We went Pub 1842 before a concert. The meal and service exceeded all expectations. The fish and chips were honestly the best I’ve ever had. My husband had the bbq sampler. He’s a bbq lover and is picky. He loved everything on the platter.
Cocktails were amazing. Overall a great experience. We will definitely be back as we are locals.

The turkey burger was good, but I found a piece of a clear plastic bag in the salad. I showed the bartender who took it away but I lost my appetite after that.

Restaurant was pleasant, food ok . Not worth a special trip. Places like this license a well know chef’s name ( in this case Michael Mina) to give it an air of “exclusive “ but the food/ service is nothing like the real Michael Mina. My wife said it’s more like a TGIF restaurant. I’m afryshe is right.

This is my 4th time going to Pub 1842, the beer selection is great, and they have very nice signature cocktails as well. The appetizers and food is also very good, I usually go for a burger and beer myself.

Pub 1842 was fine, but that's the problem. "Fine" doesn't get you far when you're surrounded by "wow".
I have been to Michael Mina (Bellagio) and Bardot Brasserie (Aria) and really enjoyed both, which is why I am so puzzled about Pub 1842. It just plain misses. The food is ok, the drinks are ok, the ambience is ok. But, especially for the price, there are much better options available nearby.
A surprising miss.

I read about their bacon burger in AAA magazine and how it was voted one of the best burgers on the west coast. Since I was in town I just had to try it and it did not disappoint!! Hands down one of the best burgers ever. It’s about $20 and doesn’t include fries so that’s too pricey to eat regularly but on occasion it’s a nice splurge. Service was slower than I would’ve liked and I couldn’t believe a bar like this didn’t have regular red cherries to add to my Shirley Temple, especially when I saw young kids ordering them around me. Cherries are the best part! But all in all it was a great choice for dinner and I’ll be back next time I’m in Vegas.

We have eaten at a few of the restaurants at MGM Grand and decided to go more casual and thought Pub 1842 may be a good choice. I expected more than the experience we got. The best thing I can say is they have a good beer selection. The service was slow considering they were not that busy when we were there. The food was very bland. We thought being associated with a chef the food would be comparable to the other places we had eaten at the MGM. Too many other choices so no we won't return again.

I went there for my pre-concert meal. Wow! Not only did they seat me quick, the waitress was on top of her game on getting my order. For a quick & simple meal, I ordered the mac&cheese side, which they brought out fast. YUMMY! Great job taking care of the influx of concert goers.

The food was decent, but not spectacular. I did not readily remember what we ordered here, but upon reflection it was okay. I would not go back anytime soon. My wife had the Beef Brisket and I had the 1/2 chicken. We ordered a side of fries and they were very nice. The Jalapeno corn bread was also good. Overall a decent meal but not memorable.

Seating was ready with our reservation. They have booths and tables. Both my husband and I ordered the bbq pulled pork sandwich. It’s served with fries and you can also order slaw which they put on your sandwich. It is the closest to North Carolina pulled pork that I have eaten. Our water glasses were always filled and they brought us refills of soda without our having to ask for a refill. The staff was very efficient and friendly. They offer an extensive beer selection. I’ll go back the next time I am in Las Vegas.
