Nothing like a Guinness after diving and this place was the right choice to get it. Great music -not too loud- a variety of draft beers all the way from Germany, Israel and India...and Ireland of course !!

We stop in every night that we're in Crystal River. Fun place. Outside beer garden with cornhole and foosball. Inside is great beer and great music. Always a perfect pour. Guinness with a shamrock expertly formed in the foam. Half and Half is my favorite (Half Guinness and half Harp). If you ask, the bartender will probably explain to you... More

I went in this Irish Pub style place while in Crystal River for the Manatee Festival. They have the standard long narrow bar area & also have an outside back area that looked nice with tables. I did not eat any food there so I cannot comment. It appeared to be a standard type of local bar with a nice... More

Stopped at Burkes of Ireland with some friends and co-workers, and it was a very pleasant evening. Loved their selection of Craft beers and Ciders. I had the Seasonal Spiced Cider and it was delicious. Since we are a friendly group, I also had the chance to sip a few of the delicious craft beers that my husband and daughter... More

I love this place! The bartender working was fantastic and funny, the atmosphere is very pleasant, and the drinks are delicious! You will find some unique beers here to try among other flavors. If you want a good pace to stop, relax and have a drink....This is the place!

Woody behind the bar is a great guy to catch up with if you find yourself at this bar. Makes you feel right at home. Live music and special events (Turkey Testicle Festival) make this place a regular stop when traveling the FL Nature Coast.

My husband and I like to go to an Irish pub when we're out of town and were pleasantly surprised to find Burke's when we were in Crystal River for a fishing trip. They got the traditional look of an Irish pub right and the bartender was friendly and helpful. Live music at night was an added bonus. The only... More

Who knew? They actually make beer here! Small batch brewery, and these guys know their stuff. James the bartender was very knowledgable and friendly. We tried 4-5 of their beers. This is also a bar, serving beer and wine. They have a beer garden in the back and Sundays bring your dog!

Expensive. $6.00 for an 11 ounce cup. Very hot outside and no air conditioning, open through and through. Good ambiance though.
