Latest Blarney Stone news and reviews

The Blarney Stone is starting up its Friday fish fry after a bit of a break, and it’s not too bad. It took a little while to find the place since there’s no sign out front. A couple heads turned when we walked in, probably because we weren’t regulars.

The fish itself was in a light batter, flaky but pretty greasy. The slaw, hash and fries were all OK. The women’s bathroom featured the cryptic graffito “Lowbows are dead stone” inside the stall door.

My husband and I ate at the Blarney Stone December 31st, 2005. It was an early dinner (5 p.m.) as we were headed to a Badger Hockey game. We had a very nice dining experience. My husband ordered the stuffed pork chops and rates them a B+. I had the Sheppards Pie and rated that a B+ also. We were too full for dessert and had enough for take-home for two more meals for each of us.
