This is a place that has great potential; but, sadly it is so poorly managed that it does not warrant a recommendation. My recommendation is to spend your money elsewhere. If you are still reading to this point I'll give you the details. The decor is old, dingy and very dark. The service is slow and disorganized, the server we... More

Went today with some colleagues for lunch. Place was busy, but I wouldn't say packed, which is very odd for St. Patty's Day, this may be why, the owner is inhospitable. I have never experienced such service from anyone, let alone an owner. No greeting when we arrived just the look of annoyance. It amazed us, he made us all... More

This was a very average experience all across the boards. If you're looking for a pub and you're in the neighborhood then go for it. You know what to expect. The service was friendly. Share the love and give me a helpful vote -- thanks.

I visited this premises with coworkers yesterday and I can honestly say I will never go there again. Their food is horrible. The stuff is friendly but the owner is rude. He made rude comments on our orders.

Popped in for a quick brew and some fish and chips. Place is clean and staff is friendly. Fries were home cut and excellent(A+). The fish (2 pieces of haddock) I believe, was tasty, but smaller pieces in too much dough covering. It was a tasty cover, but it masked the taste of the fish. No coleslaw included. $12. Hmmm....

The Black Irish Pub was truly an unexpected find. Excellent pub food and numerous Irish drinks on tap - I have now found my local guiness watering hole! The place is clean, food is tasty and high-quality (Guiness-battered onion-rings are a must), and it has a very comfortable and friendly atmosphere.
