Went to Blackthorn for lunch so it wasn't as crowded as it usually is. I ordered the Shepard's pie and my friend got a burger. Both meals were delicious. Prices are reasonable. Love the ambience, it feels like I'm in a pub in England or Scotland!

Though this places is considered an irish pub, ,the food isn't just your normal bar food. The menu consisted mostly of steak and seafood options with burgers and pub classics thrown in. The staff was very nice and eager to help. While we were there, there was a 50th birthday party going on, so the noise level was pretty high for half of our dinner. The décor was beautiful.

Sat Down. Only one other group at a table besides a party group in the back. Plate on table was dirty! Waitress wouldn't give another as she said they were in the dishwasher. Yet, stacks of large plates could be seen. Hello, give us something! Asked three times for a glass for my beer.

Crazy crowds are what you might expect at an Irish pub/restaurant on St Patrick's Day, but Cannon's Blackthorn are pros. We were seated immediately for our 730p reservation and treated to live music along with the holiday menu. Great atmosphere, and service with a smile! Cannon's Blackthorn is a cut above the usual 'grubby pub' fare with a refreshing culinary twist on many selections.

We enjoyed specialty egg rolls and potato croquettes for appetizers (corned beef & cabbage egg roll with spiced mustard, perfect), with perfectly drawn Guinness for all. Entrees were excellent including the cedar plank salmon, Dublin burger, beef stew (beautiful pewter bowl) and shepherd's pie. Great desserts: apple cobbler, rice pudding, bread pudding.

The staff is always kind, considerate and friendly. Very kid friendly for meals. However, the food has taken a turn for the worse in the past two years.... They need to bring back their Ruben burger and add new items to the menu.

Food and service was excellent. Restaurant was cold and the music way too loud and it wasn't as if they had a DJ blaring music. The place could be so much better if they had better management.

Blackthorn was a great neighborhood pub. For a quick bite or a nice dinner out this place hits the spot. The corned beef and cabbage eggrolls are a refreshing twist. Great irish style food. Definitely recommend this place. Our waitress and the rest of the staff were pleasant and professional. Service was A+

Food is good. Not many authentic Irish specialities but the food is good. Try the blue cheese potatoes and the skirt steak. Shrimp lollipops were good too. Bar has a nice selection of draft beers. Service was fast and attentive and the beer selection is good.
