Stopped in for a lunch and beer. Have to have a Guiness in a pace like this. Most everyone was on the outside patio which is great on a warm day but the tables next to the open windows is my favorite. Bar food is bar food but they do have good sandwiches. I took this picture of my loaded... More

Flanagans has great food, beer and atmosphere. The fish is awesome. The mushroom burger is great and the beer is always good.You can't go wrong with a visit to Flanagan's. The outside patio is always fun in nice weather.

We topped in the shaded back patio at Flanagan's for a beer and a light meal. The service was great. Our waitress made beer recommendations. Beer was cold enough to endure the heat. We had a burger, Flat bread, and Greek Salad. All was great. The flatbread is crispy with fresh toppings. Acoustic music was played by a one-man band.... More

In town to receive an award, great news! Date night, with the wife! "Let's try Flanagans!" Slow service, old folks not the prime customers. When dinner, finally arrived, the wife's pork chop, was so salty that you could not eat! Nice night, poor choice!

Fast and good service at first. Then they messed up my order and I waited over 30 minutes just to get my check and 15 minutes after I received my check to actually be able to check out. Wasted time!! I won't be back.

Thank Tony S
