“Irish Karaoke Pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2014

Walking in to the Atlantic Bar & Grill, it is hard not to feel that you are in an Irish pub. The staff was friendly and about as Irish as you can get. We happened to be there on karaoke night, so it does get a bit louder. The food was really good. Two of us ordered the McGinty Burger which had corned beef and cabbage besides a 1/2 lb. burger. Very tasty. The fries were large and the side of mashed potatoes instead of the fries was quite good. Real mashed potatoes with onion gravy. One of us ordered the Irish staple - corned beef and cabbage and she was quite happy with it. And finally one had the Atlantic grill which was a fish and chips platter. She felt that the fish was excellent. Nice place to stop in.

“Friendly Irish Pub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2012

The Atlantic Bar & Grill is an authentic Irish pub where you can great a fine pint of Guinness on tap as well as a host of other beers, and spirits. The atmosphere is salubrious and welcoming and the staff is friendly. Now the bad news: The wine list is nothing to speak of, and the food is barely edible. Still, a great place to come for a pint.

“fun place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2012

If you like hockey, this is the place for you. The food is fabulous and the atmosphere fun. It's always a great place when the owner waits on you table himself!

“Bangers for your Buck.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2011

I'm talking about sausages imported from Ireland with real mashed potatoes, onion gravy, and a pint of Guiness. The owner Cathal Lynch ( the "t" is silent ) is also fresh from Ireland, and the Atlantic Bar & Grill is as Irish as you can get. He is a fine chap and his crew were friendly and attentive, There are other daily specials on the menu - Shepherds Pie, Scotch Egg, as well as musical selections like the band "Number Nine" if you come on the right night. The Atlantic celebrates their fifth anniversary November 12th, with Irish trappings minus the green plastic shamrocks. A great place to eat, drink, dance, and sing if you are in the neighborhood.
