Located just outside the Outlet mall, no need to drive there. Visited on a Saturday afternoon around 5pm, spattering of people but not busy. Irish themed menu but just not quite the Irish environment. It's a house converted into a bar/restaurant with outdoor seating. The food is good and so was the service. I would go back but with lower... More

My husband and I really love this bar...great and an excellent food, plus the patio is dog friendly. This is a normal stop for us when we visit the dunes. We order the Prime Rib dinner it was fabulous, one of the best prime ribs I have had in sometime. The beer selection is always great and I partook in... More

We have been here numerous times. Yes the place use to be a house. You actually eat in the old living room, bedroom, etc. to me just gives the place some character. Food is nor really bad and some good beers on tap. Its across the street from the outlet mall. Not much parking at the place. You can also... More

The outside patio is very nice especially in the fall when the fireplace is going! The food is good especially the Guinness stew and turkey club.

Our order was obviously lost so instead of coming to the table and addressing the situation they absolutely ignored us. The waitress offered us a free meal and then never came back I was livid at their attitude they could have cared less if we got served I tried to reach out to the owner and he got rude with... More

The outdoor patio is a nice touch. Our waitress was so sweet and helpful. The food taste great and the portions are "more than enough". We had four people in our party and everyone of us enjoyed our food and surroundings.

We stopped for lunch after shopping at the outlet mall. McGinnis is directly across Wabash from the outlet mall. This is a family friendly pub. The outdoor seating area is nice for families. They have a shade tree that you may sit under or umbrellas. The sausage sandwich is very good. Try the chicken soup with tortillas. It is out... More

We came for lunch. Nice selection of draft beers. Good sandwiches. Tomato basil Parmesan jalapeño soup was very tasty. Shepherds' pie was very tasty but visually very unappealing. It looked quite frankly, disgusting. I would not order it again even though it tasted good. I think next time I'll get a burger or just come for a beer.

We were pleasantly surprised to find an Irish pub with excellent food and ale. A place not to miss! Reasonably priced...and they even have a "fix your own" Margarita bar. Inside and outside dining in a charming refurbished turn of the century house.
