The patio now boasts not only a great view of the water, but a large stage to host larger acts. The indoor stage was expanded to accommodate Five Alarm Funk. Customers have had the pleasure of seeing Current Swell, The Sheepdogs, Elliott Brood and Red Wanting Blue. “We’ve also had the Sadies, Tom Wilson, Shred Kelly and the Strumbellas play here. Some really familiar faces are Pat Robitaille and Daylight for Deadeyes,” says co-owner Angela Smolders. If you’ve heard a Canadian band on CBC Radio, they have probably played at Paddy Flaherty’s.
From ship christenings to St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, the staff are kept very busy, serving up delicious food and anyone of their 25 beers on tap. “We have up to 55 staff working during peak summer months. Some staff have been with us for a long time, including our chef, Lynne Cotton, who started in 2001,” says Smolders. “Everything is made fresh daily. We have a talented group in the kitchen. They have been together a long time, and Lynne is amazing,” adds partner Scott Dargie. The menu includes a variety of Irish-inspired and North American classics. You can join them for lunch, dinner, and late-night snacks.
