Food is delicious. A little busy and a little load. Not romantic but it is an Irish pub. Will definitely come back. Guitar player was fun .

When you first arrive you will see why the name The Quiet Man rings true. Whether you are seated at the bar, booth or table, the atmosphere is one of good cheer. The food is excellent. It is served hot and tasty whether you order Irish or American fare. The Guinness served is the best around. After your first time... More

The food is constantly good. I prefer sitting in the dining room instead of the bar area. I feel the service is much better & friendlier. The Shepards pie is awesome. The fish & chips are very good too. I have had the steak , and lamb chops before for the price they were very good. Go grab a Guinness... More

The Quiet Man experience is in a class by itself. 38 years of serving delicious food and this restaurant continues to shine. GREAT food (“pub fare...elegant fare...and lighter fare”), wonderful ambiance in the bar (I love the bar and have not ever tried the dining room), and an owner and his daughter who really care about the customer experience. The... More

A quaint pub with an incredibly attentive staff. You can tell they want you to have a wonderful experience. Great pub fare but the menu is extensive with steaks, seafood and daily specials. A nice selection of Irish beers on tap with a great friendly atmosphere.

When traveling it's always tough for me to eat alone. Usually I will try to just sit at the bar if possible. But this place was very inviting. Small and cozy. And the food was just what it claimed to be. Real, tasty, and authentic. Try the fish and chips!

Great Irish pub with wonderful ambiance, great servers and bartenders and perfect for either dinner or drinks. Food is always wonderful and creative and inventive while still serving classics like fish and chips. One of the best burgers in Morris. and the quiet man steak beats out all the competition from steakhouses. Best crab cakes I've ever had and the... More

I have been going to The Quiet Man for years and the quality of the food remains superior. The soups are a bowl full of toasty warm comfort. The meals are fantastic. Don't miss out on dessert either! Finish with the best Irish coffee around.

My family stopped in on our journey back to upstate NY on December 26th based on the good reviews here. We weren't disappointed. I enjoyed the ambience: tin ceilings, a small bar flanked by booths, cozy, clean, and friendly. Some places with bars can be questionable for solo women but I would have felt fine coming here alone for a... More
