Nothing special; food was good but not exceptional; just happened to be here for lunch one day and was neither impressed nor disappointed. Fried food galore; LOVE the onion rings though.

All of my coworkers love this place; I'm not thrilled with it but it's okay. In Daleville, your options are extremely limited so this is what you have for "fine dining". Their menu is primarily fried fish and some steak options. It's a good place for groups as they have some rooms that can hold a decent number of people... More

McLins has been a popular local restaurant for many years with patrons from all over South Alabama going there. I usually go there for lunch a couple of times a month. They have very good fried shrimp and chicken, with a nice, crisp, and light batter. Their onion rings are superb. For dinner they also have a good selection of... More

Had to try the fried chicken. Delicious, crispy, moist chicken. Loved the fries and the hush-puppies were just heavenly. This is a former church I was told, so they have lots of extra rooms for groups to meet in for meals. the prices were very reasonable. I plan on returning here.

The only reason I even give this three stars is because the steak was fantastic. Pretty much everything else was mediocre at best. The flounder had zero flavor and the service was just ok. All in all of you go get the steak, it's by far the only reason I'd go back

Fried Chicken is excellent. Our small group tried the shrimp, steak and claws. All good. Decor is just country, but very clean. McLin's is a local favorite and all their food is good. Always crowded and sometimes there is a little bit of waiting on your order, but the service is terrific.

This place has rave reviews from all the locals but it can't even try to compete with a real, nice steak house. The staff was very friendly but the atmosphere is severely lacking (like eating in a basement at a picnic table) as is the food. The steak was overpriced for a fatty piece of meat.

The steak was really good and the fried crab claws. You get a lot of food so don't over order. You will be full. Fried chicken was great too but it's hard to mess up fried chicken. We will return again.
