There a few times in my life where i have woken up after a night of drinking and felt dirty. This is one of them minus the ridiculous amounts of alcohol. If you like paying alot for frozen and canned food, please enter. I recommend...you go only if this place is the last place open on earth. Bon appetite!More

Restaurant and bar along hwy 52. Excellent food and a large menu for a country place. Friendly personal and good service at a reasonable price. Clean and roomy with an attempt at being sports bar on one side, could be with the right crowd. The...other side is just a restaurant for those that do not want the bar atmosphere. Highly recommend if you are in the area!More

We had such a great meal on a Friday night after the high school basketball tournament in Feb. There were 4 of us and we sat in a big booth right away. Drinks came out immediately and appetizers shortly after. Our waitress was so nice...and recommended some great options. The second waitress that delivered our food was very sweet as well. Breakfast is served all day and the chicken fried steak is great. The burgers are the best though. Perfectly ground beef and some great extras offered with the dinners. Our food came out not too long after ordering and we all ordered something different. Prices aren't too expensive, the most expensive steak is about $28. Specials are great! Service was the best! Bathrooms are cleanMore

A local pub with a wide variety of items on the menu. Everything from steaks, burger, pasta and fish. Family dining is separate from the bar.

It's a Midwest restaurant with a bar and pool tables. They have recently walled the bar poolroom off from the general dining area which is good for families.

We are here because it's convenient to the hotel. You can get a cold beer and a hot meal. The foods all ok. Over cooked burgers but what can take do these days. A few of the guys got steaks and said they were ok...but not worth the price. Not to many restaurants to choose from here in Kenmare. Friendly staff! Overall it is ok but pricey.More

My husband and I have eaten here on a few occasions now and we really enjoy the food and atmosphere. The steak sandwich is the best thing that I've eaten here so far.

i have been eating here when i visit Kenmare of the last 10 years. One never knows what the quality of the food or service will be with each visit. This last time is was good with good service. There is a large selection of...items offered on the menu. The problem is that they do not give you an itemized bill for the meal so you need to just take their word that the total they provide is correct and then charge you an additional $1.00 service fee for putting it on a credit card which is very poor on their part on both counts.More

I don't understand the decent reviews. This place has horrible tasting caffetaria food. It is also grossly overpriced. You order a burger and the fries are a la carte! And they don't tell you until you get the bill. I payed 16$ not including tip...for a terrible tasting burger fries and one coors light. The ONLY reason I gave the poor review and not terrible is because the staff was nice and friendly. Food=terrible Service=great Price=ridiculous Will I go there ever again? No way!More

Beer, burgers, juke box and pool tables! Need one say more? You will be guaranteed a substantial sized meal at this cavernous eatery and a wide variety of adult beverages at this usually busy tavern/pub/restaurant.

Our food and service was good. It was nice that it was across the parking lot from our hotel, so we didn't have to drive

The food's OK (burger was good), beer selection OK, service was fine. Nothing spectacular or special but if you're looking for lunch or dinner in Kenmare, this is the place.
