We come regularly when in NOTL because we know that in a tourist town it is hard to find a place that is consistently great. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, sometimes there is music. The menu has true Irish food and the beer menu is also vast. Shepards pie is wonderful. I wish the soup was not so thick... More

We wondered just off the main drag to visit this authentic Irish Pub. The food is amazing and very much like that you would find in Ireland. The portions are big and the price is not bad!

Great atmosphere in a lovely old building. Irish Stew=delicious. Poutine=heaven. Huge portions so bring your appetite. Fish and Chips=meh...little rubbery but fish so fresh and flaky! Jill, our server, was delightful. Be sure to ask for her. I don't know for authentic but I know about GOOD! Make a stop here on your trip through the Ontario wine country.

I was intrigued to visit an "Irish" pub in Niagara on the Lake. It was very busy and we had to wait a couple of minutes for a table. Service was good, food was good and good value. It was lovely to taste Harp after many years.

The Irish Harp Pub, Ireland at home. Setup as a genuine replica of the typical Irish pub, the owners came over and then sent for the room parts. Paneled walls, short bar with typical stools from Ireland. Food to compliment the Guinness, Whiskeys. Stew, Shepard’s Pie. Irish Teas available as well. Entertainment, the Rover's style, from local talent. Put in... More

It is not on the main drag so you have to know about it to find it. No doubt one of the most gourmet pubs I have ever been to. Try the garlic bread for example. To die for! All dishes were well presented and service was excellent. The decor is very nice and cozy as well.

We make a point to eat here whenever we are in Niagara on the Lake. It is very inviting, the décor is very warm with lots of wood. The staff is always friendly, the food is terrific. My wife loved her corned beef and cabbage. Our server, Jules, was very good and really has the right personality for the job.... More

An authentic Irish pub experience here in Niagara on the Lake. In 2007 our founder Trevor Smyth built a pub to rival any on the emerald isle. Our focus is on using fresh quality ingredients in large portions. We will do anything to please our guest. Service is a point of pride at this pub. We deeply appreciate when guests choose us and want them to have an excellent time. We welcome customers as if they are guests in our home.
