The atmosphere was quaint inside and festive out. We chose to sit at the bar which was lit like a true pub and enjoyed some good local beer. The Irish chips were good but not extraordinary. The grilled three cheese was delightful and enjoyable but left me wanting. The cheese was unevenly spread in the sandwich and I would've liked... More

I went to McGurks for a friends birthday. It was a last minute decision so I was hesitant on how it would be. We were able to sit outside by a fountain and it was amazing! We has great weather. I had some pasta dish. It was okay but my sister got the fish and chips which I wish I... More

I had no idea the outdoor area would be so picturesque. Perfect gathering place with friends. Drinks and the appetizers are really good. You feel as if you could be anywhere...terrific place to go while the weather is nice in St. Louis. Add it to your list!

A live band was playing inside and the music was really good, some couldn't help but feel it and dance!! The place is really large and when... More

Had dinner at this Irish Pub and was somewhat disappointed. We dinned inside and perhaps that was a mistake as the people dinning on the patio seem more pleased with this restaurant. The inside was fine as far as the restaurant goes. The food was average at best. One of us had the fish and chips which come with homemade... More

Two separate occasions here. Had a Guinness stew and a Guinness while my friend had a ribeye. Both scrumptious and service was excellent. Came back for some night life drinks – good people; and drinks to be had. Impressive tarp garden and useful as it rained most of that evening.

Great place....and then you see the garden!!! Yay!! We were visiting the area and had no idea where to go...we picked McGurk's to 'regroup' and decide where to go. We walked in the door and noticed they were set up for live music. After having a drink we decided to 'look around' in the bar...little did we know that they... More

My parents love the outdoor garden dining area here, so of course, this is where we celebrated my mom's birthday. The corned beef was superb, and the cheeseburgers were grilled to perfection!

Nice selection on menu at reasonable prices. I had an excellent Reuben and Guinness stew. Service was friendly and on the spot. Would definitely go back if the opportunity presents itself again.

We had a group of 16 ladies (Ages 50-80) from our church dine at McGurk's outdoor patio Saturday at 11:30 a.m. (They took reservations which was a big reason that we chose to eat there!) It was the first visit for many of the group, and all loved the beautiful, shaded area. We could see and hear the waterfall and... More
