Been going here for years and always have a great time. Great selection of Beer and Irish Whiskey. The food Is above average and large portions on most dishes. Live music on most weekends adds to the lively atmosphere. It is an older crowd in general.

Feel free to check my reviews. I usually do not write negative reviews of restaurants. This food is expensive and not very special. They could do much better by sticking to authentic beers and menu items. Salty, spendy, shitey.

Wait was minimal for a busy Saturday evening. Staff was friendly and attentive and food was good. Nice overall atmosphere with a very nice bar.

Went there on a Friday night. Everything on the menu sounded good. I had a hamburger with Irish cheese. My lady friend had a sandwich. Both were very good. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Absolutely love this place. If I am having trouble deciding where to go this is the place we ultimately choose. Fried green beans, good beer selection and a wonderfully huge plate of corned beef and cabbage.

We really enjoy Peggy Kinane's. It has really great Irish food. The only thing is - don't sit too close to the band. It is very loud. A fun place to dance, also.

We attended a graduation party on Saturday at this restaurant. The food was good and the drinks were okay. It was loud but everyone seemed to enjoy.

Peggy Kinnane's has a good menu with good variety. I often take guests here because I know everyone will be able to find something they like and I know the food served will be delicious. The serve staff is above average - friendly, informative, eager to offer assistance but never crowd you. I've also found it to be a good... More

Super family friendly (especially for St Patty's Day with Irish dancers, face painting, etc!) And a place we visit again and again. Peggy's has a large menu, but some of our faves are the reuben sandwich or anything with their homemade corned beef, Jameson chicken, patty melt and the shepherd's pie. Yummy Bloody Mary's and beer on tap like Smithwick's... More

Love this resturant's Irish vib. But the best part is all the great food options! All the Irish options are tremendous but there many American options as well. Great food, great ambience.
