Adequate pub. No complaints.

Frequented this particular pub thrice, and each time a 3/5. Service is good, food is adequate, beer is cold enough, and the atmosphere is exactly what you would expect. Good enough overall. There are few other large pubs in this area, so I shall return.

AUTHENTIC IRISH PUB. VERY BUSY PLACE. TOO NOISY!

The first thing i notice when i walked into POGUE MAHONES was that all the waitresses wore plaid thigh-length skirts - i am glad i arrived here! It is a kind of dark place with dark wood all over. Also it is a very busy and noisy place, i can barely hear myself talking. The waiters/waitresses were very attentive as they came back every once in awhile to check on our needs a few times. All of our food arrive fresh and hot. My coffee was fresh and scalding hot, it came in a generous sized mug too. My seafood chowder was hot and it was very creamy, not bad! My chicken wings were satisfactory, no complaints here! Okay now my Grand Spuds with irish-poutine-style sucked!!! The fries had melted cheese and gravy on top, but the freshcut homemade fries, tasted totally off. My friend who had fries in his dish also complained about the fries tasting YUCK! My other friends were very satisfied with their dishes (fish n chips, liver n onions w mashed potato, chicken pot pie w mashed potatoes, jambalaya). Good service, satisfactory food, unpleasant atmosphere (too noisy)... would i visit again? i dont think i will. Overall satisfactory!

Party of 6. We were there to celebrate. Waited 15 minutes after being seated to ask the host if we could get greeted by our server. The special of the day is $4 tequila and they didn’t have tequila in house. When we said we would be leaving the server simply said “okay bye”. Overall poor experience and won’t be thinking of coming there again.

Service was great and the food was a really good: Cobb salad, pizza, calamari, fish and chips…. We sat on the patio at a fire pit table. The cushions need a good cleaning, replacing or a cover that's easier to manage.

Food was good and waitstaff friendly. The biggest complaint was that the appetizer and main course arrived together, even though we had specifically asked that the main come after. Also there was a young child screeching and running around the patio which was very distracting but no one said anything to the parents.

Attended Pogue Mahone for th Euro 2020 final match. Our server was very attentive and came by often to check how were were doing . The manager called the night before and accommodated us better than expected after a glitch in their online reservation system. The only flaw would be the lack of a covering for the patio as it rained for the first hour or so we wee there and with COVID-19 rules we were unable to go inside the Pub. Will definately be back likely with a larger group next time.

The restaurant was unfortunately understaffed. Our actual server made an effort to provide us with good service. However, the other staff were rude, disrespectful and unattentive. Our party waited exceptionally long for our food and drink. We also watched our drinks sit at the bar for more than ten minutes rather than brought over to us. Our table was adjacent to the bar, but the bartender made no effort. When we asked for a repour of our drinks because they sat for more than ten minutes and warmed, the bartender rolled their ryes. Even cashing out took forever. One of our party was tired from work and admittedly dozing off while we were there. Instead of speaking to him politely and asking what was going on, multiple staff made rude comments and yelled at him from across the bar as if he were drunk and passing out. This was completely unnecessary.

The food was very good but the music was far too loud. The people in my group had to almost yell across the table to be heard, so conversation was very difficult . Please turn the music down!
