We were on motorcycles travelling in the east Salt Lake City area. We stopped in the shopping centre and spotted the Mac Cools. It was very inviting and we had good food and great cool beers. Service was very good except they seen we were bikers and put us away from the other guests. We are not that kind of... More

I really wanna like MacCools. The beer selection is good, the food is good, but the bar setting is lacking. The chairs are terrible. Really low backs and press right on your spine. Mentioned this to the large bald dude (manager (ish)) and got no response. I travel here frequently and eat alone. MacCools just doesn't have a fun vibe,... More

I love Irish food so thought we'd give this a try. Atmosphere was lacking in Irish charm, but the menu had traditional Irish fare at a reasonable price. The wine selection was limited and servings were small. The fish and chips were excellent, as was the trout. The hit of the evening was the trout with root vegetables. It was... More

Walked in, saw the unique pub menu and grabbed a seat with a few colleagues. Ordered some simple Irish meals, but received some extraordinary dishes instead. The establishments take on pot pie is worth your time. Large, flaky and flavorful. Even the Sheppard's pie, which included some prairie meat, was delicious. For those wanting a nice Irish beer, go no... More

This place is tucked out of the way in Layton,but a great find. The bangers & mash and portobello sandwich hit the spot. Now time for coffee and dessert.
