Once you visit you will understand why McCleary's is so popular. The service and food is excellent. They couldn't be more helpful and attentive. We ordered two appetizers and they were both delicious. The salads were fresh and tasty. I had the crab cake sandwich and it was excellent. There were six of us for dinner and everyone raved about...

I can't believe I came to an Irish pub & *didn't* have a Guiness with fish 'N chips! But there were SO many menu items I wanted to try. What a nice variety on the menu - and the descriptions sounded like quality, balanced, interesting ingredients. Between my dinner companion and I, we had some Irish beer (Smithwicks), crab potato...

We came here for the fish and chips, they sure didn't skimp on the fish. It was huge and batter fried served on a huge basket of fries. We ate inside, it was early and quiet so it was a nice atmosphere for my husband and myself. All the tables were candlelit and the lights are low. Our waitress was... More

Really friendly staff and wonderful food, we loved it! Mushrooms as a starter with crab were divine and the special prime rib steaks were wonderful.

We picked McCleary's Public House for a Valentine's Dinner. We chose to go early (5:00 pm) and made an easy reservation the day before. We dined in the enclosed patio in front of one of the two gas fireplaces. Very nice ambience! Comfortable - not fine dining. The server was graceful and competent. The food was served at just right... More

This is a great place to stop for food and a brew. The newly remodeled back eating area is wonderful. The service is great. The only little complaint I have is the music was too loud today on the porch. It's hard to have a nice conversation with a friend when the music is too loud. Other than that. Fantastic... More

My son visited McCleary's previously and told me they had the best fish and chips, so I had to try them. We had a Sunday afternoon meal there and ate in the back veranda. Very nice with 270 degrees of windows and Ivy looking ceiling. The bar had multiple rooms and really reminded me of my experiences with real English... More
