    Went for the fish-n-chips and they were good. The rest of my tablemates were not as impressed. Had we known it was trivia night we may have opted for some place else. That was a little distracting while we were trying to carry on a conversation. Our waitress was fantastic, she did a tremendous job and was able to find that perfect balance between not hovering around us, yet always available. Still might go back, just for the fish-n-chips.

    We came to Claddagh for a bite before a big concert downtown. The manager on duty was very nice - he found my credit card after I left it on the table and kept it safe for me until I returned after the concert to retrieve it. Food was good and service, while the place was hectic, was very polite.

    Pleasant server and mexiocre food. I can’t recall any surface I touched that didn’t feel greasy. Was served a Bloody Mary that aside from being red bore no resemblance to the menu description.

    The server was attentive and upbeat. The food was delicious, a combination of classic Irish fare and creative modern twists on Irish classics. Cocktails were affordable and well mixed. Desserts were very well priced, large enough to share, and fabulous. I look forward to visiting Claddagh again soon.

    We were looking forward to going here based on the menu online. We had planned out everything that we were going to order. When we sat down everything we were going to order was not on the menu handed to us. We were told that due to a convention in town that weekend, they changed their menu for the weekend. (We were there Sunday evening after said convention had ended.) We were disappointed, but order different food. What came was sub par and overcooked and/or burnt. The server was friendly, but seemed to be the only one working, so was not attentive. This establishment is located downtown a city block away from the convention center. I would assume there are conventions almost every weekend. Do they slice their menu and staff in half every weekend? Maybe you can only get the "good food" during the week?

    The restaurant and food were great the only reason it a 4 star is because me and my date are both under 21 and we had to stay upfront witch sucks because looked like a really cool place to look around in.

    Hamburger was not just undercooked, but almost raw. Had to send it back. Took forever to get another one. Friends were done eating before I got it. Service was slow. Despite this being a Thursday night, this place was almost deserted @ 8:00 pm.

    PRI 2017 Indianapolis started today with estimates of 70k people being downtown for the event. This establishment is next door to one of the BIGGEST parties of the event. We made 7pm reservations for 10 people at the last minute via open table. When we arrived, the table wasn't ready and no one knew were were coming. Being last minute, this was understandable. However, despite the restaurant being almost empty, they had to clear a table to seat us. After 10 mins we were able to order drinks. The non alcoholic drinks came fairly quickly. The alcoholic drinks took 15 mins . Reorders of drinks were slow. We ordered our meal just before 7:30. The first plates came to our table at 8:10. One "well done " burger was sent back because it was raw--literally. A corned beef n cabbage was cold. A fish n chips and Turkey wrap didn't come out until 8:30. Our server worked her butt off to try to help us.... and Managment seems to either be beaten down or disengaged. However, after a discussion mgmt did comp some meals. Not the Claddagh experience that we have had at other facilities.

    We ate at the Claddah a couple years ago at remembered it was okay and was in Indy to give it another try. If you want a lot of quantity and not much quality this is the place to go. The staff is friendly and our waitress was fine too. I ordered the corned beef and cabbage and the meat was served in a bowl over carrots and potatoes. I took the steak knife and tried to cut the meat and was not successful because the meat was so tough! My wife ordered the cheese board and I had an extra plate for sharing. I took the meat out of the bowl to place it on the extra plate to get a better attempt at cutting it and it did not make any difference at all. There was a lot of fat marbled into the corned beef similar to a ribeye steak and the fat was very hard and tough! I had to saw fiercely for every bite. I should of complained earlier to the waitress but was too hungry. too. The carrots and potatoes were flavorless as well. It was not worth the $16 at all! My wife's cheese board was also disappointing. The crackers and cheese were cheap tasting and the walnuts that came on the board were soggy.

    Poor service. Server didn’t put in my drink order. It wasn’t complicated-just Guinness pint. My spouse got his beer. We got the pretzel and cheese appetizer but it had sat long enough somewhere to get a film like crust on the cheese dip. My Guinness still didn’t arrive. We finished the appetizer and server finally admits she forgot to order my Guinness and wouldn’t charge me. Dinner order was wrong then she brings me a flimsy plastic 12 oz BudLite cup with Guinness. I said you’re kidding right? She walked away before I could nite the burger was wrong. Again we ordered the most basic pub grub and are not complainers. She came back and I explained the burger problem and asked why I get a plastic Dixie cup? She claimed there were no glasses left. And said she’d bring the missing items but never did. The restaurant wasn’t full neither was the bar. They had water glasses but at this point I gave up as we had an event to attend. Alas that was our last visit.

    For being a downtown restaurant, the overall experience was ok compared to others downtown. They have a better location with better service in Plainfield. Food was not out of this world amazing and definitely far more expensive than others.

    Our service was incredibly slow. We had a reservation because it was before a concert. When we got there there was hardly anyone there. Took awhile to get our drinks....even longer to get our waters. Brie appetizer came out without crackers or bread. Had multiple servers ask for drink orders. Food came and majority of it was great. The Shepard pie came with a salad on the plate...the tomato was warm and the salad was wilted as if it had sat under the warmer with the actual food. We did not get asked how our food was or if we wanted refills on drinks. It's too bad, the place is beautiful and the food is for the most part great. We were there for a total of an hour and a half while not too busy. Service needs improved upon.

    We went there the night of U2 and it was very busy. We walked in and there was a 45 minute wait so booked a table quickly on OpenTable waited 15 minutes. However, the service was very slow not because of the waitress but because of the kitchen and it took us almost 40 minutes to get our food which was just typical bar fair. So a mediocre experience at best.
