Great Irish Food & Atmosphere

Been here several times. Very nice sports pub- flatscreen televisions every where you look, with all types of sports on. Nice bar area. Good ambience and atmosphere. On some nights, bands come in to play. Decent food, but very good burgers.

If their Wi-Fi actually worked I'd give a much better rating. Place really needs to get that updated. Everyone is on their phones these days and kids on all types of gaming systems.

Stopped here after an outdoor concert last Sunday, ordered the black bean burger, which was delish, served with coleslaw or fries. The server was very friendly and helpful, the pricing is good. Very nice ambience, highly recommend.

Went there for the first today with my Husband for dinner. Service was very slow, once food came out, server never asked us if all was well with our food. The fries were stale both regular and sweet potatoe fries. Never got my drink refilled until I was all finished eating my meal. Server was no where to be found.... More

I gave the 'New Cryan's' two tries and was disappointed both times. Let mme go through the list. Ambiance: Noisy, overly cooled down by AC, dark (anything to hide?) and, well, just bla. Service: ok, I guess. Nothing sticks out either way. Drinks: Standard fare, if somewhat pricy. Food: below average. Burgers are cooked to whatever temperature the cooks feels... More

I waffled between 3 and 4 stars for Willie McBrides. The atmosphere is convivial, typical Irish pub decor and live Irish music on Sundays. The food is nothing to rave about. It is fine...just fine. The upside is that the menu is so varied that pretty much everyone can find something to their liking. They will like their choice, but... More

Willie McBride's was a great place to stop for an appetizer or a meal and a Kilkenny when it first opened. Sadly, that is no longer the case. The food is absolutely horrible and there's been an obvious turnover in the kitchen and bar staff. They no longer serve Kilkenny and I had the first sour Guiness of my life... More

From the dimly lit interior, to the inattentive service, to the average food, there wasn't much to be impressed with. Seriously, turn up the lighting a little bit so I can read the menu. As far as the food goes... The fried green tomatoes were heavily battered and deep fried. The corned beef lacked flavor. And, the chicken pot pie... More

We found out about half price appetizers & wine by accident! There were 4 of us and we made a dinner out of 6 appetizers & a bottle of Chardonnay! The Willies calamari, potato pancakes, sweet chili wings & potstickers were outstanding! Service was fun & attentive!
