Please note that 3 stars is "good" to me, not average. The service was decent. We had steamers, fried clams, coconut teriyaki wings and a chicken finger meal for my son (shellfish allergy). Everything tasted good. The steamers were apparently steamed with bits of chorizo....More

Some Irish standards are interspersed among some American fare, making this a spot that most everyone will find something they'll enjoy. Pair it with a Guinness and some music, and it's perfect. The food is consistently very good, lots of specials to give the regular...More

Went for the first time for dinner, had decent food, nothing overly amazing. Had the beef stew which was good but too watery. Will go back and try something else.

This pub was founded by a couple from Ireland and is now operated by their daughters. Having frequented several pubs in Ireland, I can say that the Chieftain is very close to an authentic Irish Pub. Food is good. The Guinness is properly poured. The...More
