While Irishmen tell tales of the free-flowing rivers of Guinness in County Cork, forlorn Americans are forced to harvest the creamy nectar from sinister barmen and unpredictable delivery toucans. Today’s Groupon makes Irish fare slightly more accessible. For $12, you get $25 worth of Guinness, ribs, and more at O’Tooles Irish American Grill and Bar. Your Groupon is redeemable at the Waterford location only.
O’Tooles offers a massive menu of Irish-inspired American fare, sure to please that dashing ex-Emerald Islander in your jazz aerobics class. The juicy beef tenderloin bites ($9.99) are char-grilled to order and served with the house houseradish sauce to properly lubricate the palate for delicious beers and bite to come. Appetized seafarers can dive into the battered and fried calamari ($7.99), with two dipping sauces and lemon wedges. Savory sandwiches and burgers, such as the corned-beef and kraut-or-slaw-stuffed Celtic reuben ($8.49) or the customizable burger ($6.99) with more than 20 available toppings ($0.29¬–$1.29), satisfy diners' desires to hold hands with their meals in public for once. Hearty entrees offer an eclectic selection of plated proteins. Meat enthusiasts should opt for the award-winning ribs ($13.99–$22.99), smothered in tangy barbecue sauce, while pescevores needn't go fishing with a bounty of flavor in each forkful of the lobster mac 'n' cheese ($12.99) or Guinness-battered fish and chips ($9.99–$13.99). Wings, salads, soups, and pizza round out the menu, ensuring each member of your book club or fight club will emerge from the dinner satisfied and fully fed.
Perched on the shores of Cass Lake, the warm and welcoming grill and bar houses 21 plasma TVs as well as a full game room, complete with pool tables and arcade games, making it an ideal location for your next 21st birthday party or Masterpiece Theatre viewing session. The expansive lakeside patio offers an ideal locale for a breezy date with a dashing dry-cleaner or an intimate night of fresh-air-infused dining.
Although most of O'Tooles' patrons have their mouths full of fish and chips, Yahoo! Locals give the cozy eatery 3.5 stars:
