delightful place, wood on bars was imported from Ireland. Really a cool spot, they even have a rooftop lounge. Music and great food.

I sat outside for lunch two times in the last week or so. The first time I got my usual Wedge Salad which I usually love but the bacon was a little hard. Kind of odd. I think it may have been the rind? So,...More

Annie Bailey's used to be more Irish when it opened, but they've really lost the whole Irish portion of their persona. There really aren't any Irish bars around the area who are TRULY Irish pubs since they don't serve traditional Irish ciders or play Irish...More

Donna, I'm sorry to hear your views on our pub. Honestly, we serve the only Irish Cider imported into Pennsylvania (Magners) in both bottle and on draft and we host our Traditional Irish Seisiun every second Sunday of the month since we opened in 2006....More

Not very crowded for a beautiful Saturday. While the food was good, service on taking our order, serving our drinks and food was extremely slow. Not what I would expect for the small crowd.More

My sense of this place is that it has many, indeed most, of the right ingredients -- good location, good layout, nice selection of beers, decent food, but it doesn't quite come together the way it should. We went for lunch on a day when...More

Enjoyed a F&M graduation weekend in the heart of beautiful Lancaster and where I was staying was right next to Annie baileys. Fantastic Irish pub with a huge bar and diverse crowd.

Great atmosphere for a traditional Irish Pub!! We try to stop here at least once every time we are in Lancaster. Very good service and a good draft beer selection. The Fish and Chips are a must have.

It is a bar with loud thumping music and bland food. My husband ordered the Shepherd's Pie, which was pretty tasteless and I had the Fish and Chips which was totally tasteless. No salad or soup included. This is an overpriced poor imitation of an...More

Just a few steps from the newly built Marriott Hotel & Convention Center, you'll find Annie Bailey's Traditional Irish Pub & Restaurant. It is Lancaster's only authentic irish pub and one of the favorite dining destinations in the county. Annie Bailey's is a pub for all ages and has become a staple in downtown Lancaster. We have created an atmosphere that you can meet here for Happy Hour with your co-workers and also bring your family in for dinner on a Saturday evening or Brunch on a Sunday afternoon. The menu offers the traditional Irish Fare as well some modern American cuisine. Our extensive beer selection has earned awards in the county and you'll find some great whiskeys on our shelves. The Pub is modeled in the Victorian Dublin style, which complements the Victorian-era building built in 1890 in which it is housed. This Lancaster landmark was previously occupied by the famous men's clothing store of Sayers, Scheid & Sweeton. The pub was constructed in Carrick on Suir, Co. Waterford and then shipped to Lancaster where it was assembled.
