We went in and ordered the sampler which gives you Sheppard’s Pie, Boxty, Irish Stew and Corned Beef with Cabbage. We devoured every bite. This place is interesting, fun and the food is absolutely delicious.

T’was a pretty awesome visit: Greeted quickly and seated in timely manner, with a smile. The service was good, and drinks never ran dry. The Shepherds Pie was good, as were the appetizer/platters. Based on this experience, definitely recommend and I plan to return.

From the Irish folk music in the background to the imported vintage Irish artifacts, The Field tries very hard to set the stage. Friendly, professional staff, decent to good pub grub, and happy hour specials make for a good place to settle in for a...More
