Stopped in for brunch today. Wonderful staff, waitress, food runner. Cold beer and as you know great location. We paid $44 for 2 eggs benedicts and a total of 4 glasses of non craft cheap beer. Beer was cold and delish but the food left much to be desired. I have eaten this dish literally hundreds of times at all... More

Tried Annie Bailey's Irish Pub and was quite impressed. Great friendly customer service. We were well taken care from start to finish. Great Experience. Very good beer selection and great tasting Chicken pot pie. Also tried the bread pudding for desert, wonderful. Very nice birthday dinner experience. You have to try a night at Annie Bailey's.

Annie baileys is within walking distance of the hotel where we stay so it's perfect for dinner after a long day. Seating is hard to come by, the place gets very busy on Saturday nights. We wound up sitting at the bar to eat and it worked out ok. The bartenders took great care of us and the nachos are... More

Nice place but gets a little crowded on the weekends. Their food is pretty good and the late night seen is always fun. Great for bar hoping with all the great bars right in the immediate area. Also a great place for authentic Irish food.

We've been going to Annie's since it opened and changed owners. It continues to serve up a great selection of food and drinks on relaxed friendly environment with friendly and attentive staff. There is a nice outdoor seating area as well. I would definitely recommend it.

While spending a few days in Lancaster, we ended up coming here 4 times due to the great staff, delicious food and selection of drinks. We happened to have come during their Oysterfest and therefore had live bands the entire weekend. Unlike so many of the "Irish" bars, this one had a real feel of the Emerald Isle. If we... More

Staff especially the door man (Zane?) was exceeding rude, this place didn't have much going for it in the first place over the last nine years I've stopped in. But if I am also to be harassed by the staff as well as deal with mediocre everything, I much rather from now on go to one of the dozens of... More

Joshua F, Owner at Annie Bailey's Irish Pub, responded to this review

Russell, gauging from your review, your barrage of reviews on other sites, and speaking to my staff, I have come to the conclusion that your distaste for our establishment stems from your own ability to act appropriately while intoxicated. By law, we are not able to serve visibly intoxicated persons. We take this responsibility seriously and either refuse entrance into... More

Enjoyed the Guinness, food was okay. We arrived at change of shift for the wait staff. This could explain why the Shepard pie was just barely warm.

I'm sorry you didn't have a fantastic experience at Annie Bailey's. We are proud that we pour our Guinness properly as well as keep it at the recommended temperature, pressure, and nitrogen/oxygen mix. Please give us another chance and I'm sure you're experience will be much better - we strive to be, but not always 100% from the line! More

Very friendly staff and great patio. The interior is keeping with Irish theme. Very clean establishment. This place is great for drinks but the food is average. My friends risotto was over cooked and blackened sole was charred. My flatbread was not very tasty.

Description
Just a few steps from the newly built Marriott Hotel & Convention Center, you'll find Annie Bailey's Traditional Irish Pub & Restaurant. It is Lancaster's only authentic irish pub and one of the favorite dining destinations in the county. Annie Bailey's is a pub for all ages and has become a staple in downtown Lancaster. We have created an atmosphere that you can meet here for Happy Hour with your co-workers and also bring your family in for dinner on a Saturday evening or Brunch on a Sunday afternoon. The menu offers the traditional Irish Fare as well some modern American cuisine. Our extensive beer selection has earned awards in the county and you'll find some great whiskeys on our shelves. The Pub is modeled in the Victorian Dublin style, which complements the Victorian-era building built in 1890 in which it is housed. This Lancaster landmark was previously occupied by the famous men's clothing store of Sayers, Scheid & Sweeton. The pub was constructed in Carrick on Suir, Co. Waterford and then shipped to Lancaster where it was assembled.
