We had a few surprises here, since we were more interested in chatting before ordering than in paying close attention to the menu. The food turned out to be quite good, but not always what we were expecting. For example, the short rib dish came piled high with savory rib meat, but the mere mention of chipotle in the menu...

Any time your serve Smithwicks, it's a good start. We all had shepherds pie which was very good. On the downside, we wanted the stuffed pork chop which was on the specials. However, at 5pm, they were out of the special. They must have prepared very few. Very small pub so it's not good for a large group.

Great service and food in a pub style atmosphere. There are not alot of tables so get there early. Nice selections of draft beer and a large selection of bottle domestic and import.

Visited to watch the Women's Soccer team. Was able to watch 5 different Olympic events at the same time. Food and service were great. Would definitely return.

I've been to McGrath's numerous times over the last 10 years; however, I'll write about my last experience. We went on a Friday night and were able to get a table in the back. This bar is small but very cozy. Love the stained glass above the bar. Their Irish beer selection is great-not many places have Smithwicks. We were... More

We have been here several times in the oast and have always enjoyed the meals and atmosphere. Thie visit was no exception. My wife had a salad and I had a sandwich with a side salad. Portion sizes were perfect and the food was delicious. Excellent tap beer selection and perfect service, all at a reasonable price.

Thank Tom B
