Fun Place to Hang Out

The place was casual with pool, darts and shuffleboard. The food was ok, but the draft selection was great. They even let us sample some before ordering. We ordered the pork rinds, and they were gone instantly. The kids played shuffleboard and darts afterwards and we all had a great time.

If you visit downtown Mckinney, Texas, you will be presented with several good dining options, from the casual to the more upscale and expensive. We usually go for the casual restaurants and for our needs, The Pub was a good choice. The Pub is just like its name suggests- an authentic looking pub with soft lighting, televisions for sports viewing,... More

Food at the pub continues to improve, but cleanliness needs attention. The menus were so water/beer stained they were unreadable. Especially in the low light st table. Coasters were stuck together and mold was growing on the underside of both. I ordered the left hand milk stout in a bottle it was so flat and tasteless it was almost up... More

I am surprised this isn't rated higher. This is one of our favorite places. Good atmosphere and good service. The draft beer selection is great. I never eat pork rinds, but I am addicted to the ones here. Their specials are usually delicious, so check the specials board. We take our kids with us early, or we go later just... More

We love The Pub! Great, laid back pub atmosphere for casual get together's with friends over a beer and some really great food. Burgers are something special as are the pomme frites!

I've never come here for anything else, other to drink, but they always make good cocktails! Take your friends and grab the Jenga game!

The WORST Experience ever!!!!!!! We sat for 20+ minutes and no one waited on us. I went up to the bar to order drinks and the bartender was rude. The draft cider we order was undrinkable and I will drink almost anything. I tried to speak to the manager and he had an attitude and wouldn't make it right. This... More

First visit was after a wedding reception for drinks. Pretty much just a neat bar. Reminds me of something out of a little town in London.

The food is good. surprisingly good. great bar. there is a patio but the interior is kind of cavernous. I've never seen an employee that did not have at least 5 tats showing. Without any tats I feel a bit out of place. If you like tats, and drink, and bar food by all means this place is for you.

Went there for a Birthday celebration for a friend. Our waitress was terrible and had a very bad attitude. While we were there they had a trivia contest. The lady announcing the trivia questions over the sound system was yelling into the microphone which made it very hard to understand. Someone from our party asked her not to yell into... More
