Irish
Tucked into the heart of downtown Anderson, SC, McGee's Irish Pub & Restaurant offers a distinct alternative to regular eating and drinking establishments. Diversity is the key to McGee's special appeal. Business people appreciate the quality of our menu served in our private meeting room. Others prefer to linger, quietly enjoying the evening and forgetting the world outside. We offer a wide selection of ales and lagers, with a seasonal specialty brew always on tap to please the "stoutest" of beer enthusiasts. Our bar also offers an extensive list of top shelf scotches, Irish whiskies, and cordials.
However, the real pleasure of visiting our pub comes from our kitchen. McGee's Irish Pub's kitchen staff offers top quality, full course meals and table service on par with upscale dining restaurant in the region at a fraction of the price. We also feature an 80+ wine list designed by owner & Wine Spectator Award winner John Benca.

    Even though the power was out the staff did everything to make us feel welcome and glad we decided to stay!!! Even though we were disappointed that most items were unavailable due to the power outage but decided to try different things Mikaya did everything to make our visit wonderful! 4 of the 6 of our party had never been to McGees and they were delighted by the whole experience! A fun time was had by all!!

    A nice Irish pub. Visited Sat March 16th. Went for the corn beef and cabbage. Sadly a big disappointment. Food was terrible. Corn beef tasted like it was heavily salted and ruined taste. Cabbage was mixed with mashed potatoes, yuk Wife's corn beef was a solid lump and not editable . Food was prepared ahead of time and arrive with our appetizers. Service was take your order and never to be seen again. Appetizers were good, mushrooms and Dragon Eggs. We would go back for the pub experience and possible pub grub. However, meal and service I would not recommend.

    We have been coming to McGees for about ten year now, ever since we moved to Anderson. We first heard about it from a neighbor, and fell in love with the place our first visit. The food is always great, and some of the specials are truly outstanding. The entertainment is always top quality, with just enough variety that it never becomes boring. Being a big fan of Irish music it was great to find a venue that features it so close to home.

    The food was absolutely delicious. My wife got the bangers and mash, and I got the tavern burger. She was a little weirded out that there were fried apples in the mash as she doesn't like certain things to mix. I on the other hand thought it was delicious. She still very much enjoyed it, she just removed the "dessert" from her dinner. The tavern burger was very flavorful and cooked exactly as they asked me. The waitress was amazing. She was very helpful with recommendations and was very attentive. We will definitely be back.

We enjoyed the live music, loud enough but not too much. We left after dinner and had drinks somewhere else but then came back that same evening for dessert and more music. Highly recommend!

    Although McGee's is an Irish Pub, their more upscale entrees are excellent! Had the duck breast and it was outstanding, cooked correctly with great accompaniments. The food servers was a true gem - polite, accurate and timely - made the evening. The band which started at 8:30 on the outside patio was just amazing!! Could not imagine a better night out! Keep it up!

    First time dining here. Nice ambiance, low noise level, but it was fairly early on a Saturday evening. Sat in the bar area and the bartender was our server. He was honest enough to tell us it was his first week on the job so he wasn’t very familiar with the menu, but there were other more experienced staff there so any questions we had were answered. I had the shepherds pie, and while the presentation was interesting the taste was quite satisfactory. Not as good as my own, but adequate. Wife’s fish and chips were good and the serving was large. Will definitely be back to try the weekend brunch.
