Had the buffalo chicken and fries along with a Guinness and it was awesome. Would go back for sure on a return visit.

This suited us as it was big enough to get a quiet booth and people watch. Service was hit and miss and the food ok (nachos were better than the entrees).

I've been here a few times and the food never quite does it for me. I think there are some other choices near by with better food. The bar, however, is large with plenty of seating around the bar area. A good place to go for a drink.

My wife and I had lunch at Kinsale recently. She had the Classic Reuben ($10.50), which she enjoyed. I had the Small Beef & Guinness Stew ($11.50) with Colcannon. The Colcannon was good but the beef in the stew was tough and really undercooked. The rest of the stew was decent. I had a nice pint of Guinness which almost... More

The outdoor seating is nice for a view of some buildings and the clocktower. The waitress did a fine job, although a bit slow, which was ok with us since we were waiting on a friend.

The food is great and varied. The Bar on tap is exceptional. The Service is always wonderful. This is a great place to go after work for a few drinks, catch a game on tv or on the weekend to watch a game. We have had so many laughs there. I recommend it.
