Absolutely horrible! I've been here multiple times (only because I live up the street). I have tried multiple dishes here and really tried to like this place. I'm not sure how they can call themselves Irish let alone a Pub. Food has been mediocre at best. What put me over the edge is when I ordered 1.5 beers (shared a... More

You will like MacCool's. Excellent food, super service. Nice beer selection. Be sure to try the lamb riblets. Even if you don't like lamb you will enjoy this appetizer. Irish Rueben superb. Comes with cole slaw or cottage potatoes. Both great.Try the tomato basil soup if its on the menu. Pot pies and shepherd pies excellent. Chicken curry salad for... More

This is close to home, and on Sunday I ordered sandwiches to go. One Pub Club, with salad, and one Roast Beef. First, I waited and waited to be acknowledged when I walked in. Then the woman at the register kept fingering through our salads to make sure the dressing was right - opened both boxes, moved the lettuce around... More

My wife and I were looking for BBQ and showed up next door to MacCool's only to find the restaurant that we wanted to go to closed on a Sunday. As a result of hunger we decided to give MacCool's a try. There were plenty of tasty beers on draft and the service was good. My wife had the chicken... More

This place has really good food and yummy beer. The Ahi tuna is top notch, multiple salads to choose from. There is a kids menu that kids love. Kids can play on the game board and color if you just want to sit back and enjoy some dinner and a beer. It is nice in the winter too because there... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants after a long winter's day. Great irish pub atmosphere. The fare is excellent too. The buffalo shepherd's pie is incredible. And occasionally they have live celtic folk music too

We were just passing through on a girls road trip. We arrived late and needed someplace near our hotel. We were all very pleased with MacCools! Fun atmosphere. Very friendly and helpful staff and amazing food. We asked to seated near one of their many big screen TVs to watch our SF Giants game. Got it. We asked for food... More

We ate here while passing through on a recent road trip, at the suggestion of the reception staff at the nearby Hampton Inn. Good service, many menu options ( it seems nearly everyone could find something they like on the large menu), welcoming atmosphere, and both indoor and outdoor seating.

This restaurant has unique furnishing but we ended up sitting on the terrace as there was a smell inside... weird. The terrance was nice. Service was good; the restaurant was not busy at all for a Saturday evening. Food was ok.

Stopped in for a beer and the name curiosity. Ended up having some soup that was very good. Utah has some odd liquor laws. Bartender was nice and the place seemed clean and kept up.

Thank Brtndr
