“Great Food and Drinks, Plus Friendly Staff and a Fun Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

We'd heard that the Irish Pub on Washington was the place for New Orleans Saints fans to hang out after visiting training camp at the nearby Greenbrier facility. We went in hopes of finding other members of the Who Dat Nation (which we did), but stayed for the warm atmosphere, good food and super friendly owners and staff.

We had the Red Beans and Rice and a half Corned Beef and Swiss sandwich, both of which were very good. While I was disappointed that Hurricanes weren't on the cocktail menu, I did try two of the house specialties, an Italian Side Car and a Refresher with schnapps and ginger ale. Both were really good and reasonably priced.

Both owners made a point to check on us at our table, making us feel right at home. The pub offered a wide selection of beer, wine and cocktails, plus a good food menu. There is also a dart room, board games and live music for entertainment.

There seems to be a number of locals eating and relaxing, too, so I'm guessing this is a favorite hangout of residents and tourist alike.

“Huge Disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014 via mobile

Stopped in for beer and a bite to eat. VERY limited menu. Opted for what was advertised as a local made pretzel and stuffed roll. Received a microwaved, unable to chew mess! There were only two actual meal choices... Irish Stew or a Reuben....Skip this place!

“Jolly Irish experience--not to miss!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

The proprietor is from Ireland and has recreated a true neighborhood Irish pub feel. The selection of beers is excellent. But most memorable was the live music by Himself. He sings wonderfully, plays various instruments, and transports you to the Emerald Isle.

“Great Corned Beef!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

We went to for dinner & were happy we did. They have an extensive beer menu & a killer Bloody Mary! The corned beef was tender & delicious! The Irish Stew was thick & hearty & the Leek/Onion soup was incredible. The live music was fun & entertaining.
