We went for lunch and had a wonderful server named Sam. Sam was very knowledgable about celiac disease and gluten free menu items (my husband has celiac disease). She talked about not being able to guarantee against cross contamination. They have a delicious house made hummus. Instead of pretzels to dip, she brought my husband carrots and celery and his...

The food was good, but the service was s-l-o-w. Check your bill carefully, we were charged for a drink we didn't have. Our waitress took it off the bill straight away, but there was barely an apology.

The basic hamburger was quite good, but the fries seemed commercial and had no taste. The Chicken Pot Pie was lukewarm, thick chicken stew ladled into a soup bowl, upon which a pastry top was dropped. Quite tasteless. The Barley House 10 year pale ale was just OK. Next time in Concord, I'll find someplace else.

Stopped in at 5 pm on a Saturday night. Beat the wait crowd which hit around 6pm. Double digit burger prices but tasty combos including fries or coleslaw. Dissapointed that there is minimal Irish Faire on the menu. People were having a good time and our waitress was friendly and attentive. Would go back and try other menu selections.

If you are wondering where everyone is in Concord N H in the evening, they are probably mostly here. Short wait to be seated on a Wednesday night, friendly waitstaff and pleasant surroundings. Curry fish and chips was yum, yum, yum. The burger special with a shot of Knob Creek Rye and a craft beer was great. It was great... More

We came here with no reservation and with no warning they pulled together a table for about a dozen of us. It took them 2-3 minutes to prep the table, then they sent us an outstanding server in Emily. She broke up the check into a few batches and didn't make us feel bad about it...which is great because with... More

We called into this bar for a drink. The staff were very friendly. they had an excellent selection of beer. We didn't stay very long as we had only flown in that afternoon, but we would recommend it. They also serve food.

I am so happy for Trip Advisor and all the contributors as this is how I found this restaurant in Concord, NH! As I didn't have a reservation, it was quite a wait. The burgers were super juicy & delicious! The ambience was really, with tables well spaced out. Great place!!!

This is another place we consider one of our favorites. The meals are tasty and well presented. The wait staff is professional, warm and friendly. My favorites are the Mac and Cheese, veggie burger, and the spinach dip. The cocktails are well made and the beer list is varied. This is a hit with our friends as well.
