We met old friends for dinner. Making the reservation on OpenTable was easy, had we had a nice quiet table in the corner for catching up. Food, as always, was great, as was the draft selection.

I had the veggie wrap several weeks ago and it was very good. Yesterday, it was horrible. The wrap had a minimal amount of hummus and the vegetable part seemed as though they had opened a bag of premade lettuce, with which they made the wrap and stuck it in a tortilla. I asked if they had a different chef that night and the person that cleared the dishes had no response. Our hiking club has come to Mclreary,s to eat after our hikes. I will recommend we find somewhere else to dine. What a disappointment. P.S. they only took 30% off my wrap. A classier place should have removed it from the bill.

Brought our friends here for dinner. First time for them. We had a lovely evening. Fish and chips were delicious but my fish tacos were better than any I’ve had in a long time. Friend had the steak special which he raved about. Our waiter (forgot his name but he’s from the Big Apple) was so nice. He got an extra tip from us. We will be back

Server seemed to lose us for a time. I needed a second beer for 15 minutes, the empty glass at the edge of the table.

Our waitress was very pleasant but really swamped with large tables. My husband wanted a second drink but she was too busy to come to our table. I’m not blaming her. Other employees did come by to pick up the appetizers plates and another delivered our food. One of them could have offered to get him another drink as we were only halfway through the meal before he ran out of beverage.
Again, I am not blaming our waitress, she had at least 5 tables and one had at least five men and another at least eight people. Others could have gotten the drink for him. Maybe I think teamwork was lacking.

We love McCleary's. Consistently tasty food at a reasonable price, friendly and attentive waitstaff, and pleasant setting. We prefer the patio but the indoor dining is attractive as well. We often choose McCleary's for special occasions.

We were visiting from out of town and looking for an easy place to stop to grab a bite with our kids. We are a family who has been careful during the COVID-19 pandemic and this was only the second or third time eating at a restaurant with our children since the pandemic started.

We have only felt comfortable dining outdoors, so we made a reservation for an outside table. However, upon arrival, we learned that "outdoor dining" included tables that were on located in a very large atrium-type room, with a high ceiling. The actual outdoor patio was closed. The atrium had windows (not screens) and all were closed. It was admittedly a chillier night, but we had scheduled our reservation early enough in the evening that we would've comfortable eating outside with our jackets on. We did stay for dinner and asked the staff to open our window, which they happily did. The tables were also adequately spaced and all staff were wearing masks. Food was good and what I would expect for a pub. Staff was very friendly and accommodating - 5 stars.

We visited the Pub last Friday p.m. with our son, visiting us from Chicago. We have been there many times and brought him for a return visit which we all loved. Food, ambience, wait staff, attention to detail, all five stars.
