I have lived here for 21 years and never had service this bad from a female bartender! She was rude, inefficient and totally unqualified for her position. I will not go back.

We went to Darren Clarke’s Tavern on the recommendation of a friend who lives on the island. She had not been here in a while, and I think she would be disappointed too. We went on a Monday evening, which was a very slow night...More

Darren Clarke and Michael Doyle teamed up to create a classic. Darren Clarke’s Tavern is the climax of all they have experienced from many years at the top of their fields. Mike came to the table with a career’s worth of experience at the finest steakhouse in New York City. Darren Clarke brought an illustrious career in golf, representing Ireland in both amateur and professional tournaments including the World Cup, the Alfred Dunhill Cup and on five consecutive Ryder Cup teams. Darren has won 22 tournaments on the European and PGA tours. Both know what they’re doing in a restaurant or a bar. Clarke’s is their way of sharing their own experience and passion with others who love excellent food and fellowship.
