Had a great lunch here with my teen son! Delicious tomato soup to start; I had the strawberry salad and he had the Irish Breakfast. Friendly service, real Irish vibe. Would love to go back for a pint!

Ate here last night. Was surprised how spacious it was inside. Fairly busy for a Monday night; entrees are buy one, get one half off on Mondays. Food was tasty and service good.

After spending the whole day over at the Naval Museum and Battleship Wisconsin, we needed a break. We happened upon Grace O'Malley's and it was a great stop! The Irish Coffee is authentic and the Guinness is on tap. Even though we hadn't planned to eat, the meat pie sounded tempting and tasted wonderful. Definitely a winner of a stop and off the tourist track yet only a block from the museums.

Stopped here for lunch today. Well, actually I stopped for a Guinness, but got some lunch, too. Guinness hit the spot, all three pints. I ordered a "Bundoran Burrito," a flour tortilla filled with pulled pork barbecue, chips (fries) and some coleslaw. It was surprisingly good. My wife got some beef, barley soup and a watermelon salad, which she devoured. All in all a good experience. Only bummer was that the bartender had little personality and was less than attentive. I had to remind her at one point she had started to draw me another beer and forgot to finish it. I still give the place an excellent rating and would go back in a minute. Reminded me of a trip to Ireland and Irish pubs we visited there.

This is an awesome Irish pub! The cod fish and chips were some of the best I’ve ever had. The lightly battered cod absolutely fell apart w tenderness. The “chips” are fat french fries lightly salted and oh so bad in an oh so good way! The “nachos” are a HEAPING pile of “chips” w cheese, bacon & jalapeños. The kids loved them. The hot pretzel app was also huge and delicious. The live music was an older Irishman who was very talented w his instruments and song. How he can remember all those lyrics is beyond me! Tip him well, he loves his job!! Our waitress, Morgan, was very efficient. Great customer service! This is a very family friendly place in the heart of the historical district of Norfolk.
