“Felt like we were in Dublin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

This was actually our third visit to The Irish Bank. Every time we are in the city, we just have to stop and eat here. We will go out of our way to do so!

We always order a Shepherd's Pie to share and then something else, like Irish Stew or Fish and Chips. The food is authentic and delicious and we adore the atmosphere. Service is stellar too. If you're from the UK and missing home, you'll have to stop by this place!

Shaded outdoor seating. Easy to watch TV at the bar. Excellent cider and fish'n'chips. A must go to place next time I'm in the Bay Area.

“Lovely genuine Irish Pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

Just like a trip to Ireland. Off the beaten path and worth the extra few steps. A great place to have a few pints!

“A bit off the beaten path but worth the visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

A true Irish pub with both indoor and outdoor seating areas. Very unique looking place.... Shepards pie, fish and chips were excellent. Had many low priced entries with a great beer selection. Near union square and Chinatown gate.
