Regular visitor to McLearys. 1st place I would think of when dining out. Steak is always cooked to perfection. Value menu is just that... excellent value. If it's steak your after you couldn't go past Mc Learys for a top class meal!

Went for a meal with my wife and was totally amazed. Excellent welcome from staff and seated where we preferred. Meal was fantastic and the wine menu tops. Brilliant service and no rushing like you might get in some places. Overall a great experience and would definitely recommend.

I ate there recently with two of my closest friends . All three of us went for the steak which was cooked to perfection. Starters and desserts were delicious too. Staff were friendly and attentive without being obtrusive. All in all a very pleasant experience.
