Great lunch. Family atmosphere. Large portions. No pre packaged frozen seafood here! Server was very nice but could have been more attentive after the meal was delivered. Local place. Privately owned. Clean bathrooms.

Located just outside downtown Quincy, this is a place I visit each time I'm back East. The portions are massive and the food is excellent and cooked to perfection. Lots of local "flavor" to the eating experience...cozy is a word that would apply (often associated...More

As my husband said “A+ for diner coffee and breakfast food.” I enjoyed my English muffin, but my French toast wasn’t as moist as I like it.

We had lunch at McKays on Sunday. Plenty of room to park and sit. Very traditional Irish American diner. Superb food and good value for money.

The food was ok. A typical small town diner. Perfect for taking a little ones because it’s not fancy.

It's deceptively nondescript from the outside. Inside, it's a typical local breakfast place. No frills. I didn't expect to like it. And I loved it! I had fried clams (very generous portion) and my friends had fish and chips (yum) and a Caesar salad with...More
