Horrible service – I completely agree with the comment below. This place has great food (typical pub food i.e. burgers and wings) but the server was out of my mind rude. I had to literally bring my glass up to the bar and refill it since she hadn't come by the table in over 15 minutes and I ordered hot wings. When I asked her why she was being so rude, so started complaining about how many other customers were there (there were a whopping 3 of us).

Another note is if you like to be looked in the eye when being served don't come here...they hardly say a word and don't accommodate whatsoever.

I would recommend this place only if you can get the food for take out and can avoid the horrendous service. If not, I wouldn't recommend it in a million years.

Best pub for miles around! – I first went to the Playwright shorlyl after it opened back in 2000 and I was hooked. From the excellent Irish pub grub to the Guinness on tap and the smiling (which is something for Miami Beach) friendly staff, there's no better place to spend lazy afternoon talking with one friend or a dozen.

It's great for an early dinner too with a menu that has some surprising and delicious items on it at great prices when compared with the surrounding restaurants.

In addition, the weekend sees the Playwright become jam packed with happy drunk tourists that are there to have a good time. If you're in the mood for one of those rip-roaring easy pickup joints, this is the time to come.

It's also an excellent sports bar with monitors everywhere and a projector at one end with food specials during big events like the Superbowl or World Series. What's not to like?

Bad, bad experience at the Playwright – I hate to say it, but I'm not going back to this place. I went there with a group of 6 (six) and put down my credit card for the first round of shots to celebrate a friends birthday. Over the course of the night others in the group gave their cards to the bartender for drinks and food. At the end of the night, everything ordered was on my tab with the explanation that it was "easier that way." Try working out a $400 tab with people that had left. Caution! The catty and inefficient staff will stun you.

The best place to meet people! – My friend who is Miami local took us to Playwrights, it is a great place with a good mix of people. We meet a ton of random people from all over. It is easy to get drinks and the bartenders are really nice. It is much more chill than a lot of places in Miami and was welcome break from the high priced clubs. I would definitely go there again.

Gotta Love the PW – I'm a PW regular - know all of the boys....the girl that everyone keeps referring to below also used to date Mick Jagger's body guard, Adrienne Gard (the Aussie that takes all the crazy fans down during the shows)! I used to see M in pictures with the Stones when they were traveling.......only a real Stones fan would know that- just thought I would share a bit of PW trivia with the Beach!!! -I don't think she knows that I know that....don't tell her that I told you... -LK

Disagree With Below...Was A Great Superbowl Atmosphere – I totally disagree with the below comments from some idiot who probably didn't realize that he was in South Beach and bars were going to be chaotic no matter where you were going to be. I am sure one of his drunk friends stumbled out and was giving the bouncer flack. My friends and I were also here all day on Sunday, and had such a great time that we came back on Monday too! The service was great, although the drinks were a bit pricey. It was a great atmosphere for the game....we managed to get a few seats at the bar where this awesome (and gorgeous I might add) bartender Maggie, served us all night. I came back Monday just to see her and that great pub again. Unlike the the comments from below, I would recommend this bar to everyone who ventured down south here to Miami. Thanks for a great weeekend!

Bad Experience – On Superbowl day, our party was there most of the day, running a tab ,one member of our party went

outside and was refused entry by the stupid gorilla bouncers even though his server verified he had

a running tab. We will never go back to Playwrights, its off the VIP list as far as we're concerned And we

will tell all our friends and every blog we know.

Atypical for South Beach - Authentic Irish Bar – Just because you have an Irish name for your bar and serve Guinness does not mean authenticity but this is the real deal. Not only is The Playwright Pub a transplant from Ireland in the decor, it is a greatly refreshing atmosphere from the typical South Beach pomp and club scene. If you are looking for a bar not a night club, it is a good find. Shhhh, don't let everyone know, there will be a line out the door if word gets out.
