First time here, and not sure why that is now, but wont be the last. We were able to make reservations for our party but f seven the night before so we didn't have more than a 5 minute wait while they put the tables together. The food was great and there were no mix ups. Everyone had a great... More

I love everything about Geaghan's. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. Although I have never been to an actual pub in Ireland, this is what I would envision. The staff are amazing. The food is great and reasonably priced. I am not a beer drinker but from my husbands perspective the beer (brewed by Geaghan"s) is good and they have... More

Irish pub and brewery with great atmosphere. The burgers are great and they have the best fries I've ever had. The service is great too. Pretty loud place, so not the best for a cozy date, but great for a group of friends. Prices are great.

The restraint/pub staff always make you feel welcome and comfortable. It is a longtime local hangout for people after work to get together, watch a ballgame, have a meal, or tourists staying at local hotels including the nearby casino. Many families go here for a quick supper and the owners (brothers) have beer that they brew themselves in addition to... More

The atmosphere is nice except when they are extremely busy both on the bar side and the dining room. It is extremely loud and hard to focus on a nice time. When it's not extremely busy it is excellent. There isn't enough waiting room to wait inside the restaurant when it is extremely busy. I love the way both the... More

Not a beer drinker, but I do like wings. Geaghan's has their reserve sauce, which is a nice departure from the usual buffalo or honey mustard and bbq offerings. Friendly atmosphere, and reasonable prices. Our crew also enjoyed the dessert offerings. Nice spot to go when visiting at EMMC.

I've been a fan and regular customer of Geaghan's for years and supported their venture into beer brewing which has been a great success. However, I feel that they have let the brewing take over and don't care much about their food anymore. They used to have an awesome breakfast - one of the biggest reasons I went there and... More

We've eaten here twice when in town. The food we have had is good, typical pub food - fish and chips, burgers and fries, etc. They have a really good selection of beer (much of it they brew or it is brewed in Maine) and the decor is cheerful and interesting, featuring local places and items. The servers were fast... More
