The voting for our "Readers' Choice" awards for officially ended at noon today (Friday, March 16), so it's safe to post this "You Rate the Restaurant" of our hometown Irish pub, Claddagh.
Claddah Irish Pub is one of the hubs of the Geneva Commons shopping center, a big, convivial, family-friendly place where you can go for a brew, Irish fare and Irish entertainment.
Claddagh's is very impressive, and it seems like it must be THE place to go in Geneva for the full-volume celebration of our favorite Irish Saint.
About this time of year, I get a hankerin' for corned beef and cabbage, and if there's a better Geneva place to go than Claddagh for that particular meal, I'm not aware of it.
Claddagh has a long list of draft and bottle selections, wine and seasonal signature drinks to go along with a menu full of Irish treats.
