Returning To Killarney House: Lunch On The Patio

| September 8, 2012

As we drove up to the Killarney House, we couldn’t help but notice the beautifully landscaped property.  There were very healthy huge hanging baskets and colorful flowering crepe myrtles.  This was not our first visit to this restaurant, but it had been at least a year since we were last there.

Because it was such a lovely day, we asked to be seated on the covered patio, which was large and spanned the entire length of the front façade of the building.  More hanging plants framed the patio which added to the ambiance. The only negative aspect of our seating location was the constant sounds of adjacent traffic, including emergency vehicles whizzing by on Route 214.

Even though it was in the mid 80’s and there was not much humidity, it was nice to have the ceiling fans providing a pleasant breeze.  We noticed that the menu had changed since the last time we were there. There were old favorites like the Chieftain Salad and the Irish Reuben.  A separate flyer advertised specials of the day, and the menu contained regular lunch specials as well, so there were plenty of choices.

Paul zeroed in on a Reuben, but had to decide between the corned beef or the turkey variety.  He finally went with the Cork Reuben, which is made with turkey.  He was very pleased with the thinly sliced turkey, melted Swiss cheese, and cole slaw on toasted rye bread.

I ordered a grilled portobello sandwich, consisting of a nicely grilled mushroom topped with sliced tomatoes and melted provolone cheese on a brioche roll.  My sandwich arrived at the perfect temperature.

Both sandwiches came with Irish chips, which turned out to be thick steak fries.  For some reason, I assumed they were actual potato chips, or I would have requested a veggie or small salad substitute, since I don’t care for potatoes.

The service was excellent.  Our server was pleasant, friendly and attentive.  She generously refilled our ice teas and chatted that we shouldn’t wait a year before coming back.  We won’t!

They advertise a Sunday Brunch and have gluten-free items on the menu.
