Great food, pleasant staff, clean kitchen.

The food is great! I often get the fish and chips but have had many other items from the menu, all of them really good. The Ruben sandwich is another favorite. No matter what you order, get a side of car bomb sauce! The beer selection isn't large but they rotate a few on tap so there is always at... read more

Like the appetizers and several of the entrees. Shepards pie and the Mollie Malone sandwich are both great items. Also like the goat cheese appetizers, but can't remember what they are called. Outdoor eating is fun when the weather cooperates. Have always had good service. Only complaint is that when there is a live band playing, it is very difficult... More

I didn't have an issue with service as some others have noted but it was not at all busy when I was there either (this is the State St location). The menu is pretty limited but the shepherd's pie was quite good as were the 2 beers I tried. I guess the owners must be soccer fans since someone else... More

Located by the side of river road just several blocks down the hill from campus, we love going to 9 Irish for flakey whitefish Fish and Chips, which comes with creamy coleslaw. There is an extensive menu ranging from traditional Irish fare like Shepard's pie to bar food like nachos, burgers or tasty soups and salads. The atmosphere is charming... More

Great food, atmosphere, and service! Thank you for an enjoyable evening! The bangers were out of this world! The soda bread I swear my Irish great grandmother made. The beef gravy on the mashed potatoes was a flashback memory from a family Sunday dinner. The wings were a big hit. I am just glad the boys did not eat the... More

I was very disappointed when I visited this restaurant for lunch 2/8/2015. The restaurant was not busy at all, yet no one ever took care of us after the hostess sat us at our table. Our party of five waited 15 minutes at our table, while making eye contact with the hostess on multiple occasions! She seemed too busy texting... More

Good, authentic menu. We went to the East side restaurant which isn't as cramped or crowded as the one by campus. Once you'been to the Irish Lion in Bloomington, you're spoiled, but you can get great lamb, whiskey steak, soda bread and cabbage soup - and potatoes! at the Brothers. Nice change of pace for "ethnic" food.

Food was below average to poor, serving team and bar staff lacked personality and attention. Decor is nice but furniture uncomfortable for long period.

I like this place! Never been in an Irish pub so can't really say if it's genuine, but it has that neighborhood feel. The food and service is good as well as reasonable prices.
