Our Food Critic's Rating:
2.0 / 5 Stars
Playwright Irish Pub offers an
extremely casual atmosphere suited perfectly for swilling
a few beers with colleagues or old buddies.
I've found the service to be spotty, and the dishes,
for the most part, to be overseasoned and greasy.
In other words, the food will really hit the spot
if you're looking to soak up your liquor.
But you'll undoubtedly feel horrible the
Playwright likes its music loud. The patrons, by and
large, are young, so I'm sure they never complain about the decibel level.
Looks to be about a twentysomething set, on average.
Sports are always being shown on the 22 flat-screen TVs, and Playwright heavily
promotes UFC nights with posters and drink specials.
With so many deals like $10 pitchers and 5-for-$15 beer buckets,
it doesn't require much money to catch a buzz at Playwright.
And, boy, do they pack in big crowds to watch the cage fighting.
Seems there are two choices if you're looking for a traditional bar at Gulfstream.
Playwright, which is located on the second level,
attracts more of a blue-collar, raucous crowd, and Yard House, down
on the ground floor, which is clearly more
refined and laid-back.
