When this place first opened it was considerably better. The cobbler soup (potato and leek) was fine as was the bangers and mash. My wife was not satisfied with her dinner including the cheesecake. On the bright side, my son enjoyed the Gallagher burger. It's unfortunate to see this restaurant decline in value as it can be a fun place... More

Lots of people really seem to dig McMahon's, and I will admit, it does have some ambiance if you go there at the right time. However, there are also far too many people who hang out here (seemingly regularly -- at least when I went there more often) that are just looking for trouble/there to get completely trashed. Don't get... More

After having tried McMahon's several times I feel I can give the drinking experience a thumbs-up but the dining experience a thumbs-down. The array of beer on tap is nice and it varies from time to time. The house wine is OK but be prepared for the old style tiny wine glasses. It's an Irish Pub, what did you expect?... More

We recently had to go to McMahon's for an intimate wedding rehearsal dinner. I hoped that they had improved over the years. We soon found out that they had not, and there was no reason to ever go back again. The food is lousy and expensive.

We went this evening, our friends frequent the pub and suggested we give it a try. We did...and LOVED it! On Sunday nights there is a group of "pick-up" Celtic musicians that get together and play. They were great and only made the warm atmosphere, even warmer. My husband and I both really enjoyed our meals. I had the, Guinness... More

We were passing through Warrenton on a Sunday evening at dinnertime with friends and randomly picked McMahon's. We were seated by Emmitt, the owner. He was very personable and we enjoyed chatting with him a few times during the meal. He described the Irish dishes on the menu and between the four of us we tried every one he recommended!... More
