We met friends here for a drink before dinner, excellent service, great atmosphere and decor. The drinks were done right and our appetizers were very good. Don't know how lunch or dinner would be but the menu looked pretty good.

I stopped here for dinner at the recommendation of a friend. The burger was outstanding and the atmosphere was very friendly.

Meet a work colleague for a drink this week for drinks and snacks. The wine was great but the buffalo wings were not. My fault since it may not be the thing to order at an Irish Bar. Also - it did not seem right that you can't get the Happy Hour deal unless you are at the bar.

Visited Rooney's for lunch for the first time yesterday. Great authentic Irish food and small batch craft beer along with other well known beer brands. They also had more traditional menu items like sliders and salads. The service was also very warm and friendly. We will definitely return.

I went with a few friend to knock back a beer or 2 and to have something to eat. The service was no-existent, my guess because we did,t sat at the bar? When we did get feed the food was fair to almost good. but the service sucked hard, once we got out food we never saw the same server... More

Went there for a business meeting and ordered the Cobb salad. It tasted just fine and was of decent size. I also ordered iced tea with no notable problem. Approximately 12:45 a.m., I made the mad dash for the toilet. An hour and a half later, I was able to leave the throne. I had not eaten since three, so... More
