The owners of this place are really top notch people. My family has been frequenting this business for about the last 15 years or so and love it just as much as the first day we stepped foot inside. It has two walls wide of tvs to watch whatever games are on at the moment. They have a full bar... More

We passed this restaurant on the way to the beach so came back to it the next day. Nice cold beer and great sandwiches!

We stopped in after a long trip and were pleasantly surprised. Hubby had the bangers and garlic mash with gravy. It was very flavorful and felt like home cooking. I had the Reuben with a side of homemade French onion soup. I was very happy with the corned beef and the soup was rich and yummy. A ground brown mustard... More

I haven't been to the Claddagh in about 6-7 years. In fact it has been so long I couldn't remember why. On Sept 6, 2015 I placed a to-go order. I ordered a Kobe cheeseburger for myself and fish and chips for my girlfriend. We live pretty close so the food stays pretty warm and fresh for the 3 minute... More

Very nice place. Walked in and sat right down and hey we're pretty busy the waitress was there as soon as we sat down to make sure that the table was ok for us. We had a couple of questions about some of the items and she was very helpful about them. The menu is small but a great variety... More

Food is good not to many choices but what theu did have was good. Service was well below expectations. We sat at the bar because there seemed to be only one person running the whole thing, thought it would be faster service. When we ordered it was a simple app and drinks. The bartender was at the bar the whole... More

I always love coming here. The atmosphere is fun Irish and reminds me of Ireland. The food is always good, from Shepherds Pie to, fish & chips and of course corned beef served any which way. Service is always friendly and you feel welcomed.

My family has been going here, off & on, for the last 3 years. We've met & spoken with the owner who is actually from the UK so in that respect it is an 'authentic' Pub. Each time we go we have a different experience. The service is sporadic: one time it will be acceptable, the next horrible. I would... More

When you walk in, the building doesn't shout "pub" but don't let that scare you off. These people have pub in their hearts. Excellent selection of beers & ales whiskies, etc. and the food is very good, I have had the BEST Calamari (yes, calamari) there, better than at seafood restaurants in SF or Monterey. Banger sandwich is excellent and... More
