I love their Guinness beer there, the best in St Louis. We both had fish and chips (crisps) was great. We also had the spinach and artichoke dip, served hot, with pita bread, excellent. We normally sit outside on patio, but tonight because of heat sat inside. Excellent service also

The best corned beef I've found in St. Louis. Great patio when the weather is nice. The homemade chips are great too.

Love the outdoor seating...my favorite appetizer is the amazing artichoke dip. The pita chips are unique as they seem to be fried but oh so good! They often have neat Irish bans inside so even in the winter it's a great place, but the outdoor seating is THE best!

This is one of my favorite bars/restaurants in all of STL. We now live out of town and it's always our meeting spot when we go home. The atmosphere is so fun, the bars are plentiful and the food is AMAZING! The grilled cheese?? You will want it all day, everyday! Not a bad thing on the menu and a... More

McGurk's has consistently good food. It is an Irish Pub so the inside is a little dark. They have a HUGE outside patio which is very nice for a lunch or dinner. Part of the patio is covered so if it is really sunny you can opt for under cover. The patio is the nicest that I have experienced at... More

This is a great bar/restaurant with a great outdoor area. It has lots of levels and seating. Much lush greenery. The food was very good. We had sandwiches which were very good. The people close to us had salads that looked great. No cardboard iceberg lettuce to be found.

Tried this place. Asked for the patio,and WOW!!! The scenery is amazing, but the food. THE FOOD WAS AMAZING! I had the Russell Street Ruben (my God) the best sandwich I've ever had. Our server was great. Hats off to this place. From the front you wouldn't expect this. Will definitely be back!
