I like this place.
I am sorry to see bad reviews of this place, I have had nothing but a positive experience. Here are some things to keep in mind. The pictures on Yelp make this place look like a dark pool hall. The energy and vibe of this place can change by the hour. This establishment is operated by Ocean Properties who also operates the Marriott owned Wentworth by the Sea. Also, look at its location. What does all this mean? Well, here goes: Most of the time when I go here, it is when the majority of the employees of the surrounding companies (300+) are done for the day. I find Paddy's to have an almost Cheers like atmosphere with the people that work in this small community (including The157th Air Refueling Wing, ANG) now drinking and eating at Paddy's. I have never had bad service here. Period. When I had a mistake in my order, it was fixed immediately . The food here is very good standard pub fare. I never had the feeling that they were trying to be something they are not.
As for the interior lighting, I find it cozy in the Winter, but a little too dark in the Summer, BUT.....Hey! They have a very nice outside bar and patio with live music! The pool tables are mostly used for a friendly game and/or a league once in a while. Again, I realized that Paddy's is a vibrant community (not clique) of local professionals enjoying a little rest and relaxation. So, get to know the friendly Bartenders, grab a seat, order a drink and experience this great little town within a town! Oh...the Sheppard's Pie & Blueberry Pie are very good.
