“Excellent food, a bit drafty with the door left open.”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

I dined here with my girlfriend, as i had been after a good steak for a LONG time, and this place delivered!

I Ordered a medium cooked rump steak (can't remember the weight) and it was perfect for my taste, I had garlic butter with it and it was excellent, too.

The staff were attentive and very well trained (as staff, not pets, haha!)

The only reason i'm giving a rating of 4 instead of 5 is because the door was left open even though it wasn't hot enough to warrant it, i understand the place can get a bit hot, being a steakhouse, the grills will be fired all day, but freezing the customers isn't the best idea.

Very good experience though, and i will be returning a lot.

Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

I went to the restaurant for lunch. the service was excellent, the decor and seating is delightful, and the food was terrific. we had the two course lunch which was excellent value for money. the steak choices from the grill menu was extensive, and cooked to perfection. thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. Will definitely return, and try an evening meal.

“A wee night out”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Last night my husband and i went for a meal on our own to Mcgonagall's steakhouse Inverness we have tried to go there on several occasions but never been able to get a table so this time we booked which i strongly recomend at weekends. when we arrived it was clear they were busy but the staff acknowledged us showed us to our table by the window which is nice as you can see out to the street and the river Ness,the waitress gave us menu's and the specials board which i have to say sounded lovely local crab cakes to start with and local venison for the main course but i went for an 8oz sirlion steak of the chargrill menu which doesnt sound big but i opted for the side of king scallops for a supplement of £3.45 which was worth every penny as they were the best ever tasted i also ordered black pepper sauce,the meal comes with chips or potatoes i went for the chips they were lovely you get grilled mushrooms,frilled tomatoes and homemade onion-rings yum yum!! My husband went for the caledonian steak which comes on a leek and potato cake with local haggis on top and a whiskey sauce i had to stop him licking the plate when we go back which we most definately are i am having our steaks were cooked to perfection we ordered them medium and got that you could have cut it with your fork so tender.Our only complaint would be that it was noisy but that was down to a large party at another table so no fault of the resturant.
