We often find ourselves traveling down 287 and need a place to eat in the Parsippany area. Not really knowing the area, I turn to the urbanspoon app on my phone to find a place. On this particular day, I did just that and came up with a restaurant. We were on our way and passed this place, a location we'd been to previously, back when it was a Bennigan's. For whatever reason, my husband decided to pull in here instead.
The decor is nice; it reminded me of Bennigan's, though classier and without all the junk on the walls. The bar area had some great Irish type quotes about drinking and/or life.
We were luckily there right before the lunch rush, which arrived about 20 minutes after we did. Our service was pretty good, but it seemed like the food took a long time to arrive considering how few people were in the restaurant. That might have been, though, because our boys were hungry and as a result, quite unhappy.
Our food was pretty typical chain restaurant fare. Since we went for lunch, we stuck to the sandwich menu, which really doesn't reflect Irish-ness at all. The entrees are much more Irish inspired, but I never understand why an Irish pub would have quesadillas on their appetizer menu (on The Next Food Network Star, they'd say the chef wasn't sticking to his/her POV), but I guess that's what Americans like with their beer and casual fare--thank you, Friday's!
So the short is, it's typical. Nothing to really remark about, but good enough for a fast, casual meal. It certainly fills a void left by the demise of Bennigan's, and is probably a great spot for dinner and/or drinks.
