Everything was perfect! Ordered a meal which was hot and desert was kept cold. Definitely would order again.

Really enjoyed my corned beef and cabbage. Nice restaurant and fun place to eat. The waitstaff was attentive and food fresh and well prepared. It is comfort food at its best. My wife enjoyed her Shepards pie also, it was excellent. Prices fair for California plenty of parking with a nice outside dining area,

The location of the restaurant is a part of a hotel that is in an unattractive area, and could use some remodeling. The menu was limited, and the food was not very good. The service was slow and not real friendly. I ordered the lamb stew which hardly had any meat, and was mostly tasteless gravy and no vegetables.

A friend of mine chose Brendan's in Newbury Park for her birthday evening. We didn't eat there as we had stopped for dinner somewhere else first. The atmosphere was loud and a bit exciting. Good place if you're looking for more a club like feel complete with dancing and bar games. If you're looking for a quiet reunion location, this... More

All their food and beer are excellent. My fish and chips last time we're plentiful and served hot. Sometimes have a hard time eating all of it. Congenial servers make eating there always fun!

Had an awesome burger and pint at this Brendan's. I also highly suggest getting the spicy chicken avocado as a wrap, as the sourdough can be a bit much.

Many of my family members drank and ate here during a wedding weekend. They had nothing but good things to say about the atmosphere and the food. At least 4 different groups ate there, and all reported excellent tasting food and a fun spot.

Food was exceedingly mediocre but the decorations and atmosphere was quite fun. This is a great place to just have a beer, a snack, and listen to music but go for dinner some place else.

We ate here after a big day of sight seeing (we were staying at the hotel attached - Palm Garden hotel). The bar staff were attentive, and able to offer assistance with drink types or meal requests. Though the times we visited (usually 5pm to 6pm), there seemed to be more staff than customers! The food itself is fairly authentic,... More
