Pat Troy's is a fun Irish pub, similar to nearby Murphy's, but with a little bit of an older, more subdued crowd. We randomly showed up one chilly February night and it just happened to be the night of the Great Guinness Toast. After grabbing one of the numerous open tables, and ordering a few beers, we were given a ticket for a drawing later. We watched the lone entertainer with his guitar play Irish pub songs along with some more modern American songs like Country Roads, sort of the usual music you expect at a place like this.

Around 11pm, a short, white haired guy in green came up on stage. As far I we could tell, he was the owner. In his thick Irish accent he led a toast to Guinness, then began calling out numbers to give prizes of Guinness beads, shirts, and hats. It was pretty annoying because it went on so long, but he was kind of funny. After about 20 minutes, the live music restarted.

Pat Troys serves a variety of Irish foods from open until close at 2am. Their menus include Irish specialties like fish and chips and lamb stew, along with a variety of sandwiches, soups, salads, and appetizers.
