Upon visiting Opelika for a Bridal Show we utilized trip advisor as well had been told by Marriott Grand National to try Irish Bred Pub. Glad we did! This place was awesome!

We were travelling back roads on our way to Atlanta, and we asked some locals for a recommendation for lunch. They immediately recommended the Irish Bred Pub. We knew we were going to be happy when it was difficult to find a parking place--this was definitely a popular place! The staff made us feel like we were regulars. The food... More

Enjoyed an incredibly icy cold glass of Harp lager that took me straight back to Killarney.. It accompanied the standard fish and chips dinner. Huge filet of fish was crunchy on the outside, moist on the inside and absolutely fabulous. Service was friendly and place was full on a Wednesday night.

My wife and I have made a Tuesday tradition (when weather permits) to eat outside at the Irish Pub. We tend to share a meal and have not been disappointed every time we have gone. We usually have the same waitress who is very friendly and prompt. We enjoy their burgers (which Tuesday is their burger special), we've had their... More

This is one of my favorite places in the whole world to hang out. The food is awesome. Sunday brunch is the best anywhere. Great atmosphere...just what you expect from a top notch Irish Pub. It's is an institution in our city. A must place visit for everyone.

Very good staff, excellent food, and an outstanding ambiance every time we visit, as often as twice / week when in town. Cherry(??) does a tremendous job managing the facility and socializing with the customers as time permits. Everyone is always in good spirits (and the good spirits are usually in us as well). Have spent time at the Bred... More

Good Irish standards...fish and chips, Guinness stew, and several other non-Irish dishes. I had a blackened salmon with vegetables which was very good. Guinness and most other well known Irish beers and whisky's of course and a good selection of local craft beers as well.

We were here for Sunday brunch. The decor is a traditional dark wood Irish Pub; very casual. They do offer outside seating. The menu choices are okay. We did like the egg. Skillets and pancakes. The food quality is good and satisfactory. It is certainly a solid choice to have a casual quality breakfast. It just isn't outstanding. The waitress... More
