Recommend the pub, really nice decor for an irish pub, usually I don't eat the food, so I wouldn't like to comment on that,but the bartenders are excellent.

This is our favorite local hangout. We love the outdoor patio in the nicer weather - although the smoking can get bad and beware it is not well shaded if you are there during sundown you need a hat/sunglasses. I've only had 1 entree I didn't love- a special pork meal that was only Eh as opposed to the usual - YUM! The chips are great, good burgers and bar pies, yummy mahi mahi sandwich and great "So Good Brownie Sundae" - although I think its shrunk since i last had it...

PS. It can get very loud inside, especially on nights with performers or game nights.

A great place with good food. Try the fried pickles and home made potato chips. Yum. Lots of great salads as well as good "pub grub".

I always enjoy McDonagh's for a drink and a snack. I love the fresh popcorn on the bar. During my last visit, I had the pub pretzels. The three dipping sauces were tasty, and I liked the variety! They also have excellent sweet potato fries.

If and when you are ever in Keyport take a swing by. The decor is pretty cool on the dining side - looks like your walking along a street with storefronts. The bar depending on the day is either packed or comfortable. You certainly have your local regulars and then those who are swinging in for a pint. The food is generally pretty good. The grilled shrimp over salad is very good. The wings are typical. The corned beef wrap is very good - which you would hope being an Irish pub. Fried pickles are a must. During the warmer months they do have outside dining - which is great! So if you are looking for a pint and some decent pub food - I would recommend.
