Fine pub and service, unfine food – I went with some friends after work and had a nice time. They have a nice selection of beers on tap and several TVs for watching sports. The onion rings and potatoes are edible, but avoid, at all costs, the Caesar salad.
Irish expats and Anglophiles converge in this Upper Haight pub. – In Short
The house stereo often plays Britpop and swigs from pints follow a bevy of Irish accents, whose owners come here for a taste of the Emerald Isle. Gaelic football and English Premier League soccer games are shown on the numerous televisions, so a heavy lad contingent from both countries dominates during matches. To help absorb the lager-and-stout banter, a quieter room of approximately 10 tables serves up Irish, American, Mexican and Indian cuisine.
it's okay if you want to meet tourists and irishment – used to think of this place as kind of spiffy, but it's getting a rundown, sour beer smell.
staff: indifferent and utterly without charme. not friendly toward dogs. beer is served short . . . too much foam and these are europeans staffing the place. it's a little untidy, sticky and crowded.
Great spot for a pint (or several) and some footie – One of my favorite retreats when my partner is shopping in the Haight, good brew choices and plenty of sport to watch
Great pub nestled away on Haight Street – Found this place while walking up and down trendy Haight Street. A fantastic find!
Great atmosphere and loads of room. They have separate bar and restaurant areas so you can eat and then go down a few.
Very authentic fish n. chips (I should know) and it's not on the menu, but ask for some gravy with your chips. Brilliant!
They show loads of football from all leagues and countries, so you can always get your fill. Great (price) drink specials too. Who can resist $2 Miller Lite drafts (esp. in SF!)
Good Luck from the Irish – If you're looking for mellow, don't come. If you're looking for great bar staff, fun clientele, then walk in.
Great jukebox (mix of dance, indie rock, irish classics, etc), good drink prices. Sunday's get really crowded but can be a lot of fun!
Amazing!!! – World Cup night, 4 a.m., Germany-South Korea. They open up for desperate football fans, don't charge a penny. Since they can't serve drinks, they offer complementary coffee instead. Three cheers!!!
