This place is awesome. Perfect spot for a chill night of drinks with friends. Their specials are really worth trying too!

- James G., Yelp (5 Stars)

Outstanding food and really good service. We had burgers and the Irish Curry. The Irish Curry was awesome! It was flavorful and full of spice, just enough...

- Jeremy W., Yelp (5 Stars)

Great pub food, wings are very flavoursome! HIMYM memorabilia all over the walls, it truly has a Mclarens feel to it.

- Brad M., Yelp (5 Stars)

McGees was great! The drinks were great, the curly fry basket was top notch, and the bartenders were more than helpful, they were friendly too.

- Ted M., Yelp (5 Stars)

Great place, friendly staff and their not so overpriced. Mcgees is always our first destination when we're in town!
