John Cowley and Sons Irish Restaurant and Pub is a third generation family owned and operated business since 1972. Still managed by the Cowley family, they are dedicated to revitalizing dining in downtown Farmington.


Our menu reflects an Irish inspired Gastropub that offers modern American comfort food with an Irish twist. His food is made 97% from scratch, and focuses on the highest quality ingredients available prepared with a mix of modern and old school culinary techniques.


We offer a wide array of rotating Michigan micro-brews, and have the best whiskey and scotch list around! Our highly trained staff of service professionals are knowledgeable and capable of creating a memorable experience with warm and friendly service. Everyone is family that walks through our doors, and it's always a pleasure to see you again!


Searching for a great night out to kick back, have some drinks, go dancing, and have a great time? Every weekend we have live bands that perform everything from modern/classic rock, blues/bluegrass, and pop. Check out our calender or on our social media pages for more information on who's playing when.


Our building is perfect, for any function large or small. We have an intimate space perfect for small business meetings that can hold up to 12 people, but have the capacity to do larger functions up to 200 people. Regardless of the theme or type of function you have, we can make it amazing for you and take off the stress of planning your event. Our Banquet Manager, Emily, can plan any function you desire and help you streamline your event for success.
