Always good, sometimes slow

Our extended family has been here several times over the years. The food is always good and they are great at accommodating a fairly large group. Sometimes service can be a bit slow, but we aren't usually in a rush and are prepared for it. They have an excellent gluten free menu and now also have... read more

Stopped in after work for a drink. It was a professionals crowd of people from their late 20's to 60's +. This is a comfortable Irish pub. Bartenders are friendly serving appetizers and meals at the bar. There is outside seating in addition to eating inside. A fun place to stop for drinks or food.

The appetizer of Ruben cannonball fritters was a good choice. Unusual and delicious. The blackened Salmon special was good but a pit dry. The Shepard Pie was excellent and the Fish Tacos, OK. The service was good. Overall mixed opinions from our group but overall good. From other reviews I expected more but this is a restaurant I would try... More

This was our first visit to Kitty Hoynes. We chose it because we wanted to try something new, local, and enjoy Irish food. We were greeted by a wonderful hostess who gave us a choice in seating. We picked a table outside because it was a pleasant evening. We explained we spent the day traveling and were tired; the hostess... More

Whether at the bar or a table, food is great and staff is very nice. Great feel with Old Irish bones. Across from the Courtyard, frequent often on business trips.

I enjoyed sitting outside on the sidewalk, drinking beer and people watching. The atmosphere is casual and unhurried. I enjoyed the Reuben sandwich that I ordered. I would definitely go back.

We visited with local relatives. This is one of their favorite pub. We had dinner. We enjoyed our food and the Irish beer on tap. The bar décor was good. The room between the tables was good. The service was attentive without interrupting us too many times. We plan to go back.

Great spot to visit, bar is great, bartenders are somewhat friendly. The restaurant had a party in the dining room the evening of our visit, very noisy. Our order took almost an hour tobe served. I had steak medium rare and it was so well burnt done. I sent it back and it was corrected, to late meal ruined.

I'm not Irish, and this place is great. Bangers and mash, an awesome dish. Another time had the meatloaf as shown on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives - also a great dish. Get the beer sampler!
