Surprised how good so many of the restaurants in "strip mall's" are we would have never stopped if not for reviews on trip advisor. This was just as good as described, great service friendly and good food.

We came to McKenna's around 10 years ago...My husband proposed to me there and we have been coming back twice a week since then. The folks that work there are second to none and the food never disappoints.! The owners are the most giving and thoughtful people and go all out to help the community.

Always a tasty meal can be had at McKenna's Place. They have a varied menu with options for all hungry diners. Meatloaf dinner is always delicious with a huge food portions. Best chicken wings in town. Wide selection of beers. Very reasonable prices. Nice bar area and plenty of TVs to watch throughout the bar/ restaurant. Great experience any time.

I haven't had anything bad at this restaurant. It is a quaint, hometown, sports pub with delicious food. Love their salad with artichoke hearts! Good sandwiches as well. Definitely worth visiting for lunch!

McKenna's is in the same shopping plaza as the NSB Movie House. They specialize in wings which are good. I would not say that the food is great, but it is normally good. The service is excellent and there are lots of TVs to keep you entertained. Easy to make it dinner and a movie.
