The food was good. It is nice and comfortable. The entire place looks like a traditional Irish pub. the atmosphere didn't quite fit though. The service was below average. I had to get up and ask for things three times even though it was not in the least bit crowded even had to ask for the check. I thought that... More

Friendly local Irish neighborhood bar with limited (but tasty) menu. Friendly staff too !!Good selection of brews including local IPA. An off duty firemen's hang out place that can become lively at times. Acoustic music on the weekends.

Went down to the Harp and Hound the other night, hadn't been there for a while. It was a Friday night in the middle of tourist season, but we got in about 8 PM with no waiting.

Dimly lit, all wood. It's the kind of bar you'd expect to find in a seaport town. Irish brogued bartender completed the experience. Good for a few..

I live locally, this is arguably the best bar in the area, certainly the best Irish Pub, and just that...an Irish Pub. Don't expect 5 star cuisine or linen table cloths, but authentic comfort food, friendly service, colorful locals and great live music. I frequent this spot often and for good reason, it's very well managed.

We were in Mystic and doing a little pub crawl around town. Stumbled across the Harp and Hound. The bar was full and the TV's all had a soccer match on which all the patrons seemed to interested in. We had a couple draft beers, but didn't eat anything. Nice atmosphere. Would stop by again when in the area.
