Great Irish Pub

I try to visit Galway Pub every time I am in Ocean Shores. It is a very friendly place with good food. I had an Irish kind of stew that was absolutely delicious. The wait staff is always very knowledgeable about the menu and in offering suggestions. Although I am not a big beer drinker, I know they... read more

Every time that we are in town we have a meal here. I love the free live music. The place is huge so they always have room. Service is always good. Drinks are delicious and prices are fair.

It may make me a beer lover yet! Great service here with a perfect Irish theme with Celtic music, Guinness and all kinds of items adoring the place. Very good choice for a beer with your lass.

A great atmosphere, and the food was o.k. Nothing to write home about, but I guess that's what Irish food is. The service was great, and the staff was friendly and attentive. But I must say, that the finished product didn't meet the fantastic description of the dish.

My dining companion is used to eating food that is fresh, thoughtfully prepared, and typically organic, and she was terribly disappointed. I am less picky, especially when traveling, and found the food to be adequate. They had the wine listed by varietal, but not the specific label. While I appreciate that they may be changing what's on the wine list,... More

I ordered what was supposed to be an irish sausage special, and I didn't mind paying the price for good Irish quisine, but it tasted and looked exactly like the sausage I buy at the corner grocery. My wife ordered the house salad, and it came in a glass dish that looked like a small fingerbowl. The Irish soda bread... More

What could be better than a pint of Guinness and a hot corned beef and cheese sandwich on soda bread, served with the lilt if Irish jigs being played as we enjoyed. Lovely gift shop to tour through before or after dining.

I got the blarney burger my girlfriend got the Guinness Sheppards Pie everything was delicious our server was keeping the beers coming. The live entertainment had the place clapping... More
