We were in Kanturk for an auto supply and the bar was recommended. Certainly good food, the burgers are a bit pricey. But friendly service- and if you come in from out of town that means a lot. I hope Kanturk gets more business, the...More

Definitely won't be going there again. Food was terrible and so was service. Bob's is overrated in my opinion, lack of options in Kanturk might be the reason.
