“Great place”

Great little place. Excellent choice of menu, good food, friendly staff & welcoming atmosphere. Can highly recommend the chocolate brownie sundae (you'll need to share it, its huge!)

“Fantastic! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

We have just returned from a night at paddy's and it was wonderful! There is such a welcoming feel as soon as you step in! We had only intended to go for one drink, but hours later we left!

Everyone was so friendly, the bar staff even more so and we were looked after very well! We ate ( on recommendation from Kyle) the calamari and skins, both of which were amazing, especially the calamari! There were very reasonably priced for the fabulous food and amount you were given!

We both had a wonderful night, felt very welcomed, met some great locals and listened to the amazing live band! What a great way to end out stay in SLO!

“Good food live music!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

My daughter and I ate here while passing through SLO on the way to take her to summer camp. We had a very tasty dinner of fish and chips (her) and fish tacos (me). She loved her fish and chips and I enjoyed my fish tacos although the wine I had was excellent! It was Gray Wolf a red blend made in nearby Paso Robles. The best part of this dinner in my opinion was the live band! It is so rare to find a live band that is both enjoyable and free! I wish we could have stayed longer to listen but the restaurant was preparing for a private party that had rented the entire restaurant.

“Great Clubs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

The club house sandwich was excellent but large. The fries have garlic on them so if you don't like garlic tell them. Priced right and pub style atmosphere.

“Totally solid”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Ok, we were looking for just a quick bite to eat for dinner, close to our hotel. Front lobby person suggested this place down the block. We were a bit skittish because of the "pub" part. Nothing to be skittish about for sure!

Hostess was nice, wait staff great. TVs everywhere and very accommodating trying to watch what we wanted. Beer and food were fantastic. It's nice and out of the way of the crazy downtown. Will totally go back!!
