Respond to Review of CLOSED: Finnegan's Wake
by Vegan Vagabond
Review: It is extremely nice to see an old school Irish beer pub in a tourist Mecca like Key West have some vegan options, so I don't want to seem unappreciative. I really appreciate it. With that said, there are a few things they might consider to be a little more vegan friendly, or at least for vegans to beware. Although the menu lists that all fried items are fried in non transfat soybean oil, which is a good sign, the issue is that everything is fried together, chicken, fish, fries, etc. Your choice of sides is limited to edamame or steamed vegetables (without butter). I got the impression that our waitress was less than thrilled by my questions, even though they were slow, and she didn't seem like she really was into helping me ensure I got a vegan meal. Q: Is this vegan? A: Yes. Q: Oh, wait. What about butter? A: Oh, yeah, I guess not. This was Thanksgiving day and the only veg place open, so we came here. I would hit the other places first, if given a choice.
