I had the Guinness stew and the boyfriend had the classic sheppard's pie. Both were totally delicious, and the portions weren't too big, like most restaurants in America. It was the perfect amount. After dinner, we both remarked that this was the best meal we've had since we got to Layton. We ordered the chocolate cake for dessert which was... More

Had a good first experience with uniquely Irish food at MacCools. Unfortunately they didn't hold up. Wife's corned beef sandwich came with dried out - she felt "old" meat in the sandwich. Fries were cold on delivery. I ordered a Tuna Melt which was anything but. came un-melted. It was a cold tuna sandwich nothing more, and the bread was... More

It has an average brew-bub style atmosphere. They serve, what I might consider, pretty authentic Irish cuisine. Lots of my friends and people I know seem to enjoy the food more than I. Not saying it's bad, just different from what I am used to. The tables and chairs are all unique so if for nothing else, go check it... More

The staff is extremely friendly and makes you feel like returning family. They truly reflect the owner’s values of good food and spirits at a reasonable price. The dinning atmosphere is warm, inviting and one you will have fond memories for a long time to come. If I can offer one suggestion, you must try the Buffalo Sheppard Stew and... More

Took a friend here, and found the service to be very friendly. Each of the three of us had different entrees - lamb shank, trout salad, and open faced turkey sandwich. We all enjoyed our meals, and they were generous portions. Fast service, as they were not at all busy. Close to several motels, like Hilton Garden inn and Hampton... More

Nice service staff, good food. I like the ambiance overall. The booths and chairs are starting to show wear and tear from all the customers over the years.

MacCool's has the feeling of long-time friendship….and the quirks that go with it. It is my favorite local place. The food is predictable pub food with a few surprises - expect tasty, high calorie and satisfying. Their staff is always friendly, sometimes a little busy - but always responsive. Questions are attended quickly by the mgrs. who are very knowledgable... More

The staff was personal and helpful. I was with a large group on business. Recommendations were made to each person after each had a question/answer session and everyone was impressed. Portions are large. Food is excellent. Google this place and drive the extra 1/2 mile from the interstate for the atmosphere, the food, and the drink!
