Fantastic service from servers that have been here for years. Quarters are a little cramped but add to the unique feel. Short menu, but enough selection for my taste. If you need 50 items to choose from, this might not be the place for you. Served at excellent temperature and a tasty meal. Had high expectations going in and they... More

We had a party of 36 on short notice which they accommodated without a hick-up. When Irene learned we were a vets group (reunion) appetizers were delivered on the house; thank you! And as we finished dinner were asked to gather outside for a group photo. Some of us had not paid yet but they told us to "go on... More

Our party of 5 had dinner at Irene's on a Monday evening. We made reservations several weeks in advance for 6:00 pm. On arrival we were greeted by name, and our table was ready for us. This restaurant has a one page menu, so there are not a lot of choices. But, it is a lot easier to chose and... More

Atmosphere was lacking as they crowd everyone in. Too loud to talk across the table. I had the duck and it was quite tasty, also there was a soft shelled crab appy that was great. We waited maybe 45 mins to get in and it was good, but not sure it was worth the wait.

Irene's can have long waiting hours but it's definetely worth it. While you wait, you can listen to good piano music, so it's not bad at all. The service is great and the food... amazing!

We made a reservation (a must) and had to wait 20 minutes before we were seated on a Wednesday evening. The rooms are packed tight with tables so there is no ambiance and the noise level is high. Not a place for a romantic dinner to say the least but the food and service is excellent. Mike M. our waiter... More

Went to Irene's based on Trip Advisor ranking and wasn't disappointed. My score would actually be 4.5 stars as I would rank this place a little lower than Br. B's Bistro. Very busy - we made a reservation for 5:30 and there was a lineup outside the door when we arrived. Place filled immediately on opening and I expected service... More
