We had a great time at the Stirling Hotel for dinner on Saturday. We ate at the bar since it was very busy. The bartenders were very friendly as were the other patrons. The burgers were good and the onion rings were excellent.

Definitely stop by for the outdoor ambiance and a beer when the weather is nice. The food here is average but the atmosphere makes up for it. Fun place to grab a drink after work.

Went here again about a month ago, ordered steak Tacos, three arrived. The filling in the three was barely enough for one! It will be a long, long time before I return. The prices are ridiculous. Other restaurants that have a far better menu and far better food (i.e. Rod's) do not charge as much. Not worth going here. It... More

Stopped here for lunch on a friend's recommendation on our way home from PA. Sat at the bar, great vibe, looks like a cross between an authentic Irish pub and a hunting lodge. Great craft beers on tap, had the mussels in a cream sauce, and jalapeño poppers, great time, friendly bartenders, we will definitely return.

We were in the area and I looked up the best rated eatery in the immediate area and this popped up as the best. The outside appearance was cool, like you're visiting an old time pub. You enter into the bar area and if your not familiar on how seek a hostess your lost. A bar patron told us we... More

So there's not much in this area, this place is always busy. They don't take reservations, so go early on the weekend, it gets packed! It's really a great family place, not inexpensive but good food. Outdoor bar in the back is charming and always fun. The staff is super friendly and everyone seems to love their job, which says... More

I have eaten at the Stirling Hotel Dozens of times over the years and always found the food and service to be far above average. A recent visit shows how far both have fallen. The Mexican corn was flavorless. The fried pickles were greasy. The skirt steak tacos were tough and lacking focus. While somewhat busy for an early Sunday... More

The pros: great family place for locals, the menu has something for everyone and leans more to gastropub than pub, the beer list is unrivaled, there are so many seating options - inside tables inside bar, outside bar, outside tables, outside tent, outside fire pit, summer beer garden tent.....and the burgers are killer as long as you get hem med-well...

Cannot recall what we ordered but I know we all walked away happy. Sat out back and it was super relaxed with great service. Room for kids to wander off a bit if you are ok with that.
