Decor typical of a real pub in Ireland, I guess the food also ... since I’ve always said the Irish can not cook. I finished my 500 piece puzzle when the food finally came out. My pierogi shaped fish were concerning as I was looking...More

Needing a place for dinner, my wife and I decided to dine at The Parson’s Pub and connect with my Irish heritage, at least the food part of it. It was a nice pub, and they were masterful in the art of cooking. Nothing there...More

Stopped Thursday for lunch. We had fish and chips, a hamburger, and a reuben sandwich. All the food was great. Service was top notch and all at a good price. Next time I'm passing through I'll be stopping for sure.

I’m not a huge fan of Irish food, but this place blew my expectations out of the water. Wonderful atmosphere and the food was delicious.

We split a bowl of onion soup, really good. I had shepherd’s pie and my husband had bangers and mash. Both were excellent choices, you wouldn’t go away hunger. The staff was helpful in my choosing between two items I wanted to order.

This Irish pub was actually better than the ones I ate at while I was in Ireland. Food was Irish but tastier than Ireland's food. Staff was very friendly. Atmosphere quaint. All that was missing was the Irish music. But if you go at the...More
