Darby Road to officially open September 26th

Ribbon cutting ceremony on September 24th

At Tuesday evening's council meeting, the council approved the special use permit for Darby Road Public House and Restaurant.

During the summer, Patch covered the naming of Darby Road and story behind the group of high school friends who's idea it was to open the location.

Proprietor Mike Brennan attended the council meeting to address any questions and show the plans of the restaurant plus its outdoor seating section.

On Monday between 5p.m. and 8p.m. Darby Road will hold an opening ceremony, opened to town officials, friends and family, featuring cocktails and hors d'ouveres, with an official ribbon cutting at 6:30 p.m.

The official open to the public date for Darby Road wil be Wednesday September 26th.

Brennan noted the hours of Darby Road will be from 11a.m. to 2p.m. for lunch, 5p.m. to 10:30p.m. for dinner and possibly until around 1 a.m. on the weekends.

The restaurant will serve Irish fare and American Classics.

Brennan was very considerate of concerns from one resident about use of the public parking lots. He noted Darby Road would do all it could to be a well-liked part of the community.

Mayor Mary DePaola, along with the rest of the council, congratulated Brennan and wished him the best of luck with the new business.

Saw the person who complained about the use of public parking lots. Public parking lots are used by customers of every business in town. Good luck, Mr. Brennan...but here's a word of advice: Don't start apologizing to every crackpot in town even before you are open.

Best of Luck! I was at the restaurant on opening night and the food was great. Very pleasant wait staff, even though the place was crowded and they were being pulled in every direction. Its a great place and I'm sure you will do well

I'm Holden MaGroin and this place is great. Who could not love a new Irish Pub in our community. The ale flows nicely and the food was very tasty. In honor of appointed-mayor Depowla's opening ribbon cutting ceremony, when I got home from Darby's I had an honorary cheese cutting ceremony of my own.
