I went there, because I had fond memories of the Pizza Kitchen that used to be there before. I was so disappointed. The didn't feel like it had been updated since the 80s and the place honestly smelled strongly like a hospital. The Grinder was nothing special, but maybe I couldn't taste it because of the overwhelming smell. It's too... More

Been going there for years, the last few times it has not been up to par. Must depend who is working in the kitchen. May need a different supervisor watching the cooks. Should be same quality all the time..

Good atmosphere, server was very friendly and helpful. Husband had the Pepperoni Calzone, I had the Fettuccini ala Carbonara - VERY good! So much food, it fed us for 2 more meals. Reasonably priced. We'll be back.

I love Irene's! Great food!! I've always had it to go, can't comment on decor, atmosphere, waitstaff, etc. I love their salads! The antipasto salad is loaded with meats! House pasta is awesome also! Food is a bit pricey.

There were only two waitresses servicing the whole place and the place was pretty packed by locals on a Sunday morning. Once seated, it took up... More

Like another reviewer pointed out, they are a bit pricey (depending what you order), but other than that the food is pretty good. I usually get the meatball parm because you get one more meatball than spaghetti and meatballs and it's cheaper than spaghetti and meatballs. I would say the food is all around above average...not the best I've had... More
