Went there with a group of 6 around 6pm. We got there just before the Pub Crawl runners arrived and it got real busy real fast. Staff were moving fast to keep up but they did a great job and food was excellent

We ate at McGinley’s on Sunday afternoon. We simply ordered avocado melt and burger. It took them 40 minutes to make it. Service wasn’t great either. Our server didn’t refill our water even once and didn’t give us silverware and napkins. I had to get...More

After a long day sitting in conference, walking from the Marriott to McGinleys was the best way to end the day. The Shepherds Pie was perfect and it felt like I was back in my mom's house at the kitchen table eating comfort food. Since...More

Had heard numerous people say eat at McGinleys so we did. Yuck. had fish and chips (frozen battered fish) not as good as in the lower 48, and the stew. Couldn't even finish the stew as it had some kind of hot pepper in it...More

If you remember the TV show Cheers, you will love this place. Of course it is by far much bigger than the old Cheers Bar in Boston (been there) and the fireplace is always churning out big flames of welcome. Come to this place hungry...More
