I say out on the balcony, which was very nice. The food was delicious, with many recommendations made by the waiter. Very friendly staff. I will be returning to this restaurant on my next trip to town.

Irish Bread is a nice wonderful restaurant. Can take your family or just friends. Good food and great service everytime we have been there. Steak is outstanding. Yes it is small for large groups, but if you can get over tight quarters for a large group its wonderful. The prices aren't bad for the meal you get.

My daughter and I tried this Pub because of one in Lanett was awesomelike. I only wish that this restaurant was as good as the other one. We had to wait forever to get seated. They didn't have anywhere for overflow to sit so we stood for an hour. Their bar is upstairs didn't want to walk so many steps... More

Had heard this was a very good place but can only give it an average. It was crowded and my party didn't have a lot of time so we ate at the bar. Food was good, but nothing other than average.

Outstanding food. Steak is fabulous. Great service.Plenty of room if you have a group. They will accommodate some how. You can also enjoy eating outside when the weather is nice

We have been here several times over the past couple of years. The food is good, but not great. The lunch specials are better than the regular menu items. It is very noisy and service is usually pretty good. The house wines are not very good and are not cold enough.

Stopped in for lunch and discovered this gem of a place in this historic setting. The history alone on this establishment is worth the visit. They have a nostalgic upstairs and their menu offerings are tasty. I tried the fish & chips and found it quite good. This looks like a popular place. It was getting crowded for Monday lunch... More

I used to love this restaurant but every time I go it gets worse and worse. The service is horrible to the point where the hostess told us to wait to be seated and disappeared into the kitchen while the Dining Room was empty. I can understand why their waitstaff quit. No one at the table had a complicated order... More

We stopped in for dinner. The Shepherds pie was great, but burgers were just ok. Grilled Chicken sandwich was supposed to be on a roll but came on toast. Overall service was great when we had his attention. A large party came in and the server split with another so service was painfully slow (though admittedly he was working hard).... More
