I was actually really disappointed in this place. I used to be a sham regular in 2007-2009, but moved away for a couple years. I came back and was pretty disappointed. I didn't expect to have the same bartenders there, but I got so spoiled with John and Dan and Jen who were rockstars, that I was really disappointed that the 4 times I've been in there since moving back to Portland have all been bad. I've been treated like it was an annoyance to get me a drink by some tall blonde chick and waited for 15 minutes for a drink from a redheaded chick that was working when it wasn't that busy and had about 15 people in the whole place. I found a friday night that wasn't too shabby, but the same bartenders that were rude when I was there before, was there getting drunk with some other bartender that works there and making idiots of themselves, which I thought really brought down the class of the place. The last time I went in there to see what was up there were like 4 people in the whole place.... Given the service I've received and what I had seen since moving back to Pdx, I can see why. I won't be returning there. Don't bother with this place Portland... there are WAY better bars out there!!!
Strong drinks – I love the fact that they have FREE POOL!! This is the main reason that I go there. The drinks are fairly strong for pretty cheap. I have been there a few times on Saturday nights and have had to wait for over ten minutes at the bar to get a drink, because the bar tender is out having a smoke even though they see me standing at the bar. The mens room does always have urine on the floor by the urinal, these are the only two downsides to the bar. I would recommend it to all
really nice place! – Have been in there a few times. LOVE the bartenders! Jen and Alex are my favorites! Really clean place for being off 82nd ave. no riff-raff or what you would expect to find in a SE 82nd bar. GREAT specials!! $2 well drinks during happy hour is a great deal! they are also more of a sports bar and always have sports games going on the nice big screen TV and daily drink and food specials. Best of all, they are one of the few bars that has FREE POOL EVERY DAY!! My friends and I love to pop in there at night and play some pool for free and spend our money on the cheap drinks! Food isn't great, but its your typical bar grub. Great atmosphere and really friendly people!
Editorial Review by Mary Morley – SE Irish pub serves local microbrews, Irish beers and a full menu ranging from cheeseburgers to fish-and-chips.
GREAT NEW BAR!! – Saw this place there other day. Almost drove right by but stopped and checked it out. Everything is brand new. No smoke smell. Nice wood bar. New pool tables. New Plasma. Big menu with lots of cheap food. I had the fish and chips which they actually made with real fish. Crazy... I know!! Lots of micros on tap. All in all a great new place. Not too busy yet but what do you expect. They've only been open for like a month. Its going to pick up soon!! Defiantly recommend this place.
