Cannot Wait to Return!! – This past weekend my husband had a business trip in Baltimore, Maryland and I decided to accompany him to get a break from PA. On Saturday (8/14/10) afternoon my husband and I decided to go explore the sites of Baltimore to find a great place to eat and drink. The concierge suggested that we go to Canton and check out Claddagh Pub because of the lively atmosphere and excellent food. When we walked in the front door of Claddagh's my husband and I were immediately greeted by the two bartenders behind the bar with warm and friendly smiles. We asked for a table outside and were told it would be a fifteen minute wait but were welcome to have a drink at the bar while our table was being set up. While my husband and I sat at the bar we were offered beverages and a menu to look at while we waited. I was very impressed with variety of the menu which ranged from lighter fare such as appetizers and sandwiches to more heavier fares such as pasta and steak entrees. I was also informed by the bartenders that Claddagh's offers daily specials for both lunch and dinner that change every day. The daily dinner specials that evening were both unique and appealing. After looking at the menu we decided to check out the upstairs and found that there were two bars (one was a lounge type bar with cushioned stools and couches), two pool tables, a fooseball table; in addition to all this, there were tons of flat screen tvs throughout the upstairs which were broadcasting every possible sports station on television. While upstairs the manager found us and kindly informed us that our table was ready. I was so impressed with the professionalism of the staff that I felt as though I was at a fine dining restaurant where the menu was reasonably priced and the staff was friendly and approachable. Our server was extremely nice and immediately took our drink orders and read us the daily specials. For an appetizer my husband and I shared the Saffron Oysters (it was a dinner special) and the Crab Dip; both of these appetizers were outstanding- especially the Crab Dip. For dinner I had the Shrimp Scampi, which was bold and rich in flavor- it was excellent, I highly recommend this dish to anyone who dines at Claddagh Pub. My husband had the New York Strip and said it was cooked to the perfect temperature and one of the best steaks he had ever eaten. Being from out of town it was so enjoyable to eat and drink at an establishment where the food was excellent and reasonably priced, the staff was friendly yet very professional, and the atmosphere was lively and welcoming. Overall, our experience at Claddagh Pub was absolutely amazing and we cannot wait to come back to Baltimore to go to eat there again. If you have not been to Claddagh Pub then I highly recommend that you go and check it out.
A Can't MIss – During a recent visit to Baltimore, my wife and I were referred to the Canton area as a place to go and have some drinks and check out the bar scene. We wound up in Claddagh Pub, a busy Irish Pub. Not expecting to eat but did anyway and what a find! We had a great dinner of NY Steak and Crab Cakes, both cooked to perfection. I highly recommend this pub.
The best time in Canton – An inviting atmosphere that welcomes with a thousand smiles. Knowlodgable and over-caring staff that will cater to any need possible. Provides multiple options to eat and drink that accomadates any part of the spectrum, from: fine dining to sports bar to the club seen. All in all, the time in canton.
Best Place in Canton – Of all the bars in Canton, Claddagh Pub is by far the best bar/restaurant. Claddagh's has a lively atmosphere that appeals to all ages.

Every Mon-Fri during happy hour Claddagh's offers half off domestic bottles, import bottles and half-off drafts. In addition to these drink specials, there are also happy hour food specials. My FAVORITE food special is the 30 wings and a pitcher of Miller Lite for $18.00- such a great deal. Also, if you like crab dip then definitely get the crab dip at Claddagh's because it by far the BEST in all of Baltimore- I won't order crab dip anywhere else other than Claddagh's.

Worse ever! Poor management! – Worse restaurant/ bar experience in my life!!! Went to Claddagh's to meet a friend to watch a soccer game at 10am. Upon entering I was carded, cool (and thanx, but really at 10am - I'm drinking coffee not whisky), but then was told my Sigg bottle needed to be confiscated and my computer bag searched. Not like I was entering the US Capitol, I wanted to meet a friend to watch World Cup. The owner, who already was drunk (smelled of booze), told me he needed to take my bag...I said "I'm out of here" and he blocked my way. I squeezed by him and headed to Hudson St and "Stackhouse Pub". Claddagh's is awful and will never go back, I highly recommend "Stackhouse" - no BS, no search and seizure, no cavity search, just nice people, good game and great time
Claddagh Pub is a great place to watch any sporting event!!...especially football!! Great bartenders, food and did I mention the best Orange Crush in town!!
Great service, good food – My girlfriend and I came here on a Saturday evening for dinner. The service was very friendly and the food was good as well, especially the speciality Irish Coffees that they prepared. The place has two levels, the downstairs dining area and an upstairs lounge that has pool tables, other games and a bar. Prices were reasonable (beers were $3.50). The downstairs level has the front bar and then a separate room for dining as well as tables in the back.
Great retaurant – I have been to Claddagh's a lot and have never had a bad experiece. Food has always been good and the bar is always fun to hang out in. Per the other comments, no one has ever been rude to me. Always a great experience.
This Canton watering hole fosters Gaelic camaraderie through hearty grub and sudsy mugs. – In Short
What this pub lacks in authenticity, it makes up for in Guinness signs. Mirrors and antique advertising decorate almost every square inch, while larger-than-life murals cover the remaining wall space. As the decor suggests, lager flows easily and often from the taps. Claddagh also has a good selection of high-quality local brews like DeGroen's and Clipper City to complement the Irish classics. On the second floor are pool and foosball tables. The menu tends towards heavy fare.
