Sean Patrick's is a nice local Irish Bar. The staff is what you'd expect in that type of place - not overly friendly, not mean, just does their job. The shepherd's pie is good, the Reubens are good, and (strangely enough) the fettuccine Alfredo is very good. If you want a drink and pub grub, Sean Partick's is a good pick. Note: I can't rate the banquet service - never had a banquet dinner there.

This is a nice Irish eatery? They have lots of traditional Irish dishes and serve them up with a flair. The food is decent and the wait staff are friendly. Nice place to eat.

We started planning an New Years Eve event through Sean Patrick's for family and friends back in August / September of 2012. At first, things were starting to come together with the coordinator, but it was difficult to meet with her face-to-face. We had agreed initially that there would be a minimum of 30 and a max of 50 people attending, which they had said was no problem. As the date rolled around, everything was booked and ready to go until 4 DAYS before when Sean Patrick's called and now said that we would need to have a minimum of 40 people in order to still have the event and that our DJ we had booked and submitted to them in the past was now "not allowed to play there". After scrambling to find more people to fill the remaining slots and try to work something out with the DJ, Sean Patrick's was not willing to budge on anything OR honor their original agreement (once again, nothing in writing since the coordinator was never available face-to-face). After trying to negotiate with them on a reduced package to salvage the party, we were forced to cancel the day before due to them allowing us to have the party at a very reduced food selection and a reduction of 25% less bar time. We decided that it was not a worthwhile value for the money they were charging.

They are TERRIBLE at communication and no one there, neither the coordinator, the manager, or the owner knows what is going on at any given time. This was demonstrated by the various answers that we were given by each person. The coordinator agreed to the initial numbers, then was denied by the owner and passed on by the manager. The owner felt that he "didn't care if we came or not" since he kept the deposit anyways.

I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND that anyone looking for an event venue search ELSEWHERE. Any place has to be better than this place and if you do book through here, you will end up disappointed and stressed and possibly even as angry as us at having your event changed / canceled at the last minute. Or they will pull the old bait-and-switch and try to get more money out of you.

As of today, 1/3/2013, all negative comments from myself and our guests on their Facebook page have been "sanitized" (removed) so that there is no record of them being on there. They tried to lie to a guest who posted a negative comment about the party about whose fault it was and that they were not responsible, and when I responded to correct them with facts, they removed the posts. What a fantastic way to lose business! STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS DISHONEST BUSINESS!

Ok....there is certainly nothing "great" about this place at all.
At best it is average in quality, service, and environment.

Everything about Sean Patricks is old....they seem to serve old style food from an old outdated menu to old diners.
There was little creative on the menu to tempt us away from our usual "safe" order of Chicken Parm and a Reuben Sandwich.
Both were overpriced for the size and quality of the meal, and the sauce and pasta had no flavor at all.
The Reuben was greasy and smallish, with no accompaniments. Not really a meal at all...just an average, over-grilled sandwich.

We left feeling not quite full and that we had paid too much for what they delivered.
We'll stick to our favorite places next time.

Banquet manager Ron and wedding coordinator Liz were a pleasure to work with during the planning of our September 2012 wedding, especially on our wedding day. They went above and beyond to the make sure the bride and groom were happy. They were patient and very accomodating. We chose wedding package number two. The food was hot, the passed coctail hour appetizers were a hit, as was the potato soup! Service overall was excellent. Great team work! They allowed me to decorate to my liking, the way I envisioned our "big day." They served our wedding cake with ice cream and choice of topping; the petit four station with coffee afterwards is a nice touch. The back patio is lovely, as are the drapes, and chandeliers. The decor gives the banquet hall character and charm - offering a unique wedding venue, other than your typical run of the mill banquet hall. Look beyond your trendy wedding venues and trust in this gem for your beautiful wedding!
