Kilpatrick's: More Than Irish Food
Cuisine: American and Irish
If you haven't been in to Kilpatricks in awhile you'll notice two things right off the bat - the menu is more extensive (before it was mostly Irish, now it is 40% Irish and 60% surprise) and the prices are lower (lots under $10, everything but surf and turf is under $20.) And amazingly the portions grew larger while still offering freebies like a house salad and fresh baked bread with each meal - you won't leave hungry. Kilpatricks has always had one of the best happy hours in town, now they have a menu to match the bar.
I love restaurants and bars that are in Hotels and Kilpatrick's is at home in the Hilton Garden Inn - your bar-mate can be from just about anywhere, allowing a local to mingle with folks visiting from Singapore, Moscow, LA and beyond. And being a hotel there is sure to be someone eating alone at the bar, both male and female. The bar area of Kilpatricks really does have personality. As does the menu and the food. The menu for the bar is the same as the restaurant, but the tables and the booths (the booths are a hot commodity and go fast) have a private and intimate feel, whereas the bar is social. The beer selection is nice, the fireplace glows in the corner and the food is hearty with large portions - making a visit to Kilpatricks comfortable and familiar.
