Went there for Family Lunch on a Saturday. When we first walked in I was worried that service would be poor because there appeared to be only 1 server for the whole place. But we waited maybe 5 minutes, she got us seated, and did...a great job thereafter. I ordered a cup of the stew (incredible), potato skins for the table (they were so-so). I ordered the Ruben (very good, but I added their house hot mustard which made it excellent). The Kids ordered burgers, Wife BBQ Tri Tip sandwich (great meat, but the soft bread didn’t hold up so it was a little hard to eat). Overall? That Guinness Stew is SOO GOOD! It made the day.More

We went with some friends for lunch. The food was good. The service was not great. We had hamburgers, fries and beers. It was an enjoyable lunch.

Great local pub! We asked hotel staff for a receipt for a good, local pub, and they suggested this place. The food was excellent, staff were friendly and attentive! We enjoyed it so much we came back a second time during our vacation. Highly recommend!

Matt Denny's is a very welcoming establishment with reasonable prices and great food. We went thinking we would have sandwiches, but so much more is offered. We enjoyed the special seafood dish with shrimp, mahi mahi, and salmon, served over rice in a mild cream...sauce. There is an extensive bar menu and it is an easy, safe walk from several nearby motels. The servers are pleasant and service is not rushed, allowing time to visit and enjoy the live music.More

Huge menu, I got the fish and chips and my coworker ordered the ribs. Our food wasn't bad but it was just OK, nothing special. Beers were very good. Service was really lacking, waitress never brought us water and took forever to bring the check.

Tri tip was chewy with some gristle. It’s cut so thick it wouldn’t work in a bun. Cut it up. Disappointed it was recommended by waitstaff. Service was very good though.

Live out of state, but visit this area frequently. Have eaten here many times in past years and everything was good. This visit, with a reservation by the way which was not needed, was the worst. Parked in back, walked to the entrance and was...asked by a man if "we were there for the show?" We did not know anything about a show, were only there for dinner. Service at the front desk was off, no-one there to greet us and when we did get seated, sat forever before anyone greeted us, we had to flag down the one and only server who was totally overwhelmed. Ordered drinks from the happy hour menu, only we were given the wrong drinks. Food orders were finally taken, and the food was old, very cold and not very good. After ordering another round of drinks, service seemed to improve with other employees coming around to help the one lone server we had. The big problem was the app we ordered, never received and the bill was wrong, charged us for wine not on the happy hour, although I recognized which wine I received. This server was totally out of her element with the amount of tables she had to service and not being very competent. Super disappointed and will never return!More

My wife and mother ordered the the shrimp cappelini, served with chardonnay sauce. The dish tasted like it had no salt or any other flavorings. At all. No exaggeration. It's hard to believe any chardonnay was used. Adding salt did not help. I ordered one...of my favorite dishes, veal marsala. It also lacked any flavoring. Without a doubt, the dullest veal marsala I ever had. The BBQ and the sausage appetizers were good, but nothing to write home about.More

Great happy hour served throughout the restaurant with several small plates and good prices. Friendly service. Very good quality food. Fish and chips and tacos were great.

The food quality has been consistently great over the years. If you want to support a local business, this is it. The menu has something for everyone. Moderately sized bar area if you want to follow your favorite sports yet the dining area is quiet...enough to enjoy conversation over your meal. There is even a large patio area for outdoor dining when weather permits! Parking is adequate either on Huntington drive or on the back side of the building. Reasonably close to the 210 freeway as well. My party of 3 had the Tri-tip dinner, Guinness beef stew and the mixed seafood dinner, all of us gave our meals rave reviews! Try it, you'll be coming back for more!More

I'd been once before with a friend who lived in the area. We had lunch that time and, frankly, I don't recall much about that visit. This time, I went for a beer and the sports news and bowl games on the television. Had a...good Double IPA and friendly conversation with Roberto, the bartender who was a steady worker. There's nothing "fancy" about the interior. It's an Irish bar with food (that I did not have this visit) That it's the 3rd highest rated restaurant in Arcadia doesn't say much good about the restaurant scene in that area.More

Tried to eat here during the recent Breeder's Cup. All my wife and I wanted were one drink each and a bowl of soup. After 30 minutes they still had not brought our soup so we paid for the two drinks and left.

Group of 3 ate dinner on a tuesday. Seafood pasta + soup-$21.95–mediocre fish ok only 2 shrimp, needed more sauce, the “loaded”potatoe soup was watery, too mild. The corned beef sandwich—$12.50 —dry, old sl chewy.

Too many good choices on the menu and a nice bar is what keeps this place a local favorite for several decades. The servers are all nice as well. You can't go wrong here.
