I've been here a handful of times since they opened and have good memories. Fish and chips are great. Beers excellent. I've been for SPD festivities and quite frankly it was fun but it's not my scene and I can't imagine doing it again. I...More

Guinness was the best thing. I had Corned Beef and cabbage it was very good. My companion had shepherd's pie He was not thrilled. It was 99% mashed potatoes. Bavarian pretzel was yummy. Enjoyed the atmosphere. We were seated on the porch surrounded by vines

Good daily drink specials. Spinach and artichoke app was very good. The outside patio was lovely. A very different type of atmosphere. Good service and reasonable prices

Friends and I stopped here to have a few cocktails. Bartender wasn't very friendly at all. First time I'd been there. I heard it was a cool place, worth checking out. Love the Irish Pub atmosphere in general but not this place. Hate being treated...More

Great location, happy and helpful staff, great menu, very romantic outside patio. Variety in menu from Irish selections to American standard fare, great desserts as well. There are other Irish bars/dining spots nearby. Have been to both. This is more genuine and less expensive.

Jenifer, i personally apologize for your food. The St. Patrick's Day festival is the craziest day of the year and we are stretched to the highest level. Still, no excuse for you not receiving the quality standards expected and deserved from the Galway Hooker. I...More

I didn't really see an "Irish" flair when I was there either, no "costumes, talks". I think it's more of a name but a great place to eat.
