Kilkenny House has setup outdoor dining in their parking lot and tables are well spaced. Service was very good. Shepard's Pie was tasty

A delightful local place to eat with Barry the owner visiting each table with his fun Irish humor. Regular menus with great burgers and flavorful Irish dishes supplemented with daily specials.

Stopped by for a beer and Reuben sandwich. Got a nice table by the fireplace on a very cold day. The atmosphere was upbeat and the food was great. This place is one of the best pubs I have been to in a long long...time.More

With the price of burgers skyrocketing just about everywhere...even in diners...it is noteworthy to come across a world-class burger for just $10. This burger is juicy, flavorful and served on an English muffin. AND if you don't want fries, you can get a side salad....It's not just a bunch of lettuce. The salad is loaded with tomatoes, onions, carrots and other ingredients. I highly recommend checking it out!!More

Visited Kilkennys with Family on a Wed night, place was very busy and there were few spare seats. Tried the Guinness and it tasted great. I had the Cottage Pie and it tasted great, I certainly enjoyed it. Staff were very good and we had...a great time at Killkennys. When in the area I'll be back for more Guinness & Pie !More

About as close as you can get to authentic irish food without actually being in ireland. Everyone loved the food and the Guinness was great.

This place couldn’t be worse. Horrible air conditioning, don’t sit in the back room as it smells like bathroom sewage and the waitresses are just idiots. Food wasn’t bad but it’s hard to eat when the back room smells like a porta John. Go elsewhere....My family was so disappointed. This place is bad.More

Hugh, I am sorry you did not have a good time at Kilkenny House. We had issues all week with our air conditioning and I apologize for that. The weather was brutal and 2 air conditioners went down which might have lead to the smell...More

Sat at the bar to have some drinks and a light meal. Had a band playing that was pretty good. The bar crowd were people closer to my age, which is over 40 so I felt right at home. Hamburger was a good meal and...the bartender was friendly serving up my cold beers on tap!More

Visited on a Sunday and enjoyed the live music, bar drinks, and food. Corned beef sandwich had thick slices with fries, good burgers, sweet potato veggie burger and many more selections. Outdoor service and 2 dining rooms. A fun time in a lovely walkable town.
