The warm and inviting atmosphere of Dwyer’s Irish Pub is everything you would want a pub to have: good drinks, good food, live music and sports on TV. And of course, friendly conversation with whomever you happen to be standing by.
Happy hour features not only great food and drink specials, but live music from local bands on Friday nights. During sports seasons Dwyer’s shows Bills and Sabres games.
Beer is big at Dwyer’s with everything from domestic to craft served on tap and bottle. Premium bottles include Irish favorites like Guinness Extra Dry Stout, Murphy’s Irish Red Ale and Smithwick’s as well as England’s Samuel Smith selections.
The menu is best described as pub grub with no real Irish dishes, however, perfect drinking items like Celtic Chips (sliced, deep fried potatoes), Bunratty BBQ, Dubliner or Guinness burgers made with Irish back bacon work. There’s also a Shepherd’s Pie made with tater tots.
Dwyer’s also is known for its chicken wings, as noted in The Buffalo News “10 worthy heirs to the chicken wing throne” story in 2014.
With many choices, patrons can revel in anything from the standard Buffalo wing and fruity barbecue sauces (raspberry and strawberry) to more complex versions like those with an Asian flair such as Wasabi Plum, General Tso and Spicy Sesame.
