Wow! Experienced Winterdine here and the food was superb. We started off with a carrot soup, followed by a beef tenderloin entree and then sticky date pudding for dessert. All for $38 - exceptional meal for a great deal!

If you like oysters, get yourself to the Claddagh Oyster House. The atmosphere is cozy and there's a pub upstairs. The servers are knowledgeable and I enjoyed a platter of different oysters from mild to sweet to briny. Recommend!
