My wife and I were looking for restaurant to eat at that was both inexpensive and had good food. We fond both in Golden Irene's. The salad was was big and fresh, the house vinagrette dressing delicious. I had the Fettucini Alfredo with Chicken, my wife had spaghetti and the portions are, indeed, enormous. The food was great and the service was just as good. It is a little off the beaten path, but it is worth the search. I don't know if I will ever get the chance to get back here, but I highly recommended this restaurant to friends who live nearby. You should definitely check this place out.

I am snobby when it comes to eating out since I am a pretty good cook myself. I really love this place. We ate at the bar. Great cocktails - I had Arnold Palmers. For dinner, I got beet raviolis in a walnut cream sauce which came with a salad. Although the portion was huge which is not what amazed me, it was the flavor profile. These were absolutely homemade and amazing. The salad was super fresh and served with a loaf of bread and a really tasty olive oil with garlic and spices. My husband got an eggplant grinder and that was really fantastic too. We will definitely be back.

I was pleased with the service and the food. They give you a big portion of spaghetti and I had enough to take home. Great menu selection and the food was delicious. Give it a try.

Golden Irene's is hidden off of RT-140 in a residential neighborhood, but I always make the effort to come here often. The menu has a whole Greek section, and a lot of the entrees throughout are creatively designed. The prices can be a little high, especially for the tapas part of the menu. There's a hopping bar attached to it, but I've never spent time there. If I have to take guests out to eat, Golden Irene's is always a top choice--good variety of food and a slightly upscale ambiance. Don't feel you have to dress up, but you could do a date night here and not look out of place. They are committed to growing a lot of their produce on their family farm, and the servers and George are all very nice.

Positives: I love their pizza--I think they make one of the best red pizzas around. The roast beef grinders are a must--ask if they have it, it might not be on the dinner menu.

The only negative is that sometimes they run out of entrees and you have to be ready with a backup choice. Also, the music is terrible--porn-y jazz. Enjoy!
