It is a neat and clean place. In the evening there are activities for those that are keeping track of pop culture. But if you are stopping by for food or a drink other than a draft beer you are in the wrong place. Service at the bar was quick but at a table it took work to be noticed.... More

Arrived at 530 on a Friday evening for dinner on the rooftop patio. Waitress continued to look at my husband and I and ignore us. After 20 minutes we went to the bar and ordered drinks. My diet cola was seltza. 30 minutes into our visit we again went to the bartender and ordered our food as the waitress was... More

The new open-air patio is nice but the service leaves much to be desired. At one point there was one bartender for 25 people - and it was slow . This nice area does not currently take debit or charge cards but does not inform customers of that until the tab is due. And, worse, Connecticut has a no-smoking policy... More

We've been here as a couple and with friends. It's always a good time! The food is delicious! We've tried the authentic bangers and mash, other entrees, sandwiches, fries, salads, and appetizers! All of it is encellent. The draft beer choices are plentiful if you enjoy beer. They also have a full bar! The waitstaff is friendly and generally attentive... More

From the moment we walked in we knew we'd be having the fish & chips. The place smelled great! All you can eat, $10. Great batter fried fish and peppered french fries. Cold beer.

Like the review by USA, this place could be great. The beer is is very good, and the food interesting. Our companions had meat loaf, the serving was large and easily split. We had a Reuben and a burger. The Reuben was very good, the burger average. The H and D fries very good, maybe the best part of the... More

Service was terrible. The place smells like sewage. It is a fake Irish bar. Takes forever to get food even when it isn't busy. Tried to give this place a few chances but every time I feel like I have wasted my money and left aggravated. Don't bother.

This place has everything going for it, location, atmosphere, it is busy -- but the service is so painfully slow and the workers do not seem to care. It is frustrating to have a mediocre to poor experience in a place that you want to have fun and enjoy. The food was good and the beer selection is good, however... More

Harp & Dragon is a very Irish atmosphere. They have many different beers on tap and the decor is very nice. The bartenders are great. Their food is expensive but pretty decent.

Stopped in for a snack; had an excellent corned beef sandwich (the marble rye bread is amazing). However, it was happy hour, and the place had a TV running videos along with blaring overhead music. Too loud to even talk to the person next to you. Probably would not go back.
