    A little scary when walking up to the front door. There was a fight going on near the outdoor tables. This was the best roast beef sandwich that I have had in a long time with you.

    I hadn’t been to this place in close to 10 years but had a very nice dinner experience here recently. Food was pretty good. Pricing was reasonable. Although a little dated, atmosphere was nice. The very bright spot to our dinner was the service from TJ. He was outstanding!!

    McGlynn’s did social distancing well. Food consistently good. Servers need to get used to new COVID protocol like providing utensils and asking about condiments usually on the table

    Not only did we enjoy being back in one of our favorite establishments but they were doing an excellent job at sanitation, mask wearing and minding the social distancing. Kudos to your management and staff members for such a job well done.

    We made a reservation (I was w my girlfriend and our three children). The reservation was at 6:45 We were seated immediately ordered drinks and half price nachos. We asked for the food to come out as soon as it was ready. At 7:30 we were still waiting for nachos and a side of spaghetti. Our waitress never addressed the huge delay. We ordered stuffed meatballs and they were awful. Overcooked and an overall bad menu item. Not a good experience.
