Great Food

I love sitting by the fireplace on a cold winter day. The food is great I especially love the Irish BLT and the curry fries! The service is always great and the beers cold. You really can't beat the times for a simple lunch or dinner with friends and family. Never a bad meal or a bad time here.

Nice people and good service. I recommend the pretzel bites. The cream of vegetable soup was ok, needed more taste. The reuben sandwich was pretty good. The fish tacos pretty non-seasoned and non-taste. Guinness was not bad or good. Need more creativity and originality. Kick it up three notches...

I recently decided to eat here with family after a visit to the zoo. I'm glad we did. The food was great and the service was quick and friendly. Everything we ordered turned out to be very good. It get's pretty busy, so try and arrive early. I'll be sure to return here again.

Always good food here. The Friday fish fry is great and the fries can't be beat. Good Shepard's Pie and other standard favorites.

We started going to Irish Times when it first opened back in 1991. At that time it had a real pub feel with live music on Sunday evenings. Three Men in Kilts and Bud Kelly were regulars back then. After a while it became noisy and obnoxious with a mediocre band and a lot of over served twenty-somethings sitting st... More
