We went for lunch. It's a bit cold in there for my liking, and I thought my food was terrible! The spinach and artichoke dip was basically thick soup, and I think it was a bit pricey for what it was, but my other half loved his burger and wanted to give it higher reviews, so we compromised on average...

Whiskey shots seemed short and shepards pie was not too good and way too salty. When I asked for bourbon whiskey, the bar tender did not know the difference between rye whiskey and bourbon. I thought the first drink was short and the second was shorter.

We love this restaurant! The atmosphere, the food, the prices! They have a great drink selections! We have never had a meal we didn't like here. The only problem is it's kind of small and a lot of the time there is a wait.... But worth the wait!

I really like MacFarlane's although I will say that the quality of food and service has decreased a little over the years. We haven't visited for a few months because in subsequent visits we had slow service, our food was served just barely warm, and our bread pudding was dry and tough (served this way twice now, which is a...

While driving around on the 4th of July we came across this place. The food was excellent. The waitress was very friendly and very good at her job. The burgers were great as well as the sweet potato fries. If you like beer then the choices are sure to please you. We started to sit inside but it was a... More

This restaurant/bar is awesome! The food is to die for, the service is excellent, the alcohol selection is enormous, and the ambiance is really Irish. Rarely do I go to a restaurant and find nothing wrong with some aspect, but McFarlane's is an exception. Just one detail to know - you must be 18 to enter the facility; however, children... More

The beer selection is awesome. I'm glad they now have some on tap. All the food there is good also. It's sort of small and not too many places to sit, but it's still a good place to go for a pint and some grub.

While they let us sit on the deck, I wish they would make accommodations for families that would like to dine inside. The waitresses outfits are entertaining and the food is delish.

If you are interested in trying different beers I believe this would be a nice place but to dine or visit with your diner guest this is not the place - tables are so close you can hear everyone's conversations food was average
