What a name Workman's Friend. This place is a lively and hopping scene all the time. It has a large bar once you go through the front door with plenty of seating and standing room. What really makes the place is that you go down this narrow hall and end up in an amazing high fenced in back patio that has another bar and plenty of different sectioned off places to stand or sit. This is also a popular place to watch sporting events. It has an all around COZY feel to it.
The beer selection here is a little limited, but he service was excellent and the food was pretty stellar. Our waiter was great and I got the sweet potato gnocchi, which was absolutely outstanding. Highly recommend this place for their food and drink options. They have options for vegetarians and kids who might be picky eaters. The atmosphere was nice and they have a great outdoor patio, too.
Had the fried oysters and pickled fried okra for appetizers. Phenomenal flavors, but nothing compared to the salmon I ordered. The skin was mouthwatering. I mean it was out-of-this-world. The salmon itself was cooked perfectly with great flavor. Also tried the vegetable curry, largely root vegetables and super filling but tasty. They give you a huge portion, too.
Wow...came in with no knowledge of this place and I am amazed! The cocktails are amazing, I had the honey badger and the workman’s friend. Got the slider appetizer as a quick bite and holy tastebuds!!! What an amazing bite of food. I would encourage anyone to try this place out! I’ll be coming back for sure!
This is one of my favorite places to be. Great people and service. On top of that they have delicious Irish fare and good drinks to top it off. Try the Workman's Friend if you want a good stiff drink.
