Griffins of Kinsale was one of the highlights of our trip to Pasadena. I had the corned beef and cabbage and my wife had the Shannon salmon. Both dishes were cooked to perfection and very tasty. The owner was a great host to us and...More

Great environment, food, beer & music. Great service too! Loved the bangers & mash, also had the delicious shepherd's pie. Found a new favorite beer & it's on tap, Kilkenny Ale, yum!

I had great hopes for a good Irish Pub in the area but the three times I've been there I was so disappointed. In chatting with the owner I was given the impression that this is his "toy" and he really isn't into presenting us...More

When it comes to the old neighborhood hang out, Griffins is hard to beat. Great choice of libations, including Guinness Draught and some rare tequilas. Very unique selection of authentic Irish specialties like Griffin's Wings , Cabbage Dogs, and, of course, their famous Shephard's Pie....More
