The regular Lansdowne menu is available all day and includes these special, Irish-inspired dishes:
- Lansdowne loaded skins: golden fried potato skins filled with corned beef and Swiss cheese, topped with house-made coleslaw and served with Russian dressing
- Corned beef and cabbage dinner: slow roasted corned beef brisket, carrots, Yukon potatoes, and cabbage served in a unique house-made brine with mustard and Irish butter on the side

Entertainment will be provided by Clan O’ Cleary from Noon – 3:00pm and again from 5:00pm – 8:00pm. Clan O’Cleary is a five-piece band known throughout Connecticut and Rhode Island for playing traditional Irish music and original songs written by members of the group. The unique instrumentation arranged by the band provides a fuller sound to the audience. This is done by incorporating at least 14 instruments associated with Irish music, and playing multiple instruments in addition to singing.
Live entertainment during St. Patrick’s Day will also be provided by The Wolf Den and Comix Roadhouse. Sean McConnell brings southern charm to The Wolf Den starting at 7:00pm. Sean McConnell’s career started with a grassroots following and has quickly attracted the attention of Country icons like Tim MGraw, Martina McBride, Brad Paisley, and more. McConnell’s sound – a warm tenor painting vivid stories over acoustic guitar often cushioned by keys or other strings – has prompted a diverse range of music scenes to warmly claim Sean as one of their own.
St. Patrick’s Day is also Silly Sunday over at the newly renovated Comix Roadhouse, and comedian Pat Oates is bringing the laughs with a show at 8:00pm. Pat is the 2015 winner of Comix Roadhouse’s Last Comix Standing contest, a writer for Laugh Staff and the host of the Pat Oates Is Sad podcast. His crowd work skills are regarded by many of his peers as second to none. Guests who are looking for an earlier show can enjoy house hypnotist Jim Spinnato at 5:00pm. Spinnato’s peformances are a combination of magic, illusion, and comedy; with lots of audience participation.
Seasons Buffet has incorporated a special menu for St. Patrick’s Day. On March 17th, guests can celebrate with corned beef, Irish soda bread, Guinness Stout Irish stew, house-made boxty, shepherd’s pie, steamed cabbage, colcannon, potato salad, cole slaw, macaroni salad, Irish potato salad, health slaw, parsley boiled potatoes, Dubliner coddle, and grilled beef sausage.
On St. Patrick’s Day, various restaurants across property are offering their take on corned beef and cabbage – an Irish favorite. Todd English’s Tuscany is offering house-made Wagyu corned beef, salt cured potatoes, Guinness glazed carrots, and cabbage béchamel for $34.00. Michael Jordan’s 23.sportcafe has corned beef and cabbage served with potatoes, carrots, and grain mustard for $23.00. Pasta Vita is serving corned beef and cabbage dinner for two for $18.95.
