They make their own potato chips and offer one menu item termed "Irish Nachos which were quite good - loaded with seasoned meat, queso and jalapenos.

We visit this place from time to time and we have always liked the food and the beer. They serve a great Hefeweizen and the fish and chips are good too. You'll get a good meal for a decent price. Outside seating too!

Visited Wednesday evening, few diners. Typical food selections (Cobb salad-wilted lettuce searching for meat morsels), but good beer varieties. Service was very good.

The food was great! I sat at the bar, service wasn't that great due to the march madness game on tv! But it was not busy, peaceful and the important thing was the food! I had the roast beef sandwich with au jus!! Makes my mouth water just thinking about it!! Definitely a place I would go back to and... More

There were 4 of us for lunch. Menu was varied but a little pricey for what you got. All of us had different items and no complaints. Food took a while to get out and we were the only customers (got there early). They really didn't have much of a lunch crowd. Service was good.

May be hit this place on an off day, but went to watch a game last fall and the service was poor and food was just OK! We will try one more time to see if it has improved?!? One good thing is beer selection was good...

I met a friend at Fat Squirrel. She'd already eaten the beef stew. Said it was quite good. I don't eat corn so I was pleased to discover they have "Irish Nachos", that use home made potato chips instead of corn chips. The chips were good, not all of them terribly crisp which verified they were made inhouse. The rest... More
