“Great fish and chips!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

Had a great meal here at The Claddagh on a busy Saturday night - the Fish and Chips were excellent with fresh fish perfectly deep fried without being greasy. Great selection of beers and the cholocate pecan pie for dessert was the perfect ending!

“Good fish and chips.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

In fact, quite good fish and chips. A nice, large fillet of fish, deep fried in a good batter. Slightly oily, but tasty.
Would definitely pass on the mac and cheese -- some kind of "interesting" cheese that did not taste right.
Also, would pass on the shepherd's pie. Strong mutton taste, (older than lamb), mashed potato topping seemed industrial. The bread was so dry it almost crackled.
Average service, average to slightly higher prices for the greater area. I would guess several of the items came frozen from a central production facility, then microwaved. Not uncommon in restaurants, and it can be better that way -- more quality control. However, I could as well buy it in a grocery store, then. It was a bit overly so, where the food seemed too mass produced and not in a good way.
The fish and chips were good, though. Probably frozen with the batter by a supplier and deep fried on site, but still good.

“Nice Irish Pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Nice place. Service was fast and attentive. Fish and chips were very good. Generous portion. Batter was just right...not to thick, not to thin, not greasy. Apps were very good, but portions could have been a little bigger for the price. Nice selection of beer and liquor.
