Best Irish 

The Harp

Dublin or Detroit Avenue? It's hard to tell when you're at the Harp, especially at one of the Traditional Irish Sessions. That's where live musicians entertain with fiddles, bagpipes and guitars just about every week. The Harp is equally loved for music, its menu and scenery. The patio overlooks the shore of Lake Erie, which is the perfect setup for a glass of the bar's freshly pulled Guinness. The fish and chips are favorites and the corned beef also keeps visitors raving. Gayot named The Harp one of the top 10 Irish pubs in the country a year ago, just before Scene readers crowned it king of Cleveland. Even Fox News gave The Harp consecutive top-10-in-America nods, and that's saying something considering the folks there seem to like nothing.
