My wife and I were here with a friend while our daughters were auditioning for a summer program at a nearby ballet school. I found this place on Google Maps and thought it would be good to try because it was not a chain restaurant. We were here on a chilly Friday night. Fortunately we had no problem getting table...

WOW!!! First time there last evening. Two of us had the chicken which was the best we've ever had!!! The fresh sage and the flavor of the kale was amazing! One other person had the trout, which was also full of flavor! We took home the bread pudding which is to die for, and the vegetarian lasagna that was full... More

Good service; good value for drinks and pub grub. Excellent wide TV screens to watch sports and live band playing popular music.

Very relaxed atmosphere. I had a Rueben and it was enough for two. Good corn beef, messy sandwich. Most Ruebens are. I would eat here again.

The food here is really amazing. Honestly, I expected it to be a decent pub, when I was invited to this place, but I never thought the food was that good. I ordered an Irish Club and the bread was grilled right, crispy but not to hard. We had a few drinks and they're all good. The staff was very... More

Checked TripAdvisor before visiting this Irish Pub. Although sometimes skeptical of too many good reviews, this place lived up to it's good rep. Food was amazing. Must have the venison pork belly burger. Truly one of the best burgers I have ever eaten. Service was great and it was family friendly. Our first meal in Silver Spring MD and our... More

A chilly day in Silver Spring had my wife and me looking for a warm respite, and we found it in McGinty's, beginning with the warm-hearted and cheerful waitress. The Monday - Thursday $8.95 lunch cannot be beat! I had a tomato bisque soup (but could have had one of four salads) that was exceptional, and the fish and chips,... More

In my single days this we were we hung out for pub quiz, or just for drinks, on a regular basis. Their food manages to be both authentic and seasonally fresh. It's definitely more on the side of what new chefs are doing in Ireland with fresh ingredients, with mushy peas and boiled meat banished to a distant legend. Don't... More

Went here on a friday night. Place was not really hopping yet. They have a bar downstairs and some tables. But they have additional seating upstairs, and i do mean upstairs. It is two full flights of stairs. If you have an elderly person with you or somebody who might need help see if they have an elevator before you... More
