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!

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!

It took 45 minutes to receive our food and we all just had sandwiches. No discount or compensation was offered for the delay. The food is pretty good but if you go here, expect to wait a looooooong time. I went for after work drinks a couple months ago and it took over 25 min for the first round of drinks to come. As a result, my colleagues often opt to go somewhere else even though this is the closest place.

Server was lovely and friendly; food was great. Only letdown was that I asked to substitute fries for tater tots on my fish and chip order and was informed that there would be a charge for that. What they didn't tell me was that the charge would be the full price of the tater tot appetizer. For that price, I would have just ordered fish and chips and the tater tot appetizer, gotten the fries with the meal and the tots on the side. Instead, I paid extra for less food. Not my idea of a surcharge.

The serving staff are very good, that’s not the issue. We arrived st noon, our food came 50 minutes later, this is far too long. We were told there were 3 larger parties for lunch at the same time. Quite frankly, that’s not my problem and not a good excuse. Delivery of food/ drinks needs to happen in a more timely manner.
