Nice looking Irish pub themed restaurant that serves a full menu of salads, meat and fish entrees. Best known for the horseshoe sandwich, which is toast topped with a meat or vegetarian item, which is then covered in French fries, then topped with a creamy cheese sauce. Yes, it's heavy, and yes it's good. A "pony" shoe is more than... More

The horseshoe sandwich is a must-have. Texas toast, Buffalo chicken, fries and white cheese sauce. Hot sauce on the side. Yummy!

What can I really say other than the food and service were great. Had the horseshoe and it was great. Nice atmosphere and a friendly waitress all of the times I've been there.

We went to D'Arcy's on a Saturday. They open at 11:00 and we got there at 11:30. There was already a waiting list. We waited for about 15 min and were seated. Excellent customer service, very attentive server, "Amy", clean restrooms. My wife and I both had the Rueben. The thing was huge and one of the best I've ever... More

Wonderful casual atmosphere. Lots of family's were there for lunch. It was recommended by a local so we felt the choice was a good one. Got the pony shoe and it was more than enough and fabulous!

Our server was good. She was friendly and helpful. I tried their famous horseshoe with chicken. They boast an amazing homemade cheese sauce and yet I still was expecting ballpark fake-cheese. I couldn't have been more wrong. There's a reason these are famous here: their cheese sauce is fantastic. Though filled with regret thereafter for such an unhealthily choice, in... More

Darcys Pint continues to impress. Stopped in for a quick lunch, sat at the bar, waitress served me a minute after i sat down, and brought my horse shoe two minutes later. This place knows how to serve customers and make an excellent horse shoe. They bring the plate, and the check is right there with the plate, so you... More

Always great food. I highly recommend! It's not your usual restaurant stop. With a touch of Irish, there is a dish for every one. Great food and variety.
