“Pleasant surprise while traveling through Madison!”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

While traveling through Wisconsin, my husband and I decided to try Erin's Snug Irish Pub, which was a short distance from the hotel we were staying in for the night. We expected it to be another chain restaurant (think Applebees). We received a pleasant surprise. I ordered a spinach salad with chicken, apples, blue cheese, nuts, and raspberry vinaigrette and my husband had the caesar salad with steak. Both salads were very good. They were accompanied by delicious rolls, served with an herbed butter. The service was friendly, prompt and competent. We would return while traveling this way again.

“A Wee Disappointed”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Wanted to love this place, but it just didn’t happen. Stopped in for a late lunch on a Sunday. Service wasn’t great and neither was the food. Disappointed there weren’t more Irish specialties that could be order around for lunch. I will, however, give the place a ton of credit for the big, beautiful building, being so close to the highway and for the Strongbow on tap. However, it was a little to big to be snug;)

“A Wee Bit of Ireland Right Here in Wisconsin”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Erin's Snug Irish Pub is a beautiful restaurant with delisious food. Their web site claims that they are one of the best irish pubs in Wisconsin. That may be understated. It is a bueatiful restaurant with excellent food. It is clean and spacious. The interior is warm and inviting, from it lovely wood decor to the several large fireplaces.

We stopped there on a bus tour on our way to the University of Wisconsin Band Concert. The service was prompt and friendly. There were almost 70 people on the bus and I didn't hear one complaint about the experience. There were so many otstanding offerings on the menu. There seems to be food for every taste. I plan to return so I can try the Sheperd's Pie!

“Authentic Irish Pub”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Ordered a standard burger with sweet potato fries, which was a terrific meal in every way. Nice music and ambience, but not-that-friendly waiters and bartenders.

“Cut to the beer chaser...”
Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

Great place, nice atmosphere, good food. You have to pay extra if you want a beer chaser with your Bloody Mary. Make it free and I'll give them a 5!
