Welcome to Kip’s Irish Pub and Restaurant. A favorite gathering spot for locals since 2005, Kip’s is open to serve you from morning to late at night. Stop in for breakfast! With our Irish heritage, the house-made corned beef and hash comes highly recommended. Stop in for lunch for a quick bite or stay and visit the afternoon away with a friend and a pint. The fun really starts ramping up in the late afternoon with our happy hour specials, complemented by sunsets on our outdoor patio.

From kids eat free to $5 Martinis; we shake things up each and every day. Live entertainment is here on designated weekend evenings, check out our website for dates and times. This is also the place to be to watch your favorite game! Let’s cheer and celebrate together as we watch all the action on our seven HD TVs.
Large groups are welcome to join us! Kip’s offers three private dining spaces accommodating up to 75 guests.
We look forward to seeing you soon. Cheers!

I had the shaved prime rib sandwich and onion rings. The onion rings were all batter and the sandwich had absolutely no flavor. The server was really nice and gave us a free piece of cake for the bad sandwich.

We had only been to retirement parties there and have always wanted to try dinner. We did and we will be back! Good food and the prices were good with metro dining cards. Appreciated that we could use the cards on a Saturday night!

The service of the entire team was great! From the host stand to the bar to the servers. The food was pretty good, too. I'd say it's an average Irish Pub sports bar - we only tried 2 entrees so hard to really rate the food much further.

The Chicken Piccata was nothing but grilled chicken over noodles. It was NOT Piccata. the waitress brought white wine instead of red. Most of the food everyone had was tasteless. The woman who was at the table next to us was alone and had never been to Kips before. She ordered a salad and the Fish and Chips. When it came it was a full dinner salad and a huge portion of Fish. All she wanted was a small dinner salad. The waitress could have told her she was ordering too much food, but she didn't and she charged the lady for it. She left with over half of her food not touched. I would never go back there.

It is a nice patio. Good happy hour. Food is good enough. Service was HORRIBLE this time: we had to go inside to get another round of drinks, she brought one of us a wrong drink the first time, and she was not very personable. But I've had good service there all the other times I've been. The gluten free menu was pretty good. Too much flavor on the steak.

Even though we arrived way ahead of our reservation, they got us seated soon after we arrived. The food was very good. The reuben was huge, and looked fantastic, although I did not get a chance to try it myself. The tenderloin sliders were quite tasty, tender, and not overdone. The fish and chips wasn't anything special, lots of batter, but it was still good. We will definitely go back.

We had enjoyable Mother’s Day brunch at Kip’s. Restaurant was nice not too crowded or noisy. Staff was friendly, but not overly helpful. Enjoyed the guitarist and song selection. Food was pretty good! Omelets were huge and tasty. Everyone enjoyed the salmon, bacon no one finished theirs. All in all we had a nice meal.

We did the mother's day brunch and the food was amazingly better than expected. Not a lot of choices but what they did have was good, above basic buffet brunch food. The only issue was our server. Spilled the coffee pot on the table, spelled ice water all over one of our chairs and did not even say sorry or clean it up. She just pushed the chair back in and left it there for someone to sit into.

Yes, for Happy Hour but we went for the Easter brunch and while I appreciated the price point, the food was not flavorful and the options were poor. They served a regular hotel continental breakfast and then had a separate station of tasteless ham, under cooked potatoes, blah sweet potatoes and a dessert bar that tasted like cheap bakery treats from a low end grocery store. Kip's is great for happy hour but was very disappointed with the Easter brunch menu!

My husband and I ordered the Angus burger which has always been outstanding. But since we were last here and had the burger they NO longer use the pretzel bun with it. I would like to suggest they
return to using the pretzel bun. The bun they used on this visit seemed to crumble too much. Otherwise, our meal was good.

Enjoyed Kip's immensely. Casual atmosphere, family comfort, sports related venue, great food and service. I will be eating here again and with friends in the future. A great choice for a Saturday evening. Good music, had the Cornmeal Calamari Starters and the Corned Beef and Cabbage Entrée. Quality Feast.

The reason I gave a low rating on service was because they could not find our reservation. At the time we arrived there they were not very busy, but they did not have a space ready for us. Once we were seated our server did a very good job taking care of us. We will go there again.

Our Thanksgiving meal was good but not exceptional. It was served a little on the cool side,
and I like hot food hot, and cold food cold...I don't like lukewarm. For the price, I think the
portions could have been a little more generous, very little stuffing, potatoes and gravy. They
did bring out some more stuffing in a bowl when I asked for it. We were not served rolls/butter
either, and when I mentioned it at the end of our meal, they did bring some out in a plastic bag,
warm. The two people who were real roll/bread eaters were not able to enjoy it with their meal.
Taking the rolls out in the cold when we left was inadequate. The pie was too spiced and did not
have a custard texture...at least for my taste. The best thing was the salad?! It was a generous portion
nice selection of field greens, sliced red onion, and grape/cherry tomatoes, and good salad dressings
as well. My son really liked his, and finished it all. He has never been known as a salad lover, but he
did love that one. I have never seen him eat salad with relish like that before...and as his mother he has
had many very good salads that he has passed on since childhood. The service was excellent, the servers
who I think may have been the owners were Irish, were funny, witty and charming. We felt the comfort
of home. Of course since my husband and son are Irish, that was right up their alley. The Irish have a real
pride in them just because they are Irish. I have never seen that with other nationalities. Frankly, I don't
get it, a little over the top I would say. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves on Thanksgiving.
