Fabulous LIVE music on the pub side and the restaurant serves a full menu there too. Good choice for some Irish Whiskey or brews. We had great time with friends grooving to the music. The serve was excellent and delicious dinners.

Love to go to Lahinch for weekend lunch and order the full Irish breakfast - simply the best anywhere. Great service by Mara, Sharon and Zach. Fun to sit at the bar and watch sporting events on the big screen TVs.

Honestly not great. The food was just mediocre at best. It was greasy and the value didn’t match the quality or the portion. Everything had a layer of grease and tasted stale. I came before the pandemic and it was really good, but something must’ve happened because it’s not worth coming. The service was poor, our server was lazy, unkept looking, and he didn’t seem to care to be there, and the runner did most of the work. I probably won’t be back.

We met some friends there for dinner Monday night. And listen to music. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves as did we. My husband and I had the crab and artichoke dip appetizer it was delicious. I also recommend the barbecue brisket sandwich.

Have been a customer there for years and have noticed the improvement in the overall quality of their food and service - even during the recent pandemic! The overall ambiance of the venue depends on the quality of the live music entertainment there at any given time. Recently enjoyed listening and dancing to a local act "Trademark", Montgomery County's best classic rock variety band.

This place was touted by OpenTable as some place you must visit this summer. I'd have to disagree. While there was nothing wrong, there was nothing special about this place.

Really enjoyed our first trip to this restaurant. Although the menu wasn't extensive there was plenty of tasty possibilities. My wife ordered the salmon and lentil risotto, which was well done and delicious, and I had the chicken club, also well done. Nice cocktail options too. I would have liked to see a more extensive beer list, but I did have a local IPA on tap. There was a band playing while we there, which we enjoyed a lot but definitely was easily heard all over. We will go back for sure.

Excellent Pub Style Place, greatly enjoyed by English Style breakfast, kids loved the bacon and pancakes and my partner enjoyed her meal of crabcakes. We were majorly late and the place was extremely helpful on a very busy mothers day. I will definitely be back for a lunch or dinner soon too!

Love this place! We travel from the Tysons Corner area to Lahinch on weekends to enjoy the best full Irish breakfast anywhere (thank you, executive chef / co-owner Ted Hughes), accompanied by great service at the bar from Sharon & Zach.

Drinks are nice and cold, service is very good/excellent, place is nice & easy to get to although parking is bad. Real issue is that the menu is not really Irish. There are a few Irish choices but also lot of Mediterranean and some just odd.
