    Restaurant question

    We are coming to town for the Texas game on the 9th. My buddy wants to try Dublin Bay. I have never been there. How is it? What's their specialty?

    Re: Restaurant question

    I liked it, but I like everything. Don't know what you would call their specialty, but I liked the bangers and mash.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Restaurant question

    Great thread right before lunch. Dublin is one of those a little bit of everything places. My wife loves their buffalo chicken sandwich.

    Re: Restaurant question

    Dublin Bay is great, reasonably price and the food is excellent. It's owned by the same guy that owns Wallaby's, but I think Dublin Bay has better food. My wife and I go there quite often and we've never received poor service, the staff is very friendly, the manager is there about every day it seems and he's always busting his hump doing something.

    Their specialty is their Irish food, they make a mean Reuben, and things like beef boxty and sheperds pie are all really good. They also have really good potato soup if you like that. Aside from that they have quite a few burgers and sandwiches which are all good, and some dinner type entrees like lamb/steak/whatever but I haven't gotten those yet.

    Re: Restaurant question

    I've had the Potato Crusted Mahi sandwich there, it was very good. The Rueben is also quite tasty (according to my dad). Was there on a Sunday for lunch and the place was completely empty, so I don't know what that says. The staff was very courteous and knowledgable about the selections, a great overall experience.

    Re: Restaurant question

    Their hot wings are really good. I really like the Sheperds Pie, it's really filling though so don't plan on running a marathon after you eat it. Favorite is the reuben though. Half reuben and a bowl of potato soup and I'm set.

    Re: Restaurant question

    I think they specialize in Guinness. I like their buffalo chicken sandwich too.

    Hickory park is good, but overplayed. I guess if you come from out of town then it's probably a good choice, but living in Ames I get tired of it. Although you can't beat their prices. That being said, I went there last night and it was great, but I probably won't go back for a month or more now.

    Mmmm. I love buffalo chicken sandwiches. I have had some really bad ones so I will have to try Dublins if you say its tasty. Do they sauce it up really good?

    I make a point to hit Hickory Park quite often, but a little variety is nice.
