We stopped in after a long road trip and were welcomed with great beer and Irish food. There is a restaurant in the front and a bar in the back with live music. If we were not tired from our trip we would have stayed hours.

Waitress was friendly but the food was terrible. I had a Caesar salad chicken sandwich and the chicken was rubbery and the sandwich had no flavor. Will not go back.

True Irish food so folks not accustomed may find the breads and desserts not to their liking. We've eaten there many times and I've only had one occasion that the Shepherds Pie was more potato than meat and vegetables.

My husband ordered a Smithwick's beer which was fine. I ordered a chardonnay wine. It was undrinkable. I took it back to the bartender (still a full glass) and asked to change my selection. The bartender said I couldn't switch drinks but could order another drink. I ordered a Pinot Grigio of the same low quality wine brand. Paid for... More

Had a couple pints of Guinness and the Irish eggrolls, which were delish. Two other people at the bar ordered them and they got rave reviews all around. Owner attempting to create an authentic, quality atmosphere and I enjoyed my lunch. No complaints!

There are 'Irish Pubs' dotting the landscape that lack real authenticity. This is a pleasant surprise in an unassuming space. True Irish melt in your mouth bangers with the most amazing, garlicky mash! The Shepherds pie has amazing flavor topped with the mash, huge portion. You'll love the the Irish stew. Definitely a local favorite, and we'll be returning often.

We stopped here on Valentines evening, just to rest our feet after a long day walking and shopping in Downtown Fxburg. Had the Irish Apple and an appetizer. The drink was absolutely amazing! I was blown away. The service at The Blarney Stone really is friendly, quick and not intrusive. The atmosphere was very good, what I expected from an... More

We tried this restaurant for lunch after church and were not impressed with our meals. The food was ok and the service was decent but for the price there are many other options in downtown Fredericksburg that I would suggest.

We went here as a last minute decision because we didn't want to go to another chain restaurant. We had friendly service. Loved the shepherds pie and the chicken wings were DELICIOUS! The smaller pie is plenty or get a regular sized one to share - we had a lot of left overs. It's not fancy but it's a nice,... More

Very disappointed. I will definitely not return. We received a mediocre meal for lunch and a bill for approximately $30. Without my permission, our server Christopher H decided to give himself a $15 tip. When the bill came I surrendered the debit card and Chris returned with 3 copies of the receipt. One was the itemized list of what were... More
