What a uniquely decorated place! Vintage signs, devices and memorabilia of Irish and early 1900's American origin. NOT replicas like Ruby Tuesday's. The building itself dates back 100 years - you can feel the weight of history. The food and service were excellent... though no "bangers and mash" on the menu... ;( No worries, the Irish Mixed Grill was more... More

Mid-week, mid-January dinner here was excellent. Seated immediately, drink orders taken promptly, Our waitress suggested a single potatoe cake appetizer when I worried that the full appetizer serving would be too much. Perfect. Pulled pork special for my hsband, sirlion on spinach salad for me. Very generous servings, hot, tasty. A cozy setting for a cold winter night. ,

When I take the family here, it is always, ALWAYS top notch. Beef Stew, the Irish Mixed Grille, Ploughman's Dinner, and the Fish & Chips are some of my favorites. The kids love it, they have a great kids menu and the owners are pleasant and wonderful. This place deserves 10 stars it is so good. Probably the BEST in... More

Amazing food, great atmosphere. Irish folk music on Sunday evenings. Beef stew, Gaelic chicken and ribs are to die for

Amazing decor, FANTASTIC staff and excellent food! Nice spot to sit and relax for the evening. We requested our bill after some drinks, apps and our meal.. The waiter said they only provide them on request as they don't want to rush their good customers away. I thought that was great as we weren't rushed out. We will absolutely be... More

Just rolled out of one of the eating establishments we've ever been in. Atmosphere is intriguing...like a museum. Service was outstanding from door to table. Go with the waitress (Stephanie) recommendations and know you're taking home leftovers for tomorrow's dinner. Don't stop there.... Have the dessert. Bread pudding was sooooo good. Wish we didn't live 10 hrs away. We'd be... More

Food, service, ambience consistently good. Had the mussel in a delicious tomato sauce; chicken pot pie teeming with chicken (!); fish 'n chips fresh and cooked perfectly; steak great. Bailey's cheesecake a great finish.

Have been to May Kelly's two or three times and can definitely recommend the Sunday afternoon Irish music in the pub. Local musicians have a weekly session that really complements the experience. We all enjoyed our food during our recent dinner. The Gaelic pizza was a revelation. I had a very generous fish and chips. The fries were excellent, the... More
