Johnny Foley's Irish House
Although it looks like an authentic Dublin pub from the outside, you do not have to be Irish yourself to enjoy this place. In fact, it might help if you are not. The cultural flavor of Johnny's is definitely mixed with a heady brew of Irish beers, Scotch malts, Italian food, and American hamburgers. An equally mixed crowd is found enjoying it all as it is served up by a boisterous and efficient wait staff.
I went to Foley's on a Saturday night in January. Lovely place that is surprisingly large and quaintly decorated.
Food was fantastic. I had the Fish and Chips, but "sampled" several other peoples' plates. We also had several appetizers. (the Salmon on Potato pancake is a MUST HAVE). Enjoyed everything.
Service was the best I've had in the Bay Area. Lovely Irish girls were very attentive.
Music was good. Chinese Beatle tribute band really rocked.
The crowd was quite mixed. Young hipsters all the way up to the white-haired.
Will be going back for lunch soon!
Another visit to Foley's and its something one immerses oneself in-especially in the evening when the noise level is about that of an aircraft carrier launching and receiving 'planes! Still, the staff is delightful-if a bit slow on occasion-and the beer and food is first rate. Their' half and half' is first rate, as are the buttermilk onion strings. Bring earplugs, a friend and enjoy. Early luncheons in the SW corner are delightful and quiet!
