Dear friends love this place and gather here with family every time they visit the area. Based on their reviews my husband and I lunched here on a weekday. The space is small and cozy (smaller than I'd expected - not sure I'd want to be there when full due to probable noise levels). The beer-on-tap list is impressive: I... More

I have been here many times over the few years since their grand opening. At first they were caring and friendly, the food great and the waitstaff a welcoming sight. These days the faces change constantly and so does the service. Coming by for a late supper, the wait person rushed us and could not even wait to get off... More

My family and I loved this place. The food was great and as was the Scottish hard cider I got. We talked with the owner for a while and he was a great guy. The table we sat at was next to the big window that had all these Scottish magazines we couldn't help but rifle through. Definitely a must... More

We really enjoyed our lunch at MacLaomainn's Scottish Pub. The food was very affordable, tasty and different. In addition, the staff was very friendly.

Not fancy, but warm, cozy, welcoming and delicious. I tried the haggis to be adventurous and kind of knew what it was, it was delicious. Don't ask what haggis is until after you try it. Heard the stew is amazing.

My husband and I stopped in for drinks while in Chester - great Scottish beer, delicious Scottish hard cider, and wonderful Scottish atmosphere with the owner in his Scottish kilt! So much fun!

Affordable meals, sports channel on a large screen tv, bar and table seating. A bit crowded and loud as bars tend to be.
