We used to frequent Ballydoyle every few months. Their service has really gotten bad in the last year. They never seem to have enough servers and the food takes a long time to prepare. There are so many other nice choices in the area that...More

Ballydoyle Irish Pub & Restaurant is a great restaurant for anyone who is interested in trying different foods. Its occasionally has live music for listening pleasure and is just an all around great restaurant.

My friend and I came here last night as we were parked right across the street. It was fairly empty. The server was nice enough but not overly attentive, and obviously did not check our orders when they came out. We both ordered a burger...More
