In late November in the middle of the afternoon, we had no problem getting into McGuire's. We enjoyed lunch here but I would not wait 3 hours to get in in the high season....ever! (I'm sure that must be at night.)
Potato skin appetizer, corned beef & cabbage, beef & mushroom pie, 2 homemade rootbeers (they charge for refills...but they'll tell you that), and a bowl of bean soup ($.18) later, our bill for two was $54 with tip. Portions are generous, though, and they bring you a loaf of warm bread gratis before your meal comes out. That and the appetizer would have been enough for lunch! So we brought home 1/2 of each of our entrees. The corned beef was lean and served with about 1/4 of a small head of cabbage, along with a horseradish cream sauce - approx. $12, I think. The beef pie had a lot of tender beef in it and a delicious, rich sauce - approx. $15-16.
Take your $1 bills to add to their collection. The waitress said they are nearing $1.2 million on the ceiling and the walls. They pay income tax on them, they tithe on them, and they insure the building for them!
A fun, happy, casual place to dine....particularly if you're Irish or fancy yourself Irish!
