Prideless Management – The wine we ordred had turned and apparently the menu is just a good idea, but not necessarily the way your food will be prepared. Our waiter apologized by saying chef was "lazy". management said they "hoped we'd come back". Rest assured we won't.
A GREAT, TRUE PUB EXPERIENCE! – This is my favorite new place. If you like being in a real pub, you will love Darcy's Bistro. Good Grog, good eats, good happy hour, outdoor patio, convenient location, what more could you want?
Fun Place with decent food – This is a solid pub. Not usually too crowded. Decent food. Decent drink prices, great selection of spirits. Good specials. Summer is really fun when they open front doors and allow for seating on the patio. Can get a little noisy, which doesn't make sense cause it's not really that big of a place.
got ripped off!!! – left a 20% cash tip and was also charged a tip on my card of 25-30% after looking at my card statement. i need to follow up with the others in my party if their cards were charged additional too. DO NOT GO HERE - KEEP YOUR RECEIPTS
Formerly great place that went downhill – Darcy's used to be a great pub with and awesome happy hour. New management just recently made it all go downhill: The price for the ever so famous Tappas burgers has gone up by 50% and additionally has turned the full size burgers into tiny White-Castle style sliders. To make matters worse, the good beers such as Murphy's are no longer happy hour eligible. To top it all off, their happy hour ends actually at 5:45 and not at 6:00 as posted and advertised, since they intentionally set their clock ahead. When I asked the server about this I was told it has to do with the economy. No bailout for Darcy's!
Great food, Fun atmosphere, really horrible service and most of these reviews, they wrote themselves. – First, let me say that I would have given three stars except for the fact that two of the reviews here were so obviously written by interested parties that it is sad. No real customers use language like, "I often have business meetings over lunch at Darcy's and never wonder if everyone will be pleased." Or how about "Glenn and Paul behind the bar, always remembering the names of their customers, always quick with a good joke, these guys." People just don't talk that way, except in commercials. It gets even more suspicious when you look at the other restaurants that these guys have reviewed. One has only reviewed another Ishish pub and he bashed it. The other hasn't reviewed anything else. WHAT A GIVEAWAY! (For the record, I haven't reviewed anything else on this cite either but became a member just to point out the fraud)
Now the reason that I only gave them three stars to begin with is the exact same reason that another person only gave then one star, the service, It really was terrible. The waiter forgot about us and spent most of his time at the bar chatting it up with some girls. We had to signal him twice and once, when we were ready for another round, I actually had to go and find him. We did enjoy our food though. The mac and cheese was particulalry interesting. And the atmosphere was fun, if not completely pub like. But for their terrible service and obvious attempts to write thier own reviews which lacks all integrity and is not a far cry from LYING, it is a nice place.
A nice Irish pub, good beers and solid food – We have 2 kids (8/5) and like take them, the kids always eat well and Saturday night kids eat free. They have nice Guinness and a good menu of food. Their burgers and salads are very solid.
Nice atmosphere for a drink or a drink and a bite, and with the kids, a good bargain!
The service is reliable as well.
Great food and fun atmosphere - great Happy Hour place, too! – I love this place! The food is always delicious and visually appealing. I often have business meetings over lunch at Darcy's and never wonder if everyone will be pleased. I have never had a problem asking - and receiving - special requests on food items. The staff really makes you feel that local, home-town feel - like you can walk in and almost hear them yell 'Norm!'.
I highly recommend Darcy's - for lunch, dinner and happy hour - check out their late night drink and menu specials.
The neighborhood restaurant and bar gets an upscale interpretation at this DTC location. – In Short
With soft colors, upscale appointments and a sophisticated menu, Darcy's looks more like a restaurant than a pub. Huge windows in front open to become entrances to an outdoor patio. Offerings range from gourmet food and wine to pub fare and beer. Starters include onion soup, with melted swiss and Parmesan cheeses, or oysters on the half shell. Entrees include corned beef with cabbage, fish-and-chips, shepherd's pie and Irish whisky chicken.
horrible service – By far some of the worst service I have ever encountered. From the beginning our waitress was not good. She started by taking a long time to bring our drinks. OK, fair enough after all I did order a guiness. Wait it gets much worse. Then I asked for a menu and she promptly hands me the drink menu which is already on the tableand walks off before I have a chance to say dinner menu. :( The fact that I asked for a menu should of been a que that obviously it was for a dinner menu, come on! Next she continue to take forever despite non guiness orders and is about as disinterested as can be.
So, I let the manager know that our waitress is MIA. Really, not much better. It gets worse until we finally decide to give up. Instead of unwinding after work we all get wound up.
The food is pretty good and the beer is great but the service is some of the worst I have ever had the displeasure to endure.
