Thatcher McGhee's is a fairly decent place depending on your waiter makes or breaks the experience. We have sat back by the bar in a booth at off times which I enjoyed but when we had to sit there during peak times it wasn't nearly as good couldn't hear each other talking because of the volume of the noise.

Wife and I went out and had a few drinks and a bite to eat before seeing a local band. The drinks were great. The chicken sandwich was great and burger cooked perfect. We will be back. In side is very cool. You feel like your eating bangers and mash in someone else's house ..

My husband had a burger which he said was delicious, I had the corned beef and was able to have half sandwich for lunch special. Atmosphere is very homey and staff friendly and helpful as needed. Great selection of food to choose from.

I loved the look of this place as I drove by - like it was dropped into Denville NJ from Ireland! Enjoyable atmosphere of an Irish Pub with friendly service, great entertainment and well made drinks! They have separate Irish cottage rooms (think Quiet Man) for dining - can't comment on food as I did not partake. Slainte!

Have even here three times. Twice for lunch, once for dinner. Very popular local pub experience. Dinner on the weekends very busy. Lunch is easy to get a table. Food is good, but not exceptional. Good place to meet friends for a long lunch.

Great atmosphere and pub food. Burgers are especially good, but also love the shepard's pie. Gets really loud in the bar area and it's hard to talk, but fun when there's a good band playing.

Description
Measure a roof’s worth by the quality of its thatch;A friendship by the strength of its hands;A love by the size of its heart;And a family by the depth of its loyalty.Thatch can be defined as any vegetation used to roof a structure. The vegetation is gathered, bundled and secured to the framework on top of a building. Thatch functions both as a shingle and underlayment; very rarely is there anything beyond simple framework between the thatch and the inside of the structure.European thatch dates back to before the Middle Ages, when the first small, permanent villages were established. Today, thatch is generally acknowledged for its visual appeal and as a way to add a historic or whimsical touch to a home. While it does impart a storybook quality to many structures, thatch also retains practical aspects of its past.Designed with a traditional thatched roof reminiscent of old Irish homes, Thatcher McGhee’s first opened its doors in Pompton Lakes, NJ in 2006 and raised a new roof in Denville, NJ in 2011. An eclectic blend of new and old, Thatcher’s is a place for friends to catch up, families to share a meal and celebrations to be had. Whether you’re enjoying a Taste of Ireland in the comfort of our traditional thatched roof Irish cottage, or some American fare in the bar or dining room, we take pride in the privilege to be part of your lives.If this is your first visit or you’re a regular part of our shenanigans, we invite you to create new memories with us while having a comforting meal or a refreshing pint!Our newest location, located at 53 Broadway in Denville Thatcher McGhee’s is Northern New Jersey’s newest Irish Pub & Eatery.
