HUGE Whiskey book. They serve Irish Breakfast with black pudding. Close to a pokestop from most of the tables. Close to a gym from the front tables. I had Oban scotch because they were out of my Paddy's whiskey but its all good. They had a lot of my favorites in the Whiskey book. It was a great birthday lunch.

A nice dark pub in the row of establishments. In addition to the ale, I had a scotch egg, which was tasty. Just having one in the order seemed a little light, but I enjoyed it

Mac McGee stocks more than 300 different whiskeys from around the globe. They carry an especially impressive collection of Scotches, but also have a plethora of bourbons, ryes, and whiskeys from every state.

I have only visited Mac McGee on weekend mornings to watch my beloved Liverpool FC on the big screen. I am new to Atlanta and was very disappointed when I discovered I couldn't order beer for the early Sunday morning games. But other than that (which isn't Mac McGee's fault) I enjoyed the experience enough for multiple visits.

The service is excellent, the food is good and sitting on the second floor porch is a great place to watch the world go by. Flash fried okra, with onion and jalapenos is a good way to start a meal and open up your sinus.

The Shepard's pie here is as good as in Ireland. The bread is homemade as is the butter. Both are delicious :) I have always eaten outside, which is a little more relaxing, but inside is a bit more of a bar atmosphere. They specialize in several varieties of whiskey, but you can't go wrong with the food either :)... More

This is for Mac Magee on Sycamore. This was a tough decision on a 3 or 4. I was originally going to give a three but in remembering all the good things went with a four, although …. I will leave you with a few facts. I walked in at 5:00 on a sunny warm Sunday and found that we... More

We had a family reunion here the night before a wedding reception. Had a lot of atmosphere, not too quiet but you get into the vibe of the place once the food and drinks arrive. There were 12 of us and we all enjoyed the evening. The girl who runs this place really works hard in all aspects to keep... More

We were recommended to visit Decatur by a bartender in Atlanta and told to visit this bar and boy we weren't disappointed. A most friendly greeting, English premiership football, the best Irish Coffee ever and a fabulous lunch. One of the highlights of our time in Atlanta.
