We finally got to eat here after living just down the street for almost three years. I was excited to finally get to try what I was hoping was going to be very authentic Irish cuisine. The facade of the restaurant is typical country-store styling--it could have been a feed store in another life. Once inside you're greeted by more Maryland farmland charm--barn-like walls covered in ancient farming equipment. The seating was very comfortable.
The service was courteous and polite, but also slow and personality-less. The food was so-so. We started with the Cabbage wraps which were sorely lacking in corned beef (the world's most inexpensive meat!), but were mightily tasty. I then had the Shepherd's Pie. It was okay, but definitely didn't leave me dying for more. It was easy to stop halfway through to save some for lunch tomorrow (and cut my calories in half). My wife had the seafood salad. She said it was very good except that the shrimp were quite firm and rubbery. My son had the Fish and Chips and was very happy with it. I tried it and agreed that the fried whiting was very tasty. My daughter had the Medieval Beef Stew. Like the Shepherd's Pie, it was good without being great.
For dessert we chose to share the bread pudding. The portion size was very small and it wasn't that great. In fact it was a pretty big let down.
All in all this place was just average. Average plus an $80 price tag equals--we won't be going back. There are much better restaurants in this area to spend your money at.
