We enjoyed our one visit to Claddagh's. At the time, we had recently moved to the area and were trying a new restaurant every week in order to get our bearings for out of town guests. The waiter was extremely nice and very engaging. We loved the inside decor~very much like what we thought an Irish Tavern would feel like. While I cannot even remember what we had to eat, we had no complaints and did vow to return someday after we gave the area dining establishments a first go round.

We went around 1:45 on a Saturday, after the lunch hour crowd had thinned out. We were seated immediately, and it took nearly 15 minutes to have a waitress even approach us (the host had to go get her). She took our orders, and 15 minutes later she comes back to tell my fiance that they are out of his choice, and he needs to make another order. She then disappears for the rest of the meal.

He had to go to the bar to get his own beer (the one he had placed an order with her for) bc she could not find the time to go and bring it to him. I had to flag down the host for a refill on my diet coke. When the busser finally brought our food out, it was ok.

She finally reappears to hand us the check and is not hasty in processing the order. WORST. WAITRESS. EVER.

I understand it was a Saturday at Newport Aquarium, but the restaurant was not busy due to the late lunch. I will NEVER be back there or to any other of their chains.

Claddagh's was my son's choice for his 40th birthday dinner. Seating was by an open fireplace with great view of a snowy evening on the Ohio River. Friendly service, good choices for ages ranging from 10 to senior. The grilled salmon on colcannon was perfection, others at the table enjoyed shepherd's pie, baked mac 'n cheese, and steak. Bourbon soaked bread pudding was the perfect ending to the meal. One hiccup: two of us wanted Pinot Grigio, but the manager apologetically explained they were out. He offered a chardonnay instead at a reduced price. The charonnay was acceptable but not our preference. Claddagh's did not, however, run out of Guinness.

Overall, a very nice evening. Drinks, food, dessert and tip for 6: $175.00.

The location is great overlooking the river, the dark Irish Pub feel is just what we wanted but waitress was slow and stand off-ish. Menu described things well and seemed like great selections but it came out sloppy in preparation and some meals were cold.

My husband and friend went here for Thanksgiving dinner and while the food good and our server, Matthew, was excellent, the customer service from the hostess and manager were not acceptable. We had a 2pm seating time for dinner and arrived about 1:50 and when they showed us to our table the hostess tried to put us up against a dark wall with no view of the river. There was an open 4-top table by the window that we asked if we could have that one and the hostess, very reluctantly, said she would go check. When she returned she said that that table was for a 2:30 pm seating but she could put us at this table (still behind the same dark wall but it did have two seats with a view). We said no we would rather sit here at this table by the window and you can put the other party coming at 2:30 at our table - she reluctantly gave us the table with a huge sigh. Our server came right away and took our drink order and while we were waiting for the drinks the other hostess and a manager came into the room and were giving us the look like they were thinking of moving us. Instead the manager cleans off one of the tables and dragged one of the tables (very loud and rudely I might add) very close to our table and then put a reserved sign on the other table -- was this really necessary? We were there until almost 4pm and they never did seat anyone at the table they tried to sit us at. I doubt that we will return to this place again because of the rudeness of the hostess and manager.
