Upon approach of 13 years in business, Irish Bred Pub owner Chad Houck reflects on his mission of small business and community which he believes is a vital role in the West Georgia area. “We truly care about our town and we are committed to seeing it thrive. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to serve and volunteer in many local organizations and boards,” said Chad.
The Pub is known for its welcoming environment that exceeds customers’ expectations for a restaurant by also hosting a great place to hangout. “You can come in, relax, and be with friends or family. We see everyone from business professionals and blue-collar workers, to families with children,” said Chad.
When asked about Chad’s favorite dish at the restaurant he responded, “I should probably say an Irish dish but I have to be honest, our burgers are the best! We have been voted the best burger in town several times through our local newspaper. We use a high-quality, never frozen, black-angus beef topped with fresh ingredients. If you haven’t had one of our burgers, you seriously must give them a try!” The Pub offers a variety of burger choices including the Carrollton Burger.
Having been in business for 13 years, Chad says there is one thing that is certain for him. He tells us, “I have seen a lot of establishments come and go. I do not take it for granted one single day. We truly do all we can to make our customers happy. We are not perfect but we surely try to be. Our staff works hard to make sure that every visit is a good experience. I would like to thank each and every one of our customers. Without them, there would be no Pub. In addition, I need to thank our devoted staff. We have some employees who have been here almost as long as me and I can’t even imagine this place without them. Our general manager, Jami Lovvorn is a prime example. She started here as a waitress and has been our General Manager since 2014. She is a key ingredient to our success and I am so grateful for her.”
In addition, The Pub has several shows in store for this year. Their St. Patrick’s Day celebration will be Saturday, March 16th and feature entertainment all day long. They will have live acoustic starting at noon outside at their quadrant under the tent.
They will also have their infamous bagpiper Bryce Delaney playing throughout the day. You can’t miss him- he’s the one in the kilt! There will be fun giveaways with everything from beads to t-shirts, koozies, pens and more. “We can’t wait to see everyone there!” said Chad.
