Walking by and stopped for a quick lunch. Server was nice enough but kept forgetting everything we asked for. Even asked a second server for help and still waited. The food was just ok.

My friends and I on a bachelor party elected to go to MacDintons based on proximity to the restaurants. Within walking distance to many other spots. This bar is very expansive with multiple rooms for different tastes. The band inside was fantastic on the night we went out. Outdoor bars were great, with very good service. Being from the NY...

Been coming here for years and love this place. Great food and friendly staff. Great place to watch soccer as the crowd gets really into the games! Food is good and a great pint of Guinness. Well worth the visit for a sporting event.

This is a frat house masquerading as a bar/ restaurant. Lots of kids puking and ex-cheerleaders batting eyelashes. That's cool if that's what your aiming for. If you want to eat.....then go elsewhere. Tried the Shepherd's Pie. Looked and smelled like a dirty diaper. Seriously, I don't know how the health department lets them serve food. We got out of...

Very popular place in SOHO. Irish bar, great drinks, great music, great crowd. As they say, "The place to be seen in your green." Stopped in early around lunch on St. Patrick's Day. Hoped for some good food, was sorely disappointed. Chose the "Reuben and fries" from the menu, but they brought me and meagerly appointed sandwich and...chips. When I... More

Young crowd. Good music. Nice pours. Waling distance to nearby hotel. Worth a look for late night when staying nearby

Went on a Thursday night and it was packed. They had $1 draft and they were pouring barrels of those. This is a great atmosphere and people kept coming.

MacDinton's is a Tampa staple. Whether meeting friends or drinking alone, MacDinton's Irish Pub is always filled with smiling faces and cold beer. Irish Beer on draft!

We only went there for drinks a couple of nights but definitely had the best male/female ratio of any of the bars in Tampa. They also had a great 90s cover band both nights. It's a huge place with multiple different places to hang out and plenty of bars. The drinks were also reasonably priced.

We attended on a Monday night and it was rather quiet. We sat at the bar and had excellent service. Regina the bartender was awesome, not only is she a hottie but she is also fast and friendly. I had the bangers and mash and it was pretty damn good. I would definitely return.
