Irish pubs are no different than regular pubs, aside from the neon potatoes lighting their walls and the mysterious weekend DJ named Ulysses. Embark on a taste odyssey with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare at McSwiggan’s Irish Pub located in The Colony.
Inside McSwiggan’s jovial dining enclave, grill masters meld the warmth of an Irish pub with a menu of New England–influenced fare. Nosh plates of lightly breaded and fried pickles ($5.99), dunking them into accompanying cups of ranch dressing or, for culinary exhibitionists, hot urns of Clam Chowdah’ ($1.99 cup for lunch, $2.99 cup for dinner). Layers of New England–style lobster salad ($12.99) claw their way to the tops of toasted buns, while slabs of Icelandic haddock filet ($9.99) shimmy through seas of beer batter before flopping exhaustedly into waiting maws.
Give stomachs a morning workout at any hour of the day with a traditional Irish breakfast ($8.99) chock full of protein-rich eggs, sausage, bacon, and solid-gold home fries accepted as legal tender in many states. On the weekends, sidle up to the bar with scores of sports fans to swig from the menu of beers, which, although not included in this Groupon, provide a range of bottle sizes for fork-and-spoon drum solos.
