My brother has been ranting about this place to me for over a year. Had the Shepard's Pie. Fantastic! The Irish Coffee was amazing. My niece ranted how good her chicken strips was. Got there right at the end of dinner rush. Signs indicated short...staffed, but cleared out by the time our food came. Will be back.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

The waffles are terrific and the staff was very attentive. Loved the music over the speakers! A nice gem in the middle of Davidsonville.

This first visit was fantastic . I had the shepherds pie and the bread 🍞 pudding for dessert, it was delicious .The outside seating was great with cool ventilation. Social distancing was a priority. Our waiter was very conscientious with seating placement as well as...servicing. I will surely return to this restaurant.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

No reservation needed. We were seated right away in an area convenient to the Buffett area. Lots of choices including an omelet station with sliced ham or roast beef. Biscuits were a bit dried out in the warming trays and catfish filets were slightly overdone....Dessert section was nice.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

Good atmosphere. Most accommodating kitchen, personable service and good choice of beers. If you are in the area, it's well worth a visit. If you're even just a little bit Irish, welcome to nostalgia!

This is a real find - nestled off road amidst the rolling countryside of Davidsonville, Maryland, a relatively authentic Irish restaurant serving typical Irish food including bangers and mash, shepherd's pie, pasties, corned beef and cabbage, crab cakes and fresh Irish bread. The drinks menu...includes Smithwicks, Guinness on tap, a selection of fine draft beer and a range of whiskies and spirits. We stopped in at lunch time during a trip to Annapolis – the Killarney also has a pub in addition to the restaurant, which is quite spacious. The corned beef dinner with champ potatoes, carrots and parsnips was wonderful as was the Pat Murphy's pot roast - delicious! We got on the end of their happy hour (3 hours in fact, from 3 to 6 on weekdays), with bargain special beers at less than $5.00 and pints of Guinness, of course. Prices were competitive and two of us dined there for about $50. We plan to go back to visit the bar, if we pass this way again, to hear their much praised Irish music sessions.More

My 55 year reunion had a brunch at Killarney's. They a wide choice of foods to choose from. I personally had scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage and french toast. I was disappointed that they didn't have cream chip beef, but I later found out they did...and I just didn't see. The food was good and the company great. I will definitely return to this restaurant.More

I took my husband here for father's day. We had been here several years ago for the breakfast buffet and it was great. It is no longer worth the price. The food is basic room temperature eggs, potatoes and meat. The lunch type items of...sherpard's pie, leg of lamb and top round roast beef were difficult to get to. The buffet is in the front bar with no flow around the room. I got stuck in a corner so long, while getting shepard's pie, my meal was cold by the time I got back to the table. The potatoes were shriveled which means they sat around to long after cooking. The shrimp alfredo was the only seafood and it tasted like jarred sauce. Mediocre meal at best for $25 per person.More
