“Rude Staff Bad Food.”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

The soup was not edible. The fondue was chalky. When we complain the manager did nothing. We will never return.

“This is NOT Your Average Irish Pub”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Irish pubs are not the first place that come into my mind when looking for a place to eat. But a friend said we had to try The Dubliner - and what an absolutely wonderful experience. The owner Sean has developed his pride and joy into an eaterie that can rival - and beat - so many pretentious and more expensive restaurants.
We had mussels for starters, which come in an amazing sauce, then baked brie with a honey coating, also delicious. This was followed by grilled salmon with roasted vegetables and steamed spinach. Again, this dish was not your average salmon - Sean's Irish magic transformed this dish into a most exceptional presentation. Finally, we ended our meal with a hot chocolate fondue, with which we coated strawberries, banana, marshmallows and Graham crackers. What a way to end a magnificent meal. Sean also gave us a taster of his pastrami with a mustard sauce - which
was absolutely scrumptious!
Mizner Park has many restaurants and is a destination for fine dining and shopping. If you want an excellent meal do not pass the Dubliner. Go in, and enjoy the experience.

Reviewed September 29, 2012

we went on a fri night 9/28/12. its in mizner park.i had a beer at 6.45pm it was happy hour only cost $2.50 i also had sheppards pie it was okay nothing to get excited about.my wife makes a beef pie with more ingredients that tastes much better.she had fish and chips(steak fries) they use cod its deep fried and i have had better food at a bar in lantana. i forgot the name. the service was good and the manager came around 3 times to check us out . the tables were worn and the chair i sat on had to switch it because it rocked. it was falling apart. the place is nothing to talk about the atmosphere was a bar and need some work .it was crowded and very noicy we left before they set up a band. that really would have been in high decebells and you would have to be outside, shorts are good for this place. i had a certificate and will not return .the well off eat across the street and they were plenty of fancy sport cars park by the valet. this ends this experience

“Hole in the wall bar with high prices”
Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

Went there on a Saturday afternoon, when the restaurant was empty. Beer was high ($7 a glass for ale). Other bars in area charge $2.50 in the afternoon. They were charging entertainment cover charge prices for beer when there wasn't any entertainment. No wonder they were empty.
For our late lunch, we had the potato leek soup (excellent), fish and chips (only one fish filet, most places give 2-3 filets), the special fish of the day (which was old) and crab cakes (not bad, however not like a Baltimore crab cake). The roasted vegetables were dry but the mashed potatoes were tasty. However mashed potatoes and soup don't make you return to a restaurant.
Probably more of a watering hole.

“Great for happy hour”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

This is a great stop for happy hour, or stay and have a bite of Ireland with a delicious Shepard's Pie. They have a great variety of beer on tap for some liquid refreshment after a busy day at the office.
