The menu is pretty simple at Meehan's. You have your classic Irish fare, plus sandwiches, salads, and a sizeable selection of appetizers. Try the spinach artichoke dip, the garlic herb hummus, or the house cut fries to start.
You can never go wrong with a good plate of Fish N'Chips. The Guinness battered pacific cod, served with French fries and coleslaw, iwi's made perfectly, although the serving size was a tad small for the price.
Lots of choices for seafood lovers here including an Oyster Bar, Irish Clam Chowder, Smoky Fish Dip, Grilled Salmon, and a Fried Shrimp Platter.
Vegetarians will want to try out the Truffle Mac and Cheese, featuring a 3 cheese sauce and black truffle. If you are looking for a healthy side to go with your meal, the chopped salad is really good and loaded with healthy veggies.
On a side note, the menu is marked as to gluten-free selections. On a side note, the restaurant works with local farmers and many of the ingredients are locally sourced. As this is quite rare for a pub, definitely a nice little bonus!
Additionally, there are lots of local beers on tap and great Happy Hour deals!
Service was just alright. If there was one negative to the visit, it would be the slow, inattentive service. On weekend nights, the staff seems to cater more to the bar crowd vs. the restaurant crowd. On a side note, the artichoke dip had a French fry in it, so they could definitely use a bit more caution in the kitchen.
The decor at Meehan's is dark and woodsy. It's definitely got that traditional Irish pub feeling. Live music and special events are often on the lineup, so check the website to stay updated.
