“Good Pub Atmosphere Food Fair”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

Stopped in for a light lunch, since this was a holiday weekend the place was packed and noisy. Lots of people in the bar watching FIFA. However, we only had to wait about 20 min for a table in the bar area. We probably would have been happier in one of the other dinning areas due to the noise. Our waitress Daniela was very polite and gave us good service. We both had a cup of French Onion Soup which was very good with a sandwich, I had Grace's Rueben which was just average, my spouse had the BLT which was good. Parking can also be a problem as the Pub is located on the Main Street in Ruidoso. There is a public parking lot about two blocks away on a side street, but you might have to wait for someone to leave. We were lucky and found a spot after only one pass through. We will give this place another chance on a quieter weekend.

The atmosphere was Irish P

“Great Irish Pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

The bar itself has a great atmosphere. Has a nice patio area and a lot of room inside the bar. The drinks are good but a little pricey. The staff however are always nice.

“Nice Outdoor Dining”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

They offer a Bloody Mary Bar for Brunch on the weekends, which we did. It was very good and reasonable priced. The food was ok, we had the fish and chips. Enjoyed the cool weather eating on the patio.

“Good Atmosphere and So So Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I enjoy Irish pubs and gave this place a try. It has a rather fancy and festive Irish appearance with a nice bar. Enjoyable albeit untraditional Irish music plays in the background. Our young server was polite and friendly but did not seem very experienced. I ordered bangers and mash. This dish was served at too low a temperature. The Irish sausages themselves were ok but the mashed potatoes and cabbage lacked flavor and the grilled tomatoes were not cooked properly. I suppose there are few Irish cooks in New Mexico so I was not too disappointed.

“Best Irish Pub in the Sacramentos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We decided to try something new this time when we went to Ruidoso and are glad we did. Food and service were good. The menu has a large variety of dishes. Prices are very reasonable. We'll definitely return.
