"Rob" was our server on Saturday, 4/16/2016. We had great service and we enjoy sitting outside when we eat here. The food is always good. We have had many menu items over the years and keep coming back when in town.

My husband and I shared the Ploughboy's appetizer. The corned beef, turkey and cheeses were excellent. We also shared a bowl of the Apple Cider French Onion Soup. A great onion soup with a touch of added sweetness from the cider. We are in our 60's and the appetizer and soup were enough for us to share, in fact, we... More

Curragh's has come a long way over the past few years. Today they have really good food (not just the usual bar food you find at other pubs), a decent selection of brews, a good wait staff, and no better place to have a relaxing dinner under the stars in Holland. Inside you can have a draft and follow your... More

Some of the best corned beef I have ever had. Menu has several traditional Irish dishes and also an assortment of other dishes. People were waiting for a seat on a Monday evening!

Had been frequenting this restaurant. Went on St. Pat's Day with another couple. Ordered drinks, appetizers, enjoyed those and then ordered dinner - followed by dessert and more drinks. During dinner was advised by waitress that the management might require us to leave after 45 minutes, BUT that we were okay. A brief time later we were told that we... More

My husband and I were frequent customers of the Curragh. We loved their Sunday brunch w/the talented Irish music accompaniment. We invited friends (another couple) to meet us for dinner and drinks on St. Patty's Day. We purposely chose to arrive before 4 p.m. to avoid the rush. Our table ordered drinks, an appetizer, four dinners, and desert. After our... More

The Curragh was one of the first restaurants I ate at when I first moved to Zeeland. Friends took me their for Sunday brunch so I could hear the live Irish music group. Menu has many foods and not everything is Irish, but there is good representation of Irish food. Servers are pleasant, responsive and food arrives hot and quick.... More

My favorite thing about Curragh is their beer selection. It is outstanding! Many bars have 6-10 beers on tap these days, but Curragh has more and they are good! We had dinner which consisted of an appetizer - baked feta. It was really good. I have had it before but it had been anew years. It was just as good... More

I love the Curragh....visit frequently. They used to have, in my opinion, such good food preparation, and quality food across the menu. I now am very limited in my menu choices. Shepherd's Pie and Cottage Pie have become 80% mashies and not much of the rest. Reubens are not consistant in ingredients and grilling...Breakfasts: you never know....don't know...mostly stop in...

Excellent service provided by knowledgeable staff. Seating is comfortable and in the summer months there is outside seating as well. Atmosphere is an Irish Pub but without the clouds of tobacco smoke. Dark wood paneling and Irish advertisements add to the experience. Magnificent selection of Irish food that is adjusted for the American palate. I have never had a bad... More
