Came here on a Friday afternoon around 3 pm. We were placed in the corner of an empty dining room. Despite the lack of customers, the service was painfully slow. We ended ordering only drinks and appetizers. The calamari was lukewarm. Very disappointing experience for what seemed like an interesting restaurant.

Amazing outside renovations. The outside bar and patio are excellent. Taps have a great variety, and selection of whiskeys is good. Maybe a few more of the new american Bourbons would be nice, but it is an Irish bar, so they have a excellent selection and good value. Food is above average, with a great variety. The bangers are ok,... More

Erin's Snug Irish Pub's website states, “At Erin's we strive to bring our guests the best service and memorable experience possible.” Well it was light years away from the “best” service and it was memorable, but for all the wrong reasons! Erin’s has a number of party rooms/areas and advertises as a place to come for birthdays, weddings, corporate events,... More

We came upon this restaurant and it was a joy. The food was great. I had the Reuben Mac and cheese... Fantastic. My husband had the fish and chips, the fish was especially good. Met the owner, Gerry, friendly and fun. We will definitely stop by again. I

Wonderful food, atmosphere, and service. Joe the waiter was great and his suggestion of the entree pie was right on.

Unattentive staff. Dry, bland, overpriced food. Place looked nice though, I guess this books cover should've stayed closed.

Went there on a Friday night. Most of us had the fish fry. The positives: nice decor, nice bathrooms. The negatives: rude manager (gave a ridiculous explanation for our delayed seating despite having a reservation; he should have just apologized), slow service, mediocre food, overpriced cheese curds.

We had a nice dinner here great. Both the Shepard's pie and Ruben were great! The Guinness cake was huge! The service was great as well.
