My wife and I met friends here for the first time about a month ago. We all found this to be a charming, old fashion Irish pub with delightful atmosphere, great service, and really good food at reasonable prices. Also, the draft beer choices aren't too shabby either. Anyway, we found it all so good that we returned again last... More

We lucked into this place on a night when they had a bagpipe band(?) playing. The owner even sang a few songs. Although obviously a local place, we were made to feel welcome. The food was delicious, especially the Guinness bread. The bangers and mash were the best I've ever had, including the numbers of times that I've eaten bangers... More

My husband I go to Byrnes each time we visit my home state of Maine. It has a comfortably worn look, and it seems to be a favorite of the locals. I always order a BLT sandwich on marble rye--rich and satisfying!

The pub was decorated in the dark wood style of Irish pubs. There were police badges around the door, pictures of Ireland, and cute sayings posted on the walls. My Shepherd's pie was sumptuous and my husband's pastrami sandwich was very rich. The turkey & rice soup was outrageous! I tried to get the recipe but the cook wasn't in... More

Comfortable, easy-going pub. After a walk about the town we stopped in for a cold one and some yummy bar food. It was so relaxing we returned the next day. The kind of place that draws the locals, so you know it's good.

We hadn't been to Byrne's in several years, and were pleased to discover that it's still going strong, and the experience is as good as ever. The food is great for "pub food," and the service was wonderful. It has a convenient location in downtown Bath, and now another location in Brunswick. The pricing is very reasonable, and it has...

Monday nights are crowded, but are full of fun as well, with live Irish music and group games and some of the best pub food the region has to offer.

We were sent here by a local innkeeper for lunch. I'm betting little has been done to this place in years except changing local event notices tacked to the walls. Our table wobbled badly. Yes, old floors in old buildings are uneven, but at least a matchbook could have helped. The soup of the day was a bland baked potato... More
