This restaurant has a lovely atmosphere, not too big and very friendly staff. As soon as we sat down we were offered water and as soon as we made our order we were given a bowl of different breads which was really lovely. The food was with us within 10 min and ranges from burger and chips to scallops and... More

Ate here for lunch as we spotted it not far from Macy's and were looking for a quick lunch. Seemed to be attached to a hotel-Comfort Inn I think ??? Nice light snack/quick lunch menu. Good service. Hit the mark!

Never too busy when we were there, friendly service. We were staying at the adjoining Comfort Inn and had breakfast at Brendan's each morning. I made a visit each evening to the bar to have one or two Michelob Ultra's my favourite beer, No longer available in the U.K :( We look forward our return visit

Not a traditional Irish Pub, but a terrific restaurant. Some Irish dishes ie. shepard's pie & fish and chips. However, a more varied selection that found in a Pub. Very comfortable setting and a very good wait staff. On a quiet evening had the opportunity to chat with the waitress that had recently arrived from Ireland. She made the dinner... More

The food was fantastic! The bar servers were warm, friendly, and new how to mix a great drink! The wait staff was a little slow-but the food was worth the wait. The value was well worth it too.

This place was virtually right across the street from our hotel. I remembered reading good reviews here on Trip Advisor so we decided to give it a try on our last night in town. There is a small bar area up front and we decided to sit at a small table there right near the window. It is kind of... More
