Last weekend the girlfriend and I decided to go out for our usual Saturday night dinner, and we had decided to go to the Olive Garden near Hamilton Town Center because it was both close and free (the only reason to actually go to Olive Garden) since we had gift cards. Apparently people in the Noblesville/Fishers area really dig Olive Garden because there was a 40 minute wait and it was only 6 pm. As a consequence we abandoned this idea and headed across the street for a meal at Mo's Irish Pub.
Aside from having a similar name to other restaurants Mo's isn't a bad place at all. It tries to have a nice Irish pub look to it with a dimmer atmosphere and a lot of dark hardwoods used on the interior. However, I couldn't help but think the place seems a little confused. Part of the interior design says pub, but then you see all the neon signs and 40 billion televisions and I think sports bar. The menu is similarly fashioned. You see some traditional fare on there like fish and chips, shepherd's pie and corned beef and cabbage. The problem is the menu also has chicken tenders and ugh...quesadillas. Now I realize they are a chain, and they're trying to appeal to everyone. It just seemed strange to me. I guess if you want a more authentic experience go somewhere else.
Addendum: I didn't speak much about the service because it wasn't really noteworthy. Again keeping with the theme of this place not especially bad or good. The manager did seem present and involved which is nice, and he came by to check on each table as well which was a nice touch.
The idea for this blog is to blog about everything I think about food and food culture. I'll tell you what I like to eat, where I like to eat it and if I thought it was good or if I thought it was crap. My thoughts about food could go anywhere. Hey if you don't like it go blog at methodicaldudereallythinksalotaboutthefoodhesgoingtoeat.blogspot.com
