Jack Quinn Irish Ale House
This popular pub gives Colorado Springs a hint of Ireland. The interior is very "United-States-version-of-an-Irish-pub" typical and includes the expected dark wooden booths and brick walls. Nevertheless, it is appealing and offers a nice change from the usual chain look. Shepherd's Pie, Tipperary Pork, and corned beef and cabbage are dinner menu highlights, as is the traditional Ploughman's Lunch (Irish cheddar on brown bread) on the day menu. Guinness is served on tap, so yes black and tans are available. Cigar smoking is encouraged.
This is a great place to go if you'd like to have great food, music, and fun! Thursday nights are sing along pub songs. The steamed mussels are the greatest and after a pint you'll find yourself wanting to peek under the kilts of some daring men (if you're a female that is :). This pub is not for the faint of heart. If you want a quiet dinner; go to a restaurant. THIS IS AN IRISH PUB! Expect a crowd of jolly, singing Irishmen, and expect to have the time of your life.
Pros: Good location w/i walking distance of hotels in the area. The bartenders are quite friendy. They offer a luch type buffet of chilli dogs, tacos, etc., that changes daily, during the happy hours. The food is pretty good, depending on what is ordered. The patio is nice for outdoor enjoyment. The back room has decent pool tables that are still under a $1 per game, at .75c. Not very many patrons, even on weekends, so pretty roomy.
Cons: Drinks are too expensive, and they lack selection on beers. Service is slow and sometimes unaccomodating, due to socializing w/ patrons too much & being understaffed. BLTs lack bacon, and mayo should be spread on bread, not given on the side. Only a couple of pool sticks that aren't broken and worn. The back room, where the pool tables are, is too hot with only 1 working fan, the other fans are broke, and no air-conditioning; it is close to the kitchen so it gets really heated up in the room! The patio chairs are worn, ripped, and dirty. Kinda of dirty throughout the bar and in the bathrooms. Ash trays on patio are always full and caked with debris. Music is too loud, especially when there isn't anyone there, but was able to ask for it to be turned way down.
Cheers! I have been to a few pubs in Ireland, and this place is as close as it gets outside the Emerald Isle. The inside is very typicaly Irish and the dark wooden booths and brick walls are authentic offering a nice change from the usual club scene. Along with a full menu, they serve really good Pub Grub. They have Guinness on tap, so a black and tan is not far away. Don't miss it, CEAD MILE FAILTE!
I have to change my review for this pub. It's locally owed and operated however my last visit to this pub wasnt very pleasent. We, dancers, were invited to come dance with the band that was playing. Another schools dancers that have been asked to not come, showed up and asked the mgr if they could dance. She told them sure and to shove us off the floor. First this is a family restaraunt, second she was talking to teen and thats not a very responsible response, third they've been asked to not come, fourth I was standing 2 feet away from her when she said this to them. Needless to say, I probably wont be back because of the total lack of appropriate adult behavor on the part of the mgr.
We stumbled upon this place by accident. We were pleasantly surprised. The decor is so quaint, you'd think you were across the Pond. Great atmosphere, delicious food (try the fish cakes) and an awesome selection of beers on tap. The place was packed. So we sat at the bar. The bartenders were friendly, attentive and fun. We enjoyed ourselves immensely.
Side note: one of the best parts of the evening was that fact that there is no smoking in the bar so we didn't reek of smoke when we left the place.
This is the only place in the Colorado Springs area that is even close to an authentic british pub! The selection of beer is incredible, you can find drinks that nobody else in this town has even heard of, and the food is so much like back in the UK that I actually felt like I was back over there!
Anyone that has been to a real British pub would love the experience of Jack Quinn's. I know I was sold the first time I walked in the door many years ago, and always plan on returning for many years to come!
Great bar. Food was a little better a year or two ago as they have down sized the portions. (fish and chips as an example) But the people are friendly, the environment great. Stop in when Clancy is singing.....it's a hoot.
Went there for company function. Because of the wood in the bar upstairs the noise level was unbearable. The service was good. The food was good.
I am not sure how it is on regular nights or downstairs.
