“Poor Excuse For Irish Food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Casey's is so close and convenient to our home it is sad that it is consistently so disappointing. As far as bars go, the libations are just fine; good Irish options and nice stiff drinks and a decent happy hour. But the food, in multiple attempts, has consistently been sub-par if not downright disgusting. Yesterday's brunch and their "Irish Breakfast" was so unappetizing and disappointing words fail me. I consistently feel that a decent Irish Pub is worth its weight in Leprechaun gold, but Casey's appears to simply cut corners left and right, seemingly having little to know pride in the food they are serving.

So if all you want are drinks, have at it, Casey's will do you right. But if you are looking for anything that even closely resembles authentic Irish food, find someplace else and quick. Casey's will do nothing short of disappoint in that arena.

“Not really an Irish Pub”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Huge disappointment here. We were expecting to taste some wonderful UK food when we saw that they were touting themselves as an Irish pub. The Fish and Chips meal had very thin pieces of fish (but pretty good batter) and French Fries (out of a bag). The Bangers and Mash meal had a decent onion gravy and tasty potatoes, but the sausages were not tasty at all. The Guinness was like most Guinness you get in the US – weak and tasteless. The various salads we saw that people had around us looked like fairly large portions, so maybe getting something other then their touted “Traditional Irish Specialties” would be good.

“2 visits in 3 days hit the spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

After a long day of travel, Casey's burger and fish and chips banished all thoughts of airport security lines. The 15 year old Glenlivet scotch probably helped also. They even did a kid's scoop ice cream with chocolate sauce for us upon request. Service was friendly and we returned for lunch 3 days later. A very good BLT was paired with some of the best lemonade to be found in a restaurant. An excellent and large tuna melt was paired with a glass of Avalanche, a local brew.

“Unexpected find - worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

Went to meet German speaking people who meet there once a month. It was great. Guinness and Kilarney on draft. Guiness was missing the shamrock on the froth, but I guess that's a rare find outside of Ireland. I had fish and chips and it was a generous portion and very tasty. Service was very attentive and quick. Nice place to hang out with friends!
