Stopped in after a movie, very reasonable prices but food was only average. It came out hot and service prompt but not overly friendly.

My family went to McKenna's in New Smyrna for dinner tonight, for my mom's birthday. It was great! Brandy and Tara waited on us, and Kelly made sure everything was awesome. I would recommend this place to everyone.

My inlaws recommended McKenna's as a restaurant to visit in the NSB area. While the food was average and the service was fine it was, in my opinion, just a typical Irish Pub type restaurant. That's not a bad thing- just what it is, if you like Irish Pubs and Pub food McKenna's is as good as they get in... More

My friends and I went to watch a football game or two. We ended up being spoiled bty great food and good service. The atmosphere allows for large and small groups and any game you want to see seems to be made available by a cooperative staff.

Good food but you can see a bit of a difference when Mike is not on the floor. Oysters are the best!

The name McKenna’s should have told me to stay away from the Spaghetti and Meatballs, but it was listed as one of their favorites and I saw that other patrons were also ordering this item. My first impression was correct. Don’t go to an Irish pub and order an Italian meal. This was the WORST pasta dish that I ever... More
