Came here twice in same week first Time meal was great with good service second time waiters slow and didn’t bring correct change back although it was 25 cents the waiter never came back to even bring to his attention. We even had two waiters...tag teaming us. We were taxed 3% to use credit card, taxed on the liquor and again on the food. Love Killarney House but Friday Jan 5th 2024 poor service.More

I had some issues with my food. I had the crabcake sandwich, and despite asking and being assured that there were no onions in it, there were. First, the sauce had onions, which I did not realize until I put it on the sandwich and...tasted it. The server was really nice about it and had a new sandwich prepared for me. This time I skipped the sauce, but the crabcake still tasted strongly of onions. It was a pricey sandwich at $24, but I couldn't eat it. Even without the onions, it wasn't very good.More

Great service. Nice ambiance. We ate there twice in our 3 day stay. I got the cabbage roll appetizer and my husband got corned beef poppers. Both. Were. Amazing! Second visit he got bacon grilled cheese with tomato whiskey soup. He said it was great!...I got a salad with turkey and it was just okay. But the service and people were amazing. And Oliver was so kind and friendly. Not sure if he is the owner or just a kind man. But he walked around and greeted everyone.More

First, this restaurant is much improved. The interior has been updated & the whole layout of the dining room reconfigured for a cozier feel. And they have finally improved the lighting!!! There are now comfortable booths & tables, along with a couple of high top...tables in the back for the younger patrons. The food selection is much better too. The last time my lunch group ate here we all admitted to having terrible meals. This time we had more sandwich choices along with some Irish food & I didn't see large, unappetizing chunks of unseasoned, under-steamed cruciferous vegetables on anyone's plate. I did try to get a Shepherd's Pie without peas by calling ahead; I'm allergic to peas. But even calling two hours ahead got me an unsympathetic no from the girl manager. So absolutely no special orders on the food. My Rachel Ruben was good, if greasy. Our server was too busy - something we've come to expect post pandemic - so service was on the slow side. The real beauty of this restaurant is the neighborhood bar atmosphere & the nightly live music by local musicians. I really appreciate the owners working hard to provide music. So come in the evening, have a drink & listen to some music. The food is safe to eat now, too, if not spectacular. I'd come for lunch or dinner more if they'd hire a real chef to oversee their restaurants' food. Still, this place much improved for a South County restaurant.More

Great decor; friendly service; good music. Food is really good. Been here a few times - very consistent. Bar, patio snd main dining room are all fun places to enjoy a meal. Love the corned beef and cabbage; the ms. Shirley crabcake, and the corned...beef popper apps. Pretty much enjoy everything on the menu. Did not love the vegetarian boxty: too many peppers and nothing else, but the potato pancake was very good.More

1. Cutest restaurant that makes you feel at home in Ireland 2. NICEST staff and many are from Ireland. 3. THE FOOD! Wow is all I can say. If you liked corned beef, don't skip it! It is possibly the best corned beef I had...ever had such tender corned beef ever. I got the reuben which was very good and their fries are awesome. I tried a taste of other friends meals and everything was delicious. I cannot wait to go back!More

We love Kilarney House and have eaten there often. The last 3 times we have brought our service dog (my husband is a disabled veteran) we have been seated in the parking lot tent rather in the dining room even when we have made reservations....When we have asked to be moved to the dining room we were met with resistance and a raised voice from the managers. The last time this happened we were with a group of 21 and they wanted to put our table outside. Prior to this we were always welcome inside with the service dog.More

This place clearly don’t appreciate their customer I had fat on my food a lot of it and I called to say something they not only mistaked me for someone last year which had me baffled they implied I was lying and I had to...send a picture to prove there was fat on my meal. Shame on them honestly They clearly need to be shut down because of how bad they treat their customers and I hope God gives them what’s coming to them for how they talked to me today initially before I sent the picture. Before I sent the picture both the manager and the owner sounded off saying there’s no fat on our food repeatedly (several times) and then said you had this problem last year same time I believe (that’s when they mistaked me for someone else) then the owner after seeing the text of the proof sang a different tune too late and said I’ll take your word for it and if they took my word for it I wouldn’t had to show this very picture what a joke… i have better things to do than make up complaints bout fat I actually take care of people and took care of a lot of ppl in my past as well as caring for a dying dog in the last year and caring for a new puppy now so I’m sore, and I don’t deserve as a formal health worker and as a person to be treated this way. Very dishonest workers and trust me when you got a problem they will lie through their teeth saying there’s no fat and then confuse you with another person like they did me. It’s sad when you run a business and you don’t have that personal touch with the customer’s because when dealing with people you need compassion and not greed. Because greed you only think about money and not the person and forgetting there is honest people out there with genuine issues with food and your first complaint they run at the mouth rather than have compassion for you. After working in CNA (certified nursing assistant) at one point and now studying vet tech I realized how to have compassion for people and have a personal touch. To the point where your body aches and you say hey it’s nice to have a good meal somewhere and not have to worry bout cooking and you go somewhere where you remember having a good meal years ago like I did and after ordering several times they not only claim they don’t remember you they also mistake you for someone else and act cruel and lie. Honestly don’t go to this business there’s caring businesses out there and this is not one of them. They have no personal touch or compassion just greedMore

We usually come to the Killarney house for lunch. It’s nice to sit outside on the large patio bordered with flower arrangements. The food is very good, we like the salmon BLT and the shrimp avocado toast. The lunch specials are often awesome, especially when...they have fresh fish. Service is very friendly, pleasant and efficient. There are good beers on tap, great Guinness ofcourse. Certainly worth stopping by if you’re in the Davidsonville/ Edgewater area!More

Have been a patron of Killarney House for many years, mostly in the bar for a pint of Guinness and the friendly barkeeps and atmosphere. The food is also first rate. My favorite is the Lamb Stew but a close second is the Fish and...Chips. As a veteran charter boat fisherman of many decades, a fish lover, and a wide-range traveler, I can honestly say that the Killarney House Fish and Chips is the best I ever have had. The folks there are friendly and the food is very good. In these times of "carry out only", do yourself a favor if you are in the Annapolis/Davidsonville area and order takeout/pickup from the Killarney House. You will not be disappointed. Disclaimer: I do not work for Killarney House, just trying to pass along some good eating advice in a time where good food is becoming unceasingly hard to come by.More

There are so many good things to say about Killarney house that it is hard to know where to begin. Well the food, it’s Irish, and it’s fresh, local ingredients for long time favorites. We will honor of our way to get Ruben there, and...don’t forget the extra stone ground mustard. The Sunday brunch :mmm all you can eat Shepard’s pie, need I say more ? Well there is more omelette station , carving station, and other delictables. I am just now thinking of going there for burger night since it is Monday. There’s another night oyster night where a local oyster farmer brings his own oysters, and shucks them for you. Oh and the eggs, come from their chickens out back. Drinks are pretty standard and you can’t go wrong with what ever you orderMore
