McCleary's is by far one of my favorite restaurants. I have never been disappointed in a meal or service in all the years I have been going there.

This is only the second time we have been there...but will certainly go more often. A must try is the Fish and Chips and any of the burgers. Love the atmosphere. We sat indoors...it's a little dark, but we loved it. You can also sit on the enclosed patios that I think had heaters.
Great menu & great drinks!

My only "ever-so slight" negative comment is that I asked if the Dublin Lawyer was going to be pretty spicy and the server said yes, but I could order it less spicy, which I did.

However, it came out still pretty spicy, more than I would have preferred. I didn't feel compelled to return it and was careful to not take too much sauce with each bite.

Overall, we found this "first-time" visit to be very agreeable and we will come back.

We always request Thomas as our server.
David makes great cocktails and is such a friendly host.!!
We love the food (tried the pub pretzels this time- cheese sauce was yummy. Also got side salads and the lettuce was fresh. Usually I get the quesadillas which are delicious.)prices are reasonable. One of the main reasons we love dining at Mccleary’s is the attention to following covid guidelines - masks are worn& the tables are pretty-well spread out. Also I love that you have lancaster distillery rose geranium gin!!!

Fantastic beer selection! Loved my crabcake dinner. Wife was underwhelmed with the tips on toast. Got crab dip as an appetizer which we both felt could have been better, and the amount of dip didn't do justice to the cost. But again, the beer selection was fantastic! I'd recommend the place, just not all the food.

Visited on a major holiday weekend which I believe impacted the overall experience. Waiter/waitresses seemed a little overwhelmed and likely affected the service. We had heard so many good things about the place and plan on returning on a less popular evening to give it another try. I will say the beer selection was impressive.

Dining during COVID can be challenging. McCleary's does it right. The outside area was beautiful, the food was fantastic and the safety practices made me feel very safe. I will definitely be back soon.

This restaurant was a great choice for a dinner date out. The atmosphere was quiet and the food was amazing. The desserts were a great capstone to the night, and the servers were attentive and made dining easy and quick.

Skip the brouschetta app which is a small bowl of ice cold chopped tomatoes surrounded by cut-up bread. Everything else I've ever had at McCleary's--delish. Esp the tenderloin tips on toast, salad w/ steak (get the fries on the side unless you like hot fries making your salad mushy), all the burgers, fish & chips, crab soup. Perfect Irish pub atmosphere in the bar area, and the back room w/ windows was just about the only place to eat 'indoors' during restaurant shutdowns. Service is spot on, always. Our top choice for Saturday night dinner out.

I always get the fish and chips but it was pretty obvious right away that they haven't changed their oil in a while. There was too much better at either end and it was very, very dark and had a strong grease smell. Disappointing, as this is my favorite place for fish and chips. I understand business is probably down due to COVID, so I will give them another try at a later date. Please don't compromise your normal quality!

Everything was good. We had a large group and were accommodated well. Food was a little slow but with the size of our order and perhaps less waiters to assist delayed it a bit. Not horribly though. All custom requests were fulfilled. Staff was courteous. Will be coming back.

We had a wonderful time at McClearys, as always. The food was fantastic. We especially loved the Tomato Bruchetta for an appetizer. Our waitress was awesome, checked in just enough to ensure we had a fresh drink and plenty of water. The outdoor dining was relaxing and cozy. Looking forward to coming back again soon.

McCleary's Pub is everything you want and need it to be. Step back in time immediately upon arrival and pull up a chair in history! You'll feel like staying for hours upon hours in the traditional pub/inn setting and strangers dining around you somehow feel like friends and family. The food is out of this world.
