I went in on a Saturday night, as I waited for friends making their way downtown. I had the BEST Moscow Mule I have ever tasted! Then, I looked at the menu and it looked good! Friends joined in and we liked the rueben sandwich (lots of meat) and the Guinness Beef Stew (nice and spicy). I would like to... More

First visit to our local Irish Pub. This was a bit disappointing, it was fairly steady but not super busy. We walked in and there were only two people working including the bartender. We looked around, grabbed some menus and seated ourselves in a booth. After about 10 minutes the bartender came over and took our drink order and we... More

Good beer and good sandwiches in a casual atmosphere. Wasn't crowded when we were there early on a Friday evening, but there were some locals in for a drink. Well located in the downtown area.

A typical pub environment with a good variety of food on the menu. There are several large screen televisions tuned to sports. I had Shepard Pie and my wife had a burger and both were very good. Another person in the group had corned beef and cabbage and liked it. The corned beef was the largest portion I have seen... More

Enjoyed ourselves, ordered Ruben sandwich with fries and chowder soup. Great food, a little slow, only one person waiting tables and tending bar. Starting getting crowded as we where leaving. Would go again.

If your looking for a place quieter than 'Humpy's' which is just around the corner then McGinleys is the place. The menu is an authentic selection of Irish dishes and there is traditional Irish music being played. They also have live events. Shepard's pie tasty and filling and the fish n chips not bad either.

We visited for lunch three times and the two where Emma was working were the best! She was great with the menu and made some great recommendations for both food and drink. Great personality for the job. We would definitely come back to visit once Emma is working!!

After enjoying the live after 5 music in the park we popped in here for a quick bite. There was some l lovely Irish music playing & there was a pleasant Irish menu. I rate it if you are looking for an Irish experience in Anchorage.

McGinley's serves Irish dishes but busy. Takes time to get served and without the music it would be just another pub.
