Good food, great wait staff. The feeling of a traditional Irish pub, with American accents. Close to Lighthouse Place shopping mall.

Ate here for the first time. Located in an old historic home with lovely wood work and interesting décor. Very convenient, walkable from the Lighthouse Outlet Mall. Service by Stephanie was excellent. Tables are set up in various rooms of the house and there is also a full bar area. Really enjoyed our food and look forward to returning for... More

We came here on a recommendation and were very happy that we did! Our group had 10 people and the service was excellent. Everyone was friendly and very knowledgeable. The food was great. I recommend the fish and chips, as well as the Guinness stew. In fact our group was so happy that we'll be back to try more of... More

Went here on a client's suggestion. The vege burger was one of the best I have had in a while. Choice of one side is included, making it a decent meal and value. Sit as close to the back, though, it is cold in the front section! (Winter only)

McGinnis is close by our vacation home and it's become a favorite. Excellent pub food including Irish specials as it's name implies. I've enjoyed Shepherds Pie, Guinness Stew, Ahi Tuna and Shaved Prime Rib. Their beer selection is great, and both the food and drinks are a good value. They also have a nice patio half the year, local music,... More

Just across the road from the outlet centre, I wasn't expecting much from this Irish themed pub, having experienced decidedly below par service and food at O'Rourke's bar in South Bend the previous day. I won't bother writing up Notre Dame's local, but the McGinnis pub is worth a mention. We had simple blue cheese smothered salads with 'Scottish Eggs'... More

We went on a quiet Monday night with the place almost empty (we thought it was closed). There was a fire roaring in the fireplace on the empty patio so we decided to go in. Lucky we went in. We were met by a very friendly and cheerful server (who was surprised it was Canadian Thanksgiving given her sister lives... More

McGinnis is located on the first floor of a house with wonderful woodwork. The beef stew was hearty and filling made with chunks of beef and plenty of vegetables. They took the liberty of spicing up an Irish dish with chunks of cayenne pepper creating a unique stew. My husband had the fish and chips which was very good also.... More

Great pub. My wife and I really enjoyed the atmosphere and staff was friendly. We happened to be there while Sun King had a tap take over offering free tastings. Great outside sitting area.
