Wanted to see what a real Irish Bar and Grill was like. I ordered lamb, but the waitress told me that they had just ran out of it. So I had the walleye sandwich which was quite large, and very tasty. My wife had the Philly sandwich with AuJus- very good. They had a band playing some Folk/Rock music. We... More

Looks like an Irish bar in New York. I was not impressedc. Service was dicey - my fish was very good, but my husbands shepherds pie was served only warm. I would skip this one for dinner.....

A local recommended this place to us and I love finding the places that aren't chains. We were there on a Monday night for dinner, so the place was quiet. There were only a handful of patrons. The gentleman behind the bar talked with everyone and was drinking Arnie Palmer's in honor of the great Arnold Palmer having passed away... More

We had the panfried walleye and colcannon potatoes and I can't stop thinking about them. Crunchy crust and the walleye and wonderful flavor in the potatoes with kale and garlic. Yummmm. And a nice atmosphere.

This is a great local pub with lots of Irish inspired food. I had a walleye sandwich which was very good, but I must say a very small fillet for $12. I was expecting more than that. Fresh Bemidji beer on tap!

Great Irish food. Husband had the Rueben and I had the beef and root vegetables over mashed potatoes pie. Irish beer was good. Service excellent. Prices very reasonable.

I have always enjoyed coming here and will continue to for many years. Pros: - authentic Irish atmosphere - clean and well maintained - good place for meeting friends, catching up - great live music and trivia nights Cons: - Food can "at times" be hit and miss - ...

We stopped at Bridgid's Cross Irish Pub for a walleye sandwich and salad. The walleye was battered and fried, but very light and mild and served on a grilled Kaiser roll.The salad was surprisingly good with fresh mixed greens and fabulous homemade blue cheese dressing that was both creamy and chunky. Exactly what we were looking for!

Went early with my family. Probably not appropriate later on in the evening for little kids. Good food. We enjoyed the classic hamburger and walleye. Modest selection of beer on tap. Busy place that sometimes staff seem overwhelmed, but friendly staff for the situation. Don't expect a quick in and out meal.

We have been there twice for date night and we were both surprised that we were missing such great food! The stew is Amazing! You will not be sorry that you set foot threw the doors!
