Loved this place. Music, food and beer toped with friendly service. Tough to beat! Management is great!
Griffins of Kinsale was one of the highlights of our trip to Pasadena. I had the corned beef and cabbage and my wife had the Shannon salmon. Both dishes were cooked to perfection and very tasty. The owner was a great host to us and...More
