Most Irish pubs look the same, slightly shabby, lots of memorabilia chock-a-block on the walls -- the feel of a workingman's bar -- and Pat Troy's certainly follows the pattern. We stopped here for lunch, attracted by the outside dining options and the wizend, white-haired harpist playing for diners. This is a big restaurant -- one the can easily be divided into sections for large groups. There are two outdoor dining areas -- one overlooking the street and one in a courtyard at the rear. Food is basic pub fare with brunch specials and I'm almost certain, St. Patrick's Day specials as well. I had a pulled pork sandwhich with fries. It came piled on a bun and topped with fried onion straws. Hubby had a Reuben. He liked the nice balance of corned beef to saurkraut served on grilled bread with a side of spicy mustard and fries. Our waitress was friendly and knew all the house beers on offer by heart. The food was good -- nothing amazing, just tasty and filling. We enjoyed it and left feeling pleasantly full but not stuffed. We went in just as the lunch crowd was thinning, so the place was only sparsely filled with people enjoying a late lunch, beer, and football. Most seats are good. You might want to avoid the table on the upper level that's right outside the kitchen unless you enjoy quick glimpses of the business side of the restaurant. I'd like to visit again, on a cold night, when the dark and cozy interior is probably at its best and filled with a crowd of sports fans. We liked it and would probably go again. I could see this place being a neighborhood favorite.
