Been coming here for years and love this place. Great food and friendly staff. Great place to watch soccer as the crowd gets really into the games! Food is good and a great pint of Guinness. Well worth the visit for a sporting event.

Went on a Thursday night and it was packed. They had $1 draft and they were pouring barrels of those. This is a great atmosphere and people kept coming.

MacDinton's is a Tampa staple. Whether meeting friends or drinking alone, MacDinton's Irish Pub is always filled with smiling faces and cold beer. Irish Beer on draft!
