Milton in Motion: Irish Eyes

By Joe Wobeter, in Heritage Creek

Irish Eyes - Milton Memorial Park

Irish Eyes has been a local spot for Milton and the Sussex county area for years. It’s been a solid “go to” for drinks, food, and entertainment. The best part is that you won’t have to travel more than a few minutes from Heritage Creek or Wagamons West Shore to grab a bite to eat and a Dogfish Head beer.

Located in downtown Milton, Irish Eyes is across the street from the Milton Theatre, and they pride themselves on Irish dishes like shepherd’s pie, corn beef and hash, and bangers and mash. Did we mention the bangers are made with local Delaware sausages. I personally like to order their grown-up grilled cheese. And staying true to their roots, they even have an Irish Night on Monday’s, with dinner specials.

During the summer you can relax outside at their back deck that overlooks Milton Memorial Park. It’s nice to grab a bite and a pint in the sun as it overlooks the Broad kill River. Irish Eyes also has it’s share of live entertainment to add a little excitement to your night out on the town. If you’re a local it’s definitely a place where people will get to know your name, or at least Frank and I will know your name.
