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 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.

We had dinner and a couple of beers. All of the favorite Irish meals are on the menu - shepards pie, bangers and mash, etc. The selection of beers was large. The atmosphere is more like a sports bar.

We had dinner at MacCool's at the advice of the front desk staff of our hotel. We liked it a lot. The service was excellent and the food tasty and nicely presented. The menu has a number of appealing options. Definitely a go back to place. The location is odd, tucked in a weird little strip mall on the bottom... More

Not an item on their menu that I would not order again. Their Lamb is exceptional. The Sheepherder's Pie is fabulous. They have a great selection of Irish Whiskey. Great service and knowledgeable staff, particularly in the bar in respect to whiskeys. Great Atmosphere and fantastic food
