New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
Nestled along Galt Ocean Drive just east of A1A, Barrett's Sly Fox isn't easy to find. But if you happen to drive by, the Irish pub is hard to miss. A large, green imposing building that stands alone, behind the strip malls on Ocean Drive, Barrett's first opened in 1970 as Danny's Sly Fox. It changed owners and then its name but continued to cater to the same locals who populate condo row on Galt Ocean Mile. Its décor offers the standard knickknacks and warm wood finish that make Ireland feel like home no matter where in the world you are. TVs continuously broadcast sports, and lots of seating is available, from the bar that runs along the back wall to all the booths inside and out. A stage takes up a small space on the left, perfect for any singer/songwriter. The only drawback: no pool table or darts. But that's the price you pay for comfortable sitting areas.
Tips from foursquare
Great place to watch out of town MLB games. Bartender was happy to put Sox game on for me. They have about a dozen screens and most pro sports packages.
I've been disappointed before with their kitchen closing before 9pm. But at 8pm on St. Patty's Day with 40+ people at the bar? It's a shame. Excellent food but kitchen always seems to be closed!
Their authentic fare is fantastic! Fish and chips are amazing.
If you can manage to get in their before the kitchen closes, you'll have great food and good service.
The food, the drink, and live music is a great combination!
