Description: Established in 1978 as a one room pub house, John D. McGurk’s Irish Pub and Garden has risen to the top of the class among the Irish Pubs in St. Louis. In fact, Esquire Magazine, in its June, 2011 Edition, saluting the best bars in America, chose John D. McGurk’s as its only bar honored in the city of St. Louis. McGurk’s is known throughout the Midwest for its great Irish music, food, drink, and its 10,000 square foot outdoor garden, complete with breathtaking landscaping, a fountain, a waterfall, and two terrific outdoor bars. Inside and out, McGurk’s is nearly 20,000 square feet of pure Irish fun. Irish musicians entertain the patrons nightly, traveling to St. Louis from Galway to Dublin, Cork to Derry. The inside of McGurks is a series of strung together dining rooms and bars. Its brick and wood décor with wonderful Irish artifacts makes one think they are enjoying a pub in Dublin. McGurk’s has become a great place to celebrate special occasions like rehearsal dinners and private banquets. McGurk’s has all the available Irish beer and spirits and serves lunch and dinner seven days a week. In addition to typical pub grub, McGurk’s offers wonderful steaks, assorted fish entrees, pasta specialties, and a delightful rack of lamb. Great food, drink, and entertainment make McGurk’s a memorable stop. We look forward to raising a pint with you upon your next visit. Sláinte!

Love McGurk's. The atmosphere is always fun, service great and the cocktails outstanding. The patio is one of the best anywhere.

The food at McGurks is good but the patio is the main reason we keep going back. Its a great place to relax and enjoy dinner.

McGurk's is our go-to O'Fallon, MO restaurant. The service is terrific and the variety of food selection is what makes this spot one of our regular favorites. Ask for Shelia as your server (but all of them are tops). She makes our day every time we dine with her smile and kindness. The Main Street Ruben is awesome!!

We loved the outdoor seating! Very cute and the food was just okay. The pretzels were a little softer then I like but pretty fun place.
