Good place for a meal with many friends

This restaurant offers a very welcoming atmosphere from the moment you walk in the door. Well laid out and clean, with lots of wood decoration, it seems cozy right from the start. The bar is well located, between two wings of tables on one side and almost-booths on the other, so you can have an... read more

We found Brian Boru a few years ago. This place takes the cake with their corned beef. We come here for the poppers and Reuben's. The beer selection is always good and they have a lot of local brews. We enjoy the bar area, with Joe and Jamie working behind the bar. We wished we lived closer.

My wife, and friend of ours, and I ate here last week. Since our last visit, it seems that they have upgraded the menu and now offer a more diverse selection - which is good. It's a bit noisy, but being that it's a pub/restaurant type atmosphere, that's not unreasonable We've been there many times in the past, and I'm... More

This used to be my favorite restaurant, but they took away my favorite meal! Why won't they bring it back?

I only have been to BB for the Sunday Brunch - a wide variety of buffet options - usually shepherd's pie, scrambled eggs, pastries, plus omelettes and waffles. Usually 3 options on the dessert station. A good deal for $15!

This is one of our favorite hometown restaurants. Everything from the atmosphere to the food is outstanding. It's one of our "go-to" places when we want to take out visiting family and friends for lunch or dinner. Everyone always loves the food and if you like to eat a little later on a weekend night, you can enjoy some good... More

Price for steak would have been great if the steak had flavor @ $19 for 8oz. Seafood platter @ $26 was good, not great

We had Midwestern guests who wanted fried oysters. They are served here as an appetizer and a double order was very plentiful. Everyone else also enjoyed their meal.
