We had a fabulous Fish Fry on Friday night for dinner. Also some very light and tasty cod cakes. Generous portions. Great service. Bartender was attentive and helpful. We are looking forward to Irish breakfast coming soon in mid-November!

This is a great place for lunch. They have big wooden booths which helps to make conversation easier. The food is very good and service is always excellent. Prices have increased in recent months. I was there with two older adults, and access is good, as there are no stairs and the parking lot is right outside. It's probably best... More

Visiting Fairport and looking for a place not visited before. Lunch was ok but quiche was nuked and tougher than nails. Meatloaf special very good, soup very good. Somewhat disappointed in waitress response to suggestion that quiche not be nuked so long, "ok". Edible portion of dish about 20%. Will go back for another try, wish more irish dishes on... More

Thank you so much for leaving a review. You are correct on that Quiche, we tried something new, making it with a puff pastry crust. Unfortunateley it does not heat so well so we went back to making a traditional crust. We will be starting a Sunday Brunch in December and will have some traditional Irish items on that menu....

Personal service and very good prices for excellent food! A very intimate setting with wood paneled booths which make you feel like you're in a private dining area. The food is very good. Call ahead and see what the specials are. One night it's a pasta buffet, other nights feature prime rib or a fish fry. Use the coupon from... More

McCardle's is one of our favorite places to eat in Fairport. The fish fry on Fridays is great. The atmosphere is very friendly.

Larger tables with benches to spread out and enjoy. I enjoy the hospitality of the owner who often stops by to make sure everything is great. Good food in casual atmosphere...

We have eaten here twice in the last week and we were very satisfied. The staff is very attentive and friendly. The food was excellent and attractively prepared. I had a cobb salad and French onion soup on our first visit and my husband had the pot roast with a side salad. The roast came with mashed potatoes and a... More

We used to eat here frequently but it had been quite awhile since our last visit because the quality had gone down. I had chicken and my husband had a burger that were pretty good...probably a bit better than the last time. We sat outside but it's pretty close to a busy road. Service was decent.

Stopped for dinner the other day. I had the salmon special and my wife had the Chicken French entree'. Both were very tasty and prepared well. I appreciate when the chef removes the skin from the fish and doesn't leave it for me to find under the served fillet. Fish was very fresh , baked potato was ok, but rather... More
