Good Irish pub. I really like it in summer time. We will go a couple times a year. The menu is limited but always good. The building is very old and charming.

Atmosphere for days. Nice stone building with rustic wood interior. Food is done very well. Very nice Irish feel, including being very social at expected times.

O'Lordan's is one of the best meals available in Westminster. Fare runs from pub sandwiches to traditional irish dinner and more. There is an outdoor smoking patio (downstairs) as well as a non-smoking (upstairs). It would be nice if they flipped them though because the smoke does waft up. Dinner in the old chicken coop is nice if you want... More

Irish food at its best! The corn beef and cabbage is the best and the Reubens are tremendous! Don't miss it if you're Irish or like Irish food!

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Locally purchased corned beef from Hahn's has made the flavors of both dishes superb. More

I ordered a Blarney Burger medium rare. It came well done. My wife ordered the corned beef dinner. The corned beef was obviously sliced processed lunchmeat. Very dissapointed!

I am very sorry that your burger was overcooked we would have gladly remade your burger for you. The Corned beef is locally purchased in brisket form from Hahn's and we braise and cook the brisket here in premise. We do slice it down using a meat slicer. I am sorry that you were disappointed and I do hope that... More

I love the beer battered cod they serve here. I'm not fond of the fries, but they will substitute them. I usually get the mashed potatoes. The potato leek soup is delicious. We have been several times, have never received poor service.

Loved the atmosphere and the menu. Results however were less than stellar! Cold food and indifferent service was the problem. I had duck, my daughter had the steak. Both were served lukewarm. On the plus side, the Ale was poured correctly and was delicious.

This is the best Irish pub and restaurant in Carroll County. Although the menu never changes, there is usually a Chef's special daily. The service is almost always excellent (occasionally you get a waiter/waitress with some attitude). We like to celebrate birthdays at this restaurant.

I usually start my review about my cosmo's. Bad!! Very bad poor, cranberry juice from soda spray that had a strange taste--I asked for the dirty rocks and I got a separate glass of plain ice. The waiter was overwhelmed with our group and not very friendly. I ordered shepards pie and it was just ok. I did not have... More

He atmosphere is very unique and unlike your usual eatery. Housed in an old stone building with architecture that males it look like an authentic Irish restaurant. It has good authentic Irish food plus other popular dishes. Surprisedly, it also has excellent crab cakes.

Description
A little piece of Ireland in historic downtown Westminster, Maryland. We serve both Irish and american flared dishes. The atmosphere is one that makes you feel that you have been transported across the ocean and landed you in the Irish country side. During the warmer months we offer al fresco dining on our two decks overlooking downtown Westminster. On the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays you can enjoy a traditional Irish jam session in the pub area from 8pm-10pm.
