“Downtown Bismarck ND at its best.”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

A crowded and fun place to spend Saturday night. Lots of good beers and mixed drinks. Tasty appetizers or full meals at reasonable prices. Try it out with friends or family.

“Always friendly staff”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

The bar tender was knowledgable and the food was great. The menu is a pretty basic pub menu, but the quality and attention to detail in the food is very hip and up to date for North Dakota. I have a hard time finding "flavorful" food in restaurants here in NoDak, but both visits to the Blarney Stone provided adequate but not excessive portions with a delicate blend of seasonings appropriate for each dish served from appetizers to main course.

“Ok food-Ok Service”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

Stopped here between medical appointments for lunch. Didn't have a whole lot of time (about 45 minutes), waited for awhile and nobody came over to greet us/bring us menus (it wasn't busy). The bartender (very nice) saw this and brought our menus and drinks and was more our waiter/server than our actual server. I had the Smokie O'Leary burger. It was ok. Not bad, but not as great as the menu made it sound. My husband had the Irish Mexican, thought it was ok also. Nothing bad about the food or service, just nothing that great to make us want to come back again either.

“Good food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Had the fish and chips and they were quite tasty, although, waffle fries instead of traditional chips was kind of a mystery at a place that pushes it's Irish so hard!
The staff was very friendly and accommodating, bringing beer samples and answering questions.
The atmosphere is nice. Great pub in downtown Bismarck!

“Great food and great atmosphere!”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Stopped by here on a Saturday afternoon for some grub and drinks... absolutely amazing! The staff were courteous, friendly and helpful when suggesting what food or beverages would suit us best. There's a great selection of in-house drafts to choose from, and there's a huge selection of food to choose from. We were lucky enough to sit by the garage door that they opened up by the sidewalk... perfect view on a warm end-of-March day. Will definitely be back the next time we're in Bismarck!
