    just saw on some other thread that Danny Boy's burger kicks butt. but i haven't had it, that's just second-hand info.

      Slim restaurant pickings in the immediate area. I've been to Danny Boy's a few times; the last time over a year ago. The pub grub is just OK but the more refined(?) menu items were better than expected. I liked the hanger steak and beer batter shimp. I also had good braised shortribs once.
      As far as I know John's bar is just a neighborhood bar. I've never heard that they serve food.

          That about sums it up. Middle Village is not a great spot for good Grub.

            Woodhaven House is a decent Irish Pub.

              John's is just a neighborhood bar. You should check out Danny Boy's the food is excellent.
