The riff at Claddagh on a traditional Irish pub is always as a cozy spot to eat — but never more so than on a cold, rainy day.
The menu is filled with all sorts of traditional Irish dishes, such as corned beef and cabbage, shepherd’s pie and a full Irish breakfast served all day. But it’s hard to go to an Irish pub and not order the standard fish and chips.
Every pub has its own variation on the classic British takeout meal.
At Claddagh, thick fillets of fresh cod are dunked in a Bass ale-based batter and fried until golden brown and crispy. The crunchy coating has a slightly sweet flavor almost reminiscent of a funnel cake.
The fish rests atop a pile of thick-cut french fries. A small cup of coleslaw rounds out the meal.
Priced at $13.99 for a dinner portion, the fish and chips aren’t inexpensive.
But, on Mondays, both Claddagh locations in Columbus have a great deal: Buy one order of fish and chips, and get a second order free. The deal applies only to the dinner-sized portion (8 to 9 ounces of fish). The smaller lunch portion (5 to 6 ounces) goes for $6.99.
Yet the offer is available all day — including at lunch. Two beverages must be purchased as well.
