It's a pub, so the decorations, atmosphere, and noise were exactly what you should expect. Stayed in the small downstairs area which is primarily a bar, and hockey was on the TV. Decent selection of beers, the fish and chips were excellent, and the bartender kept up. It can't all be good so I must say the hostess at the... More

I had dinner here on an unseasonably warm Sunday evening. Of course, I didn't order any Irish food. As a native New Englander, I was surprised at how well prepared the calamari was. The crab cake was also cooked to perfection. This is a solid choice for a good, relatively quick meal.

Have not been to Ireland, but this has the feel of what I expect an Irish pub to be. Great service, good selection of beers, good hearty food. Shepherd's pie, fisherman's stew--well seasoned, well plated, tasty.

Mc Ginty's Public House has very good food for an Irish bar. All 4 dishes were enjoyed by everyone. And the service was very good and friendly.

Small Irish pub downstairs, large restaurant and bar upstairs. TVs throughout. Menue has large selection with some good authentic Irish staples. Service is usually good but did have one experience where we were ignored to the point I had to get up and ask the bartender for help.

We stopped in for lunch on a weekday. We were seated in the downstairs bar, which is short on atmosphere. Our server was average. Someone recommended the mussels as an appetizer and we were glad they did. They were about the best mussels we've ever had! The Greenbird (Turkey burger) was skimpy on toppings but still managed to taste great.... More

I came here for dinner. The Irish Casserole Sampler was great. I also really liked the Roasted Chicken Breast.

Terrible service, rude bartenders! I went here ordered a long island, no ice and the drink tasted like flat soda. I said it wasn't strong enough and they still charged me. The bartender argued with me about how he made the drink. The manager had to come out...and almost sided with him about me not liking the drink. It tasted... More
