The food and atmosphere is great before an event and just a casual night for dinner. Love the bar area. It's very energetic on game days, but just the right amount of lively on other nights. Service has been GREAT!!! Even when they are super busy!

Yes, the service was outstanding, the manager (Niles) has a good team and everything appears well run.

I had a party of four and was a little disappointed to be seated on the balcony level, because the main floor seemed full of energy and beautiful. I was delighted to see so many gluten free options on the menu, though, and the food was really good. Will definitely be back!

Reservations for 6:15, seated at 6:40. We were on time for our reservations. What's the point of a reservation if you have to wait 25 minutes? Once we were seated it was 20 minutes until our server acknowledged us.

Been here multiple times. Nice location and always good food. Wednesday evening and they were short handed for sure on the staff. Could see only a couple wait staff had way too many tables so took long for drinks etc. Food is always quality and drinks are well made and average price considering location. Their potato salad is underrated. It is super good. Skip the fries and get the potato salad. Some of the finest in the city.

We have been going to McKinney Roe for several years. It has improved between each visit even thought it was one of the best the first time we dined there.

A great stop on a summer night. Even though we sat at the bar we still felt like we are part of the outdoors. Service was excellent drink selection and menu was good. Although we ate off the regular menu I would go back for happy hour food at a later date.

Good food. For not many people in there it was really loud. Service was ok but our server was just going through the motions. How do you not have steak sauce to offer if you have steak on the menu? Just a thought.

The ambiance of the restaurant, especially upstairs where we were sitting, screams classy restaurant. The menu, however, reads more like a pub. Our service was adequate, but given how quiet the place was that night, it should have been stellar. We were a casual group, and not in a hurry, so the frequent delays weren't really an issue we fussed about, but it was noticed and commented upon at the table. In the hopes these issues are just 'young restaurant' things, I do intend to go back again in a couple of months in the hopes they've been worked out.

I ordered the filet mignon medium rare and it came out medium-rare. It was perfect. I ate it so fast my picture only shows what I left behind which was the tasty parsnips and fries.

My husband and I had dinner there prior to going to the Guthrie on a Tuesday night. The staff was excellent, attentive but not intrusive. The noise level allowed us to enjoy the music but still talk to each other. I had the shepherd's pie and he had the fish and chips both were excellent. We will definitely consider this as an option next time we are downtown for the evening.

I chose McKinney Roe based off the menu on Open Table. When we got there the items we wanted to order were not on menu. Several 2nd choice items were not available. So we ended up with 3rd or the choices so that lessened the value of our visit

It was very pleasant. Staff were extremely courteous, especially given our late arrival time. Our seating wasn’t the best but an upgraded bottle of wine and amazing meal made it all the good. Fantastic time for our second visit, there will definitely be a third

Only thing that was dissappointing was that my reservation was for six, and they were only prepared with a table for five. I double checked everything and all of my confirmations had six people. The food was awesome - they even made the croquettes after we had told them we went there specifically for those!
