“The grub and beer selections make up for minor shortcomings”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Let me begin with the "good"- We were worried about the size of the menu, there is so much to choose from that everything can't be great, so we asked for help. Our server recommended the pretzel bites for our app. And they were a tad greasy, but overall okay. We tried the black and blue burger and pub burger, cooked medium, and were not disappointed. Juicy, thick and tasty! The price was average for that type of rest. I think burgers were $10 each and they do have a happy hour from four to six on some beer selections. We came here two days in a row because you can walk to it from several hotels (I think it was a quarter of a mile for us), but we only drank the second day. The male bartender was awesome...friendly, attentive and made us feel like regulars. Our only qualm was with our initial bartender that day, which granted it was only 3 pm but we still expected a certain level of service. She didn't seem too concerned with us and I sat with an empty bottle for probably ten mins. When there were only three other guests at the bar. I also heard her make a snide comment to another emp. About a guest on the other end of the bar. Thank god the nice bartender took her place! When he came in, the atmosphere completely changed.

“A little Irish tradition in the heart of Ohio”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

I really liked this place and have been back twice so far, never had a bad time. The beer selection is pretty awesome with a bunch of beer on tap as well as a good international stock in bottles.

The food is pretty good, but you can tell that the Dingle House is all about the beer and drinks. I've had the meatloaf (which was pretty good, the vegtables that came with it were suspect though) and enjoyed it very much. the prices are pretty good and fairly standard. I will eat here again when I am in town.

“Not really a pub”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

It's sold as being a pub but, well, not really. It's more a sports bar that calls itself a pub. The food is surprisingly very good and it has a very broad range of beers including a very good tap Guinness and, for anyone who likes Guinness, not every pint of Guinness is good. This is. It's a good place to eat. It seems to be the "singles spot" in West Chester.

“Great Food and Hospitality”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

From the moment you walk in you know in a friendly place. The food is great, you have to try the fish, reuben sandwich and the creme brule. Staff is always fast and friendly. Bartenders Rebecca , brice and Christian can set you on course for all the different irish beers.

“Great Pub with awesome beer selection.”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

Recently went to the DH with friends from work for a 50th birthday drink or two. The pub was crowed as usual but the service was great. Everyone received their drink quickly and the server checked back often to make sure no one was empty for long.
The beer selection was off the hook with many craft brews on tap and in bottles, Of course they have the usual Irish fare but more in the pub grub class than fine dining. That being said, almost everything we tried was very good. One of the best things about the DH is the staff which was as friendly as anyplace I've been in a long time. I felt like a regular customer.
So, next time you're looking for something new in West Chester, try the Dingle House. As someone else reported it is loud, but folks, it's a pub.
