Eating Irish.

It was different. My wife and I went for dinner. There is no parking lot so you have to find a spot on the street. The food was good and the Beer was cold. It tends to get very loud in the evening. If you want a quiet dinner then do not go late.

Excellent food, cold beer, but the menu on this site is VERY outdated so don't rely your picks on it. Otherwise, highly recommended

We have been to this bar many times since it opened, but the past two times were a disappointment. Between inexperienced waitstaff trying to take our orders and chefs in the kitchen obviously not knowing what they are doing, we may not return. At our last visit, our party of five waited about 45 minutes for the food to arrive... More

We were searching for a place to eat and happened upon this pub. We were greatly surprised, expecting burgers and pub grub we found authentic Irish fare. The Colcannon and Bangers and Mash are the best this side of Belfast! The bathroom on the main floor, however, was a bit rough.

It's a pub, and the food is pretty good for a pub. They probably try to serve a few more items than necessary. They, of course, fry a lot. Good atmosphere. My first time to try colcannon. It was heavy, but it was delicious for someone who loves garlic and corned beef as I do.

Waitresses were fine, but cook staff was totally unorganized and unprepared. Had to wait over an hour to start courses. Chowder was hot but corn and potatoes were served cold. Finally got steamers, but they were cold and we were given two servings for five people. Took 3 hours to be served 3 lobsters. No manager on site. Finally was... More

The Harp and Dragon is my favorite spot for a bite to eat after a night out to the theater. My favorite sandwich is the Galway, and I love the Blarney Stones! The atmosphere is similar to a Irish pub.

Harp & Dragon is a friendly, cut epub I'd be glad to frequent. I came here for dinner and drinks after hearing about it from friend who lived in the town, and I'm glad I did. They have a pretty good beer selection and their food menu was also unique. Nt every pub you visit has good drinks AND food,... More
