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!

You will love the flavors. It is not your usual bbq. The lamb rib appetizer is fabulous. It is not like anything that I've had before. It is way better than just wings Expect to pay a little more, but it is worth it.

I discovered Mac Cool's over a year ago and have loved it. The variety of food is best described as Irish comfort food. And all of it is wonderful from the corn beef and cabbage to the shepard's pie. There are a variety of rooms to dine which adds to the experience, We enjoy the Celtic dinning area. Drinks are... More

We had a party of 10 and stopped by this pub because it was within walking distance of our hotel. First, the staff was awesome! Jovial and courteous! The waitress was a hoot. The food was excellent...there were NO complaints from anyone at our table. Would go again when I'm in the area.

I had a good meal here but my experience ordering drinks left much to be desired. The beer menu was not organized well and what was available didn't match the menu. Someone at my table wanted a cider and ordered a Stongbow, but the waiter said they were all out (the case with several drinks listed on the menu). The... More

Just there to have lunch. Good menu selection. Interesting decor, Irish Stonehenge forest clearing meets modern bar...sort of... I had the Ahi Tuna Caesar salad. The tuna was cooked correctly and dressing was homemade, thick and good.
