We were a group of 12. They do not take reservations, but we got there at 5:30pm, and were seated immediately. Nice little corner for us all. The waitress was quick at first taking our drink order. She took our food order a few minutes after she delivered our drinks. All was good until we got the food. Not sure... More

First time here. We wait about 40-45 to our ( basic and standard) lunch. The food is "ok" but not more than "ok" The waiting time ( not only for the food! For coffee and water refill as well) makes it.....question for 2nd visit.

We ate dinner at Erin's Snug on Valentine's Day (my friend's birthday). So many "Irish pubs" these days give little more than a nod to Irish food. This one seemed to be making more of an effort. I had the house meat stew, topped with a puff pastry crust. It had a deep, rich flavor and contained homey vegetables, including... More

We stopped in on a Sunday afternoon at 3. Eight people. It was not football season and not busy. The hostess seated us and we didn't have a waitress for several minutes. When we did see a waitress, she yelled across the room indicating that she would be there shortly. All but one ordered Guiness, the other soda. No offer... More

I hate writing mediocre reviews, for I know that it is difficult enough to compete in today's economy without some whiny customer crying about their experience. However, the time to get our Sunday brunch was just insane. The whole procedure was just slow, and the food wasn't even completely delivered. The staff was very cordial but challenged by the lack...

We had a great time celebrating a birthday here. The staff were so accommodating as our party grew. We invited a number of folks but weren't sure how many would show up and the staff just kept adding tables and it was great! Service was very good and food delicious. Everyone enjoyed themselves in this wonderful Irish setting. I'm looking... More

We stopped in here on Jan 7th on our way through Wisconsin. We have eaten here a couple of times before so hoped it would still be the same and it was! I had had the fish and chips on a previous occasion, so decided to try something new. I had the Guinness beef stew, and I have to say... More

Every bar and restaurant has a Friday night fish fry, but here they do the traditional fish and chips and it's the best fish around. We drive about 40 minutes to treat ourselves here sometimes and it's always worth the drive. If there is any bad weather however call ahead, we drove before Christmas and it was closed.

Let me start by saying this place is huge. Really cool décor inside, very cozy and warm. I would recommend this place to anyone that likes a good pub. Food was awesome and beer was cold. We will be coming back for sure!!!!

Only had the pleasure of going for lunch but the minute I walked through the door I knew this was the place for me. Great bar with a large selections of beers from around the world and good menu. I only sat at the bar to eat but the bar staff were spot on, great service and are an asset... More
