    My sister and her husband were here for a visit, and so glad we decided on McClearys for lunch! Our server, Thomas, was very good… as he always is. Food was great, drinks were fabulous and the whole experience was wonderful!

    Some food was served cold and when I asked about it our server said that they were having trouble "heating stuff in the kitchen". (Really?) Steak of a salad was order rare and served well done and sausage I had was overcooked to the point where I couldn't eat the ends. No trouble heating the food there. (Sarcasm). Looks like the best bet is to only stay with burgers and sandwiches.

    Food was great as always! Fish and chips, pot pie, and shepherds pie outstanding. Slightly disappointed in the smoked brisket as t was tough and, imho, not smoked nearly long enough. Everything else was great as usual!

    Server was prompt and attentive. We both had fish and chips and was underwhelmed. The outside was crispy but the fish was mushy. Fries were crisp. Came with coleslaw and house made tarter sauce which were both average. Neither of us had any alcohol but by the menu looked like a fair assortment of drafts, cocktails, whiskey and wine.

    McCleary's was very short on help when we arrived and we waited some time before anyone even brought us water. Eventually, they called other servers in to work and the service returned to their usual high standards. Otherwise we had a very pleasant meal.

    The food missed. We ordered the wings and they came out lukewarm and the meat was mushy. The pieces also looked smaller than what one would expect in wings with bones. They advertised their fish and chips as having been voted top 5 and having returned from England recently, we wanted to try it. Again, the fish didn’t taste like haddock or even cod and was mushy. Lots of breading and not very flavorful. Waitress was nice and staff was pleasant. Just didn’t feel the food quality was worthy of a pub style eatery.

    The food was very good, although I left the table to use the restroom after our appetizers and soup, and when I came back, the meals had arrived and my wild rice was already cold. My grilled salmon and green beans were excellent, my husband’s Pittsburgh Steak Salad was attractive and delicious, and my son’s Fish & Chips (large portion of fish!) a specialty here, was very tasty, and there was enough to take home some. Overall, a great experience!

    Food was average at best. Hubby said fish and chips were horrible. Music was great. Noise level high but to be expected on St Patrick’s Day. Server fair. Rushed us out of seats. Reservations allowed only 90 minutes for dinner. Added 3% fee for credit card before they knew if you were paying by credit card.
