While I've been for drinks before but never ordered, I was impressed when we went there for dinner. Service was fantastic and the food was served promptly. Our starter and meals were delicious. Neither of us were able to finish our meal, probably should have thought twice about ordering a starter but it was all so delicious that we have... More

We just dropped in for a few drinks on New Year's eve before we went out for dinner. The place was very busy but we are able to find a nice little table for two and the service was excellent. The waiter was fast and friendly and asked us if we wanted our drinks refilled without us having to get... More

So disappointed. Went in to have a drink on our way back to the hotel and we were REFUSED TO BE SERVED. I think it was because they were done having customers for the night....So disappointing. Such bad experience to have for a night out with friends to celebrate a birthday, to come from out of town and get turned... More

We stopped in,as there was live music playing of the Irish gendre-love it! We were on the bar side(there are 3 levels) and it was packed. The atmosphere was one of a fun kitchen party-the music was Irish and wonderful. Everyone was singing along and tables chatting to each other. The decor is very warm and inviting. We had to... More

This was our third or fourth visit to Old Triangle. It never disappoints. We were a large party at lunchtime and they quickly put together tables for us. Service was prompt and the food was really good. Good variety on the menu.

Popped in for a couple pints after walking around the city all day. We were chilly and this place was warm all the way around. Talked to the bartender for a good amount of time...great guy...talked to the waitress about her neices Big Tuna Catch. This place made me feel like a local. Or like I wanted to be.....

My husband stopped in for lunch one day and I was excited to just be there. The décor was awesome and there are so many cool nooks and corners for you to sit in. The menu was huge and I had trouble even deciding what to eat. The staff was uber friendly and our meal came out promptly even with... More

Loved this place. A nice Irish pub with a large beer selection with all sorts of local beers available. The menu was great with lots of options. Prices are reasonable. There is often live music depending time of day. Food came out quick and was delicious. I love Irish pubs and this one was awesome! I will return the next... More

Frequently visit for lunch. Good selection of pub food. Lots of seating space in large pub. Food is very reliable and always meets expectations. Good selection of beers, including local brews. Usually good and experienced waiting staff.
