This is a great Irish themed restaurant. More of an Irish American mix of meals. And a little heavy on the American side. Either way it was still good. We enjoyed our food and the place has a warm and cozy feel to it. Its...More

I like McGees, the food is dependable and the beer selection is very good. But I stopped going a couple of years ago when they switched their fish and chips from cod to pollock because of scarcity and price. Happily, the thick, flaky, perfectly fried...More

There is a wide variety on the menu. The roast beef debris sandwich and the beer cheese soup are what I usually get because they are so good. Live entertainment and trivia nights add to the fun. The front isn't very handicapped friendly, but other...More

This restaurant was recommended and Im glad we decided to check it out. They have an extensive wine and beer list. I tried their "Mick"aroni and Cheese Skillet and it was really good.

The food was good, the entertainment (trivia) was fun and the wait staff was attentive. You could not want anything more.

We've stopped going because I never had a meal that made me really care about coming back. The atmosphere is nice so I'd stop in for a drink if I were the type who goes out to drink, but there are so many good restaurants...More

Sorry, haven't been there on Trivia night.
Richard M: I read our online reviews frequently. Of course we love the good ones & are disappointed in ourselves for the negative ones, but try to move on & do better the next time. Yours has kind of stuck in my craw........"the stuck in the 70's" thing. Although we change our menu annually, I've always treated the "Celtic Classic" section of our menu like a sacred cow. On a recent trip to the coast, my husband & I visited two of our favorite Irish Pubs & realized their "Celtic Classics" was exactly like ours. YOU ARE RIGHT.....we are all stuck in the 70's. Even in Ireland, pub menus are more modernized. I've always wanted McGee's Irish Pub to be it's unique self.......not so much a replication of a pub in Ireland, but a reflection of the Ulster Scot history of our locale in the Appalachian foothills. Therefore, in the spirit of moving into the new millennium, we are updating our menu with more "signature entrees" - inspired by our area's Scot-Irish cultural history, but with modern presentations & preparations. I hope you will return, try a few, & tell us what you think. (P.S. We're keeping the Fish n Chips though).

Tucked into the heart of downtown Anderson, SC, McGEE's IRISH PUB & RESTAURANT offers a distinct alternative to regular eating & drinking establishments. Diversity is the key to McGEE's special appeal. Business people appreciate the quality & value of our lunches, as well as the speed & friendly manner in which they are served. Others prefer to linger, quietly enjoying the afternoon and forgetting the world outside.
