“Serving size has gone down”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Been over a year since the last time I ate there. Servicng size (fish and chips) had been reduced by about 35%! Before - 2 large fish filets, huge serving of fries. This time, 1 filet and less fries. On previous trips, finishing the plate wa snear impossible, this time I coleaned it off. Mabe it was a fluke, but my wife's seafood stew was more liquid than solid, too.

“Food is Good...Too Loud For Me”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

The Irish Cottage has a really nice, varied menu...Irish specialties plus pub food. Every meal I've had has been above average. Service is good as are the drinks. The only minus I have is the bands playing what Americans' perceive to be Irish music, played far too loudly during the dinner hour. I like to be able to hear what my fellow diners are saying and this can be difficult when the band is playing. I've only been for dinner...never breakfast or lunch.

“Amazing Onion Rings”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

On a last minute lunch decision, we met at The Irish Cottage. It was the first time having steak and cheese with onion rings. My lunch was one of my favorites. I cannot wait to stop in for a repeat experience.
