    It is exactly what the name implies--an Irish Pub and Kitchen. My friend and I went to have lunch in honor of her father who was Irish. While there are other dishes on the menu that aren't Irish, we had the soda bread and chicken pot pie. The pot pie was phenomenal! The ingredients were fresh and the sauce was delicious. The flaky crust that lies on top is like having a delicious pastry. There is an extremely large assortment of beer, but our waitress didn't seem particularly knowledgeable about them. However, she was friendly and so was the hostess.

    We enjoyed our dinner at Harringtons. The food was very good and the service was friendly. We ate in the dining room which had a moderate noise level. The bar area had a performer and the noise level was off the charts, we were very happy we did not eat in there.

    I would have given 5 stars for service, if they hadn't taken 10 minutes to come out and seat us. Once we were seated, all was good. It was pretty quiet for lunch, although I suspect dinner and late night could be pretty noisy.

    Harrington's has very good food and good service. I enjoyed the Lamb Stew served in a bread bowl - really good and I'll have it again. My date had the Gaelic Steak, which was somewhat overcooked - more Medium Well instead of the Medium Rare she ordered. This was a Wednesday night with a fairly small crowd. Overall, the food is very good.

    Little bit a victom of their own success, they were out of some items due the increased demand. I am sure that is a temporary situation. Food was very good, only complaint was they did NOT have Corned Beef and Cabbage for St. Patty's day!!! So, we had the next best thing, their Ruben Sandwitches were GREAT.

    Dined on 3/17/2013
    We went to Harrington's for St. Patrick's Day Sunday brunch. The food was cold and mediocre at best. The most amazing thing is that when you pay cash, the total is rounded-up because the restaurant has no change/coin! Though it was only a few pennies, it is the principle....no where is it stated that the till only has cash and no currency. Brought this to the attention to a manager-on-duty, and his attitude was curt and unprofessional. I wouldn't recommend this place to a dog.

    This was the second time. The first was a Friday, late into happy hour,2 of us,not very crowded in the dining section, but we were close so we could hear the music that started at 7pm.Food was good so we decided to come back. This time on a Saturday evening around 6:30,it was quite busy, with music starting at 7pm in the bar. We were farther back in the dining section, so could not hear the music, but that was ok, we were there for the food. Again,2 of us. The lamb stew and lamb French dip were excellent. There had been a large group near us for whom the kitchen was trying to get all the food out together,so some of our meal was a little slow, the server kept apologizing.Bread pudding wonderful, fresh made.Irish coffee,strong,as it should.

    First and probably last time we'll visit. Food was very bland. We ordered the Pub Fries to start and they were very thick potato wedges with no salt or seasoning; we expected actual fries (it was like they took big potatoes and cut them into quarters). Then we both ordered fish and chips and the fish had no flavor, thank goodness for tartar sauce, and once again, the chips were thick potato wedges with no salt or seasoning. Waiter did take back the wedges and bring us back french fries but only one small plate for both our meals. Husband's beer also tasted watered down - he ordered the harp and guinness.

    Harrington's was a great place to watch the Superbowl. They had numerous HD screens as well as an enormous screen in the bar area. I ordered the fish and chips, which was delicious, and my friend had the wings, which were also really good. Also, the crowd was not rowdy. I would definitely go back.

    Friday evening: Enjoyed the Gaelic Steak while my girlfriend had Bangers & Mash which, as she's a gourmet cook, she really enjoyed. She stated that Irish sausage is the best - period. Harrington's is directly across from Bobby McKey's Piano Bar, where we had evening reservations. The restaurant is away from the bar area which keeps it quiet, though we could hear a bit of the Irish musician when he started playing. Good Irish food. Will definitely go again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005

    Looks like a very fun Irish sports bar. But we were there for a weekday lunch, and it was almost empty. Interesting menu - all the right Irish stuff, and a good beer list. I had the bangers and mash, hoping for true Irish (English)sausages. They were close, but overcooked. The Bailey's chocolate mousse had no taste of Bailey's in it, but was good. Kind of pricey for lunch... bill for two (2 beers, one Shepherd's Pie, one B&M and one dessert), was $60 plus tax and tip. I would try it again on a football weekend.

    Made original reservation for 6 through OpenTable. However, when I tried to change it on OpenTable to a reservation for 8, I got the message "no availability within 2.5 hours of requested time for the next 8 weeks". I called the restaurant directly and left a message, not really expecting a call back. Within the hour, a very nice lady called me back and quickly made my requested changes. Had to call back again to try to push my reservation back an hour. Once again, the same terrific young woman who I spoke to earlier accomodated my request. Our server was wonderful and attentive. Had the fish and chips(HUGE portions!), Irish soda bread, Reuben and Lamb French Dip - all very yummy! Wish we could have stayed longer for the live Irish music

    Our family of 4 (2 teenagers) had no experience with an Irish restaurant, with their mother a vegetarian, it always seemed unfitting. This Saturday, 3 days before Xmas, Harrington's was available on OpenTable, only 2 days before. The reviews were good, fair priced and overall good experiences so we gave it a go. We were delighted in the warmth and spirit of the staff + management. Everyone, but Mom (me), got the shepherds pie and were over the moon with the dish. My salad was very good (spinach w/goat cheese). I found out after the meal that they offer a vegetarian shepherds pie, but it wasn't on the menu! That was our only snag of the evening + we can't wait to return for more pie, this time for all of us.

    A haze of smoke from kitchen permeates the restaurant. When asked, the staff seemed to indicate this is common. Had a headache by the time we left and all of our clothes smelled strongly of fried food. Service was very slow. Food was fair, but overshadowed by the other distractions. The Web site advertises Irish music on Fridays starting at 7. We were there from approximately 7-9 pm and didn't hear any live music. I will not return to this restaurant.

    Although the serves was very friendly, the service was less than timely. Appetizers were served without plates, which had to be requested. There was significant delay in requested beverages, this all during an early afternoon when the restaurant was not extremely busy. Have been to Harrington's before, and was surprised by the less than average service. Invited a friend to come with us based on past experience, would not do so again.

    Really was let down by this restaurant. It shouold have been a sign that at 630 on a Friday, the place was pretty empty!! The soup was not hot, the pasta dish was not hot, but overcooked and looked like garbage. The Salmon special was good, so I gave two stars. The bread pudding....NOT AT ALL BREAD PUDDING, it was a square puck that had to have been microwaved! The service was the bright spot here, you cant knock the front line folks for whats happening in the kitchen!
