Visiting an Irish pub is like stepping into James Joyce's Ulysses without dealing with molemen, teenage detectives, and heavy-handed NASCAR references. Read the CliffsNotes with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of dine-in pub fare and drinks at The Life of Reilly Irish Pub & Restaurant in Butchers Hill.
The Life of Reilly’s chef, Dale Fields Jr., dishes up an eclectic menu of traditional pub grub, classic Irish cuisine, and local favorites to appease appetites of all shapes, sizes, and literary tastes. Keep fingers ungreasy and ready to grab a whiskey glass with bread-meat-bread combos such as the fried fish sandwich featuring beer-battered cod topped with lettuce, tomato, and fresh lemon aioli ($8.99). Guinness stew makes Irish eyes grin gleefully over the braised beef and root vegetables slowly simmered in a Guinness-based brown gravy and served with traditional soda bread and classic irish champ ($8.99 for a half order; $14.99 for a whole order). Ten beers on tap and an extensive Irish whiskey selection quench gullets with a belly-warming sensation usually found only by leaning against a Celtic space heater.
Exposed brick walls and a long bar make The Life of Reilly an entertaining space for fostering pint grabs and good cheer. Bring coworkers to watch matches from across the pond, such as the English Premier League and international rugby, and take notes on how to survive spontaneous intra-office scrums. With walls bedecked with black-and-white photography and framed jerseys, the atmosphere is ideal for casual dining and deliberate drinking alike.
