We went to Ballydoyle recently on a Saturday night to hear a local band. They have a nice venue, with a large stage and a decent dancefloor. And the acoustics were good. They do have a cover charge when the bands are playing. Our server...More

As an Irish pub, this place sucks. The decor is positively thrift shop cheap and does not work. The food is greasy, not properly seasoned and not properly cooked. Will never go back and cannot recommend anything they serve.

The menu has a lot of good choices that they've had for a long time. It may be time to add a few more items or mix it up a little. Awesome place to go before the Paramount Theater.

I've had several good and several not so good experiences here. It may not be consistent but there are good food options and a large drink menu.
