Bar
“Large sportsbar and ground zero for St Patrick's Day celebrations Uptown. Full bar and decent beer selection. Kitchen. In season, don't miss the crawfish truck parked outside and the raw oyster shucker out front. Trivia: the sign & name was borrowed from a previous 1930's bar in same location. Current operator Jeff had the sign in his shed and finally got to restore and hang it when he had the opportunity to lease the space. ”
