Salads were good but my cheesesteak was only fair. No obvious cheese and no onions or peppers. Meats was dark like yesterday's left over. Drinks were fine.

Went here for St. Patrick's Day. Really bad service, expensive food that was bland and boring. Good beers on draft but they were expensive. They had live Irish music which was very nice. I would say go there for an event or live music, otherwise there are a lot of better bars in town with much better, cheaper food, and... More

Service hit and miss and the food was very poor. 7 meals dished up and all were poor. Ok I guess for a drink and to watch sport but that's about it. I guess there are loads of other places to go.

My wife and I stumbled into this Irish pub (not literally) on a Friday night and sat at the bar to have a beer or two. Friendly bar staff who like to chat with customers (this is a positive). Our bartender made sure we were aware of the Happy Hour specials and let us "sample" as many beers as we... More

Honestly waited for our food for over an hour on a Tuesday!!! It wasn't even that complicated! Bangers and Mash, chicken tenders, and a chicken boxty. Their mixed drinks are $7 for drinks that didn't have much alcohol! They didn't even have an Irish Mule! You are an Irish bar! Very disappointed. The waitress did a horrible job by not... More

Friendly staff, great beer selection and delicious food. We enjoyed our evening meal at Kildare's. Great bar scene, with 3 separate bars.

Went here as a group of 9 for dinner during a business trip. We were able to get a table right away. Staff was very attentive and a lot of fun. We had hummus, egg roll special, calamari and pretzel appetizers. All were delish. We asked for dinner recommendation and the waitress recommended the boxty. For dinner, we had a... More

Somewhat typical sports bar. We had some nachos and beer and the service was good. A bit run down but has good character.

Stopped in for lunch with the family. My bacon BBQ burger was tasty, kids liked their Philly cheesesteaks, husband enjoyed his bangers and mash. Fries were nice and crispy. Overall, we had a good, solid lunch. I'd definitely go back. Wish I could go back for St. Patrick's Day. Looks like they had good drink deals lined up.

Located right across the street from the Radisson Lackawanna Station, Kildare's offers a wide variety of full entrees and interesting pub food. It is quite a happening place. Kildare's is touted as an Irish Pub, but there seems to be a wide variety of food here. The entertainment for later in the evening was a balloon drop with fun and... More
