This place looks so incredibly cozy from the outside with the lights and plants. Walking in, it's a charming and warm pub that is way huger than expected. There is a large back room and live music play after 8/9p.m. in both the front and the back. The beer list is sizable, but I stuck with my favorite IPA. The waitress brought my friend the wrong beer and seemed a bit out of it, but it was all fine in the end. She had an adorable accent, so we didn't take it too harshly. Food-wise, it's great they have an entire vegetarian section on the menu! Points there. I ordered the black bean burger, though, and it was so disappointing. Bland and dry and so nothing special even with the mango salsa. The appetizers were better. The mac and cheese was creamy, hot, and plentiful. If I come back, I would just order that again. Other fried options pretty standard. Overall, a nice place to come and have a drink and enjoy the music, maybe with an appetizer.

MAC N CHEESE. So good. I wish it was an entree. Or not, because then I'd eat too much of it. The other food (onion rings and calamari) that I got was great too. Lots of beer selection, but the staff didn't seem to know it (she was Irish and I think freshly here, so European service might be what you expect--nice but not knowledgeable, but totally willing to go check) The bands were great, and I usually don't think Irish bands are (after living in Ireland for 2 years and just getting tired of it).

By far my favorite bar and usually our "go-to" bar when getting just a drink or going out for the night. The live music is NEVER a let down and the bartenders are always friendly. It's a great place to sit outside during the nicer months and I love their clam chowder. Great bar food and great beer selection.

Great Irish bar to go to. Two main rooms - one has live irish music and the other has other live music. Good drinks and always a fun time.

I came here for a Meetup because the other tavern we were supposed to go to was too full. The beer selection at The Burren is rather typical and mediocre with Stella, Sierra Nevada, and the like. The food is also distinctly mediocre. Not horrible, but nothing memorable either. The main plus was just that they had enough seats for our large group.

Two of us dined here late this Saturday morning. The place was empty, other than for us and the two staff. Our server was friendly and attentive. We ordered the eggs benedict and the french toast. All of it was delicious, served promptly, and prepared well. As we were eating a few other patrons trickled in, but the place was still mostly empty when we left. We enjoyed our meals and planned to return.

Love going to this authentic Irish bar. Great place to hear local musicians playing in the round. Local and national musicians play the back room. The only place in the area to get a really tasty Guinness. Festive lively atmosphere. The waitstaff and bartenders are wonderful!
