Run don’t walk to McCleary’s! This place is awesome for inside outside or walk-up dining. Great beer, great service, and a wonderfully authentic pub setting.

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.

Table was ready when we got there. It was right at the entry doorway but they had a curtain they pulled across to block the door and the arriving guests.

The service was excellent. Quick on taking and delivering our drink requests. Quick on taking and delivering our meals. One issue was that they forgot my wife's side salad, but not only did they get it for her in basically no time, they didn't charge us for it. I say "they" because we apparently had a head waiter, and 3 assistants. 5 stars !!!
