British/Irish cuisine. From broiled lamb to Irish stew. Great outdoor patio area. Not a franchise.... local owner. Friendly atmosphere. Within walking distance to many hotels in the Layton area. Nice place.

Ate there with a group of friends and we all really enjoyed it. Have not been back but that is not a reflection on the restaurant. Will likely return soon.

Atmosphere like a real Pub. Great service. Nice beer selection. Lamb ribs a must for a starter. Pies authentic, good choice for your main.

Mac Cool's top 10 rating is well deserved! We were a party of 5 and everyone commented on how much they enjoyed Mac Cool's. Great beer selection and menu and the service was good. I would definitely go back!

MacCool's is our go to family gathering spot. We love the huge round table, the Irish sayings, the wonderfully informed help, and the ever present owner/manager. We love the food. The salmon is the best we've ever had - seriously, the Buffalo Shepard's Pie is amazing. The kids get burgers there, and they are always a hit. The servers know... More

Stopped in MacCools on a Monday evening on a work trip. It was a little bit slow (probably due to Monday night), but the service, atmosphere and food was great. Beer was decent (I'm from Michigan so my expectations are high in this regard ; ). They also have an indoor shuffle board table that some friends and I had... More

My husband and I have enjoyed Mac Cools mainly as a location of great beer. They have a couple of menu items I prefer and would highly recommend their Irish Shepherds Pie, it is truly a comfort food. They also have a hamburger with pastrami on it that is quite good. Have been disappointed in the fish and chips...fish seems... More

We showed up on an off night with a ton of people and they did an outstanding job of making us all feel like we were their most important guests

I read the reviews and had mixed feelings about going there. I was by myself and got seated in the back at a long table. There were a few others at the table. No big deal. I had the salmon it was good. The service was good. Not a bad place and I would come back and try something else.... More

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
