Success! Thanks for posting your review of James Joyce Irish Pub. You’ve done the world some good today.

Nice Front Porch

A very nice place to have a drink and be seen in Durham. Trends are set here and changed again. If you go next door you may not be able to get a drink at the Fed, where you may find the atmosphere dark, and in a way that may blow your mind. If you see Mr. Bland at the Joyce be sure to pass him a smile, yet the last time I visited he appeared to be showing as invisible. Don't let the ever changing crowd get you do... view more

Good food, good service

Compares well to pubs in Ireland. We had dinner (Irish stew, fish & chips) and found it surprisingly good for a pub. Our waitress was pleasant, prompt and helpful. Now that bars are nonsmoking we'll be eating and drinking there regularly.

Bad Service

I don't recommend this place for dinner. Our service was very slow! My date mis-calculated the tip (he meant to put more) and the waitress came back and asked for more money!! She was very rude and not a very good waitress to begin with. If you are going to the James Joyce, eat dinner beforehand!

The Best!

This is such a great pub. The food is great, the service is great, the crowd is great, the atmosphere is great. Great live music on selected nights. Indoor/outdoor. Nothing negative whatsoever to say about the James Joyce!
