Cannon's Blackthorn Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
Cannon's Blackthorn comes close to replicating an establishment on Temple Bar in Dublin. The only downside to that is those places are populated by tourists not Irishmen. They would do better to replicate Earley's Bar on Bridge Street in Sligo City. There the music is not so deafening that a conversation (craic) can actually take place. The decibel level of the music is the only downside to this establishment. The staff is friendly and attentive, the beer is cold and the food is as you would expect, pub grub.
We enjoyed a great Sunday brunch with full Irish breakfast that was absolutely delicious! We were the first ones there when they opened and more people came in soon after us. We got to enjoy the fiddler getting ready to play for a party which was an added treat.
We sat next to the fireplace but it did very little to help warm us up. The food was salty and the waitress brought out our main course while we were eating our appetizer. She placed the main on the table although I asked her to give us another 5 minutes. We raced through the appetizer to get to the main course because we knew it was getting cold. By the time we made it to the entree, it was cold. The worst part of the entrees was the amount of salt. We had to order two pitchers of water with our main course. We did not finish the meal and left a marginal tip.
Not sure which was worse the food or the service but if I had to choose I would say the service. Waitress took forever to take orders and pretty much ignored us til we got her attention. Lots of mistakes with the orders not sure if it was her or the kitchen staff. Best thing I had there was the beers . Very loud place wouldnt bring the kids to a place like this
