“A Fine Music Pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

In this handy pub ( near Hilton as well as Trades bar) on 2 nights and there was a live band playing on both nights. Both bands were cover bands but played different kinds of modern music and both good with Cherry Bomb particularly impressive...who else uses a wind machine for their front singer?
Istanbule Kebab shop is 25 yards away for when pub closes...Mexicano Pizza better than the Kebabs

“Lively pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Been kind of a local for me over the years. It's an excellent pub and very busy at weekends when live bands are on. Snow patrol were formed here.

“Decent city centre pub”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Wee bit tired and totally mobbed when last in pre-Xmas but nice enough pub. Drinks fairly priced and service fine. Never eaten there. Not average, it's good, but not 'very good.'

“Great place to relax & enjoy good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

Tried MacDaniels for the first time yesterday and must say my partner and I were both very impressed. I had the macaroni cheese, served with chips and the freshest salad I've seen grace a restaurant plate in Dundee in a looooong time!! No limp lettuce here! The macaroni cheese itself was just the way I like it - a real thick, creamy and super cheesy sauce. My partner opted for the steak pie with chips and veg and insists it was really good too!
Overall, MacDaniels serves good, hearty, pub-grub at a reasonable price. Definitely recommend!
