I've been to Brian Boru twice and wasn't crazy about the food either time, but went with friends tonight - St. Patrick's Day. Can't rate the food this time because we never got any. We arrived early for a 7 PM reservation, and left at 8 without being seated. A group of 14 we stood next to had a 6:30... More

I am very sorry we were not able to get you seated in a timely fashion or that our menu offerings were not to your liking. On a busy day like that we have always used a more limited menu, for better execution and quality, and we typically let our guests know when the reservation is confirmed, so my apologies... More

My husband and I have gone to Brian Boru on numerous occasions as a date night. The entire experience has been awesome! Their appetizers are absolutely to die for; you have not lived until you have had their potato cakes or corned beef poppers! the crab dip is thick and creamy and their pretzels with beer cheese is divine!

After having been here a few times for lunch finally tried the Sunday brunch. It was excellent. In addition to normal breakfast foods they had a nice selection of lunch items. Hubby enjoyed the fish as well as the Shepherds pie. Also surprisingly he liked the biscuits and gravy - said good and the gravy wasn't too salty. I had... More

My mom, neighbor, and I ate here on a Friday for lunch. The place wasn't crowded at all. There was only one other party in the restaurant when we sat down, so it was nice having the place to ourselves. We ordered the Wexford Potato Bites (potato cakes with Cashel blue, asiago, and sharp cheddar cheese and ranch dressing) for... More

The whisky tomato soup is excellent, highly recommend it and you can't go wrong with any of the meals. One of my favorite winter spots.

We have been patrons of the Brian Boru for several years. Coming to the restaurant is like visiting an old friend. They are friendly, dependable and predictable. No matter what you order, the food is freshly cooked, tasty and plentiful. The corned beef is melt in your mouth quality with no fat to spoil the taste. Our favorite afternoon meal... More

We have not been hear before but it looked inviting, so we pulled in. We were greeted by the host with a warm smile who said he was happy to see us----and it was genuine. And the wait staff was just as gracious and attentive. Not a common experience in most restaurants where you feel people are on automatic. We... More
