Overall - March 2010:
Well, we decided to give the Harp another go as the first stop on the BHON NOTL pub crawl 2010 to see if the wings had returned to their former glory. Unfortunately we never found out as they didn’t have any. We had a couple $7.50 pints and split. This was shaping up to be an EPIC FAIL of a night.
Overall - Apr 2008:
First stop on NOTL pub crawl 2008 brought us back to the Irish Harp pub once again. It had been a year since our first visit and we wondered whether the wings would live up to the standards set by our initial outing.
We started with a couple pitchers of their new house-brewed Irish Harp ale, which was quite good. Sadly though, the wings were a little dissappointing. Originally some of the hottest wings we’ve experienced, this time they were much smaller, with a generic sauce that was not nearly as hot, or unique as we were expecting. There were also quite a few frankenwings and schrapnel bits in each batch, and at $12 a pound one would expect more than just ’average’ wings.
Still a nice classy irish pub environment worthy of a visit for a pint, but sadly, the wings didn’t really cut it this time around.
Overall - May 2007: HOT!
Woah what a surprise! The wings were not your run of the mill wings, they were smokin’! These wings got your attention in a hurry.
This was our first stop on the BHON NOTL pub crawl of 2007. Admittedly, we didn’t have high expectations of finding decent or cheap wings anywhere in ye Olde town of Niagara. We were pleasantly suprised by the Irish Harp Pub!
Classy irish pub atmosphere - check.
