“Irish history combined with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

The Irish food was great. The restaurant is decorated to show four aspects of Irish history. Ask your server to explain the decor.

“very ethnic”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

The food is good and the restaurant is very pretty, many items brought over from Ireland. The emphasis though is beer party!, not my style.

“Friendly and Relaxing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

As vegetarians from the New York City area, we were not optimistic about eating in Scranton. Yet, we were pleasantly surprised throughout our stay especially at Kildare's where we enjoyed a fine pub meal with veggie sliders. There are many beers on tap including local brews and those more widely available. The waitstaff person recommended a strawberry beer, but we were hesitant about ordering a class. When she brought the beers we did order she also brought us some sample sized glasses of the strawberry. The samples were very healthy ones. The place was quiet the day we went because the colleges were not in session; I am sure that when they are this place gets crowded so timing is key if you are not interested in hanging with the college crowd.

“Hit or Miss”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

Have eaten here a few times and depending on what you get it can be hit or miss. Onion Soup was great! Great beer choices!
Don't even try the Chicken Pot Pie. The filling was great, but phyllo dough was raw except for the top. Told waitress, which she kept apologizing, but didn't offer other options. I thought she would send manager over, but didn't. We had just flown in and were staying next door. Very tired or I would have pressed for the manager. Didn't feel like dealing with it. Not sure if we'll be back.
