“Irish pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

Fibber Magee's has the look and feel of an Irish pub but there seems to be something missing. Although difficult to replicate such an historic culture, Magee's doesn't go hardcore with it's decor. The tables and chairs looked like they were leftovers from various close-out sales as they just looked tossed in randomly.
The food was okay but I was a bit taken aback when I was charged extra for a side of mayo. The prices were on the high end. I had corned beef and cabbage. The beef was good with interesting flavor profiles. The cabbage was done well. The plate came with a mountain of mashed potatoes that were just that-potatoes. Very forgettable. The garlic fries were yummy but with the potatoes, was too much starch. Add a beer and the extra charge for mayo and the tab plus tip came to a little over $27.
Overall, Magee's is a good place, it just needs some tweaking.

“Not bad at all”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

Beer is good but not a great selection. Food is ok but there is better around. Atmosphere is nice. The Irish breakfast is very good.

“Great Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2012

I stopped in for fish and chips and a beer after work on a business trip. I was immediate made to feel welcome by a gracious server. The food was hot, and prompt. Awesome selection of draft beers.

“Good bar for hanging out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2012

This is our local pub. It's decorated like an old Irish pub. I would say the food is better than the standard pub food. We like the flat breads and their burgers are prett good. They have nice beer selection and if you go before 7 draft beers are I think 3 bucks. Sunday afternoons there is an Irish session. I like this place because the bartenders make an effort to get to know you. It feels cozy. Its not hard to become a regular. Some of the mid week entertainment is pretty good.

“food is so-so”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2011

I've tried multiple items on their food menu over the years, & nothing really impresses (pasta, fish & chips, boxties, etc)
