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.

We were seated upstairs, overlooking the bar, mostly to ourselves, but our server was very attentive. The food I had (walnut crusted fried chicken) was extremely tasty, as was the limoncello cake.

Food was okay. Baked potato was served so overcooked it was shriveled and black. The shrimp dish was swimming in the garlic/wine sauce. Haddock and steak tips were just okay. The patio was very pleasant and has a nice feel to it. Our waitress was lovely but service was a bit slow (understandable with the current situation).

Worst experience ever as a second generation patron of Kennedy's I will never go back. Awful service, extremely noisy and a 30 minute wait even with a reservation. Message to management - train your wait staff to be courteous and what it means to serve people. I feel like I wasted over $100 on a miserable experience. Never again!

Four of us went to brunch at Kennedy’s Pub. We sat outside in their patio area, which is delightful. Two of us had their “Irish Bene,” which was very good and consisted of eggs, hash, and hollandaise sauce over popovers. The food was very good and well priced. My only complaint was that it took very, very long for our food to come out. This was likely due to large Father’s Day parties arriving in close succession, but, still, it took an hour for our food to arrive after ordering.

I totally get that places are short staffed due to COVID, but we waited 20 minutes and weren’t even acknowledged by a server. We even asked the hostess about it and still no one came, so we left.

This was our first trip back here in a few years. Not sure if they’re having staffing issues like other restaurants but all five of our meals were bland and not really exciting with the exception of hard boiled eggs appetizer. Drinks were so/so. Our desserts were the espresso martini which we all had to send back - it was basically a cup of cold amaretto. No froth showing it was even shaken and certainly no espresso flavor. I’ve never in my life sent a drink back but this wasn’t palatable.

The outside is absolutely gorgeous and it’s clear a lot of thought, time and investment went into it. Not really enough, however, to make up for the meal.
