Guide Review - Flannery's Pub

Flannery’s is a huge and inviting Irish pub and restaurant. It’s warm and welcoming, despite its size, with hardwood floors, gleaming brass railings, and deep mahogany paneling. Flannery’s is divided into a pub area with a long bar, private high-top tables, and a secluded back bar area as well as three dining areas. The menu features Irish classics, such as Irish stew, fish and chips, and the house favorite, colcannon, a mixture of mashed potatoes, grated cabbage and carrots, garlic, and scallions. Appetizers are typical bar food, but the entrée and sandwich menus contain some excellent choices. Try the blackened grouper sandwich with a spicy red pepper mayonnaise or the shepherd’s pie, a traditional Irish pub dish, made with chucks of beef, vegetables, colcannon, and cheddar, all baked in a pie. The prices at Flannery’s are reasonable. Lunch entrees average $4.95 and dinner entrees average $9.95.

Of course, no Irish meal would be complete without something to drink, and Flannery’s doesn’t disappoint. They offer a large menu of Irish, domestic, and imported as well as a varied selection of Irish whiskies and single malt Scotches. They also offer a full bar selection. Happy hour is 4pm – 7pm , Mondays through Fridays, when patrons receive $1 off any draft beer, house wine, or house liquor in the bar area Flannery’s comes to life on St. Patrick’s Day when it opens just after dawn for a hearty Irish breakfast and all the green beer you can drink.

Not traditional Irish food, Member extraone

We visited on 11/9. They did not open the doors until 1pm, even though their website states 12:30 on Sundays. There was a bone in my Irish stew, the shepherds pie and chicken cottage pie were more like baby food - with tiny bits of meat and veggies not even enough to consider it hearty and smothered in a sour tasting gravy and cheese - topped with a line of potatoes that are an insult to real colcannon. Irish food is supposed to be hearty, I have had canned food that tasted better. Then, coming back from the restroom, I slipped on some food and fell. Although they asked if I was alright, that is where it ended...no real concern and the proof was on the knee of my jeans (looked like a piece of potato.) We'll never go back..not an traditional Irish pub at all and they do not care about their customers.
