Sub-par cover bands downstairs. Vacuous bar in the middle. Scummy club scene on the top. Yep, Irish Times has got everything that drags Worcester down.

Went before a Phish concert for drinks and a bite to eat. The food service was awful. They screwed up our order two times and had no clue what they were doing. The place wasn't that busy to warrant such bad service. The place had one hot female bartender who did an ok job behind the bar. Bathrooms up stairs... More

Just arrived in worcester and asked the bell boy for pub will good atmophere. He recommended the Irish Times and our party of 4 really enjoyed the atmosphere right from the minute we walked in. The food was delicious and the portions were generous.There was a match on the big screen and big croud but still comfortable to talk.

This spot sits in downtown Worcester, and is sitting in one of the scarier areas of the state. It is a two floor place and looks like it would be nice but with the bad parking and area, it is not worth the effort. The inside is a typical sports bar/Irish bar with a menu that is a scattered mess... More

I've never eaten there, but drinks are good, good service and usually a good live band - nightlife destination more so than a restaurant

I like this place, although it is somewhat difficult to find for people not familiar with Worcester. By design, all of the downtown streets are one-way opposite from your intended direction. Also, parking is catch as catch can. However, it is a nice bar, with a good beer selection, & the food, while basic bar fare with irish pretense, is... More
