Outdoor seating

I love eating outdoors here, next to the large fireplace. My favorite menu item is the Shepard pie. The service is friendly and courteous. It is also located a block from lighthouse place for convenience during those shopping trips.

After doing shopping at the outlets, my sister's and I stopped here for lunch. It's a quant little place, loved the aptomsphere. The food was amazing! Our main dish did come before our appetizer but otherwise I would defiantly go there again.

We stopped in on a weeknight after shopping at the outlet center. It was late and we had 15 minutes before the kitchen closed. We were served quickly and had reubens which were terrific. A side of red potatoes, fried and delicately spiced,were especially tasty. Restaurant is in an old large home and is certainly reminiscent of the "old sod".

Waiter must have been new. He did not introduce himself, but came to our table and asked what we wanted to drink, oh and did we want to see a menu? So after we ordered our food, (keep in mind we had come to shop at the outlet mall and didnt want to spend our entire trip at a pub).... More

We stopped by on a bike ride and were pleasantly surprised how good the food was! Good service too ! We sat outside on the patio and had some cool music besides.

My husband and I stopped in here for an early dinner during the busy summer season. There is a large and attractive outdoor seating area that we almost sat in but being that it was on the warm and humid side we chose to sit inside. This is an Irish Pub and had some Irish fare on the menu. My... More

Irish egg rolls and the Dan-o-fries were excellent appetizers for our family. Artichoke sandwich, prime rib sandwich, and shepherds pie were all very satisfying meals. No room for dessert. The waitress was god, but shared just how tired she was a bit too much.

Stopped in at McGinnis today for lunch. We haven't been there in about two years. The food was very good & priced right. Our server today was so nice. We will be back soon!

Literally found this joint on our way to a coffee shop. Right across the street from the lighthouse outlet mall. Appetizers were very good but a little pricey. Excellent but hole Irish pub atmosphere, located on the main level of a house. Seems like a nice neighborhood pub.

We walked to the pub from Lighthouse Place, it wasn't crowded and we were not rushed. We had a great appetizer of fries with onions and bacon. For the entrée we had Burgers and Rubens. The Rubens were on a light rye instead of the traditional dark rye. The food was just o.k.
