McKenna's on the Bay
McxKenna's Could Have Done BetterI made a reservation and requested outside. When we got there we were offered the last table, by the access doors in the sun without an umbrella. It was Mothers Day and hot as can be. For a 4:30 reservation they could have done better, I can't imagine everyone was out there with reservations. We then said it wasn't acceptable, to plz bring us inside. We had a guest from out of town and wanted a booth by the windows. They said the booths were for larger parties than three. We then took a booth further inside. 20 minutes later, they sat a group of three at one booth and a group of four at the other. I think making a reservation should give preference, if I didn't like the view, I would have made a reservation elsewhere. They blew it.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodGreat food & atmosphere. The service was excellent & the marina view was pretty on such a beautiful day. It's close to the Carpenter Theater so it was a nice place to start out a theater day.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love having McKenna's inWe love having McKenna's in our neighborhood! They offer several options to enhance your dining experience. Go casual (bar menu) on the outside patio or more sedate in the dining room, both with great water views that can be amazing at sunset! The live entertainment in the bar is always enjoyable.
I'm not sure why they have a "bar menu" and a "regular menu", because we discovered all food items are available wherever you are seated. Everything we've ever ordered has been really good. Last visit, I had the Halibut Special and it was excellent; although at $32, maybe $5-$6 more that I would have prefered to pay. The wine list is varied with some reasonably priced options. Check out the chop salad and/or the fresh cut potato chips!!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAppetizingThe prawn cocktail set the stage for a perfect holiday meal being presented with such flair that I would have been happy to stop at the appetizer. Well done!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first visit to McKenna'sOur first visit to McKenna's on the Bay and it won't be our last.

The food was awesome and I cant wait to return.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI reserved on the same dayI reserved on the same day and was able to get the time that I want. It was a Tuesday night, the place was almost full and there was singing and dancing by the bar. The place was awesome and the food was good. The place is by the bay and a good view I'm guessing on daylight.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA good time was had!This was my second visit to McKenna's. The first was a Friday for drinks with a friend. I saw the St. Patrick's Day menu and decided to return. My girlfriend and I ordered Black and Tans to start just to get into the spirit of things then I went for the Bangers and Mash. I was very happy with the bangers but I wish they had gravy for the mashed potatoes. The grilled Brussel sprouts were a pleasant surprise however a bit too salty for my taste. My girlfriend ordered the corned beef and cabbage and was very pleased with her choice. We also ordered oyster shots, a treat were seldom get to enjoy. With the entertainment, food and good service, it was an evening well spent even if a little pricey.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
