A word from Tir Na Nog - Philadelphia
Tír na nÓg Irish Bar & Grill incorporates the warmth of an Irish pub with New American cuisine and all the while maintains a famous charm and hospitality. This extremely popular establishment opened in 2002 in the heart of Center City Philadelphia, after the runaway success of the original in Manhattan. A design team from Ireland created this small piece of Ireland by salvaging architectural pieces, furniture and bric-a-brac from churches and castles in Ireland and shipping them to the USA. These pieces, combined with rich textiles, Celtic script adorning the walls, and rich, dark wood have shaped an elegant yet inviting atmosphere which caters to the sophisticated and casual diner. Tír na nÓg was just what Philly needed, a beautiful, yet unpretentious bar and restaurant that has something for everyone. The combination of an attractive menu and a professional, yet friendly, team of bartenders and servers has made Tír na nÓg a major success with clientele of all ages.

    The wife and I asked for a quieter table because the booth we were seated at in the bar area was extremely loud. The hostess said she would check and returned in a few minutes and said there were none available. I explained I walked the restaurant and there were numerous tables available in the rear of the restaurant. She explained there were no servers available for those tables. Note; there was another couple already seated in this area having dinner. The best part of the meal was the desert. We had crab cakes and salmon for dinner.

    We took my friend here for a birthday brunch. She specifically wanted to try Shepherd's pie. Although it wasn't on the menu for brunch, the server made sure she had shepherd's pie. She loved it. I got the green eggs and ham; our friend got the waffle. For dessert, we got the napoleon and the bread pudding. Delicious! The World Cup was on tvs, but it didn't get too loud. Our server was very friendly and made the visit special.

    Our server was awesome, they seated our party of 8 right away, the ambiance was great, and the bathrooms were clean, which is a big plus for me! The brunch menu was a bit limited if u want breakfast foods, but everything was tasty, which matters the most. Definitely recommend for large groups. Spacious and comfortable.

    Dined on 4/22/2014
    The server was very nice but had too many tables. The menu was ok, but there weren't traditional Irish food items offered. For example no brown bread, no corned beef, the mashed potatoes were probably boxed. The food we did get - grilled chicken over mashed potatoes and chicken tenders and fries were very good (except the mashed potatoes).

    5:00 on a Friday afternoon was probably a poor time for an early dinner. Incredibly loud. Server did move us to a table farthest from the bar, but not a huge improvement. If you can converse at 95 decibels, this might be a heck of a place. Food was better than expected!

    The wait staff was attentive but not overly so as to where you were constantly interrupted while eating and talking. The menu had familiar items but some with a twist. Would recommend for either business or casual lunch. This time was for business but can't wait to try some of their craft beer with my friends

    AustrianCountessVIP
    Dined on 4/1/2014
    At lunch I ordered the blackened salmon entree and it was truly one of the best meals I have ever had. The salmon was perfectly seasoned; very tasty but not too hot or too spicy.The fish was srumptious, as were the mashed potatos and asparagus that came with the entree. My compliments to the chef. We sat in a quieter part of the restaurant with linen tablecloths so it was a little more formal than the bar area .Service was good. I would definitely recommend for lunch /dinner. Try the blackened salmon; you will love it!

    Every city in the world has an Irish Pup. This is one of the best of them.It was filled with fans watching an Irish match and they stilll had some room in the back that as reaspnably quiet for a family the tipical English- Irish food was outstanding and the women all liked the salads. There was something for everyone. I would come back when in the area.

    The waitress couldn't be bothered to tend properly to our table. She had to ask for our order 3 times since she had no notepad. The kitchen couldn't be bothered to serve decent portions or look at what the were sending out. My friends Rueben looked like half of it was missing and the tomato on my sandwich was green. When such little care is taken on the basics, why should I come back?

    Tir Na Nog was recommended by a friend. We were staying nearby for a conference. Ten of us went to dinner. We had a lovely room all to ourselves. The menu options were great, everything from traditional Irish fare to "picks". We all enjoyed our dinner. On a busy Friday night, our service and the attention we received were great.

    Tir Na Nog is a safe lunch choice in a convenient Center City location. There was nothing negative about the dining experience. The hostess and server were friendly. Lunch service was prompt. The prices reasonable. It is a chain and there are a few similar spot as well in Philadelphia (as in most cities). If you seek a simple salad, sandwich or midday brew, it certainly fits the bill.

    Its location is what has had me visit twice: once for lunch, once for dinner. The quality control lacks a little, as I believe both times I asked for my burger medium well and the lunch visit gave me a rare burger (almost red in the center) while the dinner visit gave me a well-well done burger (charred on the outside and dry). However, my party seemed to enjoy their fish'n'chips and shepherd's pie; they have many beers on tap; and the service is friendly.

    The food was excellent. We were a group of 7 and everyone was quite pleased with their meal. Our server was attentive without being invasive. So that was all good. The table was set for 6 and it was pretty tight. Too big for 4, but really needed an extra foot to accommodate 6. I saw other tables similarly sized and set, so whoever planned the furniture blew it there. The noise level was high - in part because the surfaces all reflect sound and so everything travels, but in part because there were screaming girls at the bar who just seemed to want to let out a high-pitched scream for their own amusement. Once or twice, sure, but again and again and again!? I'll go back for the food, but I won't plan to engage in meaningful conversation.

    Tir Na Nog had pretty nice pub food. three of our party of 4 had typical Irish dishes that were good and heaping. Since we were meeting friends that we haven't seen for a long time, we found the noise level way too loud to hold any extended conversation. If you are looking for a fun place to hang out with friends you don't need to talk to, this is your place.

    The place was kind of empty when we first go there, and the service was prompt. About half way through, our waitress was hard to find when we wanted the check. She was probably hard to find since she was working the outside tables as well as the inside tables. She was very nice, and the food was good, but she was spread too thin.
