“Decent food but shady business practices”

Blackthorn Restaurant & Irish Pub

Reviewed 8 August 2014

The food was ok when I went but the fact that they were being investigated by the attorney general for serving customers less expensive liquor disguised as top shelf brands is a red flag.

To get out of the investigation they sold the liquor license to Houlihan's which is another shady practice versus risking losing it.

I would never eat here again because I cannot trust a restaurant that acts in this manner.

A generally good to very good place for dinner and drinks. Food is usually good, usually very busy. They were CLOSED all week the week of May 25th 2014 so call ahead if you plan to visit. There were evidently some issues (check the local newspapers) with the local authorities. Visited twice in May before they "closed" unexpectedly.

Great food, good value - one of the best Irish pub in the area. Only downside is that it gets a big bar crowd after work so it is very loud, especially on weekends. Would recommend it for lunch if you want to hear each other.

I expect this is mostly for locals due to the neighborhood. The food was pub grub but good and the beer selections was good and the bartender knows his craft.
