“Attentive Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

This restaurant is located in the Fullerton Marriott and we have breakfast here on weekends (when concierge lounge is closed) while staying at the hotel. All of the staff members we have encountered at breakfast have been attentive. Javier is a fabulous waiter - He always has a warm smile and greeting, and even remembers our beverage selections (and we don't drink coffee and oj)! We always have the buffet at breakfast. Due to the layout of the restaurant, food is set up in several different locations. There's a variety of fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, and pastries, as well as scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and breakfast potatoes. You can have omelets, and eggs, cooked to order. They also have waffles. We've never been disappointed in the breakfast, although we would prefer if the potatoes did not have onions and peppers in them!

On several occasions I've ordered a salad to go, to take out to the pool. They don't have a green salad without chicken/salmon on the menu, but I've never had a problem getting one. The salads have been tasty and a good serving size, at a reasonable price. We've also ordered drinks at the bar a few times, and prices are quite reasonable.

Again, staff, service, and food have all been top-notched!

“No happy hour, few clean tables and lack of Irish/UK beers”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

They style this place like an "authentic Irish pub" (presumably built by the Authentic Irish Pub company of Chicago). The authentic-looking walls promise beers like Smithwyck's...which are not available at this "pub" (which is really just the hoitel restaurant for the Fullerton Marriott). Place was nearly empty and it was obvious why - at 5 pm there was no happy hour, few customers and lots of tables that were not clean. Even if staying there I would not go back.

“eh”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

I was really looking forward to a great beer selection and some Irish food options. They only had 5 beers on draft, miller light, bud light, etc. As far as food, they offered spinach dip, chicken fingers, and flat bread pizzas. I've yet to travel to Ireland, but I doubt this is what they would serve at a pub. We ended up walking across the street for better options.
