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

The positives first - Atmosphere, location and price. Great decor, loved the variety of seating from low tops, high tops, bar seating and more. The pub is divided into at least four sections, very roomy and great for couples or groups. The location isn't prime if you're visiting the city center, a college student or anyone unfamiliar with Madison's far... More

We stopped for lunch today on our first visit to Erin's. We were not hungry enough for a full lunch so we both had sandwiches. My wife had the salmon and I had the prime rib sandwich. Both were good; we split an order of fries and had more than enough to eat. Too bad it was noon because they... More

Erin's is on the far northeast side in the AmFam corporate wasteland, but it's worth the drive for the beer, food, and ambiance. It's a large, comfortable place with a main dining room and several smaller "snugs" for big and smail parties. We usually sit by the large fireplace. The menu features Irish specialties, like bangers and mash -- basically... More

Nice place. The bar have some little room for private party. The cooking of my steak was exactly like I order it (rare), however the vegetable (with my steak) was ok. The finger food was good. Many choice of draft beer. Definitely a perfect place for a drink... or two

Food was good, wait staff friendly, average prices around $20. Had dinner with a colleague while staying nearby. Was a bit trendy in price for the food. The bar was fun though!
