Although it can get extremely full and reservations have to be made well in advance, Kennedy's is one of the best pubs in town. Its ample variety of food includes pub favorites such as Fish and Chips, Burgers and various baskets of fried goodies. To quench one's thirst there is a variety of beers (Guinness, Kilkenny, Augustiner, etc), ciders (Bulmers, Strongbow) and assorted liquors. The staff is very friendly and the environment is always good. A great venue for watching a football game, live music or, if you like singing, to join the karaoke night.
Definitely worth checking out if you want to have a fun night out.
I've now tried the burgers, and they are horrible. I'm not even convinced they were made of beef. There seems like there had to be some other meat or meat products, and probably some sort of grain or meal mixed in.
In other words, I will NEVER, EVER, EVER AGAIN EAT A BURGER HERE.
That said, I love the karaoke and the whiskey options here. The staff are friendly, if slightly busy, and this place really satisfies that need for haunting a basement bar for a couple hours with your friends Guinness and Jameson.
This place fills up every night of the week, so either come early, or make a reservation.
Kennedy's is always a fun place to hit up on a night out - although it gets really packed really quickly so you pretty much have to be an early bird if you want a table!
Aside from the atmosphere and the drinks, the food is also pretty tasty and the service has been great whenever I've been there. The burgers and sausages are definitely worth a try but I would stay away from ordering the fish and chips - it's no where near as delicious as proper British cod and chips!
I think it's worth checking out if only to con your friends into trying the delightful and horrifying experience that is Snakebite!!
Althouhg, if you're looking for a quiet meal in a nice pub atmosphere I would recommend you go early and completely avoid going on a Karaoke night!!
Kennedy's ist wirklich ein cooler Laden. Wir hatten mit unserer 14 Mann starken Gruppe echt Spaß dort.
Ich habe einen sehr guten Burger bekommen, die Pommes schienen selbst gemacht (hat wirklich nach Kartoffel geschmeckt) und die Bedienung war echt auf Zack.
Durch die lockere Atmosphäre und das durchweg über alle Altersgruppen gemischte Publikum fühlt sich hier jeder willkommen. Wirklich sehr zu empfehlen.
We were searching out a place in Munich for American style Thanksgiving dinner and heard about Kennedy's and decided to give it a try. For one thing they have NFL (dare I say 'real' football?!?) on the big screen. Food was quite decent. Not my mom's Thanksgiving but that would be asking a lot. Atmosphere was great - loud & friendly.
We WILL be back to try the burgers - they looked great - most likely this will be Sunday evenings when they have NFL!!!
Kennedy's is not a bad place to hang out. It's more of a bar than a restaurant but the food is quite good, the burgers and meat dishes in particular. The beer, which includes strong ciders and other international selections, are also quite good. The prices are very reasonable and the place, even though in a cellar is very spacious.
Minuses: Reservations, if you get one at all, are only possible until 8pm. It's always very full and loud and, if you have the misfortune of going on Wednesday, Karaoke night, you'll get a chance to meet some of the worst singers in Munich who insist on singing over and over again.all night! Add to that a couple of strong ciders and you've got the perfect recipe for the worst hangover the next morning!
Would recommend a visit but either with a reservation or as early as 7pm in order to get a table. And definitely NOT on a Wednesday night or on a game night.
I had such a fabulous night at Kennedy's. We ended up here after meeting two English guys who assured us that Kennedy's was an amazing American-Irish pub in Munich. We were there on a Saturday night and there was a great cover band playing American hits from the '90's. It was a very diverse and super friendly crowd of 20 to 30 year-olds. I would have to say that it was the friendliest bar I have ever been to in the world. I love the beer gardens in Munich, but Kennedy's was actually a lot more fun than any beer garden or beer hall.
-massive Irish pub with a few choice images of JFK on the wall among many other b/w photos from the home country. They were playing American football on the telly when I went in for a beer and a sit-down. The place was packed and some folk were even watching the game! The Irish beer on tap seemed to either be Guinness or Kilkenny. I'm not complaining as I really didn't come to Munich for a non-native brew. Kennedy's, however, is in a prime spot right by the Sendlinger Tor U-Bahn stop, the heisse Maroni stand, and the lovely Sendlinger Tor theater. Popping in before or after a film isn't necessarily a bad thing to do. :)
