Claddagh Irish Pub - Mason reviews from OpenTable diners
  • New Year's Eve
    Geoff
    Dined on 12/31/2013
    We were able to get a reservation at the last minute on NYE. Food was great but the music was loud, almost too loud to talk. Service was good, but they seemed at bit understaffed for that kind of holiday evening. Overall, a friendly and great atmosphere. Will be anxious to experience the restaurant on a more regular day,

    Made a reservation for 12 the day before and was put in a very nice alcove. Service was good and the food was very good. I had the beef stew which was a huge portion of meat with a scoop of mashed potatoes. It was enough for dinner and lunch the next day. Everyone was pleased with their order. The only downside (well more of a warning) is that the cost of drinks can be really surprising and not in a good way.

    We found the atmosphere was okay for a Thanksgiving dinner. The clam chowder was very good, the salad excellent, the turkey and dressing just so-so, the apple pie okay in its little cupcake pan. The waitress was very prompt in getting us a warmer place to sit than our original table.

    Who'd think of an Irish pub for an American Thanksgiving? A 4 course traditional dinner which was headlined by a wonderful corn chowder, one of the best I've ever had. There were a couple minor gaffes in the serving, e.g., I got no cranberry sauce. Did not complain as there was more other food than I could eat anyway. The dessert was a choice of apple or pumpkin pie. Both were very small individual pies. Just enough, really, after all the other food. The apple pie was good, the pumpkin really amazing. The atmosphere would lend itself to a variety of celebration types. Quite a surprise, but a very pleasant one. We'll definitely return for more traditional Irish food.

    We just moved from Georgia and don't have any family here. I didn't want to have to cook a big Thanksgiving meal just for my family of four. The food was good and the beer and apple pie was the icing on the cake. Everyone was in good spirits and od didn't have to clean up my kitchen! We will be coming back next year!! Thank you for making this a special meal for us.

    I had the fish and chips and it was awesome! Also, I got the beer of the month which was a Black IPA and that was great; AND the Pandora station they chose (Irish Pub Rock) put out some of the best music I've heard at an Irish pub yet.

    Really enjoyed Claddagh Irish Pub in Mason, OH. Good food and ambiance! Since I live in Florida, I always try to have dinner at one of the Claddagh's in Cincinnati. Wish there was one in southwest Florida. Open Table was easy to use and our table was ready when we walked in the door.

    Dined on 9/12/2013
    We had not been to Claddagh for a few years. Was happy to see the corned beef & cabbage sandwich was still on the menu, and still delicious. My husband enjoyed his fish sandwich. The only thing we noticed about the food was the portions were not as big as in the past....but that was just fine with us! Our server was excellent. The only complaint would be that when we checked in the hostess said she could not find our reservation! When I told her we had made it on Open Table, she looked at us like she did not know what we were talking about!

    Great spot for large group (of 8): ould have typical items like fish 'n chips but others had salads, turkey wrap, chicken dish, etc. Very friendly servers. Side salads are huge considering they're an included item w/sandwich or entree. Everyone liked having many choices of a side like mac & cheese-salad-potato item included in price. Food served hot & all at one time & everyone satisfied (some had to take portions home - large portions especially fish 'n chips). Only minor issue was that it took a bit long for a lunch hour but group did wait a bit to order. Overall tab was less expensive than other places in area. Hope to see it more crowded so we keep this place for future lunches or after work gathering -- & we will be back.

  • Fathers Day Dinner
    Chief
    Dined on 6/16/2013
    We had been to the one in Newport years ago the portions seemed bigger that was the reason my wife and son split their dinner, and left hungry. There were no complaints about the taste or how it was cooked. I was on line and noticed they had ribs so I was looking forward to getting the ribs only to find out that they changed their menu. This was on Sunday so the beer was 2.50 a pint. I was impressed with that and their selection. My son ordered chicken tenders as an appetizer and my wife and I ordered salads which were vary good.

    Having eaten at Claddagh on several previous occasions and being very happy with both the food and service, I had no hesitation in making a reservation for Mother's day. Oh dear, what a disappointment. They had made it clear on booking that they would be operating a buffet for lunch, which I thought would not be a problem, but the quality of the food was no-where near their normal standard. I will be eating at Claddagh again, but I will make sure that it is when they are offering their regular menu.

