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.

We stopped in here looking for dinner on a bitterly cold, snowy night. I had a salad and my husband had chili. The salad had quinoa and blue cheese (I cannot remember the name) which was a delicious combo. the menu said it had fuji apples but they substituted some sort of canned/stewed apples which were kinda gross. I understand... More

What a cheerful, warm friendly place to have lunch on a cold , dreary day. stopping in for a late lunch, the place was not crowded but the service was terribly slow. Wanting hot soup, i ordered the potato leek, which was lukewarm and bland, should have ordered the tomato basil, which was fantastic. the grilled romaine salad should have... More

One year ago, I really enjoyed my visit here. The food was good, the celtic music pleasant, the restaurant populated and lively. This time, all three of those factors was lacking. No music, no other customers, and the nachos I had for lunch was terrible. I have never experienced the liquid cheese spread used before on nachos, and hope I... More
