If you are looking for some local cuisine that is different from the national chains, look no further than Sean Bolan’s Irish Pub. Open for lunch or dinner, in addition to traditional Emerald Isle fare, you can select from many blackboard specials that are better than typical “pub grub” including gourmet sandwiches, quesadillas, and homemade soups. However, if you are a first timer, I say go for something traditional—the corned beef sandwich is a winner, and the shephard’s pie is like a visit to your Irish nana’s house. Stolen bites from my husband’s plate of the aforementioned pie were eaten with eye-closed awe.
Oh yeah- and they also have a really good selection of beers on tap (Guinness, of course, harp, Boddington’s, etc) plus even greater selection in bottles.
