“so-so”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

If you are a beer drinker this place is for you, but that's about all. There's no martini menu, and very limited food selection for a place that bills itself as a 'gastropub'. The onion soup had so much pepper I sent it back. The ribs were very good, falling off the bone. Service was mediocre, never did get the extra sour cream for the potato pancakes and the waiter had to be reminded to take the soup off the bill.
All in all, as we're not beer drinkers and are foodies we won't be going back.

“Excellent”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

I thought I had previously written a review but I guess not. So here goes. Excellent restaurant. Fish and Chips are great. Great taste. Chicken Pot Pie is the best. Puff Pastry filled with plenty of Chicken, peas and carrots. Moist. Served on champ. Yum! Guinness Beef Stew is also wonderful. Strawberry Short Cake is excellent. And a great addition is music. Traditional Irish Music. Popular Irish Music. Owners are very friendly. Come on down!

“Great music, good food, pricey....perfect date night spot”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

After reading other reviews, we thought this place would be perfect for our family of 6. We were wrong. Even though the food was good and we were able to special order chicken fingers and fries for the kids, there wasn't much else on the menu to order for the kids. Our mistake. However, my husband and I decided that if we had gone (just the two of us) this place would make for a perfect date night. The musician was very entertaining and the wooden booths were charming. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The steak was very good, as were the garlic mashed potatoes. Overall, a great choice if you are dining kid-free!

“Excellent pub”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

My family and I went on vacation to Siesta Key and not knowing any restaurants in the area, I bought a groupon for Pub 32. Wow, am I glad I did. Being from Boston, I have been to a lot of Irish pubs. This place is fantastic. Great food and service and the interior design of the restaurant is beautiful. We were on vacation for 7 days and ended up eating here a total of 4 nights. Can't wait until we head back on vacation next year. We'll definitely go back to Pub 32.
