Found a Gem in this Tavern

My wife and I had been visiting in Ardmore and had to try McCluskey's based on all the fantastic reviews I read - and not only from TA respondents but from many other internet sources as well. After all, it's not often that a tavern is rated excellent with their menu items. While the service and... read more

Came for lunch while traveling. Seems like a nice place and I would return but prime rib sandwich was over cooked and service while nice was pretty inattentive even though the place was pretty much empty.

Best pub food around. Love their specials, you can't go wrong. Lots of food always easy to take home a bag of extras. Their burgers are great and the beer is always ice cold. Great spot in the warmer weather with the front windows open. Great wait staff always friendly.

In town for graduations at St Joe's and Nova and catch up W friends. TA was consulted and spot on. All the food was good and portions are suitable for plenty of sharing around. Sandwiches in particular are superb. We almost shyed away due to "steakhouse" figuring might be more than we were looking for....but, it's not really a steakhouse... More

I've kept going to McCloskey's since my last review three years ago and its consistency merits a bump from average to very good. The burgers are still excellent and it remains a good local pub for a family dinner. Certainly the menu is versatile enough for something beyond the sandwiches. Service remains amiable, but McCloskey's can fill up at times... More

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

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.
