I am privy to what happened in the closing here. It amazes me that family members can be so petty as to force a closing of an icon. I have been going to McAleer's since the 1980s and was one of my favorites. Farewell to...More

Sad to say but, after 65 years at the same location, this institution is closing. Goodbye dear friend, neighborhood watering hole and great spot. You will be missed. 😭 Godspeed Craig the bartender. Carry on!

Very nice and casual spot for a few drinks. The service was very friendly and the atmosphere relaxed. Also has some good outdoor seating for a summer night.

Your won't very likely come here for the food, but it's a loud, noisy and fun place to be with a group of friends. Knowing that, you can certainly enjoy this place, just don't expect too much. They have outdoor table service in warm weather.

this is a local watering hole. The food is mixed. Some items (the chili and burgers) are real good. Others are not so great (the fish and chip). Decent beer selection- prices typical for he neighborhood. It used to be more authentic- the rugged feel...More
