Its more of a burger place , and they have a good one, but after that its nothing like the pub food in Irish pubs. Irish coffee forget it as its weak and tasteless. The part owner and manager was very rude after sending back the Irish coffee and came to our table like a madman. I will never go... More

A favorite meeting spot for family and friends as it's halfway between the seacoast and Manchester. Expect to wait for a table on Fri/Sat evenings, as it's popular with a lot of folk. Love the ambience - stained glass windows are beautiful. Food is consistently excellent and portion sizes are generous - took half my burger home. Beef stew is... More

OMG! So sorry that we chose this venue. Undertrained wait staff, cocky rude disrespectful bar staff and a manger who clearly isn't interested in repeat business. We had well over a 300.00 tab for mediocre food, undertrained waitstaff and an uncaring GM! If you just want one beer great location. The music was great, but Dave you money for somewhere... More

The Holy Grail offers a good variety of sandwiches, burgers, and entrees for lunch. On this occasion we ordered a Caprese chicken sandwich and an Irish dip. Both were served on ciabatta rolls, which were very good. Sandwiches are served with fries. They offer a good selection of beers. Our server was very pleasant and our meals arrived in a... More

Holy Grail is in an old church. It is so awesome!! I had the Irish beef stew and sweet potato tots. So very good. Never had sweet potato tots before. They were wonderful and plenty to share and we still couldn't eat all of them. There is a circular bar and it was very busy, especially since it was a... More

We stopped here for a quick lunch, menus prices were moderate, very cool location, a converted church, you can be seated in the steeple, the hardwood finish of the original building is still used. The food is Irish / American or in line with topical bar food. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive.

Was in the area and was hungry for something tasty. Holy Grail was first to come to mind. Never been and always wanted to try. My husband and I pre checked the menu and knew we had to try. I got the Irish dip and he got the Rueben. We each had half of each to share. Was the absolute... More

Converted Catholic Church into NH's Best Irish Pub in the State! Original stain-glass windows, light fixtures and large harp shaped bar. Great family restaurant, something for everyone! Enjoy one of our 26 beers on draft or our specialty drinks. Amazing outdoor seating that takes you on a trip back to the old country. Our function hall holds up to 100 guests for the perfect celebration! Visit us once, and you'll be back again & again!
