Flanagan's used to be our "go to" restaurant because you always got great food and good service. The last 2 times the service/waitresses sucked. Last waitress had an attitude from the start and never check back in. One waitress we never could find so we...More

Spent a few nights here as an out-of-towner at an Irish pub with multiple TVs and a sports-bar feel. It didn't take long to realize that most of the people in Flanagan's new each other or were regulars, but it also didn't take long for...More

We came here after the Nascar Race to eat. Everything we ordered was delicious (boneless chicken chunks, burgers, quesadilla's and drinks.) And very reasonably priced. Chad was outstanding, handling the regular crowd plus the 15 people we walked in with!

Server, Alec, was excellent. We would ask for him first. Great food from Chef Adam's signature selections. Our group of 8 came from Willow Street, Allentown, Lancaster and Baltimore. This was our first Flanagan's experience. Loved it! The Nolt clan. 12/14/16.

We come here often. They have the regular menu and then daily specials as well. My boyfriend loves the assorted seafood platter, and I usually try different things. Most things have been very good. Staff is friendly. It gets crowded, so it's a good idea...More

Chef Chris is always tweaking the menu. It's a nice place to try all the things you've heard about on the food network but didn't want to pay $200/ plate. It's crowded on the weekends so reservations are recommended. Also has a full bar.
