First time there, and we were looking forward to enjoying an Irish pub atmosphere. We were seated in a small side room that was SWELTERING! Our waitress was much more focused on the large table, with screaming kids, also in the room. I guess she figured they'd give her a bigger tip, and she was right! We had to ask... More

I work nearby and can’t say that I visit often. It is probably one of very few full service restaurants in the immediate area but they are really over priced for being so far out and the food is average. I would recommend the black bean burger if you do ever visit but you aren’t missing much.

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.
