My 2 granddaughters and I enjoyed lunch at the Dublin Pub, recommended by someone on the street when we were looking for a place to eat. Nice atmosphere, good food, and friendly service. Located in downtown Springfield.

“Absolutely the worst”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We had a group of 46 and they had known we were coming for at least two months. When we arrived there was no area set up for us. They then scrambled to find us places to sit. We were then waited on by ONE waitress. She took our drink orders and we probably waited at least 30 minutes for drinks. Then there was another long wait for her to take our dinner orders. After another hour we were finally presented with our food, 3-4 people at a time. We were almost completely done eating when we told them that one of our members had not been served. The orders had come out so sporadically that we just thought it would still be coming. When the lady made the reservation asked to speak with the manager, he would NOT come out and speak with us. They would not comp any portion of our meal. We finally left the restaurant 2.5 hours after we got there. The food was not that good and most of the orders were cold when we received them. DO NOT EVER GO HERE TO EAT!

“Worst Service Ever”
Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

Made a reservation 2 mos. prior and 1/2 the party was seated in the bar. Waited 1 hr. 45 min for food and still not everyone was served. Manager only made excuses and offered no compensation and that was through an asst., he refused to speak to us personally. Most of the place was empty and it still took that long. Have never been treated so rudely in a place of business.
