Not as good as it used to be. - Edit

I've been going here for years. They used to have vegan bangers & mash, but no more. The "pub favorites" section of the Green Menu has exactly one traditional Celtic pub item: Fish & chips. You won't find any Irish stew or shepherd's pie here, even though these could easily be made vegan.
This past week I ordered the Chili Verde burrito with jackfruit, which had been amazing on my previous visit (stuffed with jackfruit, moist and delicious). This time, it wasn't even that good; they used an oversized tortilla folded over on itself (lots of layers to chew through on the ends), and the filling was probably 70-80% chunks of potato, with a little jackfruit and not much chili verde sauce mixed in. I won't order that again. Even though the pub wasn't at all crowded when we went (a late Sunday afternoon), it took over 10 minutes for our party of four to get a server's attention, and they didn't seem too happy to wait on us.

Pros: Vegan menu!, Drinks, Atmosphere

Cons: quality of food has gone down, no more vegan bangers & mash, hard to get server's attention/long wait

It's ok - Edit

It's nice to go to a place where they have a clear vegan menu. There's lots of options. It's a dark bar. Staff is very friendly. Food was ok, it was more pub American food. I wish they made Irish vegan food. At the Vegfest a few years ago they had a vegan Shepherds pie that was amazing! I hope they add that soon!

Ask for the vegan menu - Edit

Tons of vegan options, and Chao cheese and BeyondMeat is available. Their burgers, wraps, and drinks were excellent, but the brunch items were pretty heavy on the fat. Very tasty food overall.

Pros: Full vegan brunch & dinner menus, Lots of vegan ingredient choices, Reasonably priced drinks

Cons: Brunch items high in fat, Parking sucks, Gets loud during soccer

Tasty but not my type - Edit

I had the tacos, and fish n chips when I came here. Although the food was very tasty it was very fatty and made sleepy afterwards. In particular the fish n chips were way too oily for my liking, but still tasty. The tacos were a little too salty in my opinion, but a healthier options than the fish n chips. Especially if you don't add so much avocado and remove the vegan sour cream. They have a lot of vegan options and they are marked clearly on the menu huge pro. I probably will not come again, as I avoid oils/heavy salts. if you are not worried about that and just a junk food vegan definitely come check it out! if the centire place was vegan I would have given this place four stars. :)

Pros: Vegan items marked clearly, Spacious

Cons: oily food, salty food

NOT a Vegan, but love the Food! - Edit

OK, you need to know that I like meat. But both of my grown kids are Vegans and they are ALWAYS trying to convince me to try meatless dishes. So when I visited Piper Down on a Sunday morning for the Bloody Mary bar, I tried the Vegan Huevos Rancheros. They were great! Texture was a little different than a scrambled egg, but the flavor was wonderful, fresh, spicy and just the right amount of hot to go with the Bloody Mary. Yumm! Next time I visit SLC, I'm DEFINITELY going back to try another dish.

Pros: Clean, Friendly, Generous Portions

Cons: Too Far Away

Comfortable Atmosphere with Great Food! - Edit

I recently visited Piper Down and was so surprised by how many veg/vegan options are available on their menu. I ordered the vegan spicy buffalo wings as an appetizer and then had the potato tacos. Yum! My friend had the Garden Burger with guacamole and she said it was delicious! It was huge! We really liked the service too. We were greeted by the bartender as we walked in and then our waitress was super fast and friendly.

The decor is really neat and looks just like an actual pub in Ireland. And the 2nd bar in the back (they call it the Temple Bar) is a really fun room. Maybe we will have our Christmas party there this year. The bathrooms were nice as well. It's too bad the back patio is mainly for smoking but I guess you can't have everything.

I'm for sure coming back to this place- I'd really like to try their brunch menu on the weekend.

Pros: Yummy Food, Friendly Staff, Great Atmosphere

Cons: Smoky Patio, Had to park on the street

Something for EVERYBODY!! - Edit

I love this place! They have the best Vegan/Vegetarian options offered every single day. It's nice I can go here with all my friends and have choices. The brunch menu is phenomenal! My faves are Compost Hash, Huevos Rancheros, and the Breakfast Burrito. On the regular menu I love the tacos and the "Miss-steak" philly. The staff is really helpful and can offer some great suggestions. The atmosphere is awesome. I like to just come and chat with my friends, but the trivia, paint night, bingo, and poker are all really fun too!

Pros: Atmosphere, Food Choices, Friendly Staff

Cons: No parking lot, Kind of sketchy neighborhood
