“Catfish worth coming back for”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

I tried the catfish: really crisp and not greasy at all! My wife's salmon was so-so. I'll have to keep looking for good hushpuppies and blackberry cobbler (big disappointments here). Mac & Cheese side was very cheesy, but fried okra was big and tough.

Loved the terrace -- great gardening by the owner, who obviously loves his plants! Watch out for "Poker Night" unless you REALLY like poker, or can eat outside (and sit far from the smokers).

“Extremely average food great setting”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

Food is very very mediocre. Had steak and 40% of it was fat and over seasoned. Potato chip chicken was solid but sides tasted like they were canned or out of the box. Good setting on the patio. Would come here for drinks only

“One of our favorite family restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Awesome. We were at Tierney's grand opening a few years ago and consistently return for the excellent food and service. Highly recommend their meatloaf, potato chip chicken and Sunday brunch. We've tried about everything on the menu and haven't found anything that wasn't hot and delicious. History of the buildng make the experience even more interesting.

We immediately signed up for Tierney's email list and weekly get incredible offers including special events like their Yappy Hour when guests can bring a dog (free doggie meal on the patio). Party time for special holidays during the year. Not formal, so a great place to drop in after a rough day shopping or at the office.

“Fine local joint, better than the bar suggests”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

There are bars with restaurants and restaurants with bars. This has a popular bar, but the restaurant takes it into the latter category. Good salads, fine breakfasts, amazing potato-chip chicken.

“Nasty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Will not be back. The floors, table and chairs were filthy. Ordered pinto beans that were far-undercooked and had to ask for cornbread, only to receive one small muffin. The cornbread tasted like cold & hardened cement. Will never try this place again. Even the waitstaff appear dirty.
