Corned Beef Sandwich was So-So

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

Stopped by for a quick drink after dinner. Very very slow service our waitress was also the bartender! We were brought our drinks 2 or 3 at a time. When we finally got everything we had mistakes in our order. The waitress was confused by us telling her it was wrong and attempted To argue. We finally asked for the... More

My friend and I wandered in last Saturday night, after finding standing room only at our first choice. It ended up being a happy coincidence, as we had a great time. They weren't really croweded, but Steve, the guitar player made the night. A fun place with a friendly crowd and an entertaining guitar player.

The Blarney Stone lost my business tonight and I'll never go back. It was about 9PM tonight, Wednesday...about 4 people in the place. I entered alone, well dressed and completely sober. The older, smallish, Hispanic Bartender asked me for my ID. I showed it to her but, she asked me to take it out of my wallet. I said I... More

Not much of an Irish feel here. Loud live rock and sometimes blues bands. There are lots of other bars and pubs nearby that are more fun.
