McDermott's is obviously the locals choice and it should be yours too. The food was very good and we enjoyed all the Irish enjoying their football and Guiness! Lots of fun and good conversation with them. It gets crowded quickly so get there early enough. It is very large and plenty of room. We sat near the bar to take... More

My mom, daughter, and I walked into this pub and the barkeep took about 10 minutes to even notice us enough to hand us menus. Then she promptly walked off to chat with another server and someone in the kitchen. We sat there for 30 minutes totally ignored before we walked out. We may be tourists, but we were there... More

You will make friends with the jovial Irish at this place. It was crowded within 10 minutes of the music starting. And the party goes on all night. The bar is decorated with the police badges from hundreds of visitors. A fun place to be!

McDermott's Pub makes you feel like a local! The service is great and they talk with you as if they have known you forever. I had the best chicken curry I have ever eaten anywhere! Later in the evening, we enjoyed traditional Irish music, live. The beer was cold, the crowd was lively and the evening fine! There are plenty... More
