My husband and I went on a Sunday afternoon, it was surprisingly busy for an off time. Hostess wasn't super friendly but found us a table next to a group- under a TV with the game on- we asked for a quiet booth. The hostess wasn't thrilled, one was empty but it took awhile because it needed to be cleaned.... More

Overpriced and horrible. Absolutely horrible. Drive a few more miles and find something better. I am a smaller sized person, so I don't care about portions. However, when I think I will be taking half of a 3-egg omelet home- the joke was on me. It's one egg. Very small. For 10.00. Cook forgot the cheese. Hash browns not edible.... More

I have never been in a place that made me feel like I was in another country, this place was very interesting. The record was fantastic and it matched the food! The service was great and our waitress was nice and very friendly. The food portion was perfect! My kids meals were good and they loved the place! A must... More

We ordered an appetizer of Irish Smoked Salmon and it was excellent but as we were waiting for our food a large VERY LOUD group came in. They were just standing and drinking and talking very loud-so much so that we asked to take our food to go. On a better note-the food was very good. I had a Salmon... More

We had dinner for seven of us in the late afternoon. The restaurant was not busy at all yet, but it still took longer than I expected for our food to come out. Everyone in our party thought their food was excellent. We needed to be somewhere at a certain time. We had finished eating, and were waiting for a... More

We were a group of 12. They do not take reservations, but we got there at 5:30pm, and were seated immediately. Nice little corner for us all. The waitress was quick at first taking our drink order. She took our food order a few minutes after she delivered our drinks. All was good until we got the food. Not sure... More

First time here. We wait about 40-45 to our ( basic and standard) lunch. The food is "ok" but not more than "ok" The waiting time ( not only for the food! For coffee and water refill as well) makes it.....question for 2nd visit.

We ate dinner at Erin's Snug on Valentine's Day (my friend's birthday). So many "Irish pubs" these days give little more than a nod to Irish food. This one seemed to be making more of an effort. I had the house meat stew, topped with a puff pastry crust. It had a deep, rich flavor and contained homey vegetables, including... More

We stopped in on a Sunday afternoon at 3. Eight people. It was not football season and not busy. The hostess seated us and we didn't have a waitress for several minutes. When we did see a waitress, she yelled across the room indicating that she would be there shortly. All but one ordered Guiness, the other soda. No offer... More

I hate writing mediocre reviews, for I know that it is difficult enough to compete in today's economy without some whiny customer crying about their experience. However, the time to get our Sunday brunch was just insane. The whole procedure was just slow, and the food wasn't even completely delivered. The staff was very cordial but challenged by the lack...
