If you are looking for either a pub atmosphere or a family sit down then this is a good place to eat. Very good Irish food. Love the shepherd's pie. Also really enjoyed the lunch special French dip.

Characters is located in an older building which at the turn of the last century was also a hotel. The menu, while large, consists mostly of familiar American dishes. There are also approximately 6 Irish dishes as well as a pizza selection. The atmosphere is homey and most likely has not been updated for decades. The customers appear to be... More
