“Now this is a patio...”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

What a tranquil, inviting patio. it's big with flowers and fountains everywhere. Great atmosphere. Food was very good. Fish and chips were delicious, especially with the homemade tartar sauce. My wife's burger was cooked perfectly. Another place we'll definitely return to.

“McGurk's has wonderful patio, good food and great music acts”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

For fair weather diners, McGurk's has absolutely one of the best patios in Soulard. All the food is good, at least a notch above most pub fare. And their music acts, many from Ireland, are exceptional.

“Wedding rehearsal dinner”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

John D. McGurk's was the perfect spot for our recent wedding rehearsal dinner. The Patriot room was the perfect size for our group of 45, and had a welcoming, traditional Irish pub atmosphere. The service was perfect, and the buffet dinner was positively delicious. The roasted pork loin was a standout. Afterwards, the Irish traditional music band kept the party going with great musicianship and spirit. We had to dance! Mc Gurk's had the authentic Irish pub feel that we were hoping for to get our wedding weekend started. (An added bonus: Our guests had the option of walking outside to the large patio for fresh air and more festive atmosphere if they chose). It was a perfect evening!

“Every night is a great night for music!”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

Great music is always available at this bar. Really nice outdoor area but I haven't tried the food but right next door is Tuckers for great steak at good prices.

“Love the food!”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

We've been here twice on trips to St. Louis: both this summer and last. In fact we celebrated my brother's birthday last July at McGurk's. The food was great both times and the beer is fantastic. I love the old St. Louis feel of the place too.
