Ended up staying for a few and chatting with the staff who were either legitimately Irish or very good actors.

We had a late lunch at the Blarney Stone Pub last Monday. We found metered street parking around the corner. I ordered a couple Guinness drafts and a coke for my gf, and we both had a Blarney Stone Burger. Mine was medium rare with a side salad, and my gf's was medium well with french fries. I enjoyed my...

We went there for St. Patrick's Day and had to have a green beer with a corned beef sandwich. Well, it wasn't like NYC where the Pubs gave you a pile high sandwich of corned beef. We were disappointed that we didn't get a lot of beef on our sandwich. It's a typical pub.

My wife and I sat down at 3:30 on a Thursday afternoon. We noticed some trash on the patio and tables that were not cleaned. There was one other party on the patio. We waited 15 minutes for a server while the host smoked 2 cigarettes 10 feet away from us. We left.

We didn't eat here but this review is based on their beer selection. Not a big selection but some interesting offerings. A couple different IPAs and other selections that I had never heard of. Worth a shot to try their beer. My wife said the house wine was very good as well. Sorry I cannot be of help for the... More

Was out walking and stopped in for a beverage! Great place! It was rocking at 4:30 pm! Fire fighters drinking car bombs! Another group doing shots... Service was great and the beer was cold! Go check it out!

The food is outstanding. Everything I had on the menu was great. The short ribs is to die for. The taste of Red Tolley beer will take you into another zone.

We visited the Blarney Stone Irish Pub on Sunday morning, September 21 for breakfast. We had patronized the establishment on the previous evening and were pleased, so we came back. SIX people at our table, and we were pretty much alone in the place around 8am, so we got some devoted attention. Very good breakfast. Good time, good value and... More
