“Have been back again and again”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

I have now been back to Dublin Square multiple times since my first review. To date, I have not had to wait longer than 10 minutes for a table and I was surprised since they have been pretty busy every time I've gone. Since warm weather has arrived, I have had the pleasure now of dining outside and have enjoyed the street atmosphere. It's also quieter than the definite pub atmosphere inside. Okay, so you just gotta try one of their corned beef entrees. It is so good! And they do a very good fish fry and we love the slightly spicy flavor. The servers have all been quite good. This is a fun place and is now one of our favorite local places to go.

Thank you for the review and the feedback WisconsinTarheel. First, I want to thank you for being such a loyal guest of ours. We work very hard to make sure that our guests have a memorable experience every time and want to keep coming back to visit us. We are glad to hear that you enjoy our corned beef dishes and our fish. We do use a unique recipe and that keeps our fish different from what everyone else is doing now days with cod. I will be sure to let our staff know your thoughts on their efforts to provide you with excellent service. Let us know what you feel we could do better or different to get a 5 star rating. We are always looking to improve and exceed your expecations. Have a great day!

Sat at the bar for a beer. Staff was friendly and helpful. Next time maybe we will eat here. Is located in the downtown area with many shops in the area.

“A perfect Irish flavor”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

While in La Crosse, my wife wanted some local fare so we went to the Dublin Square Irish Pub. The food was excellent. Deep Fried Irish Curds in a creamy Guinness sauce started the night. I had the Bangers and Champ and it was delicious. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the Corned Beef. A couple of cold beers (Guinness and Downtown Brown - local) and it was a delightful way to end a long day of travel.

“Delicious food, great beer selection, friendly service, and a great location makes it a winner!”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

I live in town and have never eaten here, despite hearing so many good things from friends. It is an Irish bar/restaurant so the atmosphere was just what I expected. Inside was clean and didn't smell like a bar and they have a super nice outdoor seating area, which is where I will sit next time.

Our server was perfect. We never ran out of beer or water. She was friendly but professional and knowledgeable of the menu.

Now, the food! I had the jalapeno cream cheese burger and my daughter had the Rueben. So outrageously good. Even the fries were a treat. I suffered from food envy throughout my meal, though. Everything that went by to another table, I wanted. Will be back to try it all.

“Good Burgers”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

The food was good, not much for atmosphere in the restaurant/bar.

Quick service.

Close to downtown area and major hotels, parking is difficult around the downtown area.

Thank you very much for taking the time to give us a review and provide your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your burger and the service. We have actually won Best Burger in La Crosse for two years running in the Second Supper Best of La Crosse survey. We are surprised to hear to didn't think too highly of our atmosphere because this is one ofthe highest praises we get in our reviews and from our patrons. Would be curious to hear what you didn't enjoy about the atmosphere. We are looking forward to taking care of you the next time you are in La Crosse. Have a great weekend and thanks again for the review!
