Stopped by after work w a f I end for a few beverages. Jerry began our visit and Ron closed it out. Both provided excellent and friendly attention. The Blackthorn is a great local post and by the crowd there for dinner, I would suggest a big favorite as well.

Went here two days before St. Patrick's Day in search of corned beef and cabbage. I found the best I have ever eaten. I was so happy. The beef was not fatty at all, which is unusual for corned beef. All meal components- beef, boiled potatoes, carrots and cabbage were all delicious and plentiful. Service was slow, but hey, it... More

The waitress - Megan was very helpful and attentive. Had the beer and cheddar chowder - very nice. The corned beef sandwich was good, but the rye was without body. The jalopena tater tots were good and worth a try. Very old historic building, comfortable.

This restaurant has been featured on Diners, Drive ins and Dives, but what you don't hear much about is the salads. When I want a filling entrée salad this is where I go. I absolutely love the Steak and Vegetable salad. This comes with drilled Beef tenderloin tips over greens with grilled peppers, onions, mushrooms and broccoli and then topped... More

We remember our last couple of visits in the past few years was quite nice. People were warm, service was quick, food quality was quite satisfactory. But then the recent visit in December was just ok. Place was quite empty, service was slow, and food were mostly just alright (quality/quantity were not as good, yet price was not low). Not... More

We are from California and were lucky enough to find this locals place and really enjoyed the food here. We both had beef dips and liked them a lot. The prices were reasonable and the service was really good. It is a place we would go back to if we ever came back to Buffalo again.

I have been here two different times and been very happy each time.Love the atmosphere,food,and service! It's the perfect place to go on a wet,rainy day. You walk directly into the bar area where its all dark wood and dim lights. Walking past the full bar with people drinking and eating, you go up some steps and are greeted immediately... More

The atmosphere was nice. Very much a part of the neighborhood. Everyone was nice and the service was good. However, wasn't impressed with food. Beef on weck was dry. French onion chicken could have left out chicken and added more mushrooms. Grandaughter enjoyed her chicken strips and fries. Our appetizer was very good, stuffed banana peppers.
