We LOVE McNamara's! The food is amazing, the staff is amazing, and atmosphere is the best! If you can go on a night when they have live music, I highly recommend it. Oh, and try the Scotch Eggs, you won't be sorry!

I was just in Nashville in June and was sad that This pub had not opened yet. Food is great and the service is an 11. I will be looking forward to November2020 for my birthday dinner

Many of the same wonderful employees have been here since day one. That speaks highly of the management and the the teamwork that makes McNamara's successful. No place is perfect, but they 100% step up to the plate to address any issues the diner may...have. They are consistent with the menu and the music. I've never had anything but a great time here and the food is awesome. During the pandemic they are still providing great food and great takeout service. Thank you, McNamara's for your great staff and services. Be Blessed.More

You've got to have Irish ambiance in an Irish pub/restaurant, right? This place has it in abundance. It goes beyond that, though. The food is fantastic. The corned beef and cabbage is phenomenal. Even your standard fish and chips was fresh and tender. Our only...regret is that we visited at lunch and not for dinner when they have live music. I'm told it's a very lively place. Would probably need to make reservations for a Friday/Saturday night.More

Very good pub grub! Shepherd's Pie excellent, Corned Beef & Cabbage with a side was excellent (i chose cold slaw) came with Irish Mustard! Mac & Cheese satisfied the 11 yr. old. Lively atmosphere with live music. What one expect for an Irish Pub.

I still cannot stop thinking about what a great place this was! Listening to Irish music is my happy place and this place BROUGHT IT! Cozy upstairs bar with darts and tables. Downstairs seating for dining and gorgeous bar! We had to start upstairs, work...our way to side bar downstairs before finally landing a seat at the main bar to see /hear the music. Bar staff are top notch! Barback is hilarious! Our bartender came out and danced too! I live outside Chicago and it's hard to get even get this kind of quality Irish entertainment here! 5 enthusiastic stars to McNamara's!! We had Harp, Irish coffee (the Nutty Irishman is so good!) & potato skins! Everything was amazing!! I wish I lived just up the street!More

Delicious Irish meal including Kerry Lamb with carrots and parsnips. Live music, good draft, prices commensurate with the cuisine, good service. I was glad I went there, being alone on business travel.

Went to Mcnamaras this evening. Everything was good until I ordered my second drink during dinner. I watched the bartender pour my 2and drink, there was approximately 1/8 of a shot in a tall glass. I could probably excuse this if I had a clue...why she chose to do this. We had already had Scotch eggs and was 1/2 through our entree. I wonder if I had not watched her pour the drink how much more she would have cheated me. Not sure I will ever go back, for dinner as well as drinks.More

Top notch Irish pub fare like shepherd's pie, fish and chips, and bangers and mash. Fresh, cold Guinness on tap of course, and an outstanding Irish band the Friday night we were there. My fish and chips were excellent -- cod fried perfectly, lightly battered...and not too greasy, the fries thick cut and crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. The music was so good we stayed longer than we had originally planned and had another round of beers. We'll be back!More

Atmosphere there was really cool. I was there on a Thursday night with some friends and family after we just arrived in Nashville and there was live music which I assume they have every night. I had a black bean burger and fries with a...Guinness blonde. The other people I was with had the fish and chips and steak pie. Everyone’s food was really tasty and the prices were not bad at all. Beer selection was mostly Guinness (of course) and other Irish varieties but they also had an extensive menu of drinks with Bailey’s like mint coffee cream and etc. I noticed they had wine too. Overall, a good experience and would recommend to anyone, especially with the relaxed vibe.More
