The corned beef and cabbage was delicious. I don't recall having corned beef so tender. I would have given it an even better review but the noise kind of ruined the evening. I sat next to my dinner partner and had trouble hearing her over the noise from the other tables. I even had trouble hearing the server and had to have her repeat things to me.
I could only recommend this restaurant if it was a night when they weren't so busy.

The food was very good but the service was pretty poor. We waited a long time for food and had to keep asking for a waitress to come back for a drink order.

Just because there is a kilt in a glass case, an Irish Pub this does not make.
Furthest thing from an Irish Pub that we have experienced. There was no traditional Irish food on the menu (unless you count the thin french fries). The bill was over a hundred dollars for burgers boneless wings and a blt and 2 drinks. No Irish music or atmosphere.

WE ATE OUTSIDE ON A VERY NICE DAY. NOT VERY MANY CUSTOMERS, SO
THAT'S PROBABLY WHY THERE WEREN'T MANY SERVORS. FOOD WAS GOOD AND ATMOSPERE WAS GOOD. DIDN'T GET MUCH ATTENTION FROM THE SERVOR.

No carbonization in either beer or soda. "1000 island" dressing was hot salsa and ranch. Tiny drinks with no detectable alcohol.

Stayed at the hotel for st patricks day and had reservations at Kips We expected to have corned beef and cabbage or shepards pie. Not on the meun and Not being served. I ordered a specialty cocktail from the not so irish menu. I was told the bartender didnt have time to get the ingrediants for all of the specialty cocktails on the main menu. If that is true we should be looking fro a new bartender. The food was good but we were dissapointed.

We sat outside and enjoyed an excellent meal with fantastic service. All four of us said we would come back and eat again. The flatbread was delicious, so make sure you try it when you go there. The blueberry margarita was also yummy.

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.

Great place. Very quiet this evening, which is unusual for them, so easier to talk. Food is good quality and lots of beer selections on tap.
