“Great Pub!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Went with a couple friends for lunch. It was very quiet! Great decor and ambience! Had bangers and mash and fish & chips. The fish was a bit dry on the side. The fries were excellent - best Yukon Gold potatoes! Great service! It's downtown, parking is scarce. Definitely recommend.

“Fantastic pub! Best in Montreal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

We stumbled upon Mckibbin's while on vacation and went back for 3 nights in a row because of how much we loved it there. The atmosphere was wonderful, very relaxed and had the real "pub" feel. The waitresses and bartender were extremely friendly and even remembered us each day we came back. Tasty food, quick service and good local and imported beers. Great place to hang out any evening as there are also events and live music almost every night.
Would highly recommend to anyone who likes pubs, beer and fun.

“That was crappy.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

What is there to say when you wait 15 minutes to be given a chance a chance to order a beer. And then that Carlberg is 8.50. Not even race weekend. Don't support this Montreal gouging. Plenty of other place for good times at fair prices. $18 burger - no thanks.

“Best pub in Montreal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

We love this place! Happy hour is between 5-8 pm on week days so got some great tasting beers and whiskies for a reasonable price. The menu is extensive and the appetizers are huge so would do for a main meal! Jenn B was our waitress most times we went in and she made us feel very welcome on our trip to Montreal and our glasses were never empty! They showed English football on the tvs and we really got into watching the ice-hockey. It helps that they give away free shots if your player scores (they give every table a number corresponding to the players!). Compared to other places in Montreal, food and drink is good value here and the atmosphere is relaxed and fun.

“Worst Irish pub because of bartenders and service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

dropped into a reasonably quiet bar, yet no server got to us in 10 minutes! we gave up and headed to the bar, and despite two of us waiting at different spots for 20 minutes the bartender was more focused on bullying underaged US boarder crossers-"Tips aren't included in this bar" and "This is not acceptable as a tip" were a couple of choice quotes! i exact changed at $28.25 and got the same attitude!

beware awful bartender with weird beard/chinstrap facial hair-fire this guy

bar would have been ok albeit expensive if not for this guy and the service!
