Stan’s Main Street (Frisco)

Stan's Main Street - Frisco, TX

A longtime favorite in Frisco, the Rover Grill offers an authentic Irish menu and a great selection of imported beers, Irish whiskey, and designer cocktails. This year they will be featuring a bagpiper, music, and other specials. Try the Rover Nuts – a delicious concoction of bacon, onions, jalapeños & pepperjack cheese mixed and rolled in panko bread crumbs. Yum!

Any real beer knurd knows that the Flying Saucer in Addison is the place to get a great selection of some great brews. And this year they will be celebrating with a tap takeover from Green Flash Brewing Co., and will unveil five new Green Flash brews, and offer $3 Irish beers all day and food specials. And be sure to check out their Ring of Honor – who knows … you could be in it someday!

Okay … so not necessarily an Irish establishment, but they have a great selection of beer on tap, great ambiance, and they pour a mean pint of Guinness. So if you live in the far north Frisco area, swing on by and check out their menu, and order up your favorite pint of Irish beer.

At the Trinity Hall Irish Pub, they plan on starting early and run all day with extra seating on the patios, extra live music inside and out and visits from the random Pipers & Singers throughout the day! On stage they’ll have Trad Irish to start, then a Singalong for all and then more Celtic & Irish! So if you’re in the area, make plans to stop in and hoist a pint or two.

One of our personal favorites, The Dubliner is owned & operated by a native of Dublin, and is a local favorite watering hole of the east Dallas community.  The Dubliner offers an authentic Irish pub experience, and is especially fun during their St. Patricks Day celebrations. It can get very crowded, so show up early, and pace yourself!

No respectible St. Paddy’s Day crawl would be complete without a visit to The Idle Rich Pub in Uptown. Always a fun place to be on St. Patrick’s Day, with live music, Irish food, beer and whiskey. This years event features Celtic rock from the Killdeers starting at 7PM. Get all the details  on their website, then stop over for a truly Irish good time.

The Blackfriar Pub (Uptown/Dallas)

If heavily carved prayer panels and ceiling plus a gothic back bar are more your style, then you need to check out The Blackfriar Pub on McKinney Ave. in Uptown. The woodwork came originally from a castle in England owned by Peter Townshend of The Who, and was once part of the VIP room of the former Hard Rock Cafe. So stop by and raise in pint in their beer garden.

This lively north Dallas hangout for all things Irish offers 120 different beers from around the world, so you’re sure to find something you’d enjoy. Check out their St. Paddy’s Day specials on their website, and try a plate of corned beef and cabbage or Shepard’s Pie and have a great time being green!

      So sorry! We didn’t know Stan’s had Irish heritage, but we’ll be sure to add it to next year’s list. Loved going to the original Stan’s on lower Greenville Ave. many, many moons ago. We’ll have to stop in and check out Stan’s Main street again soon. Sláinte!
