Stopped in for lunch midweek. There was a party in the back room and the bar and front room was half full. Our first time here and were greeted and seated by a gentleman I think may be the owner. The waitress was very friendly...More

One of the few places that was open during a snow storm. It was so cozy and welcoming. We were seated next to the fireplace and our meals were outstanding. The view of the town from inside this cozy bar was a very picturesque.

Fun Irish pub in cranford, good food and a decent amount of draft beers, three from New Jersey. It gets crowded on the weekends for sports, and they have live music in the afternoon.

Excellent service, quick and efficient attention. The food selection is very nice and not all bar food. I had the Shepherds Pie which was amazing and Smithwicks beer was a great addition. Definitely recommend and hope to visit again as well as surrounding area.

Kilkenny is our favorite spot in town. Whether it’s for a quick burger or for something more formal the food and atmosphere always delivers. It always feels like you’re at home but with better food. The service is always excellent and the bartenders always friendly....More

I had the bison burger with a Kilkenny Beer. Great choice. The place is busy but we walked in at Sunday lunch time and got a table. Worth a visit.

I don't know about you...but I sometimes hesitate ordering a burger because I know I don't need all the calories that come with the fries. At Kilkenny House, you can substitute with a vegetable or a side salad. I chose the salad, and man, it...More
