The food is a bit pricey but is always very good. Service is normally great other than they often push out the main course while still eating the appetizers. It's happened about half the time I've eaten here (including this visit). On this visit, our server was taking care of too many tables. She still was able to check on us, but once a party of about 15 was seated (in addition to the other 5 or so tables she had), things slowed down near the end of the meal. Not at all her fault. Overall, a good meal and will absolutely go back again.

Having met the chef, we found it comforting that he listened to our comments and offered alternate suggestions to satisfy my epicurean chef wife. All ended well. The girls danced , I danced, and the night couldn't have been better.

I went to Lahinch for the music. Fantastic blues close to home! Had a fresh Caesar salad, and a lovely draft beer. Highly recommend it for lunch or dinner with many great choices, fabulous wait staff, and blues for dessert! It does not get any better than that.

All of us order salads, which was great! The soup was okay. We didn’t care for the Irish soda bread. The regular bread was excellent and warm slices. There was a band playing before we left our dinner. However, not everyone wore a mask in the restaurant when serving and even some customers didn’t wear masks. We would definitely go back though.

Our servers (Sharon was one) were fun and welcoming. The food was delicious; choices include the Crab Toasties, Chicken and Waffles, and Salmon/Bagel platter.
The mimosas are made with rose champagne which make them taste especially festive. Go. Enjoy.

Honestly not great. The food was just mediocre at best. It was greasy and the value didn’t match the quality or the portion. Everything had a layer of grease and tasted stale. I came before the pandemic and it was really good, but something must’ve happened because it’s not worth coming. The service was poor, our server was lazy, unkept looking, and he didn’t seem to care to be there, and the runner did most of the work. I probably won’t be back.

We met some friends there for dinner Monday night. And listen to music. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves as did we. My husband and I had the crab and artichoke dip appetizer it was delicious. I also recommend the barbecue brisket sandwich.

Have been a customer there for years and have noticed the improvement in the overall quality of their food and service - even during the recent pandemic! The overall ambiance of the venue depends on the quality of the live music entertainment there at any given time. Recently enjoyed listening and dancing to a local act "Trademark", Montgomery County's best classic rock variety band.

This place was touted by OpenTable as some place you must visit this summer. I'd have to disagree. While there was nothing wrong, there was nothing special about this place.

Really enjoyed our first trip to this restaurant. Although the menu wasn't extensive there was plenty of tasty possibilities. My wife ordered the salmon and lentil risotto, which was well done and delicious, and I had the chicken club, also well done. Nice cocktail options too. I would have liked to see a more extensive beer list, but I did have a local IPA on tap. There was a band playing while we there, which we enjoyed a lot but definitely was easily heard all over. We will go back for sure.

Excellent Pub Style Place, greatly enjoyed by English Style breakfast, kids loved the bacon and pancakes and my partner enjoyed her meal of crabcakes. We were majorly late and the place was extremely helpful on a very busy mothers day. I will definitely be back for a lunch or dinner soon too!

Love this place! We travel from the Tysons Corner area to Lahinch on weekends to enjoy the best full Irish breakfast anywhere (thank you, executive chef / co-owner Ted Hughes), accompanied by great service at the bar from Sharon & Zach.
