THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Harp Irish Pub Restaurant Review

: Iconography and memorabilia from the Auld Sod plus plenty of dark burnished wood help craft the authentic style of this suburban Irish pub, the younger sibling of the Roswell location. This family-owned and -operated establishment has Irish governance, and while sandwiches and burgers deviate from authenticity in deference to American tastes, as do wings and nachos, the fried cod filet with its accompanying house-made chips (french fries, that is) gets back on the authenticity road. These same chips are best when dunked into curry sauce, an Irish pub classic. The sausage rolls in puff pastry come with a side of house-made tomato relish that's the Irish answer to ketchup, and it’s tasty, but the sausage is better served by the whole-grain mustard that lurks in the kitchen. The lamb stew is correctly done a day or two ahead with plenty of chunky vegetables and a standout sauce. Also look for shepherd's pie, beef and Guinness pie, and bangers and mash. Irish breakfast with all the trimmings is an all-day offering. Forget the wine list; come for the draft pints. Also located at 1425 Market Blvd., Ste. 1330, King's Market Shopping Center off Holcomb Bridge Rd., Roswell, 770-645-0118.
