Not just a tourist trap...The biggest tourist trap. – I was wandering around the Wharf killing time one day with some friends ( I'm a local, by the way), and wanted to grab a bite and a beer somewhere we haven't been before. We saw Tiernans and thought we'd give it a try. First impression was it looked and felt like a large cafeteria with a bar. Decent beer selection, typical pub food menu, etc. The bartenders seemed like amateurs at best. Measured cocktails with jiggers, ran around like chickens with their heads cut off when it was just a little busy, seemed confused. They didn't even make their coffee drinks with the type of liquor that was specified on the drink menu. If it said Kahlua on the menu, they poured some generic stuff. Same with a few other ones. Food was mediocre. I asked for extra ketchup AND THEY CHARGED ME FOR IT! The corned beef was awful (I thought this was an irish pub?) Expensive for what you got (even for a tourist trap). I definitely will not be back.
Very cold atmosphere – Nothing but mirrors and advertising on the wall, very empty with a kind of cafeteria vibe, definitely could use some ambience. I waited a while for my food. Pricey too...
irish pub plus – this place is awesome - excellent food, service, and music every night of the week. accessible location on fisherman's wharf, good mix of locals and tourists.
Welcoming Irish bar brings an impressive beer selection and some live music to the Wharf. – In Short
This friendly pub offers an international beer list (20 on draft and another 20 by the bottle) and a menu of pub grub favorites. Irish-inflected dishes include shepherd's pie, mussels steamed in a Guinness broth and bangers and beans. Tourists line the bar and crowd tables by day, and live music amps up the atmosphere by night. Musicians play everything from acoustic to rock to traditional Irish seven nights a week.
