“Nice Place, Average Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

The atmosphere is very nice here, expecially on the heated outdoor deck. The food is a bit on the pricey side for bar food and is no more than average.

“Between cheap and expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

This place is good for moderate sized groups where you don't want to feel cheap, but you don't want to get to expensive. I would suggest getting reservations on the weekend as I sat at the bar to eat, not having one. The food was good, but the price matched what you got. The portions were of good size. You can eat in the smaller dimly lit bar area or the porch which is just a huge sun room.

“Does it again...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We like McClearys a lot. Food is good and reasonably priced, they have bands some evenings, and the staff is very professional and friendly. The only thing I didn't really like was the Shepards Pie.... it was very OKAY... not bad actually, but not homemade tasting, kind of bland.
Stick to the Black and Blue burger or one of the salads. Wait staff and host remember you and treat you warmly.

“Cute little place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Cute little place, but the wrap I had was overloaded with greens. Good but all I tasted was lots and lots of lettuce
