    Waited 25 min for 1st beer order. Waitress said the bar was backed up really busy (this is a Sun. night btw), yet the adjacent table ordered bar drinks after us and served before us (different waitress). Then was served wrong type of beer when it finally arrived. Questioned it and waitress said they were out of what we ordered!?! 20 min after our meal was order she came back to tell me they were out of my ahi tuna appetizer. Another table nearby we could hear the same being told to them in that one of the items they ordered was no longer available (that's three items if you're counting). The food was good, but the slow and inattentive service really made for an unenjoyable experience. Seated next to kitchen doors no good either.

    Met long-time friends for our annual New Year's Eve dinner - had a great time. Great food, great service and because we were there quite early, it wasn't noisy! But the "younger" crowd was starting to come in and I'm sure the energy level and noise level increased after we more mature folks left!

    We were there on a Friday night and it was very loud, but we had a nice little booth in a back corner. The food was good, not great. We wanted to check it out because we had just been to Ireland a few months ago and also a friend recommended it. The menu was comparable to what we had in Irish restaurants. The food was similar. Our waitress did a great job. This would be a great place to go with a large, rowdy group.

    We went here with some friends and their family. Good food, good atmosphere. It it has a rustic pub look/feel about the place. Food very reasonably priced, and good selection. We ordered the Spicy Potatoes, which you need to try if you like potatoes and buffalo wings; the Potato Leek Soup, which was very tasty, and the Boxty Chicken Quesadilla which also did not disappoint. Will definitely go back, and seems like they have a lot of fun events such a beer pong mondays and trivia game wednesdays.

    Dined on 7/15/2013
    Craving pub grub, I usually go to the Ship Inn in Milford, NJ. Saving 45 minutes of driving, I found Dubh Linn Square satisfies my cravings. First plus-Guiness brewed in Dublin, not Canada. Second plus- Imperial pints, not American. Of course, the the food is really good. I enjoyed the bangers and mash and my two friends enjoyed the fish and chips. I was fearful of this being an American Irish-themes bar, but this Pub is very much the real thing. I am a little familiar with Bordentown, but this was really easy to find. I Can't wait to return.

    Great food, good service, need earplugs if you expect to really enjoy yourself. Way too loud inside, trying to carry on any conversation other than sign language is impossible. I have seen this complaint on other reviews so I would expect the management to take this issue as something that could help the business flourish.

    Food was just okay. Good wine and beer selection. Pleasant and very amiable server. But, music/noise level was much too loud. Almost impossible to speak over it to the person sitting next to you. After we ate our dinner, the four of us couldn't wait to leave, just because of the noise level, otherwise might have stayed for another drink or dessert/coffee. Everyone in the restaurant trying to speak over the loud music made it almost unbearable to be there. We brought friends who were from England, so they could enjoy a pub, but although they liked the food, they said you'd never find a pub that noisy across the pond... so none of us will probably return again because of this.

    Brought a few out of towners for dinner and they loved the food and beer list as much as we do. Our table was upstairs which is very cute but loud. A group was playing darts and yelling the whole time making it hard to have a conversation. We moved downstairs to get away only to find there was live music. So it's definitely "energetic" but not great if you don't want to shout all through dinner. Needless to say we'll be back!

    W frequent Dublin Square a lot. We always have a great time when we go because the bartenders especially know how to make sure their customers are having a good time!! This time we went for my husbands birthday with his family (table of 6). We were seated upstairs right away. The only negative feedback from this visit was that while our waitress was super friendly, she was often missing because she was having a full conversation with the table next to us and was standing with her back towards us so often we couldn't grab her. Luckily, another waitress was bringing us another round of drinks and she had no problems getting us things we needed for the rest of our dinner! DS always makes sure you leave happily!
