I would say that Brannigan's is a great place to go and hang out with friends and family. It was loud so you have to go with the expectation of a typical bar environment. Don't go expecting to have a quiet dinner. I did go with a friend and we didn't have trouble hearing each other so it wasn't so loud that one can't carry a conversation. I ordered the Ruben and it was fantastic. I will definitely go again and order another. I would add that it's not a place to take the kids.
