Default Claddagh's Irish Pub

I remember eating at one in Lansing, MI. I found out that there are several located in the midwest, see if you're near one.

Awesome food and beer:http://www.claddaghirishpubs.com/index.php

Irish Pub Concepts (www.irishpubconcepts.com) is responsible for 280 Irish pubs in the United States. IPC is owned by Diageo-Guinness USA (DGUSA), the operative entity being Guinness.


Quote:
In 1992, [DGUSA] embarked on a mission to facilitate the development of authentic, high quality Irish Pubs outside of Ireland. It realized that a large portion of its Guinness sales outside of Ireland came from Irish Pubs, with a large portion coming from the most authentic ones.
I noticed the prevalance of similar (but not the same, lots of varying elements) Irish pubs with authentic brick-a-brack a few years ago and did a little research. I wouldn't be surprised if this is one of them. Don't get me wrong they have a good product and patronize them when I can.

Check out the site.

We have one in Livonia here (MI), walked up and didn't really go in.

Two reasons:

1. The person I was with really did not want to see the ex having a birthday party in the bar.

2. The place seemed like one of those joints that if you make anything less than 100k/yr your either the bus boy or your in the wrong place.

I'll need to check it out though.

We have one that recently opened in Madison, WI. The food is good and they have a good selection of draft British/Irish beers. I had bangers and mashed one time and some big ass breakfast sandwich another time. SWMBO had the sheppard's pie, very good as well.

Prices were fair as well.

Madison one is in the new Greenway mall area. It's actually in Middleton pretty close to Capital Brewery-- other side of the beltline. It's actually right next to where I work.

I'm more partial to Brocach Irish Pub downtown. Their food is better.
