What makes this place a true local favorite is the fact that when it originally burned down in 2006, the locals got together and raised enough funds to bring it back from the ashes. Nothing truly shows the appreciation of the community not to just bring back an excellent establishment for amazing food and company, but true love for the owners. Tons of great dishes here such as House Baked Ham and the Irish Trilogy of French Toast to name a few, but tons more over the many generations. Since opened up in 1941, it's a great mix of Irish classic dishes with American fare for all to enjoy. So it's not surprise that after 65 years in service, the local community did not want to see it go away, and they made sure it didn't. Everything is made on site and from fresh, mostly local ingredients. Made to order and never frozen, you can expect terrific quality here. Some totally awesome menu stars include the leprechaun bites, Portobello breakfast sandwich, fresh hash with chunks of corn beef, mini pancakes with plentiful fresh toppings and plenty more. Quirky, fun place to visit when in Middletown.
