Simply Amazing.......

What an awesome place. Inside is very nostalgic with a lot of woodwork. It was the outdoor patio that was breathtaking. Numerous bars, water fountains, the gardens were amazing. Going there after a long day of work definitely transformed me into another time and place. It was like a peace of... read more

Great Irish pub - perfect Irish pub atmosphere with excellent food. Corned beef was delicious. Cabbage was a little hard, perhaps undercooked.

On our 2-day whirlwind tour of St. Louis, we stumbled upon McGurk's. We weren't looking for a bar scene, so we were pleasantly surprised that we found some really good Irish food in a casual dining setting! The Guinness stew was delicious, but I couldn't keep my fork away from my husband's schnitzel (insert joke here). Outdoor seating is available,... More

My friends and I always come here after one of us gets a tattoo as a sort of celebratory ritual. The place has terrific food and good historical ambiance. The inside is lovely, as are their gardens. The only thing that is kind of difficult is if you are a food allergy diner. The staff does go out of their... More

When a friend recommended this place, I was expecting classic Irish dining...what we got was a pub with a palate. We had the homemade chips with malt vinegar which were so delicious as a starter. I had the bangers and mash. The bangers were homemade and were bursting with excellent flavor. My girlfriend had the stuffed chicken breast with asparagus.... More

This is a great place to eat in the Soulard area. The outdoor patio is second to none. The sandwiches are all pretty good and one of the favorites is the potato soup!! It's a great place for lunch or dinner or just to have a few drinks and enjoy the awesome patio!

This is one of my favorite places to eat in St. Louis. We especially like to sit outside in good weather. They have an excellent list of craft beers on tap and an even bigger list of bottles of interesting brews. The food is excellent and the service was just fine. Highly recommended.

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.
