Had dinner here. If you sit in the (very generously sized) bar area, you can seat yourself. The bartenders sound as though they came from Ellis Island straight off the boat from Ireland! Even though the restaurant is a generous size, they manage to make it have a cozy atmosphere. I ordered the sautéd lamb with mashed potatoes and green... More

I lived many years in the U.K. and loved going to Pubs. Thatcher McGhee's makes me think I am back in Britain. I get a lot of visitor from Europe and I always take them there and they all love it. I love their array of beers, the Fish and Chips, Shrimps and the Basket and their puddings are delicious.... More

My wife and I have visited Thatcher McGhees fairly regularly for 'date night', although families will be more than comfortable here since the atmosphere is quite relaxed. The interior decor is quaint old-world Irish, with a few thatched roofs indoors and other Irish items. Between quality and value you cannot go wrong. We have also been surprised at how quickly...

Enjoyed lunch here. Excellent food. Lively atmosphere. Staff was friendly. Seated quickly and food came out fast. Unfortunately, the easy part, the beer, took longer than it should have.

Thatcher McGhee's is a fairly decent place depending on your waiter makes or breaks the experience. We have sat back by the bar in a booth at off times which I enjoyed but when we had to sit there during peak times it wasn't nearly as good couldn't hear each other talking because of the volume of the noise.

Wife and I went out and had a few drinks and a bite to eat before seeing a local band. The drinks were great. The chicken sandwich was great and burger cooked perfect. We will be back. In side is very cool. You feel like your eating bangers and mash in someone else's house ..

My husband had a burger which he said was delicious, I had the corned beef and was able to have half sandwich for lunch special. Atmosphere is very homey and staff friendly and helpful as needed. Great selection of food to choose from.

Measure a roof’s worth by the quality of its thatch;A friendship by the strength of its hands;A love by the size of its heart;And a family by the depth of its loyalty.Thatch can be defined as any vegetation used to roof a structure. The vegetation is gathered, bundled and secured to the framework on top of a building. Thatch functions both as a shingle and underlayment; very rarely is there anything beyond simple framework between the thatch and the inside of the structure.European thatch dates back to before the Middle Ages, when the first small, permanent villages were established. Today, thatch is generally acknowledged for its visual appeal and as a way to add a historic or whimsical touch to a home. While it does impart a storybook quality to many structures, thatch also retains practical aspects of its past.Designed with a traditional thatched roof reminiscent of old Irish homes, Thatcher McGhee’s first opened its doors in Pompton Lakes, NJ in 2006 and raised a new roof in Denville, NJ in 2011. An eclectic blend of new and old, Thatcher’s is a place for friends to catch up, families to share a meal and celebrations to be had. Whether you’re enjoying a Taste of Ireland in the comfort of our traditional thatched roof Irish cottage, or some American fare in the bar or dining room, we take pride in the privilege to be part of your lives.If this is your first visit or you’re a regular part of our shenanigans, we invite you to create new memories with us while having a comforting meal or a refreshing pint!Our newest location, located at 53 Broadway in Denville Thatcher McGhee’s is Northern New Jersey’s newest Irish Pub & Eatery.
