    We went on a Sunday night. It took 15 minutes after we sat ourselves to get a menu. 30 minutes to get our 2 cokes we ordered. 55 minutes and our appetizer arrived and after an hour and 20 minutes or food arrived. I had the fish and chips and the fish was way overdone and should have been sent back but I feared another hour wait. French fries tasted like they had sat around all day and reheated(recycled). I asked for extra tartar sauce and my wife extra dressing, neither of which we ever got. I wanted out of this place so I got smart and asked for my check when the entree was delivered. This startegy didn't work as I still had to wait 10 minutes after we were finished for the check. Management's excuse for poor service was a big group in front of us. BS I say as the food that was delivered was garbage as well. The waitress appeared terribly disorganized. If they couldn't handle the small crowd that was there on a Sunday night, imagine if the were really busy. 2 hours we were there with a simple order - Appetizer, Fish and Chips for me, Cobb salad for the wife and 2 cokes. Far better places out there to eat with decent service

    We really enjoyed our brunch at James Joyce. Everything was really tasty. The service is a little hit or miss.

    I had the fish and chips and my wife had the reuben. The service was a little slow. Have some drinks kick back and relax. We will come back, but don't be in a hurry.

    Great local pub, yummy salads, sandwiches, great beer selection. Service is gret and atmosphere is fun for a laid back local place. Trivia on Thurs nights is always fun

    We visit James Joyce about once a week on average and would highly recommend the pub food menu. The dinner specials are fine, but the pub food seems to be a better value (in my opinion) and is what an Irish pub should be known for anyway. We usually order the chicken fingers and fries, gyro, or (turkey) reuben. The brunch, particularly the biscuits and gravy and breakfast burrito, is also REALLY yummy :)

    Good food, although it is, at times, difficult to get the attention of service personnel. Prices are in-line with expectations.

    This is really not like any pub you'll find in Ireland. Too big, too open, too clean and not smokey enough. The food is good - but not representative of any pub food. The beer and ale selection is good and the patios a great place to sit outside on a nice day. In the winter they put heaters out if you're a little brave. It does get smokey out there.

    One of our favorite places. Great fish & chips and cold beer. Nice place to enjoy Sunday brunch with a bloody mary. Service has always been pretty good. However our last visit was about 9:30 on a Friday when things had pretty much slowed down. Sat for about 10 min before getting the menus then another 10 or so for our drink order. After 10 more minutes I flagged down our waiter only to be told he wasn't our waiter any longer but he would check on things. Waited (no kidding) 10 more minutes then left after watching our "waiter" pass by us 2 more times. Sure I'll miss the food so we'll come back and hopefully the service will pick up.

    The patio at the James Joyce is a fantastic place to drink away a sunny afternoon. The menu isn't all that inventive, but the food we had was good bar fare. We'll definitely go back.

    As the name says this is an Irish pub, however don't expect to find many Irish meal on the menu. This is my only compaint. No cornbeef and cabbage or haggass. They do have sheppard's pie, which is very good. They do have things like gyro sandwiches and some veggitarian dishes. The atmosphere is great. Indoor or outdoor seating. Outdoor seating is covered but open air so if it's really hot or cold you may want to sit inside. service depends on the server. I've had great service there and I've had so so service there, but over all a great place to eat.

    I lived in Ireland for 2 years and these folks have gotten it right. Great brown bread, authentic bangers, and tasty shepherd's pie.
