Once you walk in & greeted by the bartender, you get the sense of being in an authentic Irish Pub. The beer selections on tap are a true testament as well. The menu is tradional of Irish Fare & American, as well as daily specials....More

Refuse to seat you, even as a regular, until entire party is present. A real downer. Have stopped going here. Otherwise good food.

Stopped in for a bit too much food and loved every mouthful. The buffalo chicken dip was a superb start, the curry fries exactly as they should be, and the salmon was spot on. Portion sizes were just right, and atmosphere and bar staff professionally...More

A decent Irish pub and restaurant in Denville. We went in for dinner and had to wait for our friends before being seated. We sat in the room that looks like a little. The place wasn’t crowded (except maybe the bar) but the waitress took...More

The beer was cold and the pub food was OK but the recorded rock music was so loud that you had to yell to be heard. Problem was; everyone else had to yell as well.

Unfortunately, for a true vegan, there are not many choices. There are a few salads and possibly a daily special. Sorry.

My response would be that it depends on the ages of your children and when exactly you are planning on going. Lunch and early dinner time I would think are fine for children. I have no idea about the free refills. Call to... More

Measure a roof’s worth by the quality of its thatch;A friendship by the strength of its hands;A love by the size of its heart;And a family by the depth of its loyalty.Thatch can be defined as any vegetation used to roof a structure. The vegetation is gathered, bundled and secured to the framework on top of a building. Thatch functions both as a shingle and underlayment; very rarely is there anything beyond simple framework between the thatch and the inside of the structure.European thatch dates back to before the Middle Ages, when the first small, permanent villages were established. Today, thatch is generally acknowledged for its visual appeal and as a way to add a historic or whimsical touch to a home. While it does impart a storybook quality to many structures, thatch also retains practical aspects of its past.Designed with a traditional thatched roof reminiscent of old Irish homes, Thatcher McGhee’s first opened its doors in Pompton Lakes, NJ in 2006 and raised a new roof in Denville, NJ in 2011. An eclectic blend of new and old, Thatcher’s is a place for friends to catch up, families to share a meal and celebrations to be had. Whether you’re enjoying a Taste of Ireland in the comfort of our traditional thatched roof Irish cottage, or some American fare in the bar or dining room, we take pride in the privilege to be part of your lives.If this is your first visit or you’re a regular part of our shenanigans, we invite you to create new memories with us while having a comforting meal or a refreshing pint!Our newest location, located at 53 Broadway in Denville Thatcher McGhee’s is Northern New Jersey’s newest Irish Pub & Eatery.
