The whisky tomato soup is excellent, highly recommend it and you can't go wrong with any of the meals. One of my favorite winter spots.

We have been patrons of the Brian Boru for several years. Coming to the restaurant is like visiting an old friend. They are friendly, dependable and predictable. No matter what you order, the food is freshly cooked, tasty and plentiful. The corned beef is melt in your mouth quality with no fat to spoil the taste. Our favorite afternoon meal... More

We have not been hear before but it looked inviting, so we pulled in. We were greeted by the host with a warm smile who said he was happy to see us----and it was genuine. And the wait staff was just as gracious and attentive. Not a common experience in most restaurants where you feel people are on automatic. We... More

Having been going to Brian Boru for years, I can tell you that it remains one of the places my family turns to for a good meal. It doesn't disappoint, whether you want traditional Irish fair or a good burger. The service is always very warm and helpful and makes our dinners enjoyable.

Great place for Craft Beer, Oysters, and Best Service around; Really Authentic. For Irish authenticity this is it. The happy hour was great; very creative menu with lots of choices, the value was good but the service was icing on the cake. The Irish music, dark wood, food made this my favorite stop on Rt. 2.

Went here with friends and family and everyone enjoyed the several traditional Irish meals. Shepherds Pie, Fish & Chips, Corned Beef and Cabbage were prepared perfectly and enjoyed by all. The Guinness was poured perfectly also. The waitstaff was courteous and helpful and was not intrusive. I highly recommend this restaurant for family, friends or couples who are looking for... More

A great local Irish Pub on the outskirts of Severn Park. They serve a very good assortment of draft beers along with an ever changing list of food specials. Irish staples like the Shepherds Pie or Fish and Chips are good "go-to" dishes as they are fairly consistent. Service is good - food is served hot and fairly quickly depending... More
