The food here is average, nothing special and nothing I'd brag about. It's very dark so dark I had to use light from my phone to see menu. The service was very good.. the hostess and waitress were very friendly.. I'd come back to drink but for food I'm not sure, maybe an appetizer next time.. had a burger and... More

Great building, great beer selection, always something good on the menu. Very busy in the winter and much slower in the summer. No patio which us unfortunate. Very good food and attracts quite a crowd of younger folks later on the evening. One of the key places for kids to go later at night. Pleasant atmosphere, good food (some Irish/British... More

Awesome service ! Food was excellent. I had the bombay curry chicken on rice - lots of chicken and broccoli and cauliflower and curry sauce - very tasty ! My better half had the Le Snob Burger and said it was rich and unusual and delicious. (Unusual with the pairing of brie cheese, foie gras and the burger).

This is an Irish pub in a 200 year old building that was once a stable. The food is ok and some of the dishes can be pretty good. Some dishes are very large. Service is outstanding. Clearly, management is paying attention to customer service and there is a good deal of training for the servers. I am told that... More

Went for dinner with 2 friends food was decent for a pub. But when we saw several cock roaches crawling around we quickly left. It's a shame really is.

The Slainte is not much to look at from the outside, but don't let that fool you. Once you get in, there is traditional pub food and many other options and interesting spins on regular menu items. We had very good service from Haley and enjoyed our Shepherds pie and Dublin Bridie. BTW...the french fries are exceptional!! The Slainte is... More

Slainte is in a beautiful old stone building that was once a coffin factory. Warm wood tables, a painted floor and interesting lighting create an inviting space. The chalkboard tells you that the burgers are handmade and many other items come from local producers. Desserts are house made. We were offered a sample to try an unknown (to us) draft... More

We went here on a Saturday to celebrate the kids winning their soccer play off match. Great atmosphere. Kids made to feel welcome too. Decent food, great service and good beer. What's not to like?

I visited this place on March 15th, 2013 to get a head start on the St. Patrick's Day celebration. My daughter and I did a little research and found this place for it's history. We were not disappointed. The owner was a gentleman and recommended the beer which was so delicious. We enjoyed the busy atmosphere and sat at the... More

Awesome place! Nice city location not too far from other bars. Lots of fun, can get very busy though.
