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.

Visiting our super wonderful friends in N.H. (we're from Michigan), they decided to take us to this lovely place for lunch. The amazing thing about this place is that it really once was a Catholic Church. And yes, our friends actually attend this parish and did get married here as well. The church was sold and is now a food... More

Got attitude about a ice water, with lemon--- then no one ever came back to take dinner order. After a long wait>>>> we literally had to wave down someone to put order... More
