The happy hour bar crowd is a good judge of a popular place. If it’s getting crowded at 3pm chances are they have a decent amount of business the rest of the time. Pappy’s Corner Pub is a bar and restaurant that is clearly one of those places. We have visited this place a number of times and procrastinated in reviewing it, which isn’t fair, because they offer above average bar food in a comfortable, clean environment.
Atmosphere: The outside of this bar isn’t very inviting due to its office building appearance. There’s also confusion in an Irish pub looking too clean and this place is way too clean. A big part of an Irish pubs appeal is its rustic charm, and Pappy’s is somewhat lacking in this department. The restaurant and bar is large, open, bright, with a mix of booths and wooden tables (high-top & regular-sized) scattered across a white tile floor. Outside there is a nice large patio furnished with chairs and tables. The crowd was on the more mature side and comprised of mostly men, but it was happy hour and there were Tv’s spewing sports all over the bar.
Service: The service was good but nothing over the top. There were several servers on duty taking care of their designated areas and two bartenders keeping the drinks flowing. All in all we had no complaints in the service department.
Drinks: A very average stocked bar with a few micros and domestics on tap. That being said, we had one of the best bloody mary’s here we have ever had and a pretty decent Tokyo iced tea. With $2.50 domestic drafts, $3.50 micro drafts and $3 wells during happy hour, we had no complaints regardless of selection.
Food: The food is the redeeming quality for this pub with items like fish n chips, burgers, sandwiches and salads on the menu. Being served the typical pub food without the typical saturation of grease was refreshing. They have a nice selection of side items, but we have to recommend the fries – they were amazing. We tried the Black and Blue burger and the Philly Cheese steak sandwich on this visit and were pleased as usual.
Amenities: Shuffle board, HD TV’s, fish tank, patio, kids menu, catering menu, banquet room, projection screen TV, video games.
Parking: There is ample parking in the lot surrounding Pappy’s, take out.
