took the family here for a quick dinner. I have been here before a few times and I keep forgetting the food is terrible. I go a turkey club which had maybe one or two slices of turkey on each layer. My wife got a spinach salad and the dressing was horrible. My son got a kids chicken fingers and... More

I was in area on business which is unusual given the area which is considered more rural. I enjoyed a cup of their homemade Potato Leek Soup and a Fish & Chips Sandwich. Both were very good. Atmosphere was typical Irish Bar setting, spacious, clean and friendly. Definitely would recommend this one.

A casual style, sit down restaurant where something is always happening. Irish music, guitar solos, DJ's and more make this restaurant an enjoyable venue. The food is well prepared, and the menu . A good place to had many choices. Good choice for a burger and a beer, or a casual dinner. And, the entertainment was a plus. Two guys... More

Service just okay and food was so so. The manager is rude and the bar area is very noisy. I had been here before and did not have a good experience I decided to give it another try, but same problems.

Nice causal atmosphere for a business meeting. The hostess was very accommodating to our group of 10. The service was prompt and the food was good in taste, speed to table and proportion size. I have eaten here solo before at the rail, so this was a nice change and WMc's did not disappoint!

If you want to go to a bar and get cursed at because the bouncers want to go home then go to Willie Mcbrides. Don't even think about staying there any time after 1:30 because you will get screamed at by the bouncers and bartenders to "GET THE F*** OUT". How are you going to run a buisness and treat... More

Fun bar and restaurant. Reasonable prices and very tasty food. The Fish 'n' Chips is the best I've ever had including places in the U.K. A fun local place to grab food and drinks.

Nice step up from the old Cryan's. Very popular sports bar and above average food. Good for couples, families or groups. Nice decor too.

I am always a fan of Irish pubs but I was even more impressed with this one. They had a great wine selection and lots of food choices, not just Irish fare. The atmosphere inside was great. They had a nice bar area that would be perfect for after work drinks. The waiter was fast and friendly.
