I am in savannah at least twice a year and I always find time to come here. Very very nice. The comedy and live Irish music is so much fun. Great food and wonderful service.

It is with a very saddened heart that I write such a poor review of Kevin Barry's Irish Pub as I spent A LOT of time here while in college. The service was beyond horrific!!

Staff was friendly, very dark inside. I had the Irish combo ( Irish stew & shepherd pie). Good flavor, stew was a bit fatty. Nice cold Smithwicks on tap. Well worth the stop on the river walk.

My wife and I recently stopped at this Irish bar on the River Street level of Savannah. It was my second visit, as I was also in the bar some 10 years ago. The bar is located in a building that appears to date from the 1700's (not sure in that regard), and having traveled to Ireland on 5 occasions... More

We had a quiet lunch here and the sandwich was good. Now we know the time to enjoy this place is in the evening when it is lively with music. If you like - don't stop on the first floor off River Street, but continue upstairs where you can sit on the porch with a river and sidewalk view, look... More

My wife and I stopped in here on a recent trip to Savannah to enjoy the Irish pub entertainment. Frank Edmonds(?) did not disappoint! He sang, told funny stories, took requests, and when coming back from a break stopped at every table to talk with customers and encourage requests.

I am pregnant so of course many food items don't sound appealing to me. However, I ordered the fried Tilapia with veggies and rice and it was amazing!!!
