Alcohol not included and I didn't read that, so wound up wasting a good portion of the groupon that went unused, and alcohol bill was separate. Just keep that in mind. Otherwise, food is great. Enjoy

If you order the combo platter of appetizers make sure you have at least 3 or 4 to eat them. For 2 people the combo platter appetizer is a meal in itself

Check out menu online first. There are so many things that look good. It takes extra time to decide what to order. Or just ask your waiter what his favorite is to eat there.

Large portions and a fun place to go. We went on Irish Music Night. The music was great but a little loud. Stay towards the back if you want to have a conversation.

From Our Editors

When Eugene Gillespie left Ireland to visit his brother in New York in 1972, he didn't know that he would be inspired to stay. The Irish economy was down, so Eugene decided to pursue the American dream by moving to the Mid-Atlantic region. He didn't leave Ireland entirely behind him though, and Eugene proceeded to spend the next several decades opening traditional Irish pubs and restaurants throughout New York and New Jersey.

With two locations, Blackthorn Restaurant & Irish Pub demonstrates a commitment to the flavors of Ireland. The menus feature familiar comfort foods—certified Angus burgers and thin-crust pizzas—including a number of Irish favorites, such as beer-battered fish and chips and stews filled with Guinness-braised beef. To achieve an even more authentic taste, the chefs occasionally import ingredients such as Irish cheddar cheese, Irish sausages, and Irish rainbows.

The menu's iconic dishes contribute to the pubs' cozy, inviting ambiance almost as much as accents such as the stone fireplaces or the bar made of imported red mahogany. Spirits remain lively and the mood stays festive thanks to the live entertainment hosted throughout the week. Live bands perform contemporary hits as well as traditional Irish songs.
