Great place to get a nice lobster dinner without going to the poor house. Burgers and fries are perfect everytime. We like to sit and watch a game, have a few beers and chat with friends while waiting for another good meal.

McKenna’s is your typical sport’s bar with food that is above average for this type of venue.

We visited this establishment prior to going to the only movie theater in New Smyrna Beach. They are both in the same strip mall with plenty of parking.

We were greeted my the owner who was pitching in with the bus boy duties for the day as well as being an active quality control manager. This is one hard working gentleman.

The wife had the chicken wings that were the normal sport’s bar offering. Nothing special, but good just the same. I went with the Fish Tacos that were some of the best I have experienced. They consisted of tempura battered fish fillets rolled in warm tortilla shells with fresh chopped tomatoes, scallions and cilantro served with their famous “Boom Boom” sauce, sour cream and Pico de Gallo.

Service was excellent with the food and beverages arriving hot and in a timely manner. The owner dropped by the table just to make sure we were satisfied customers.

This was a very good experience and the movie “The Expendables Two” was a laugh riot. A great afternoon at the beach.

This place is just what you would expect from a run-of-the-mill sports bar, but on the local side. I'd always prefer a local place, but it's similar in menu and style to a TGI Fridays or Applebees. Plenty of TVs, cute waitresses, and generally loud atmosphere. Lots of fried food, of course, but they have frequent lobster and crab specials that provide great value.

Was recommended highly by friends who live near there.
Had the spicy shrimp appetizer (enough for two) and shared the Crispy Fish Fillets in panko with garlic mashed potatoes and a chicken breast dish with cheeses and bacon and a deilcious sauce.

Delicious and very generous portions. Nice servers, great TV s all around the place to see any kind of game you want.
