would come out. They also need to pay attention to the grounds outside the building. We parked on the right side of the place and used those steps to enter. Broken beer bottles and hundreds of cigarette butts were around. Not enticing. It seems a little attention to detail would help this place succeed. On the positive side, love the Guinness and Smithwicks. But we can get these nearby.
