We really enjoyed the casual atmosphere and the food was outstanding. The stews are the best I have tasted. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Can't wait to take our family and friends there.

The food here is really good. The servers are nice, but they're busy. James Joyce has a very nice authentic Irish vibe. The location is also great.

We went with our kids because they had the Orioles/Red Sox game on. It was one of the best meals we had in Baltimore. The staff was great, very attentive. My husband had the corned beef/cabbage dinner. He said it was the best he has ever had. (That is saying a lot!!) Great Salad for me and fish and chips for the kids!! Highly recommend this very relaxing and friendly restaurant.

My Husband and I ventured down to Harbor East this weekend to check out the new Landmark Movie Theater (we saw Get Smart- very funny) and get a bite to eat at James Joyce Irish Pub and Restaurant. The weather was perfect and it was a great day.

So before the movie we walked around Harbor East and went to eat at James Joyce Pub. As we entered the pub I was intrigued to find out that was designed and built in Ireland and then shipped over here to Baltimore in the fall of 2002. The pub is named after the famous Irish poet and author (Ulysses and Finnegans Wake). They have live music about 5 days a week form 9 pm ?? 1:30 am.

The inside of the restaurant has a nice Irish atmosphere with a family setting. The section we sat in had high tables with high benches and chairs. The walls are adorned in Irish artwork and pieces.

We started with a cup of the Irish Potato Soup (Cup $3.25) - pureed potatoes, onions and leeks cooked in a chicken stock. The flavor was perfect as was the texture. I didn??t find any component of the soup to be over powering- the marriage of ingredients was perfect.
For my entre I had the Beer Battered Sausage and "Chips" ($11.95)- traditional Irish Bangers lightly battered then deep fried and served with french fries and baked beans. I was a bit leery of the fact that the sausage was beer batter and fried but once I bite into it all my reservations dissolved away. It was wonderful. The sausage was sweet and the batter gave a perfect crunch to it that added to the taste. The fries were perfectly cooked. The baked beans were very sweet and runny (I prefer my baked beans not as sweet and thicker) but the taste was average. They served it with malt vinegar and ketchup. Now I add vinegar to my ??Fish and Chips? so I was unsure as to add it to the sausage or not. I tired a few bites with it and it was good.

My Husband had the Beef and Guinness Stew ($13.95) - pieces of beef braised in Guinness stock with diced carrots, onion, leek and celery and was served over traditional champ potatoes. The pieces of meat were tender and very plentiful. The consistency of the stew was perfect and not overly thick or runny. The serving was pretty big but he finished every last drop.

They are participating in Baltimore Summer Restaurant Week 2008 and have their menu already posted on their website.

I love the James Joyce! It's a great neighborhood bar. It feels like you're right in Ireland. They have really good pot pies too.

Pros: Not snooty, great beer

.

Everything here seems to have been shipped from Ireland, including the staff and the furnishings. The staff were incredibly friendly and chatty - the welcoming handshake and actually remebering my name when visiting for lunch on successive days made my business trip that much more bearable. The beer is very good with a braod enough selection to satisfy most, although a little overpriced, and the food is good solid traditional fayre. I would recommend visiting here.
