What do you provide that people may not know about? What’s unusual on your menu?

“We provide the area’s only authentic Irish dining experience. Corned Beef and Creamed Cabbage, Shepherd’s Pie, Fibber Flanagan’s Fish and Chips, and Bangers and Mash are just a few of the many unique Irish dishes we offer,” General Manager Jesse Schanilec said. “We also have 36 different tap beers served in frosty mugs along with the best whiskey selection around.”

What do you recommend customers try? What’s an old favorite and/or a new option people should try?

“We recommend everyone try something that contains our slow roasted corned beef, whether that’s the Corned Beef and Creamed Cabbage, the Reuben, or the Irish Egg Rolls,” Schanilec said. “An old favorite definitely is the Fibber Flanagan’s Fish and Chips while a newer addition to the menu that seems to get overwhelmingly positive feedback from our guests and staff alike is the California Style Fish Tacos.”
