I usually love McGlynns and have for a long time however my recent visit left me a little disappointed. We were there on burger night, early about 5:30 and it wasn’t too crowded. The burger itself was very good but the plate they served or on was so small, an appetizer plate and the French fries were very dry and hard and the portion was not great. There was maybe 8 fries on the plate. Our server was very sweet, but kept forgetting things and was very slow to bring drinks and didn’t check on us very often. She forgot to put our appetizer in and brought it to us after we had eaten our dinner. The app we chose was a special, the blackened shrimp and crab nachos, and I would not recommend this or order again. There was little to no crab or shrimp and there was hardly any cheese. Just a pile of dry chips with a very large glob of guac. Like I said I love this place and will come back, my dinner there prior was excellent. Just very disappointed on this evening and will not do burger night there again.

I had never visited McGlynns before and was very pleasantly surpised by it. The wings were awesome and all our kids loved the pub food choices. We had great service too! We will be back!

As always our Server Dylan was outstanding. He couldn't be more friendlier and ensures that everything meets our expectations!

Love McGlynn's Pike Creek, it's been my go to local favorite for over 15 years. Decent food, good service, and a fun pub atmosphere make this a comfy place.

An enjoyable meal. We were there during U. Delaware parent's weekend. The kitchen backed up quickly and despite a reservation we waited 45 minutes for our table. They need to manage on the high flow times a bit better in the kitchen. Our waitress was terrific as well as the bar service while we waited.
