First time coming here, not sure I would come again. First, the interior needs a serious upgrade. Fake plants that are thick with dust and the dark ambience makes it feel fancier than what it actually is. Wedge salad was good, but not too many restaurants can mess that up. I ordered the scallops and for $31 I received 4... More

White tablecloth, high end dining. Classic dimly lighted brass, glass, and dark wood motif. Excellent steaks and service. Sometimes does not have a "friendly" vibe. Good drinks. Usually not crowded. Expensive.

This was my 2nd visit (I didn't get to pick... ). We waited a long time for our server, no attentiveness at all. The food was awful. No flavor. Tasted like it wasn't fresh. It seems like they seriously need help with running a restaurant. I tried prawns this time because the steak last time wasn't great. I didn't finish... More

Very nice place. Service was very good. The only part of my meal that I did not like was the creamed spinach, it was not creamy, more like soup. I would no recommend it. Otherwise all the other food I had from appetizers to dessert were worth it. Great atmosphere, especially for couples. I would highly recommend and will return... More

Everything was delicious. We had several different dishes and they were all good! Our waiter, Pete, was particularly pleasant.

The local steak and seafood joint that we take visitors to when they are looking for a good traditional meal in town. There are the usual chain restaurants to include Outback and Black Angus but the quality of the beef and service far surpass the usual suspects. Make sure you bring your big wallet because it will cause you to... More

We recently went here with a large group and got there pretty early so the place hadn't really come alive yet. The staff was very friendly and accomodating and they took care of all of our needs. They sent out two complimentary appetizers for us to enjoy and then we went to main course. I would say the steaks were... More

This is the second time in a month that I've eaten at McNamara's. The first time was for a work dinner with a huge table of people, the second time was just me and my husband. Both times the service was very attentive without being pushy. I tried a lot of starters on my first visit - they were just... More
