great Irish stew dish on the menu, the flavor is terrific with lots of lean meat and vegetables simmering in a delicious gravy sauce..Add the Irish bread and butter and you have a real winner!

We come here often for the good food and to watch the games. We like the big round table right in front of the big screen TV. The carrot soup is the best! It would be nice if they served their soups on designated days. Good food, good people. They need to get more channels...went to watch a game but... More

We brought our 3 year old and 10 month old. They offer mushy peas which the 10 month old demolished. The wait staff was super nice and efficient. The table clothes were plastic so we weren't worried about making a mess. The food was AMAZING we were super happy. I fully recommend the artichoke hearts, the bangers cheesesteak and the... More

My first impression was "cool, I found an Irish pub among all the restaurantes mexicanos in the area!" I ended up a little disappointed though. Yes, it had some atmosphere and a huge bar, as expected in an Irish pub. However, the food was only so-so and the servers seemed more interested in visiting with the local clientele and each...

The owners of this place are really top notch people. My family has been frequenting this business for about the last 15 years or so and love it just as much as the first day we stepped foot inside. It has two walls wide of tvs to watch whatever games are on at the moment. They have a full bar... More

We stopped in after a long trip and were pleasantly surprised. Hubby had the bangers and garlic mash with gravy. It was very flavorful and felt like home cooking. I had the Reuben with a side of homemade French onion soup. I was very happy with the corned beef and the soup was rich and yummy. A ground brown mustard... More

I haven't been to the Claddagh in about 6-7 years. In fact it has been so long I couldn't remember why. On Sept 6, 2015 I placed a to-go order. I ordered a Kobe cheeseburger for myself and fish and chips for my girlfriend. We live pretty close so the food stays pretty warm and fresh for the 3 minute... More

Very nice place. Walked in and sat right down and hey we're pretty busy the waitress was there as soon as we sat down to make sure that the table was ok for us. We had a couple of questions about some of the items and she was very helpful about them. The menu is small but a great variety... More
