I thought I had made a mistake in coming because there was only one waitress and 3 bartenders and two people at the bar (another fifteen or so diners pop in over the next 30 minutes) I had the Pub nachos which were enough for...a meal - the one waitress did an outstanding job as while as the bartenders who helped outMore

The Pub McKinney is our go-to place for after church Sunday brunch. Great menu for brunch and $7.50 carafes of Mimosas. It usually isn’t as crowded as most restaurants are at noon on Sundays. We recommend this pub to everyone. Delicious food and reasonably priced!

We have eaten here several times and I usually get a burger and beer. But one thing we really appreciate and enjoy are the homemade pork rinds. They cook them up fresh and serve them in a paper sack. Very tasty!

You will love the chicken and waffles! They are not like anything you have experienced before. A really sweet little place!

Absolutely terrible service on multiple visits. This was our third time with really bad service so after three, we disclose via reviews. We sat down at the table, server greeted us, disappeared and we waited 8 to 10 minutes. Then we asked another server to...help us and she said she’d get our server. Another couple minutes past and we finally got our order taken. Another 8 to 10 minutes to get drinks, then nearly a half hour to get our appetizers which were not good at all. It was like they set under a heat lamp too long. We cancelled our next drink order and meals. We went somewhere else and had a great experience. Personally, as a local resident, we are done with giving the Pub chances, so we will not return as there are many other options around the square to get the service you’re paying for, expect and deserve. We spoke to the manager during this visit and now we fully understand why the poor service is accepted. The young lady just lacks professional business sense and basic management skills. A case where the servers are most likely managing her.More

This place is great for happy hour or families! The atmosphere is really neat.... kinda like a pub in London type feel. The service has always been great with a friendly staff that is very attentive. The happy hour is between 4 and 7. If...you get there closer to 4 than 7 seating is not an issue. They even have a semi-outdoor area for days the weather is nice. They offer half price appetizers during happy hour. They discount some mixed drinks as well as locally brewed beers too, but not standard domestic beers (like miller, bud or coors lite) which is kinda bummer but not that bigga deal.The food quality and selection is good too. You can eat healthy if you want to!More

Try the salad with shaved Brussels sprouts and cranberries, it is very good. Then get down to some giant sandwiches, we shared the Cuban and it is plenty. The sweet potato fries are tasty. We chose the outdoor patio, and it was very pleasant. Excellent...service, sorry I didn’t get the name of our server, very attentive without being obtrusive. Great vibe on the Square.More

The Pub, in downtown McKinney is a great place to meet with friends and family! They have wonderful hamburgers and huge, homemade onion rings. The wait staff are very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place for a casual lunch or dinner.

First time here and arrived on a Saturday when it first opened so not busy. The “migas con chorizo” were very good especially with the salsa. Breakfast potatoes and fruit were also tasty. Spouse loved her plain burger and fries. Terri provided excellent service. Add...two sodas and bill was just under $20 not counting tip. Love the bar decor with brick walls. Great music. Two pool tables, one dartboard, one shuffleboard table. Has a back patio that is “dog friendly.” A very nice bar and pub!More

Awful service. Sat at table for 10 minutes before anyone came over. Drink order was wrong (ordered water, root beer, coke - brought 2 waters and iced tea). Food order came. Salad had zero dressing. Asked for dressing - still waiting. Never came. 2 people...sitting at bar. 2 other tables and we still can't get anyone to wait on us. First time and last time to set foot in this establishment.More

5pm on a Saturday afternoon. Not crowded. Four people at the bar. Bartender looked at us and never said a word. She was consumed in conversation with a loud, foul mouthed waitress that really should be ashamed to speak the way she did in front...of other patrons. We walked in, tried to be waited on. Got nothing so we walked out. We will never be back.More

Dinner was great. The Mac and cheese was delicious, we really enjoyed the pulled pork sliders and the Cuban sandwich. We will be back to try other yummy items.
