I can't believe it took me so long to write a review of this fabulous restaurant/pub. Don't be confused by the reviews. There are 2 Catherine Rooney's and this one is in the Trolley Square section of Wilmington -- not in Newark (the "college town").
Having once lived in Ireland, I can attest to the fact that this Irish pub has a truly authentic feel to it, from the decor, to the delicious food, to the hospitality. There is a wide variety of menu items and everything I've tasted has been fantastic - truly. As in any successful pub, the owners and staff are an essential factor in the success or failure of the place as they set the general tone and atmosphere. Catherine Rooney's has a laid back, welcoming feel to it. People there are friendly and helpful, and it's the kind of place that even a stranger can feel at home.
Last year, I hosted a wedding shower in Rooney's "Parlor Room," and my guests are still talking about the incredible food, service and atmosphere. It was an event to remember. Give Catherine Rooney's a try -- you won't be disappointed.
