Looking for a place to eat after a long day of training my coworkers and I went here. Walked in to be hit with the stench of cigarette smoke. We then asked to be seated outside. My coworker had noticed a pole inside with a wall of mirrors. Which I had missed because I was so focused on getting outside.... More

Steve N, Owner at Irish Bred Pub, responded to this review

We want everyone to feel comfortable when dining with us, Brigitta. However, we do not allow smoking inside and we do not have Cajun shrimp on the menu. This is probably a review for the Irish Bred Pub in West Point. We want to make sure your constructive feedback gets to the right people. Cheers! Steve, Owner More

Just had apps and beers. Only negative was the beer menu did not keep up with what was available on draft. Ok now the good news, friendly people, good food. Don't compare to Montgomery location, this one is hands down better.

It's great to see you were able to stop in, have a bite, and a few brews, Steve. We can go through some of our kegs pretty quickly, and we update the menu as often as possible. Thanks for your feedback and I hope you stop in again soon. Cheers! Steve, Owner More

We were a party of ten for my wife's 50th birthday. My daughter called numerous times in advance to let them know we had a large party and she came in three hours before we arrived to decorate. We were seated upstairs and it went downhill from there. After about 20 minutes, our server (who seemed nice) found us. Since... More

Have been several times, with friends and with family. Not fond of their Shepards Pie, if was all potatoes and not much filling. Not fond of their fried fish. It was bland. Their steak was decent, but not the best in town. Its a good place to have a drink...two bars.

We're glad you've found our place to be one you can frequent, but it's surprising to see some of our dishes don't hit the mark for you. We want everyone to enjoy each visit and leave feeling like they had a great meal. There's a lot of effort put into the seasoning and preparation of the dishes you mention, and... More

We have been looking for an Irish Pub near us ever since we went to one on vacation several years ago. This restaurant did NOT disappoint us! The food was absolutely delicious. I had the Beef and Guiness Stew, my husband had a Reuben and our son had the fish and chips. We all left with a smile on our... More

We stopped in here after a round of golf. The fish and chips were terrific. The bread pudding was to die for. Felicia was a terrific waitress. The food was fast hot and not very costly. I loved you will also.

Thanks for stopping in for some refreshment after some golf. Felicia will be happy to hear your comments, and I'll pass them on to her. A good meal for a good price is what anyone deserves, and I'm glad you tried the bread pudding. It's a personal favorite of mine. Cheers! Steve, Owner More

We put our names "on the list" on a Friday night and were told 40 minutes - it was closer to an hour - not too bad. By the time we got seated upstairs is was not really crowded - but it took over 30 minutes to get food. The waitress was not rude - but was not attentive /... More

Steve N, Owner at Irish Bred Pub, responded to this review

Friday nights are one of our busiest nights, and I'm sorry if our seating-time estimate was a bit off. The wait time for your food sounds a little long, and I am sorry about that. I can say that our staff is usually on point, so this feedback is helpful for me in future trainings. What surprised me the most,... More

We went to the Irish Bred Pub on Friday night with a party of 9. We were told the wait would be one hour. They took in two other large parties at the hour mark, then I asked for clarification about our table. The host told me that they had a table, but not enough chairs due to the other... More

I'm so sorry that we failed you and your group Friday night. We try really hard to keep large parties like yours informed about table availability and seating arrangements, but it sounds like we didn't do many things right for you or your guests this past Friday. Thank you for telling me about your experience. While it is painful to... More
