terrible service – Will not go back here. Absolute worst service and waitress. Went here with 5 co-workers and we all hated it, will not be back and told the entire office to avoid it. Food is decent but not worth the hassle.Thanks for nothing
Great Music! – I've been there a few times. There are quite a bit of great live bands that play there!
Average – I've been to Brenanan's a few times, and was never really impressed with the food. The wings are good in size, but in flavor they are truly lacking. If you can eat the hot wings here, then be warned to order the mild anywhere else you go, And what is up with pricing them by the pound anyway? I mean do I have to bring a scale with me to weigh the order when it gets to my table?
Brennan's serves the same bar food as almost every other bar in the Buffalo area does, and they don't really do it any better than anyone else does. There are some places where you get a lot more for your money, but not in Clarence.
Finally why do they have a patio that is facing an extremely busy parking lot? How refreshing is it to sit outside while cars are circling the lot looking for a parking place. I never thought that the smell of exhaust was a real appetizing touch.
Oh, and if you are thinking that it is an Irish pub, then you'll be disappointed to say that least. Just because the name is Irish and they have Guiness and Harp does not make it an Irish pub. In a true Irish Pub you get a free punch in the mouth whenever you order a "Black and Tan." And the people next to you will gladly talk to you when you sit down and even resist the temptation to call you a fool, even if you are one.
HORRIBLE Service – sat at table at 9:15pm.....waitress did not come to take any order until 9:40......was served food by a person in street clothes with a beer in hand........worst service ever, will never go again
Astonishing that this made "Best of Buffalo" – I picked up the 2009 Best of Buffalo resturant reviews and found it ASTONISHING to find this in there! This is one brewery I will never visit again. I grew up on Irish food, love it...and they do it a great injustice.
We sat on the patio, the "furnature" left a lot to be desired. The ambiance was horrible. The food was cold, which really should have been helped considering they were dead that night....also it took FOREVER between courses! Dessert took over 30 minutes.
The "buffalo burger" I believe it was was bland and whole combination of igredients was poor. The dish I had was also bad. I would never go back there.
Horrible – To make a long story short a buddy and I were drinking for a while and as we walked outside to leave we both realized we should call a friend or cab. The bouncers would not let us in to make a call or call a cab for us how ridicolous is that.
Darkness, Beer, and kids – This place has the potential to have a great atmosphere...instead it is just a good atmosphere. It is very dark inside, hiding some of the warn out motif from 1990! Also, the food is bland and taste like they opened it from a Sysco Can! Overall this place is average. Best bet if you want to eat, or see what your doing, is to go to Tully's across the street.
Really great spot - hidden gem in Buffalo – Nice variety of flavors, even grilled - which were quite excellent. I would have to give Brennan's the nod over Duff's & Anchor for overall flavors & quality. The brew selection sealed the deal.
Editorial Review by Christy Buena – Locals flock here for appetizers, burgers, 13 beers on tap and 24 bottled selections. A kids menu is also offered.
Food and Fun – Brennan's is a great place . They have an awesome outdoor patio to take full advantage of the short summers here in Buffalo. I've never been disappointed with a meal. Because it's always busy, you can expect a little slower service but the staff is always friendly. After dinner, the bar is a BLAST! The crowd is a very eclectic mix of young and young at heart. The all wood bar is a comfortable place to cop a squat with a brewsky and listen to the great bands they venue. When the bartenders aren't busting thier butts to keep up with demand, they are very outgoing and chatty. Looking for someplace casual to have a great meal, a few drinks, and just hang out? You've found it at Brennan's.
