When you walk in, the building doesn't shout "pub" but don't let that scare you off. These people have pub in their hearts. Excellent selection of beers & ales whiskies, etc. and the food is very good, I have had the BEST Calamari (yes, calamari) there, better than at seafood restaurants in SF or Monterey. Banger sandwich is excellent and... More

Arrived at the pub with a date and was excited for a nice evening and good food! Seated our selves and waited and waited and waited. People were being helped all around us, but not one of the 5 waitresses there, so much as acknowledge us. Not a hello, can I take a drink order or even a smile. A... More

I walked in at lunch and was able to find a seat at the bar immediately, which was great because it was St. Patrick's Day. I had to wait a bit for the bartender to acknowledge me, but once he did the service was very good. The cornbeef was very tender and tasty, but there was too much cabbage &... More

This place is overall a great place to eat. I see the owner on a regular basis getting fresh ingredients for his menu at the grocery store. (unique thing to know- nothing is ever frozen, only cooked fresh). I have to admit i am a sucker for their shepards pie. Its pretty amazing. Their fish and chips is also great... More

I had lunch today at The Claddagh and came away very impressed - and very full. Large comfortable area - a bit large for a real pub "feel" but was nevertheless tastefully decorated. Large portions, very reasonably priced and varied menu makes this place a winner and "the owner's husband", Mike, stopped by several times to check on things. Great,... More

When I go into a place that has the word "pub" in its name, I guess I must admit I am disappointed to go in and discover that the inside looks like it could have been a dollar store turned into a restaurant. I was really hungry for corned beef and cabbage but I didn't care for it. I had... More

I think this could be a bar that serves food, but we think it is a restaurant that has a bar. Excellent pub grub with a British/Irish bent. Not intended to be a gourmet hangout. Have a Guiness & bangers & mash, or maybe an IPA with Tikka Masala. Maybe a burger & a Coke. Yeah, they even have salads... More
