The Kerryman Restaurant Review

: By day, The Kerryman serves as a nice little lunch spot with a snug patio, private upstairs seating and comfort food aplenty. By night, however, the pub’s Irish roots become obvious, with shots and drinks flowing freely and merriment all around. A word to the wise: Those seeking sustenance over a liquid dinner will want to come early to enjoy their meals in a more serene setting. On weekends, the upstairs bar transforms into a full-on dance party set to rock classics, 90s, hip hop and mainstream songs. Menu favorites include the warm salmon and pear salad (salmon, grape tomatoes and Brie, tossed in raspberry vinaigrette) and the macaroni and smoked Gouda with an unexpected chip-and-cheese-sauce topping.
