Went with 3 girlfriends. We all enjoyed our food. Fish & chips, fish tacos & chicken soup w/ tiramisu for dessert. We had a private nook to sit in so we could laugh & talk without disturbing others & hear each other well. Our waiter, John, was excellent. His food suggestions were on the money & he was engaging &... More

My husband and I squeezed in on a busy Saturday night for a quick cocktail while visiting Holland. The place was packed, in fact we got the last two seats at the bar, but the bartender was quick to serve us and I had a lovely Cranberry Ginger Fizz cocktail with fresh rosemary. Would return again in a heartbeat.

Food and service were good. When giving the waiter a $20 for a $12.18 bill, he gave me $7 back stating --'we don't worry about the change'. Sorry- but packing your tip is not the way to succeed. Two others at our table had the same issue, one did not get their $20 back from a $50. An 'oops' I... More

We return here each year when we're in Holland for our anniversary. We first came a few years back and my husband ordered the corn beef and cabbage. He shared several bites with me and i fell in love with it. Each year we come at least once during our stay and I order the corn beef and cabbage. It... More

I went to the Curragh a couple months ago and had a pretty bad experience, having to wait over an hour for our food. I wrote to management and their response encouraged me to try them again. I did, and I was not disappointed at all. In fact, I had a very good experience overall. The waitresses attentiveness, the food... More

Out of my party of 6, 5 of us got the fish & chips. It was very good, huge portions, a little greasy. The 6th person got the Shepherd's Pie & said it was excellent. They have a nice outdoor dining area right in the heart of downtown. We stopped here for an afternoon drink on another day & sat... More

Great corned beef, turkey ruebens, other sandwiches & salads. Pot pies not very full of substance, in my opinion. Nicely located tight downtown, near the new Marriott or Hoe College.

Have been to many "Irish Pubs" and this one is exceptional. We ate on the patio outside, which was very nice on a lovely evening. The inside was sooo cute! It would be a great place to dine inside as well. My husband and I both had the fish and chips which was excellent! Portions were large.

This is a simple Irish pub with delicious food! The best of it in my opinion is the patio dining area! There is nothing better to do during summer nights than dine at Curragh while people watching!
