More than a pub, Limericks Tavern serves Irish, American comfort food

By Adriana Maestas

Patrick O’Neill, who manages Limericks in Alhambra, puts the final touches on a drink.

There is nothing like Limericks in Alhambra, a pub that is welcoming of families and folks who want to eat a good meal and have access to American and European craft beers. Limericks is a modernized take on an Irish pub where customers can find a wide selection of beers and cocktails, in addition to an entertaining environment with plenty of televisions for guests to watch sports and other events. This pub stands out in a neighborhood of Asian dining establishments.

“Ideally, we want people to feel comfortable and welcome, whether they are watching football or doing brunch. We want this place to be the first option,” said Patrick O’Neill, the manager of Limericks in Alhambra.“They will get high quality food and a comfortable atmosphere.”

The menu is impressive with a variety of American staples like mac and cheese and sliders to the more typically Irish dishes like corned beef and cabbage and shepherd’s pie. The focus is on quality and comfort, where you can enjoy a tasty meal with your beer and relax. Mr. O’Neill said that the restaurant is focusing on using non-GMO, freshly sustained food, so some of the menu items will change based on the availability of ingredients.

If you are a beer connoisseur, there are 60 different beers on draft, including some local brews like Ohana and Angel City that get rotated in the bar. If you want shots or cocktails, Limericks has you covered.

Families and children are welcome at Limericks, especially during the lunch and dinner hours. As the evening progresses, the environment does become more pub-like. But pub staff aims for comfort and making customers feel like they are visiting a home away from home. The environment is casual and unpretentious with green accents and dark wood.

Limericks is located at 300 W. Main St., Suite 110. The pub is open from noon to midnight Sunday through Thursday and from noon to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
