Erin's Pub Fit the Bill, Hit the Spot!

I stopped at Erin's on a Saturday night after a long day at a tech conference. The restaurant (and Pub), came recommended online and also by hotel staff. As you might expect, Erin's was packed, but I wasn't interested in being the single guy at a table, so I headed to the bar. My only comment here... read more

After a long trip I craved comfort food, usually hard to find when you are in the road. This place hit the spot with Irish Sheppard's pie. Ground beef and lamb with pea&carrot light beef gravy topped with mashed potatoes mixed with cabbage. Don't knock it until you've tried it. They also had a Wisconsin version substituting mac&cheese for the... More

Don't even think about asking for a beer. I was at a retirement party there yesterday and asked the bartender what beer he recommended. His response was "We have 36 different beers, you will have to be more specific" with a put-out voice and look in his face. I thought a Pub would have beers they want customers to try.... More

Good sandwiches and pleasant bar. This place is Big! I had a pulled pork sandwich that was very good and others had of course the Rubin and some salads. All were well made and delicious. Good bar as well and nice wait stall.

A wonderful pub/restaurant with an Irish theme Ambience: the restaurant is large and can get a little loud. On my visit, a table full of ladies obviously on a celebratory outing made conversation three tables away difficult. If you are seeking intimate dining, this may not be for you. But if you want good Irish food combined with the feel... More

My husband and I had a delicious meal at Erin's. Knowledgable server helped me find gluten free options. So happy to find Magner's cider on tap. Definitely will be back to enjoy the "Paddy O" (patio) in warmer weather. Beautiful decor!

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... Enjoyed every... 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
