Real-deal Irish food, including fish cakes and smokies (salt-dried haddock that's smoked) are the highlight at the Rover. Real-deal Irish servers, too, including men and women. The pub claims to have taken relaxation to an art form. Well, our St. Patrick's Day festivities tend to be breakneck sprints to the vomitorium, but this could be a nice change of pace.
