The weather may be cooling off, but lunch is heating up at Claddagh Irish Pub! The restaurants, located in Mason, OH (5075 Deerfield Blvd.) and Newport, KY (1 Levee Way, Suite 2122), have newly redesigned patios, complete with fire features to keep guests comfortable even when the fall afternoons have a chill in the air. Variety and affordability can be found across the lunch menu at both pubs.
“Nothing says fall like a hearty lunch and a pint of Guinness,”says Karen Murphy, corporate director of food and beverage. “That why we’re menuing traditional favorite dishes from the homeland, all priced under $8.”
What better way to have a customary Irish lunch than with an order of Claddagh’s crave-worthy Fish & Chips ($6.99), a wild cod fillet coated in a Bass Ale batter and fried up golden brown, accompanied by pub chips, coleslaw, and tartar sauce. A handheld lunch version of a traditional Irish breakfast is the Irish Breakfast Roll ($5.99), with guest’s choice of Irish rasher (bacon) or banger (sausage), a fried egg, and cheddar cheese served on a toasted roll with a side of fries. The Shepherd’s Pie ($6.99) is a tasty combo of ground beef, root vegetables, and green peas, topped with mashed potatoes. For a vegetarian-friendly option, try the Claddagh Flatbread ($7.99) loaded with fresh buffalo mozzarella, marinara sauce, sweet onion, and thyme.
The Jameson Burger ($6.99) is a half-pound steak patty cooked to order, smothered with signature Jameson Sauce and cheddar cheese sauce, topped off with onion strings. For a homey and comforting sandwich, the Meatloaf Melt ($6.99), a hearty slice of beef meatloaf in rich gravy with Swiss cheese and onion straws on sourdough bread, is sure to hit the spot. Sandwiches come with a side order of fries.
