5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Being very convenient down the street, we visit for the food, friendliness of the owners, Mr. & Mrs.Cawley. They greet patrons when it is their first or 50th trip to Cawley's with their Irish Brogue. Very clean, servers are excellent in manners; does not rush. The bar is separate from the dining area, not a huge dining area but very pleasant atmosphere. Large tv screens keeps you attentive until the meals arrive. Food is fresh cooked, menu is fairly priced, leaning toward their Irish heritage. A must to visit. Exceptional people. They also have a take-out/pick-up menu only.

“Love the owner!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

The bartenders only give attentive service when Mr. Cawley is on site! Would go there more..... If the owner is there because then I know I will receive great service.

“Best best best resturant...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2007

Best best best resturant around. The cheesesteaks are to die for and the fries.
The service is great, there is always a smile on the waitresses face.
