Visiting from out of town with family and they took us here for dinner. We loved it. Fun atmosphere. Good service. Great food. I guess McCloskeys is known for their burgers and two in our party agreed with that recommendation. I enjoyed the chicken Francaise but a little less garlic would have made it better. The serving was way adequate!... More

Try the pork wienerschnitzel. It is the best meal I have ever had. Service was great. I will be back soon.

We've been to McCloskey's several times in the last year. We've enjoyed the food and atmosphere each time. The burgers are outstanding and the beer selection is awesome. We especially liked how the front windows open to give an open-air ambiance.

Have been to the place a bunch of times and it never has come close to letting me down. Food is always superb and the beer selection is great. Love the service, I usually sit at the bar and bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable. Floor service is also great as I have sat out in the dining area numerous times... More

Great spot when you want to grab a beer and dinner. It's a pub, but the food it better than most pub food. Rotating tap list always has great choices and new things to try.

While it won't take you more then a glance straight back to take in the full extent of McCloskey's, its a place that offers more surprises then you might imagine. A consistent spot in the neighborhood for many years (about 75 in my understanding), it fills up at dinner and maintains a stead crowd throughout the night. The food is... More

My ratings of specific menu items: Excellent items include the burgers (best in town), the prime rib (weekends only), the fish specials, soft shell crabs (seasonal), Irish mushroom soup, panko crusted tomato appetizer, caesar salad, and quesadilla (filling changes...

Was pretty disappointed with the service on my one visit there. Waited for way to long for two people. Good was average if that. Probably won't repeat the business. I understand they were probably understaffed but it just wasn't what I was looking for.

A family affair, McCloskey’s Tavern, the Main Line’s oldest Irish pub, has been setting ‘em up for over three-quarters of a century. In recent years, however, this welcoming establishment has gone from a local happy-tappy to an acclaimed “Best of Main Line” award-winning restaurant noted for the quality of its cuisine and service. Everyone comes to McCloskey’s – and I... More
