“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

Our first clue should have been the fact that the dining room was empty. After a long day just wanted a quiet cocktail and dinner, had a choice of a high top in the bar or a table in the dining room, chose the later. Service was slow considering no one was there, waiter arrives in a dirty t-shirt and shorts and off we go. The food was adequate, my cocktail could only be rated as poor, and everything seemed really pricey for what you got.

I ordered a meal, partner a club sandwich, my cocktail and her Coke totals $57.00. Other parties were seated after us, and I noted at least one return their meal to the kitchen. This is not a stop we will return too.

“Good Irish Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

Varied Irish menu with very large sevings. The food was delicious and the service was right on. The only negative I can truly say was that the kitchen seemed to take a very long time to get the meals out, considering it was not that busy when we went to dinner, as we went very early. Very comfortable atmosphere and would recommend for dinner.

“Not sure what low reviewers were expecting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

O'Grady's came into a space previously set up for a fine dining restaurant. So if reviewers are expecting to find a place loaded with hundred year old mahagony bars with ancient brass rails, low ceilings and turf fires, they may find themselves disappointed. Maybe we're just lucky, but we've frequented O'Grady's on each trip to Stowe and each time we've met with more than pleasant hospitality. We travel as a large group - usually between 8 and 12 people. Our service this time was spot on, handling everything we needed without smothering us when we were having evening dinner conversation. The calamari and irish nacho appetizers were quick and delicious. My Irish Bangers and Mash included two large sized but tender and juicy bangers and perfectly blended potatoes. The bar selections met with every need from draft beers to wines to hard ciders. Ending the night with a well balanced Irish Coffee (just enough whiskey without drawing out the coffee flavor) was a terrific ending to a night of well represented Irish hospitality.

“Irish food in New England”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

Had dinner in O'Grady's. Food was ok, service smooth and friendly. We did not take any starters and that proved to be a good decision. The main courses were of decent size.

“Good pub food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

We chose this restaurant based on reviews, and their website indicated that there were 1/2 price entries on Sunday. When we got there, we found out the 1/2 price special was only during the off season. We decided to stay anyway. I had fish and chips and it was very good. The fish was very fresh and the batter was delicious. Portion size was tremendous. My husband and my sister had reuben sandwiches and they said they were really good. My son had a burger that was excellent. I would visit this restaurant again.
