Great Reuben Sandwich was Killer

Got into to town a little late and needed a bite, found Erin's on TripAdvisor and BAM there it was "The Reuben". The Corned Beef was awesome. For a minute I though I was at a NYC deli, very well put together sandwich. I know all this fuss over a sandwich, right but it was a great sandwich... read more

I really like the atmosphere at Erin's. I came on Friday for the all you can eat fish fry and we weren't disappointed it was a bit pricier than most places 15.00 a person but it was prepared nice and came with a side dish. The service was great as usual. I like the assortment of beers on tap to... More

This was our second trip to Erin's...there won't be a third. This time even the service was horrible. Our waitress told us she had a party of 30 in another section, rushed through taking our orders and then disappeared. After waiting 45 minutes we asked to have the food checked on, but was told it wasn't ready. After an hour,... More

My Dad and I came to this restaurant after checking in to a nearby hotel. The weather was lousy so we wanted to stay close by the hotel and avoid driving any further than we had to. When we pulled up, there was an older gentleman (who we later figured was the manager or owner) who was very busy shoveling... More

First of all, I love the decor, rich deep colors, beautiful bar, and the booths were huge, comfortable and private. The host was a little...blank, didn't get a warm hello, but was taken care of well enough (maybe it was one of those days), but it is preferable to be greeted with a smile. Server was good, did not hover,... More

I have eaten at this establishment several times, and although the food is usually fine, service is almost always suspect as well as meal timing. When you are seated you are always hurried to order, fine but once I order can't we slow down some. My wife and I ordered an appetizer and a bowl of soup and a meal.... More

I was traveling for business and found Erin's Snug the first night. I ended up eating 4 meals there. The atmosphere is indeed "snug". Multiple fireplaces (inside and out), friendly bartenders who know their stuff, and just an overall great experience. Everything you would hope for from an Irish pub and more. I highly recommend the filet and the Shepherd's... More

Had dinner and drinks here with colleagues. Large variety of Irish beers and great menu of specialty pulls; enjoyed the Black Cow, Guiness over Spotted Cow. They have a large dinner menu and of the seven of us, I heard nothing but good things about the food. The building itself is worth a tour as it is decorated great.

I ran into this restaurant five minutes before they were closing the kitchen and they took my order anyway. It's a great looking pub and the food was good. I happen to be there in Dec. but I bet it's fun there in the summer because they had a nice courtyard with a big fire pit. It was even lit... More

We had seven couples out for a night of fun. A few of us arrived early to have a couple drinks. A couple of us arrived about 3:30 on a friday night and it was not busy at all. Ordered a drink and talked. Others arrived and ordered drinks. The bartenders are not the quickest but ok. We sat down... More
