we visited during our day in Atlantic City because my husband worked there one summer many years ago... it is still owned by the same people who also own 2 pubs in Philadelphia and they are known for their charity work etc. The pub hasn't changed much over the years - the owner was there and... read more

The Irish Pub has an old world charm and is a landmark in Atlantic City. We sat in the outdoor patio which has a small bar and lots of tables and chairs with a couple of gazebos. Our waitress was very attentive and the appetizers were delicious. Drinks were reasonable. We were fortunate enough to meet the owner who was... More

My sister and I met a friend for dinner at the Irish Pub. My friend had never been there before. We all had delicious sandwiches and cold beers. The food was terrific and reasonably priced. The beer was cold and the service was excellent. I will defintiely go back there again.

We had been to the Irish Pub on other trips to AC & the service was good & the food was good & reasonably priced. On our last two visits they offered a Very limited menu. The service was poor. They need more wait staff. We had to go to the bar to get refills on our drinks because our... More

While in Atlantic City we found this pub and it was just okay, it reminds me of a dive bar. The service was adequate, the bar tender wasn't very friendly.

Went to the Irish Pub for lunch. The corned beef sandwich was very lean and not skimpy, as well as, the roast beef. Sufficient portions for lunch. Would go back again.

This historic old Irish Pub is open 24-7. We dropped in for a beer late on a Saturday evening and enjoyed the ambiance, our chatty bartender and the locals. Lots of interesting pictures of past patrons hang on the walls of the bar. It's just off the boardwalk. They will serve food at the bar as well, however, we did... More

Not only was the food bad but the reaction from the on call manager accused me of "doing this every where I go". A local drunk was allowed to talk loudly on his cell phone disturbing our meal. We will never return. I paid the bill and provided a $5.00 tip although this place did not deserve the $5.00 tip... More
