We arrived for a show at the Mercury a bit early so decided to grab a bite to eat at Cullen's. While I thought they could have enhanced their Irish menu options, we opted to quick American fare - cheesy artichoke dip and a bbq chicken salad. The food was extremely good, something I don't often say of pub food.... More

Take the kids, bring granny. There is something here for everybody. Can be very crowded on nights when there is a play next door at the Mercury Theater.

People who work here are actually from Ireland. A great neighborhood/family spot. Typical Irish bar food menu done well. It's cozy and welcoming.

I would say the burgers are pretty much average, as I tried the burger with avocado and blue cheese. It was a bit goppy, and hard to eat, and the meat kind of frozen patty like. So next time I would pass on the burger. My friend had a good salad, and enjoyed it. Service was friendly. We sat outside... More

My family and I have been going to Cullen's for years and for good reason. The food is consistently tasty, the wait staff is always friendly and attentive and the ambience is great whether you're accompanied by your wife and kids or visiting college buddies. I like to say that after your second visit, you'll feel like a regular. That... More

Went here to kill time before a show at the Mercury. We didn't eat but the guy at the bar next to me got a side of peas with his fish and chips, a good sign. It was nice to see a mix of families, young couples and singles, this looks like a local neighborhood place. Beer selection is ok,... More

What a bar! Great atmosphere, super food and service . Some great dishes, try the famous meatloaf or the hot wings! This place just can't be faulted. Great bar staff and waiters.

I dined here with my husband to relax and get a bite to eat before we continued our bike ride across the city. I was surprised at how low the prices were because the inside was so nice and regal looking. They have a lot of salads and sandwich options so I got the Reuben and was definotely satisfied with...
