This is my goto place for gathering with friends. Good happy hour specials and good food. Sounds crazy to suggest trying the pizza at an Irish pub but you should!

“Good Food. Great Service. But Dirty Silverware!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

My wife and I headed over to St Pete in order to take/do the Segway Tour. As the tour meets right in front of Courigan's, we figured why not grab a quick bite. As with all of my reviews I will cover the pros, the cons, and will summarize.

Pros:
Easy location to find.
Décor centers on things "Proud American". I really appreciated this!
The food was delish.
Service was attentive.

Cons:
My soup spoon came out with a nice bonus of someone else's (what looked like) chili with crackers on it. Not very appetizing and could not help but wonder how the server could miss it.
Bathroom was a little nasty. My wife said one toilet in her restroom was stopped up.
Noone ever offered us any dessert. (not sure if they even have it there)

Summary:
This is a typical sports bar but with a little addition of some good food and a feel good experience seeing the military memorabilia. The big question is whether or not I/we would eat there again. The answer is absolutely yes. The food was good, the service was attentive, and the location was awesome. They just need to pay a little more attention to the fine details and they could easily earn the highest ranking on here.

“It's okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Our group of 4 stopped in for beer and appetizers on a Monday at around noon. The beer was good, of course, but the food was so-so. One of our party ordered mozzarella sticks (in an Irish bar???) which came out lukewarm although the marinara dipping sauce was good. There was one couple having lunch inside, but we chose to sit outside at the hightop tables on the sidewalk overlooking the park across the street. Since there was only a total of 6 customers, it was surprising to have to wait nearly 30 minutes for our food.

“Enjoy great food with the locals!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

Updated menu, several new selections (new appetizers, more burger choices, a few new entrees). But fries are no longer included with the burger rather a small side of coleslaw is offered. Be prepare to pay $2 for a small serving of fries. Service is great! Wonderful selection of beers.
