Consistently good food!

We come here on a weekly basis for a family get-together. Although we've tried other bars/restaurants in the surrounding areas, we keep ending up back here due to the consistently higher quality of the food. They have rotating specials (half-price burgers on Mondays!) and great menu selections as... read more

I had an early lunch here, so this was before mingling with the "madding crowds" that often come here. Magerk's is an impressive place. The stone and deep wood and mirror motif in the main bar area gives the place a comfortable, clubby feel. The music is designed to attack a younger crowd, but is not too loud. There are... More

Magerk's is a huge typical irish pub. Pretty large menu with a little bit of everything and by everything I mean items like sushi which you wouldnt expect for pub food. My co-worker and I recently dined here for lunch- we sat at the bar so we could get in and out pretty fast. I ordered a seafood salad- It... More

I haven't been here since it was the Bent Elbow, just a bar! We came in for an early dinner on a Saturday night. Wow it was really good. Everything was fresh and the service was spot on. I was really surprised that the "local pub" had turned into a really great restaurant. I will definitely be back!!!

So I chose this restaurant for lunch partly based on location, but also based on some of the good reviews I read here. It sounded like their prices were reasonable and food was decent pub fare. I also checked out their website and saw that the "Daily Special" for Wednesday is $5 sushi rolls, and that sounded appealing. But when... More

This place is always packed for Happy Hour- must be giving beers away or have a BoGo that can't be beat. We skip the crowd typically and go for dinner at 7 or later. Beer selection is very good, not yet impressive, but decently extensive and varied. Food is solid, very god pub fate- wings, salads, sandwiches, burgers, all well... More

We love this place - it can be loud and crowded on weekends but is great during the week. Monday 1/2 price burgers are some of the best in the area (even at full price). Salads and soups are great. I have been with 2 -30 people and have not had a problem with the service or food. The outdoor... More

Went here with some friends on a Tuesday night when it was $3 drafts most of the night. The selection of beers on tap was very good to excellent. They have a lot of interesting menu items specializing in local really bad for you items (cheesesteaks and burgers mostly). They have some healthier stuff but it seems most people go... More

Quick and close to all highways. Great food menu and service. Atmosphere is terrific also. Very close to our home for a meal at any time.
