This was a good place. I went there with two of my volleyball girls and they fit right in. a good mix of people adn good for families, probably not witht he little ones later in the evening. They have live music on certain nights as well which made things fun.

Pros: Food was quick and reasonably priced

Cons: Took a while to get our check

My wife and I go there often for a couple of beers and fish and chips on Friday evenings. The smoke gets unbearble inside so we have to leave. Sometimes we walk into the front door and turn around. My friends love the food there but again, smoke keeps them away.

This is where I met my husband! Its such a great atmosphere, wonderful bar tenders, good food and fun entertainment. A huge TV for the games and a nice little stage area for local bands to play. They also have a place upstairs for comedy.

This is the only place close to getting it right in Huntersville. Owner and mangers super friendly and the food is excellent. I personally try to go by a least once a week for nothing more than a drink and some good conversation. Try the steak, or the buffalo shrimp my 2 recommendations. Or get them both usually my choice!!!

Pros: To many to name

Cons: Should be in the heart of Birkdale Village

I have lived in the area for three weeks. My wife and I have been to the Galway three times. It is a great place to go for a drink as it is really an authentic Irish bar and reminds me of Ireland. We have had snacks before that were O.K. but last Friday night my wife ordered grouper and chips. They were great. The portion was large and it seemed to be fresh? Anyway it was much better than the greasy sausage/chicken tasting fish that is all cooked in the same oil in the U.K. and without out the newspaper print. I found the beer to be a little pricy and tend to have a couple there and move on so I can drink more cheaply (I drink Stella). I would definately recommend the Galway Hooker to anyone. It is a nice place except for the smoking. It would be nice it would be truly Irish and stop the smoking. Pros: Unique and friendly atmosphere. Food experience has been good.Cons: Smoking and beer too expensive.

We ordered Corn beef and cabbage. It was sadly disappointing, to see a 10oz pile of ?thinly-shaved? corn beef that appeared to have been ?re-heated? offered up as my meal. I tried a couple of bites, and true to my expectations, you could have done better in buying a package of ?shaved corn beef? from the lunch meat section, in a grocery store. The corn beef was far from tender and had more of a texture similar to ?chewing rubber?.

The Manager, Adam, suggested that I select another item from the menu. At this point, I did not see that happening. My wife worked her way through her meal. She ate the cabbage and left half of the corn beef on her plate. For our trouble, inconvenience, and disappointment, Adam deducted the cost of my meal from the ticket. In my opinion, that was a minimalist effort. There was no further attempt to rectify the situation. So based on the poor food quality, and the poor customer service from the manager, I have serious doubts about ever again visiting or recommending Galway Irish Pub. It was clear to me that they were more concerned about keeping my money than keeping my future business!

If you want a real ?Irish Dinner? and a great plate of corn beef, go to Ri Ra?s in downtown Charlotte!
You won?t be disappointed there!

Reviewing the comments dated April of 2005 concerning food? This pub has had a new Chef for the past 14 months. I can assure you the pub has some of the best food at Lake Norman and caters many banquets and corporate events due to the quality of food, service, and facility. The Galway Hooker Irish Pub has a very unique menu and one of the best Chef's at Lake Norman. It is a "Must To Go To" and try their updated menu and "Weekly Specialities" the pub offers. Additionally, the pub now has the rights to the "Comedy Club" at Lake Norman and features "The Comedy Zone" every Tuesday night on their second floor, a non-smoking room. This alone is well worth the trip not to mention there is no pub as unique and original in character as the Galway Hooker Irish Pub!

PROS: The Best Food and Entertainment at Lake Norman
CONS: Difficult location and can be difficult to find for anyone new to the area.

Being from the United Kingdom I'm on the look out for somewhere that I can experience that taste of Britain.

A friend had heard about this new Irish Pub and had recommended it to me, especiall as they knew it served Fish and Chips -- something that every Brit away from his homeland craves.

I went on a warm weekday evening and sat outside. The inside of the pub was teeming with people around the bar -- I presume that if all you want is a beer you may be perfectly happy there.

Service was slow - it took 15 minutes before I had my drink/food order taken. I ordered the fish and chips.

Well after about another 15 minutes my food arrived. Turns out my fish and chips was little more than what seemd to be a frozen Gorton's fish fillet and a packet of potato chips opened and dumped on the plate.

Now for anyone not familiar with true fish and chips, what the rest of the World calls chips are actually what Americans call french fries (or more specifically those nice big steak fries) - not potato chips.

This was a total fraud for anyone expecting a pseudo-authentic experience and was a total waste of money.

Like I say, if you just want a pint of Guiness, go ahead but if you want to experience any of the authenticity of Ireland/Britain, don't bother.

PROS: Good place for a drink with friends
CONS: Diabolical service, lousy food.
