Good service as the fellows come from behind the bar to check on how your doing on a regular basis. Hit or miss on the food as some of it previously frozen like a lot of places. Prime Rib is ok. Bathrooms are routinely foul.

Not what I expected. More your "friendly" bar. We had entered thinking FOOD ! Family fair restaurant and all. Not the case. More your local gathering / watering hole. That's not a bad thing, as I said just not what we expected. We did order off the menu. Our food was good and the gentleman was very nice. It's a... More

This was my 2nd visit to this location. The first time I only had a couple of beers with coworkers. On this visit, I arrived at about 12:45 for lunch. There were only a few customers in the place. I ordered a bacon cheeseburger, cooked medium. It came out raw on the inside. Not rare, raw. I suspect a frozen... More

We went there for our 25th anniversary, ordered the ribeye. It was the best steak I've had in years. Chain places can't compete with this, no way. The steak was half the size of my plate and at least an inch thick and PERFECTLY cooked to medium well. The sides were delicious. the appetizers were good but not near as... More

When I told our waiter (and I used that term loosely because we had to flag him down everytime... More

I have been going into Paddy's for a multitude of years and really do not understand the reviews here. One, the entire family has basically served, or is currently serving in the Marine Corps. Two, the place is full of active, former and retired Marines, most of which are higher ranking. There is no way they would abuse a Marine,... More

This place is more of a loud bar then a restaurant. We made the mistake of going for dinner and had to sit and listen to loud, terrible Karaoke. It took a long time for our food to come out, even though the majority of the crowd was only their for drinks at the bar, and the food tasted like... More

I was called out as a homosexual when I'm not even close. The owner came up to me and my friends and called me gay when I was not. The bartender took all of our drinks and threw them in the garbage as soon as he heard the word "gay." This place is intolerant, militant, and violent. Avoid at all... More

I was dining at Paddy's and observed some young men who appeared to be home on leave. I later found out he was wounded in the war in Afghanistan. He was defenseless and then I observed another young fella who later I found out to be the owner's nephew try and pick a fight with the young Marine who was... More

We had a large group of people and I was looking for a "local" restaurant instead of a "chain". Paddy's was able to make room for us in a separate room. This was great because the term "steakhouse" is applied loosely here! This is really just a big bar that serves the locals and the local marine base. The food... More
