The server knew how to serve Guinness from the tap. Had recently been in Ireland and was impressed with their knowledge of waiting for the beer to settle, before second fill.

Brigid's Cross menu is diverse and has a great selection depending on you wants and likes. I had the special burger with caramelized onions, bacon, and blue cheese and sweet potato fries. The burger was done to perfection with just a wee bit of pink to the meat. The fries weren't hot enough for me but still tasty. The Nordeast... More

This pub has ample seating, including large tables that easily seated our 5 person party. The menu had great variety that met the needs of our group ages 12 to adult. The burgers were juicy and tasty, the walleye sandwich moist, and the grilled cheese sandwich lightly toasted. Fresh, made from scratch sauces including tarter! Justine, our waitress, was knowledgeable... More

Wanted to see what a real Irish Bar and Grill was like. I ordered lamb, but the waitress told me that they had just ran out of it. So I had the walleye sandwich which was quite large, and very tasty. My wife had the Philly sandwich with AuJus- very good. They had a band playing some Folk/Rock music. We... More

Looks like an Irish bar in New York. I was not impressedc. Service was dicey - my fish was very good, but my husbands shepherds pie was served only warm. I would skip this one for dinner.....

A local recommended this place to us and I love finding the places that aren't chains. We were there on a Monday night for dinner, so the place was quiet. There were only a handful of patrons. The gentleman behind the bar talked with everyone and was drinking Arnie Palmer's in honor of the great Arnold Palmer having passed away... More

We had the panfried walleye and colcannon potatoes and I can't stop thinking about them. Crunchy crust and the walleye and wonderful flavor in the potatoes with kale and garlic. Yummmm. And a nice atmosphere.

This is a great local pub with lots of Irish inspired food. I had a walleye sandwich which was very good, but I must say a very small fillet for $12. I was expecting more than that. Fresh Bemidji beer on tap!

Great Irish food. Husband had the Rueben and I had the beef and root vegetables over mashed potatoes pie. Irish beer was good. Service excellent. Prices very reasonable.
