We eat at the Minersville one all the time. I always liked it there, good atmosphere and staff was attentive. Last few times food went way down hill. New staff and need lessons on waiting tables and bartending. Won't be back

Never had a bad meal here yet! I mostly order wings and/or the surf & turf special. Parking's tough, but worth a stop.

Had dinner and beers in downstairs, stone walled cellar room. Very interesting history. Good Irish choices but many menu selections beside Irish fare if that is your choosing. Service was good. Restaurant and bar area upstairs was pretty busy when we were there. Lots of...More