  • Mother's Day Brunch

    Dined on 5/12/2013
    We went to the Mother's Day Brunch on May 12th and it was outstanding. We were seated immediately in a nice large out of the way booth. We had a 2 year old in the party so this was perfect to keep her between her mom and dad. We were greeted quickly by our very efficient server and ordered coffee and milk for the little one. We proceeded immediately (via a nice shortcut by our booth) to the buffet. Food was delicious (omelet station and carving station) were particularly good. Good choices of salads, fresh fruit and other dishes plus a wonderful choice of desserts. Our coffees were kept full. Very happy with our choice.

    Food good and service good, but place needs a makeover. Seating arrangement poor with tables arranged side by side so just too close to other diners, a lot like Cheesecake Factory which I don't care for either. Diners like booth arrangements vs tables crammed together. Also noise level high due to large party of 6 adults and 6 kids seated in area with tables pushed together and kids getting antsy and running around. Don't know why restaurants don't keep separate rooms for the "gangs" that insist on dining together

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 2/14/2013
    My husband & I had the Valentine Day Special, 2 appetizers, 2 entrees & 1 dessert to share. The meal began with delicious appetizers-spinach & artichoke dip & the Yuengling Battered Shrimp. My husband got Gaelic Alfredo & I got Dublin Chicken. When I ordered, our server told me it was a good choice. I commented that I liked to hear that from a server when I order food at a place I don't frequent very often. He must have lower standards. The spinach was so bitter & seemed to be a mix of raw and slightly cooked & I couldn't eat it. The chicken was rather bland, not what I expected after my server's comments. Our Warm & Tipsy Bread Pudding was not warm throughout. Our server didn't check in with us very often. Very disappointing overall.

    We visited with our eight month old daughter. There was plenty of room for the high-chair and the staff was very friendly with her. The food was delicious, served hot and was very affordable. We ordered an appetizer, two entrees, two sodas and dessert and the bill was only $50. I expected the prices to be much higher than they were. The atmosphere was great, the food was authentic and the staff was amazing. We will definitely eat here again if we're in the area in the future.

    Food in general is good. I had the grilled salmon and my gf had the clam chowder soup and the yuengling battered shrimp. No complaints here. Our server provided good service too. The only complaint we had was that the busboy was showing up with his tray to pick up whatever dishes we werent using several times throughout our meal placing his tray on our table and the tables next to us. The couple next to us left their table for a moment and he took his drinks. So they had to reorder when they came back. We felt this was rude and disrepectful but ultimately comes down to poor service. I like Claddagh but that is the only part of the service that ruined the experience :/

    Bad dining experience. Had reservations but was seated at a high top at the bar. Had to request move to dining room which had plenty of open tables. Fish and chips were at best fair, but beef stew was terrible. Nothing but gravy on a huge pile of mashed potatoes. Only had 4 very small bites of meat and almost no vegetables. Only positive is a decent beer selection. Might return to the bar, but will not dine here again.

    The food here was actually very good considering it's a pub! I had the beef stew and it was delicious. My dining companions both had the fish and chips and said that it tasted very good but there was too much breading. The homemade home fries were DELICIOUS!

    We got there at 6:45 on a Friday night and the place was not crowded. We ordered the onion rings for an appetizer. They were great. Our meals: dish and chips were huge - they could have served two and were cooked perfectly. Meatloaf was huge and was served with mashed potatoes - also cooked to perfection. Cod special was a small piece a fish - not even 2 ounces and cooked for a person who likes no spices. It was so bland! it was served with green beans - very good and the mashed potatoes - again good. The service was good. They also don't serve any rolls or any other sides with dinner. The wine list and beer list were very good. I don't like fried foods so if you want fish - go somewhere else

    First, they couldn't manage to get the reservation right. We reserved a table for 5, they kept asking if we were waiting for someone else, bringing extra silverware, etc. The food was mediocre at best -- the pork loin was dry and the before I'd had 2 bites the glaze had hardened into a shell I would have needed an axe to cut through. One member of the party didn't get his soup until after the entree was served, and after the waitress dropped off our entrees, she never came back to see if we needed more drinks, etc. The band was good. Too bad we couldn't get a beer to enjoy with it.

    Our reservation was apparently "lost" so other accommodations were made. We ended up sitting at the bar but not a good view of the band as requested. We were also seated next to the pathway of all the servers so we were constantly jostled and bumped by servers and patrons, as well. We like the Claddagh and will continue to attend when our favorite Irish bands play in the pub. Extremely disappointed in the "lost" reservation situation.
