“Good Food, But At the End It's Just Another Chain Restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

I recently had a lunch for two on the patio of Tir Nan Og in Kingston. Great view of the waterfront and downtown Kingston. Service was good, our waitress was polite, the beer was cold. I ordered their burger and fries. When it arrived I could literally count the fries on my plate -- all eleven of them! When our waitress returned and asked how we were doing I said the food was quite good, but the serving of fries was pitiful. She did not disagree, went back to the kitchen and the manager, and came back apologizing but told me they could give me no more and that I had received the "proper portion" and there was nothing she could do for me. Do you call this customer service??! If you're in Kingston and are in the mood for pub fare, look over on Clarence Street and you will find the Kingston Brewing Company where you are always looked after as local pubs do.

“Good beer, food could be better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

I was expecting more. Order the curry chicken tikka marsala. It seemed to have only very tiny bits of chicken, almost minced size. It did taste good but it does not beckon to return and order the same. Avoid the pasta; it is bland.

The speckled hen beer on tap was very good.

“Nice place”

Been here twice, had the balcay chips, very good. We also ordered chicken grill flatbread and lamb burger. Service was quick and prompt. Would go back for the chips.

“OK for an Irish Restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

Great location with a nice outside eating area and lots of options inside (3 different bar and seating areas). Service was very friendly but had to wait 30 minutes for food (we were warned in advance). Once it came, was just average (lamb burgers). Honestly, the prices for the food and beers were really higher than we would have expected. There are some cheaper menu options though so worth a shot.
