    The owner/manager and wait staff were friendly and attentive. The food was very good - we ordered the smoked salmon breakfast, mussels, crab cake w eggs. And the bloody mary's were made fresh and delicious. Would visit again if back in the area.

    Well it has sold and is closing in a couple weeks and the thin menu and bland/cold food reflected a distinct lack of interest by all. Our waitress was nice though.

    Four of us met for a combined business/social dinner and all were happy with the choice of restaurants. Thumbs up for the deviled eggs, Irish egg rolls, steak frites, bangers, shepherd's pie, flat iron steak, apple pie, and bread pudding.. Service was quick and friendly. A 4 for ambiance because, well, what can you say about tables on a service road? Not the restaurant's fault, but I can't give it a 5. And a 4 for value because the prices certainly aren't in the low or moderate range. Worthy of 5 stars overall!

    Always enjoy sitting at the bar for lunch on weekends. Sharon the host and Mara the bartender are wonderful folks and enjoy a loyal group of diverse and interesting regulars. It’s a bit of a hike for us from our home In McLean, but the trip is always worth it. Best Irish breakfast anywhere! What’s not to like about Lahinch?

    Beautiful Irish pub, fireplace and even music. Surprising the corned beef sandwich was dry, u seasoned, no fat. Bland. Mussels were good but not the best. Caesar salad and fish and chips good as as soup. Too bad no free Irish Soda Bread put out. They need a better chef. The place is a 10 for service, restaurant ambience, friendliness, location, cleanliness, but sadly they need a new chef. The Italian restaurant next door is not as nice looking but food much better and was twice as crowded.

    We enjoyed a fun evening of music and delish food at Lahinch for St Patty's Day. A prix fixe menu was served with 6 choices of entrees.. food was very good. Took a little while to get our drinks, but service was great despite the restaurant being packed. Lahinch did not disappoint on St. Patty's Day!

    My wife and I had fish n chips. Fish is good, but the chips were soggy. The beer was good and there was good selection. Service was excellent and they even called my mobile prior to my reserved time to ask where we would like to sit because there was a big party. Seating was good, but the noise level was still high due to the party - it was not the fault of the restaurant. It was a Saturday but will definitely try again on a weekday.

    The food is a bit pricey but is always very good. Service is normally great other than they often push out the main course while still eating the appetizers. It's happened about half the time I've eaten here (including this visit). On this visit, our server was taking care of too many tables. She still was able to check on us, but once a party of about 15 was seated (in addition to the other 5 or so tables she had), things slowed down near the end of the meal. Not at all her fault. Overall, a good meal and will absolutely go back again.

    All of us order salads, which was great! The soup was okay. We didn’t care for the Irish soda bread. The regular bread was excellent and warm slices. There was a band playing before we left our dinner. However, not everyone wore a mask in the restaurant when serving and even some customers didn’t wear masks. We would definitely go back though.
