The Field is a unique Irish pub that reeks of old Ireland. The moment you step inside, you feel as though you've stumbled upon a set for an Irish film. But you don't have to be Irish to appreciate what the pub has to offer. For dinner my wife ordered the Halibut fish and chips, which she said was the... More

I very rarely get a pint of Kilkenny on this side of the Atlantic but they did not disappoint. Typical little Irish pub with a great Irish sampler and lively music. Been here on a previous trip but this time was much better than the last time. Maybe more Kilkenny's :)

Inside or outside dining, a menu reflecting the culture, outstanding fish and chips that were not at all greasy (choose the halibut), and a server intent on making our experience a good one! Dog friendly as are many spots in the city.

First off, thanks for bringing this to our attention. Nobody wants to see bugs in a place where food is being served, least of all the owners. We'll absolutely make an effort to keep that from happening again. That aside, it's great to know that you and your family enjoyed your meals here, and I hope you'll come back again... More
