Enjoyed a great lunch out at Spunkys this week... this restaurant is always warm and welcoming… Full of happy people… Great food, wonderful service, and a casual pub type atmosphere.

A group of 8 went and each of us ordered a different meal and all were good. Great service and lots of interacting with the waitress even though the restaurant was busy. Definitely will go back.

We came in on a tip from a parishioner. I was hungry and they certainly gave me plenty of food. We ate at the bar. Mackenzie was our bar tender/ waiter. She was sweet and attentive. I would come here again

Stopped by for lunch as we were intrigued by the name. Very friendly staff, good food and reasonable prices. Had the sirloin for $7.99. Good value and well prepared. On the 17th of each month they have their world famous corned beef. They sell out quickly so stop by for lunch or dinner and enjoy.

We were a large party, called ahead for reservations and they weren't close to being ready for us. The food was ok but wouldn't really recommend the fried mushrooms. Pretty tasteless. The nachos were buried under lettuce...what?!...so wasn't impressed with them either. Personally, I think the place is overrated. Wouldn't go on my own motivation but my friends like it... More

We have had salads, sandwiches, burgers, and fish and chips. All of it was very good except the fish and chips weren't that great. An Irish pub should have better fish and chips.

A neighborhood favorite with great food and service. Plenty of free parking. We love the smothered chicken!

We originally wanted seafood but, upon reading reviews for local seafood restaurants, discovered that their seafood came frozen from foreign countries. No thank you! Since almost every locally-owned restaurant in the area is closed on Sunday, we ended up at Spunky McDoogle's. I was a little hesitant because of the 89 sanitation grade, but the place looked clean, they had... More

Went for a late dinner around 9 - and still there were a decent amount of patrons. This place is popular with the locals - always a good sign. We did wait a long time for our food but we're in no hurry. I had also been warned to expect that. Our waitress was very nice and attentive and the... More
