Enjoyable experience

I really loved the set up. There was live music and some of the staff did some dancing. Food was above average. I wasn't a huge fan of the bangers and mash, but my wife really liked the shepherds pie.

Great food with the sounds of traditional Irish music. We had the grilled Salmon and the salmon cakes were to die for. Fried mushrooms were delicious. The service was exceptional and we will go back again.

Fantastic pub with a good feel and great food. The scotch eggs and fish & chips are a must have. Great live music on the weekends and a better than average draft beer selection. Always a pleasant stop whenever we are traveling through Nashville.

Our family of four enjoyed our dinner at McNamara's immensely. Three of us had Fish and Chips and the Steak and Guinness Pie. Both were delicious entrees. We also enjoyed the Black and Tan Onion Rings as our appetizer. They also had a great kids' menu to accommodate our picky eater. The only downside is that we waited a long... More

Friday, Saturday and Sunday night the band Nosey Flynn plays. The crowd loves this band and joins in on the festivities. We also loved their salmon filet some of the best in Nashville. Also on some Tuesday nights they have a traditional Irish music acoustical session in the cottage part of the restaurant. They also have live celtic country music... More

Read a great review prior to going and this little pub lived up to it. Food was yummy. There was a kids menu. There was a band playing Irish music. Gave the feel that I crave when out of town-and that is being in and experiencing something unique. This little pub has won awards and based on our visit, rightfully... More

My fish was great. Everyone enjoyed the home made chips and the beer selection. A couple of people wanted a bit more seasoning on their entrees but the sides were a big hit.

I've been in three Irish pubs in the US that make me feel like I'm sitting in old Dublin - Kevin Barry's Pub in Savannah, Georgia, the Dubliner in the basement of the Phoenix Hotel in D.C. and McNamara's in Nashville. I'm sure that there are others, but mostly I find faux Irish. McNamara's is the genuine experience. First of... More
