The Claddagh Irish Pub Restaurant Review: At its entrance, this Irish-style bar sets a relaxing tone. Two main dining rooms are warmed by a large, castle-like fireplace and dark wood paneling, and there’s cozy alcove seating. Start with an appetizer of black mussels simmered in Harp lager, or check out the Claddagh cheese board and antipasto board (though it's definitely not Irish). Then go native with traditional pub fare like thin-sliced corned beef with carrots and parsnips over boiled cabbage and redskins. Rich Irish stew features beef, carrots, potatoes and root vegetables swimming in thick, Guinness-infused sauce. Lighter eaters can try one of eight entrée salads or go for garlic butter trout with capers, sun-dried tomatoes and pine nuts. A dozen sandwich choices include a burger as well as a cod filet on a baguette. Enjoy a Claddagh Coffee, a mix of Irish Mist, Combier Liqueur d’Orange, Kahlúa, fresh-brewed coffee and Claddagh cream with a brown sugar rim. There are also whiskey flights and rotating craft and seasonal beers. Finish with traditional bread pudding with whiskey cream sauce or crêpes filled with Baileys-flavored cream cheese and topped with raspberry fruit compote. Staff is very attentive.
