Service was slow, but the restaurant was both very busy and short staffed. My server answered my questions and helped me make a decision. The walnut crusted fried chicken breast was delicious, and I was able to swap out mashed potatoes for Delmonico, which were very good. I’ll definitely go back should I be in the area again.

Great neighborhood spot. Went for lunch and had the turkey sandwich (open-face). It was wonderful - I can eat turkey anytime - especially when it is delicious. Yummy!

We have been to Kennedy's three times on a recommendation of a friend and have been very pleased each time. It seems to be a very popular place and the food is great. I consider myself a reasonably good cook but I would never have thought of stuffing a salmon. That is what I have had each time and it has been terrific. My husband also enjoyed his meal which was first the hamburger and later a turkey dish (I don't eat meat.) We have enjoyed this discovery of a friendly, happy place in these difficult times and will return often. Great service as well!

The Mandarin salmon was really great. The broccoli side dish was served nice and hot. The popover (which is supposedly one of their specialties) was average. Still, the meal was quite good, cost was reasonable, service was friendly. I'll return.

outside seating was great. French Onion soup was good, but meals were just so so. Service was really slow for some reason, but our server was very apologetic throughout, so that is all you can ask.

The fried calamari appetizer was only fair. Would advise not to order it. The Kennedy's Sirloin was excellent but the DelMonico potato's have gone to a "out of a box" type since the last time we ate there. The Shrimp Scampi was very flavorful, but there were only 6 shrimp. Drinks were excellent. Server was very good and attentive. Overall I would say it was a good to very good dinning experience.

Food was delicious (they have a talent with their chef Sean) it looks like they have a fabulous patio (it was raining otherwise would have eaten out there instead of inside) and service was friendly! The dining room is warm with a cozy ambience—everything you would want in an Irish pub! Will definitely be back, as long as it’s on the patio…it looks so pretty!.

Kennedy's Pub features both a charming Irish cottage/pub and a tropical garden paradise. Indoor dining is, as expected, warm and cozy, but the outdoor area is a total transforamation. The umbrella tables are comfortably spaced, there is an appropriate number of heaters to ensure comfort, and the plants and flowers are magnificent! Lush and colorful, it's an unexpected oasis in the middle of Marlborough. Definitely a standout among Metrowest outdoor dining options!

Our party of 4 enjoyed wine, appetizers, sandwiches and entrees. The food and beverage was very good and reasonably priced. The Chicken Limone was a standout, as was the Reuben.

Service from the maitre d' to the waitstaff was exceptional! Everyone was very friendly, accommodating and professional. They truly went above and beyond to ensure that we had a wonderful evening.

Great service , food was average.. I had their special of the day, veal parm. Not great, small piece and coating was all falling off. While it was tender, it was nothing special. She had the salmon and it was not just the thin tail piece, borderline dry and no real flavor …. Could have had s9me topping or seasoning on it .

We specifically reserved outdoor seating for this restaurant because we heard great reviews about their recently renovated patio. This was to be our first time at the restaurant. When we arrived, we were told they gave our table away to a large party and we had to eat inside which was dark, old and very dated. They had the ability to contact us in advance to notify us yet they did not. I will never come hear again. It seemed like the kind of place with an older crowd and lots of regulars. Our server was good.

The waitress was great! Very personable and attentive. The fish we received was not as good as previous dining experiences; the swordfish was cooked too much/dry and the fish on the fisherman’s platter was small, lacked flavor and tough to break apart without using a knife.
