Description: For the Irish, a Pub is far more than a bar… a Pub is a community gathering place – an overgrown “family room” where members of the neighborhood meet to share the latest news, laugh, and ofttimes solve the world’s problems. At an Irish Pub, the idea of being a “regular” is, well, a bit of a lunacy… one can no more be a regular in a Pub than a regular in one’s own home! For the Irish, the Pub is a home – not for its beer, or stout, or libations, but for its environment of family… comfort… and safety from the stormy rains that grow the Irish countryside emerald green in grass and clover. For a traveler, the attraction of the Pub is the Irish philosophy that there are no strangers, but rather friends not yet met. To enter a Pub is to drop by a friend’s home… the greeting is warm and genuine, the service is gracious, the experience is relaxing and fun.

Highly recommend Dublin Bay. What a treat!! My standard at all Irish restaurants is Shepard Pie... this one was amazing, thank you.

I absolutely love going to Dubin Bay. Their prices are fair, and the food is amazing! Soda Bread is a must, and if you're looking for the irish experience, I highly suggest O'Briens Stew.

Thank Tricia A

Amazing beer selection. Crab cakes, walleye and lamb stew all great. A touch expensive but really tasty. Excellent service.

My husband and I stopped for a quick lunch. It was fine. Nothing amazing. He had the turkey cheesesteak and I had the buffalo chicken salad. The buffalo sauce was sweet, kind of strange. My husband liked his sandwich but again nothing overwhelmingly good. Service was fine. A lot of staff standing around

Being from rural Western NY, we really do not have a decent Irish restaurant. This place was spot on and offered traditional Irish cuisine as well as some American favorites. Our party of 13 ordered Bangers & Mash, Fish & Chips, Steak and yes, real Shepherd's Pie. That was the best. Portions are very fair. Hand cut French fries. The one item that stands out was the Onion Rings. They were unbelievable. Salted caramel crunch cheesecake topped off for a very nice meal. We averaged about $16 a person (minus alcohol). Wait Staff was very accommodating and never stopped smiling. Restrooms were well kept. Tableware was clean (my biggest pet peeve).The overall food quality was just excellent. I have nothing bad to say about this pub/ restaurant. 5 stars. I will eat here again and again.
