Awesome Patio

Had lunch here with friends and sat out on the fantastic patio. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. It's a small and simple menu but I don't think you'd be disappointed with anything on it. Service was great for how busy it was. Would definetly go back!

Awesome atmosphere everything you would expect from an Irish pub. Great food I had corned beef and my wife had the bangers and mash. Then we stuck around for the band it was a traditional irish band thick accents and all they sang all the Irish beer drinking songs it was great.

I don't typically feel then need to write a review after having a bad experience. I just choose not to return to that place of business. However, the experience I had at this Pub yesterday may be the worst service I've ever had. I've traveled around the world and around the country. We were meeting a diverse group of friends... More

If you love live Irish music and great food, then McGurks is the place for you! Love their ranch dressing, hot wings and potatoe skins. Add a couple of brews and fun music, it's a wonderful night! You can sit close to the music or further away if you wanna chat with friends. They also have a patio! Parking is... More

My wife and I came here after our birthday dinner for a cold pint and were thrilled to find out that a "pickup band" was playing traditional Irish music! What a treat! We were told by the wait staff that the band was a hodge podge of musicians that had not necessarily played together before. They were fantastic and very... More

The place is just north of the ABush Brewery and a brief drive. The garden seating was nice with plenty of vegitation. The lunch menu had a good selection and variety for most tastes.

I ordered the beef medallions meal last week at the O'Fallon location. The waitress, while taking our order, didn't even look at us. She was looking around, which made us feel like she wasn't paying attention. When the food came, my steak was supposed to be medium well. While the one medallion was, the other was cooked medium rare and... More

We stopped by for drinks after dinner next door. The live Irish music was excellent! While the band took a break, we ventured out to the beautiful patio. Really fun place!
