Sundays in My Neck of the Woods
According to their website, all of the Pub's interiors were salvaged and restored in Ireland and shipped to Portland. The entry doors were salvaged from 'Langston's Pub of Kilkenny,' and there's a pot-bellied stove from Spike Island Prison, in Cove, County Cork.
Everything was as good as it looked. The sliced apples added something different and a tasty flavor to the sandwich. The onion rings were crisp, satisfying, and way too plentiful. I ate some, hubby ate some, and I still had some to take home!
Ri Ra Irish Pub is a small national chain with locations in Arlington, Virginia; Atlanta, Georgia; Atlantic City, New Jersey; Bethesda, Maryland; Burlington, Vermont; Charlotte, North Carolina; Evansville, Indiana; Louisville, Kentucky; Portsmouth, New Hampshire; Providence, Rhode Island, and Portland, Maine.
We were pleasantly surprised at how large a selection the menu offered, how good the food was, and it was fun to have a waiter with an Irish accent wait on us. The only thing that might deter me from returning soon was the lack of parking close by. There was no handicapped parking available.
visit their website. You can click on the Pub in Portland, Maine for more information, or on the location nearest you. It's worth the time, I promise!
