The Life of Reilly Restaurant Review

: Yes, you can watch the Ravens play at Life of Reilly, but the young crowd is more likely to be cheering a rugby game, jockeying for seats on Trivia Night (Wednesday), or engaged in good, old-fashioned conversation. They will also, most likely, be enjoying the food. In true Irish pub tradition, such rib-sticking classics as Guinness stew with champ and fish ‘n’ chips are a specialty, although you’re sure to find plenty of burgers, crab cakes, and other American comfort food as well. If you like a pint with your shepherd’s pie, be sure to join the Guinness Club: when members have consumed 100 pints, they get their names on the bar. The pub also claims to have the largest selection of Irish whiskeys in Baltimore.
