We have eaten, drank and danced here. Nice casual menu. More of a mixed crowd drinking bar/club on the weekend nights. Good for lunch. Sometimes more of a college crowd at night. But they behave. Good for this old fart checking the college cuties. lol.

We had the Scottish eggs for an appetizer and they were delicious. My husband had a corned beef sandwich, he said was very good and I had fish & chips. The fish was very tasty but a little soggy on the bottom. But all in all, it was a good lunch and I would go back.

After spending 17 plus years away, this bar has a great atmosphere after 10pm. Drinks were good and reasonably priced. 7

The food was horrible and this is after they have promoted a revamped menu. They would be better off pandering to the drinkers and offering only chips, pretzels and peanuts. When three people with three different orders just push their food around the plate and cannot get a decent bite from anything then that is bad. Our money and time... More

Nice little Irish spot to have a pint, a sandwich and good service! Was a perfect blend of all three during my visit. Family friendly within walking distance if downtown hot spots. Definitely recommend it!

It's been awhile, but friends and I had lunch there. The food was good, you could get a beer, and it had a fun atmosphere even at lunch. We had a toddler with us and it was fine.

This was our second trip here. I did not review last time but enjoyed it so thought I should review. Our server was very nice but a bit on the "low key" side. I had the Shepherd's pie which was good and my husband had a corned beef sandwich ( he enjoyed his also). Price wise... We each enjoyed two... More

I came here this past weekend twice and both times had horrible service from one specific bartender. My girlfriends and I went there for lunch and each got sangria and 2 of the 4 had hair in them. It sucked but it was already gone by the time they noticed so we let it go. Then we still went back... More

Well, Emerald Isle Nachos and background music by the Eagles might be stretching the theme a bit, but the Wild Rover has a credible Irish menu. We began with the soup of the day. My wife had tomato bisque and I had the Mock Turtle soup. My wife enjoyed hers and mine was excellent with just the right amount of... More

The beer selection was great, with a serviceable mix of Irish standbys and Michigan breweries available. The fish-n-chips was good – plus they had malt vinegar on the table. The shepherd’s pie was very good and well balanced with spices, meat and vegetables.
