“Great Pub Experience”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Love my time at McGinty's! One of the better happy hours I've been to in awhile. Great beer selection and a fantastic happy hour food menu. Outstanding fish and chips! Friendly service too. I'll be coming back the next time I'm in Silver Spring.

“Excelent Fish and Chips”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

McGinty's an excellent spot for happy hour or dinner. I have been here for both and their appetizers are excellent with so many flavors blended together. I was a little bit hesitant at first when I saw the egg on the top but it was delicious. I also highly recommend their fish and chips. The batter is good but their fish is excellent not greasy but flaky and cooked to perfection. The dining room is upstairs if you want something a little bit more formal. A popular place for friends to meet

“Yummy”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Had a crab cake sandwich and it was so good. So nice to eat real sea food. The mac and cheese was good as well. Loved eating there

“Love my Black & Tans !!”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Great service w/ an Irish lilt. Food was fab (Ahi tuna tartar appetizer, roasted salmon entree and stuffed chix entree). Coffee was pedestrain (it is mainly a bar) and bread pudding was a bit too vanillla-y. Little loud on a TGIF, but we will be back!!

“Great place for Happy Hour”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

I visited for one of McGinty's trivia nights on a recent Monday. Lots of good beers on tap, and Happy Hour lasts until 7 pm -- discounts on both beer and some appetizers. A good place to visit if you are nearby.
