I've never visited planet Mercury, but after going to a wedding reception at the Banshee this past June, I know the first planet from the sun can't be any more hot than this bar. It was a 95 degree day, and only half of the fans in this bar were working...I was sweating like the tax man was knocking at my door. The staff was flippant at best, rude at worst. Don't bother ripping heavy, it won't put any bore alcohol in your mixed drink.

I am a Scranton native and have been steering people away from here for years. I went there tonight after 4 or 5 years and was not disappointed. The atmosphere is wonderful. The music is top notch. The customer service is poor. The food is mediocre at best. I have had shepard's pie and beef stew that were so salty, I have refused to ever order them again. The only food I could tolerate was taken off the menu. The cheese plate appetizer is from the grocery story -- cubed american, cubed chedder, and cubed pepper jack with crackers. This Irish Bar ran out of food on St. Patrick's Day!!!!!. The manager is the hostess. She forgot to seat us, then lied to me when I questioned her. Service is poor St. Patrick's Day or Sunday afternoon when you are the only couple in the place. It's difficult to get a drink with the bar tender's standing around gabbing. If you get a drink though, you have an odds on chance they will forget to charge you. I recommend this place for the music, but suggest you eat before you go. When you need a drink, walk next door to Mert's and bring your drink back to the Banshee.

This place has pretty good food. If you're a vegetarian, good luck though. It's decorated like alot of other typical Irish pubs in the area. Live music on Friday nights but prepare to pay a cover charge.

The Banshee is my favorite bar/pub in all of Scranton. Decorated like a classic Irish pub, The Banshee provides everything from great food to great entertainment.

Portions are healthy servings - they don't skimp on anything here. Friendly waitstaff and bartenders only add to the warm, cozy feeling of this great little pub!

Food and Drinks all reasonably priced make this pub affordable for all.

Good pub grub and beer. Nice feel to it. Not crowded at all. Has an ancient feel. Not too much variety in the menu. Worth a visit or two. Sandwiches are tasty and cheap

The Banshee is an old-fashioned Irish pub with good food and drink. Many college students hang out here, but locals also frequent it. It's the best place to be on St. Patrick's Day. Great food and live music!
