We have been here several times in the oast and have always enjoyed the meals and atmosphere. Thie visit was no exception. My wife had a salad and I had a sandwich with a side salad. Portion sizes were perfect and the food was delicious. Excellent tap beer selection and perfect service, all at a reasonable price.

Wonderful bar with extensive on tap and bottle selection, as well as cask selections. The food is excellent and the salmon appetiser is excellent as is the salmon "fish and chips" entree. Blarney bread salads and short ribs are among our favorites. Although it can be crowded during the after work rush, it is a place well worth enjoying, regularly.

A co worker and I went for a late dinner and was very pleased with the food and service! Sheppard pie was delicious and steak was a huge portion and tender.

Fun was had by all on cinco de mayo. Had fish tacos that were super. My dining partner had a quesadilla and enjoyed it very much. I will go back to try other dishes.

This be a rare find for downtown Harrisburg, PA, a walk back to old Irish pub styles. Small but cozy feel, slightly high priced beers, and limited food selection, and a soft hint of stale beer in the air, But if your travel and want a taste of Harrisburg, pa you must stop here and get your picture taken raising...

We always stop here when traveling thru Harrisburg. Friendly staff, delicious food, and a true Irish Pub. Try the Espresso short rib, they are melt in our mouth tender and amazing delicious. Large assortment of beers on tap, and even bigger list of bottled beers from around the world.

We came up to Harrisburg for the night sans kids. We didn't bring any fancy clothes so we couldn't eat at the hotel steakhouse. We went looking for something comfortable where my husband could get a good beer. This place fit the bill. I had the salmon, which was awesome. My husband had the short ribs, which were killer. I...

McGrath's is fine pub food, but if you're from out of town, don't look at this rating and think it's a can't miss. I cannot understand how so many fine restaurants are lower in the list than McGrath's. Crazy. It's pub food, people. Average decent but not four or five star stuff.
