Great Irish Pub Fare

This place has the best corned beef and cabbage I've ever tasted. And their selection of beers and whiskeys are amazing also. Try the blackberry. It's a blend of Guinness and Berryweis.

A friend had a rehearsal dinner here. The drinks were great with a wide variety and the food was great.

I've been several times, so you know I like them. They offer better variety than most places and good food. I usually get the rueben, which is nicely overstuffed and delicious.

The location is convenient. There is quite a bit of wood on the walls and stage which gives it a nice atmosphere. I had buffalo chicken sandwich and it was good and it reminded me of Bennigan's. A good place before or after a show at the Paramount.

Enjoyed sandwiches and couple pints on a Sunday evening. The place was quiet but looked like it would be a great time with a band on stage. Everyone enjoyed their food. Started with chips that were seasoned perfectly, sweet potato bites, awesome. Four different sandwiches ordered and all were tasty. Our waiter, Jason, was very friendly and made some great... More

Love the food! We skip dinner and make appetizers our meal. Our personal favorites are the Irish Chips with a blue cheese dipping sauce, and Corned Beef Balls (corned beef and cream cheese, battered and fried). YUM! Large selection of bar beverages, nice atmosphere inside, and even better when the weather's nice and you can sit outside on the back... More

We had a delightful Irish dinner at Ballydoyle. It's an Irish pub with a huge beer list, a long list of Irish and Scotch whiskers and all sorts of cocktails. But we went for dinner. Sandwiches, burgers, salads, and Irish fare. I was quite satisfied with Shepherd's pie. Others had the Guinness beef stew, a Reuben sandwich (not exactly Irish),... More

The place is huge - a total pub atmosphere but the food is quality although a bit high priced. I had the fish and chips - huge piece of fried fish with fries and coleslaw - it was delish - beer selection very good - a cool place to just hang out!
