Awesome surrounding being an old church and they have pictures all around showing people getting married there and such back in the days. Good Irish pub atmosphere and plenty of good food items to choose from including my favorite Irish nachos. Outside patio area for the warmer months and another building available for functions . Great Irish pub!

Our waitress was very helpful and friendly. The bear and drink selection was extensive. The food came in a reasonable amount of time and all three of us agreed the food was very delicious. The pot roast was cooked to perfection as we're the steak tips. I had a new dish, Jamaican Jerk Salmon that was excellent. We had no... More

This is an interesting venue - Irish pub inside an old church with stained glass windows and everything. Was expecting a little more Monty Python references inside. Food was good. Nice stop for lunch.

We've wanted to try this spot for a few years and finally decided to go. It was easy to find and there is plenty of parking. When we walked into the building if it wasn't for the stained glass windows I would never have guessed it used to be a church. It was small compared to the large catholic churches... More

Good food; plenty of beer choices; big bar; family restaurant also; only downside, cannot reserve a table. Can call ahead but your party has to be with you. Always packed, so there may be a wait. A Lot of comfort foods to pick from.

The Holy Grail is a fun, interesting place with good food. The setting inside an old church is nice and open. The menu items have amusing names, and there is something for everyone. Plenty of traditional Irish fare plus American pub food. Great Shepherd's pie, corned beef, burgers, and so on. There's a central bar and the place is kind... More

Although it was warm outside it was cold inside to everyone in our party of 6. Place is incredibly loud making it difficult to converse. I got the fish and chips. The fish was greasy and the fries were limp and not hot. Wait staff was adequate. Had been here once before a few years back and it hasn't improved.... More

We've been to the HG several times before so we knew what to expect. As far as the food, at least! What we didn't expect was how crowded it would be at 4:45 on a Sunday afternoon. We couldn't even score 2 seats at the bar so we ended up waiting about 20 minutes for table. W did have to... More
