The bar service was pretty good and we took a table in the quiet room as a singer was just about to start. The food was very average, service was very slow. There were 2 waitresses working, well one of them was, not at all sure what the other was doing, when I asked the waitress who was serving us... More

I would highly recommend the baked pretzel bread. Also the half and half was good too. We went on a night when they had live music and that was good too.

We are of Irish background so always go to Kevin Barrys when in town for a few pints and good Irish Pub Music. Frank Emerson was in town and entertained us delightfully. He tells stories with the songs and has a great variety, Thanks Frank. Fun Place

We stopped here for lunch on Thanksgiving Day 2014. The blue cheese burgers and fries we ordered were awesome! The atmosphere was very welcoming and it was nice that we could choose anywhere we wanted in the entire building to sit. The upstairs room honoring our military was very interesting.

My wife and I spent a night out at Kevin Barry's and she very much enjoyed our time spent. She was raving on about the musician, Frank and quite honest I think she was a little flirty with the old gentleman. We bought one of his CDs and now my 9 year old daughter is ofter heard repeating "I'm Irish"... More

We were told to come here for a drink by a local. The downstairs was smelly and the upstairs wasn't that much better either. Only place we didn't get a rush of southern hospitality.

Daye A Thank you for stopping by Kevin Barry's Irish Pub, cited by ABC News as a Top 5 Irish Pub to visit.

If the food here is fresh, ours was not. Shepherds pie was piled high with bland boxed mashed potatoes, very little meat or veggies. Boring and un satisfying at best. Irish beef stew was canned. Tasted just like Campbell's, not in a good way. Bread was cold, dry and not fresh. What a disappointment.

After a day of touring the beauty of Savannah, we stumbled upon Kevin's Irish Pub on River Street for a late lunch. It was early so things were quiet. The view of the river from the upstairs patio was gorgeous. The choices for drinks were grand. The fresh sandwiches were just wonderful and the hot pretzels with beer cheese sauce... More
