have stopped in a couple times...
the food is ok. i had the lamb stew which was fairly good though i think it would do better as a beef stew for most peoples taste. it comes in a bread bowl which was good but fairly bland and should have been cooked more... slightly doughy, not crusted. my daughter got sheperds pie which was nice - hard to screw up, hard to make great. the appetizer of flat bread with toppings was actually a nice change of pace.
the draft beer selection is strictly european which is a nice change from the usual bud-blue moon-stella selection... guiness, newcastle, smidwick, murphys, killkenny and a couple others... but i think a couple US craft beers would help keep interest from beer drinkers going. also, not an overwhelming number of TVs which is good. sitting at the bar and watching hockey will work without having an A.D.D. attack from sensory overload from too many monitors (back room at nick's; any number of other sports bars)
they set up the stage well and i look forward to seeing bands there. there in no seperation of the bar patrons from the dining patron which i think would help... its all one large open space which still feels strip-mall rather than any comfortable cozy type setting other than one large table set off on its own in a niche... they should repeat that gesture a few times.
i am hoping the heavy traffic helps the bar providing they survive the coming secor reconstruction. its not an unsafe area?! and the additional people coming and going should help. the parking lot is an absolute mess and needs to be reconfigured.
