Best fish & chips I've had in a long time. Nice atmosphere and convenient location. The prices were a little higher than the average downtown Minneapolis pub lunch, however the food was really good and the price may have been special pricing for St Patrick's Day.

After a work offsite a few of us were ready to relax a bit. We ordered a sampling of appetizers, and overall they were all pretty good - better than I had expected for bar food. Service was good. They were a bit sticky about combining tables so if you have a bigger group ask where to sit.

Kieran's is a very cozy, yet large, Irish pub with good pub food. I dropped in an a rainy/snowy Monday night and was greeted by a friendly host. They have a few different seating areas (at the bar, floor tables, booths, etc. I was seated in a little alcove with a fireplace in the middle which made it very warm... More

Stopped here on the way to the Eric Church show. Great location but super crowded before a show. I made a reservation for a table, and I was a bit nervous when we showed up with wall-to-wall people. Our table was saved, and we had a fun night.

Folksy, welcoming and busy Kieran's is a great place to have a beer or eat a meal or both.It is a bit crowded at peak hours, but good places are. Been here in winter and in summer. Outside dining is possible in the summer and I recommend it. Lots of local beers plus traditional Irish and American brews. Food and... More

Many traditional Irish dishes on the menu. My husband got the cornbeef and cabbage but I had to go with the fish and chips. VERY good food! Good atmosphere. Definitely recommend this place!

Stopped here for a late late dinner at 11:00 pm after the Badger basketball game. There was live Irish music which was amazing. We had the bacon tots! OMG! You must order them! I had the tomato basal soup and grilled cheese that was also amazing! Loved everything about this place! Would definitely go again!

Kieran's was one of my favorite places for dinner before a Timberwolves game, especially for their walleye sandwich. After last night, I'll find another place. There was nothing wrong with the sandwich, it was just not good. The bread roll that the walleye was on was thick and chewy, then they put coleslaw on top of the a thin fried... More

We hosted a rehearsal dinner here. The food was okay, but very expensive in our opinion. We also thought there would be more attentiveness from the management since we were footing the bill for lots of people. The experience was a little disappointing for what we paid.
