Bartender made a Mai Tai even thought it's not on normal menu. It was pretty good. Food came out quick and the Mashed with cabbage was yummy.

We drive thru Ludlow often living in MA with a place in Vt. Am very surprised at the low ratings. Luckily for us we tried it first before checking the ratings. Parking lot was nearly full. We were greeted by a very personable young lady who asked if we wanted a high top or low table. We were seated immediately... More

It's wonderful to hear the service and food were both impressive, though I'm sorry we weren't able to impress more. I'll have to keep an eye on the slow service you mentioned, and I really hope we'll have the chance to welcome you in again someday. I'm confident we can really take it up a notch for you! All the...

We tried Reuben sandwich and fish and chips. Not too bad. Corned beef and cabbage rolls were worth to try. Our server was nice and many choices of wine and beer. Right next to okemo resort entrance. If you like Irish pub, this is a place to go.

We ate here on a quiet Saturday afternoon. The hostess seated us and brought water. There were a few other tables but it certainly didn't seem busy. After about 10 minutes the waitress took our order. After 10 more minutes someone else brought the drinks to us. After 25 minutes the waitress appeared and said, they were out of the... More

I'm sorry to hear that we didn't quite meet your expectations during your visit here. We know how important quality service is around here, so we're sorry to hear that the serving order, service time line, and burger preparation was a bit off. This isn't like us, and we'll be sure to look into this with our team right away... More

In a nutshell, the food was okay, service not so hot. Not enough personnel on hand made for a chaotic evening where we were seated and then procceded to wait for someone. One waitress came by, took our beverage order and then three other servers came by to take order(?). Our soups also arrived lukewarm, we sent them back for... More

It sounds like you caught us on an off day, and please know I'll be addressing these issues with my staff to make any necessary changes. Of course, it's my hope to... More

Reading your review, I'm concerned you didn't have a more fun time at The Killarney. I'm sorry it took your server a while to take your second drink order -- this is certainly not customary for us as we like to serve all our guests as quickly and attentively as possible. I hope to have you back again some day... More

Very good burgers, but when there are only a dozen patrons in the place, it should not take half an hour to bring a Guinness. Which it did, twice.
