The food is quite good and they have a great selection of beer, but everything is very overpriced. Bar nights are a nightmare, with a line going around the block sometimes and people pushing and shoving to get from anywhere to anywhere once inside. Upstairs feels like an authentic Irish pub, and they should encourage people to eat there more... More

My spouse and I enjoyed the Novemburger at this downtown area restaurant. We were greeted pleasantly at the door, seated immediately and given table choices. We were advised who our server would be. Our server arrived shortly after the hostess seated us. Our drink orders were taken promptly and delivered quickly and accurately. Very well paced service. Our food orders... More

Stopped in Slainte for for dinner and a couple pints. The outside is rather plain and almost uninviting. Once you go in, which you should, it is a great pub. The atmosphere is one of a solid pub, complete with fireplace. The server was knowledgeable and very pleasant. She knew the particulars on the many domestic, import and craft brews... More

We were looking for a place to eat while waiting for the Demi lovato concert to finish. Google showed this pub. The waitress. Alissa was fantastic. She did a great job, was funny and put up with the ones in our party who couldn't make up their mind. It was a great meal (fish, turkey clubs) and great service. The... More

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
