Before or after, a Sabres game, or Bison's game this is a great spot for meeting friends for a cold one or a bite to eat. Friendly, fair prices, clean etc...

We were in town for a concert and came across this place to stop and have a beer and a quick dinner. Staff was very friendly and made you feel at home. The food was good. Prices were not bad either. If ever in town again we would go back.

Go here every time I go to a Bison's game. the beer is reasonable, cold and refreshing. The server is fast and the food is good and large serving. They provide free popcorn to get you into the baseball game mode.

Right across the street from Coca-Cola Field, the Irish Times offers a variety of beers on tap and in bottles for reasonable prices. While there is plenty of seating, this "order at the bar" atmosphere encourages lively interactions. It is a great place for a quick drink before the stadium opens and a great place to celebrate a Bisons win... More

Went here instead of the Washington Square prior to a Sabres game, because we thought we would try something different for a change. BIG mistake. Drinks, well you can't really screw up bottled beer. But the food? It was bad, and both of us felt awful afterwards. We ordered nachos as the picture looked great & there were tons of... More

The Irish times is a very cool pub. It's directly in front of the Coca-Cola Field and super near to the greyhound station, so if you have to wait there just step in. The bartender is just awesome, if he's gonna visit Germany my door is open. Highly recommend this place! Tim

Four of us stopped here prior to going to the Bisons game across the road. We had wings, shrimp in a basket and pizza logs. All were good, but especially the pizza logs, which are home made on site. The wings are your typical Buffalo wings - delicious anywhere. There is a good selection of beer on tap and by... More

Located right across the street from the main entrance into Coca Cola Field. We went for supper before a Bison's baseball game and chose it because because of the location.
