“the place to b on st paddy's day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

an irish friend of mine took me to mcgovern's for st patrick's day and we only got in because we went so early. the place was packed but i never had so much fun at lunchtime irish or not. i was surprised at how good the food was being that it was and how quickly we were being served given that there were so many people.

it's definitely a younger crowd but the atmosphere was very friendly. i don't know if i'll return as it's pretty far from where i live but if i'm in the area i would consider stopping in.

“Nice low key place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2011 via mobile

I used go here when I was going to school in the area. Good amount of beer on tap. The drinks are pretty strong. Regular bar food.
