We visited here during the evening whilst staying at the hotel palomar just round the corner during our 19 day road trip from Miami to LA. Seamus's does a reasonable impersonation of the worldwide Irish Pub, although theres nothing particular Irish about it, and like many places trys a little too hard with the fake irish bar decorations. Regardless it... More

I have been in the bar a number of times and recently again during October of 2014. I live in the area and pass by the place frequently. I usually go in when I have visitors who need a little toddy. I have never heard Irish music playing in the place. Never, ever. Rock and roll, etc is what they... More

Food was just OK, nothing special. It has "Irish pub" decor, but is really more of a sports bar, noisy.

On entering, it smells of stale cigarette smoke even though there's not an ashtray in sight. The beer selection is fine but the food leaves a lot to be desired. I had the "Chips and Gravy" which was adequate (but the gravy was from a packet methinks) followed by the "Steak & Mushroom Pie". It didn't look appetizing: very soggy,... More

It is fairly small, and QUITE noisey. It is NOT the place for a romantic dinner. BUT. The food and Spirits are great. The Shepherds pie was delicious as was the Corned Beef and Cabbage. The Irish Whiskey cake was a bit much, though. Good, fun place.

I visited this bar during another of Phoenix's very hot days and the cool temperature was a relief for someone not used to the temperatures. The member of bar staff was friendly and engaging throughout, he made me feel welcome and was conversational and warm. Although I visited during a period when offers were on the prices in general seemed... More

I've been back 2 times with an excellent experience both times. On the first visit, which was with a business associate, the server patiently waited for our orders while we perused the menu. Made a specific, non-menu, drink order which came back perfectly. She suggested the steak and Guiness boxty, a beefy/mushroomy/rich stew with a slab of ultra smooth mashed... More

Seamus is my go-to place in downtown phoenix. Have never had a bad time! Bartenders take good care of you if you are polite and patient :)

My husband and I visited the Pub on a trip to Phoenix over Thanksgiving weekend. Not much open downtown, but the Pub was. Very tasty Irish Stew, and my husband thoroughly enjoyed his scotch flight. Good service, clean, very enjoyable.
