The Irish House Restaurant Review

: The Irish House owner-chef Matt Murphy was once a corporate hotel chef. However, this place is anything but corporate. Instead, it's big, loud and lots of fun, with décor that’s a bit more polished than one would find at most pubs, with cloth-covered tables and swagged window treatments. It is as appropriate for a quick bite at the bar (bangers and mash, beer-battered fish ‘n’ chips) as it is for a leisurely dinner in the dining room with something as simple as grilled salmon and a drizzle of curry or as clever as a vegetable Wellington complemented by a spicy tomato sauce. Irish favorites include such staples as shepherd’s pie and a served-all-day Irish breakfast complete with black-and-white pudding. Desserts are tempting, and the sticky toffee pudding keeps dinner in the Gaelic family; consider, too, Guinness chocolate trifle, with whiskey ganache and Baileys icing. While there are decent wines, some five dozen beers are on regular offer, with at least a dozen on tap. If you happen to be in the area on Mardi Gras, The Irish House parking lot is the place to party and watch the parades.

Had a fantastic time at this Irish pub in New Orleans. It was just like the pubs back home in Ireland - great music and atmosphere! My husband loved the fish & chips and Guinness and I had the bangers & mash with Magners - both of us finished every bite. We were in on a night when there was a real "trad session" and the Chef invited us to join in. What a great night!
