great food and atmosphere, great interior design with fun antiques and a cool bar. Awesome bloody mary, really good burgers and rueben sandwich. A bit small inside so make sure you leave enough time for a good experience.

Paddy's is one of my favorite places for lunch! Great selection of food, daily specials including some Irish favorites! Great place to visit with friends or to meet for business. Service is dependable and always friendly! Feel like a beer they have that here too!

Although busy on a Friday (no open tables), our group of 16 was welcomed in. We were seated in their private basement dining room. Service was prompt, friendly, and excellent. Even the chef stopped by after our meals and asked how it was. I had the Irish Stew and Irish Reuben Rolls, both were good and served hot. Friends had... More

Meal started with slow service and went down hill from there. Irish cheese curds were good. When ordering the speciality of shrimp, the waitress wasn't clear that they didn't have roasted potatoes and I changed the vegetable to chips.

This is what an Irish pub looks like in my day dreams. Soooo cozy and cute. Beautiful bar and wood trim. Very nice staff. We had pub nacho appetizer... yum! Fish and chips were very good, I recommend the fish in any form. I brought my 7 year old and parents and all three generations enjoyed it and can't wait... More

Paddy's is the place to hang out in Ft. Atkinson. Food was decent, but nothing out of the ordinary. Much like sports bar fare anywhere.

We love coming here for lunch or dinner or drinks! The food is always fresh and delicious. They also have different specials as well. The space is very small and cramped so get there early if you are going during a busy time!
