Rosie McCann’s Irish Pub wins high marks for hefty portions and inventive fare
If you’re Irish, come into the parlour, there’s a welcome there for you—or so the song goes. And there’s certainly a welcome there for you at Rosie McCann’s. The popular Irish pub in the heart of Santa Cruz even has a sign over the door as you enter—Cead Mile Failte—derived from Celtic and meaning “A Hundred Thousand Welcomes.”
Guinness has always been a favorite of mine, and, of course, there’s no shortage of it at Rosie’s. The pub’s range of beer covers every taste, including a “rotating tap” from a guest brewery.” Danna Meek, who runs the bar and has been at Rosie’s for 15 years, is there to help customers who may not know which ale or glass of wine to choose. Rosie’s has an extensive range of specialty drinks and Meek can certainly shake up a fabulous cocktail.
