“"The real deal"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

This place is a real Irish Pub that was built in Ireland and shipped to Woodlands, Texas. You can get there by foot or take the woodlands waterway boat right to the water front patio door. It has a water level patio and a water view upstairs area. We were met right away by a friendly host and was seated outside on the the canal. The view was awesome watching the birds,people and the tour boat cruise by. Our waitress was Ashley who handled our order and several special requests without missing a step and always with a smile. The cedar plank salmon and authentic shepherds pie was outstanding. If you get a chance walk thru the pub and check out all the Irish history. This whole area is full of shopping,Restaurants,and activities. The Pub would have got an excellent but I have PET peeve about people bringing there dogs into a restaurant eating area(Patio) Also this area of town your allowed to smoke on the patios which forced us to give up a prime table. We would eat there again.

“Cozy pub with better-than-average food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Goose's Acre has a great location facing the Woodlands Waterway, but it has more to offer than the atmosphere. Good burgers, well prepared pub favorites, and excellent salads are among the solid choices on the broad, family-friendly menu.

“On the Water Authenic Gaelic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

This is an authentic pub on the inside, they have two levels and two levels of outdoor seating as well. Nice beer selection, I always go for a local brew. I have been for lunch and dinner have sat inside and out. The outdoor seating is directly on the water walk.

“First timers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

My wife and I enjoyed our meal very much. The fish and chips were great, taste and temperature
was perfect. My wife had the Shepherd's Pie and loved it. We would recommend and return. Our
server got everything just right. The reception when we came in could have been much better.
Overall very good.
