The location is okay it's near the water. But the food was horrible! The lobster roll taste like it just came out from the can and not fresh tasting. The bread tasted stale. Not coming back here again. Not worth the money.

Have been to McKinley's twice and am sure to make it a few more times this summer. The food is good, the service is really good. It's a 'cheers' type of ambiance.

We stopped here after dinner for drinks and just ordered a few beers. Didn't have anything to eat. The place was quite crowded but the bar and wait staff were attentive even though they were running around a bit crazy. Great beers on tap and an old Irish pub feel. Will definitely go back and try some of the grub!

Loud, worn, and popular on a Saturday night. The crowd had a good spirit. Staff was friendly and attentive. The lobster roll was pricey for the quality. Sufficient loster but mostly the leg meat. Chicken calabrese sandwich was vert good. The house made potato chips were great. Perfect. I would just order thise and a Smithwick's next time.

It was 5:00 on a Friday afternoon, and the plane wasn't due to arrive until 9:00. We decided to have a beer at a bar, but I wanted a bar that feels like what you read about in sailor books: One by the water, dark, where the sailors can walk right in from the boats and the bartender can give...

Hidden little treasure on the water. This place looks like it is part of the marina, and may deter people from going, but you must try it if in the area. It is a pub/ bar, so it certainly has that atmosphere -- nothing fancy. The service was great, very attentive bar staff. Food was great. Prices reasonable. We had... More

Went on a Sunday night, so relatively quiet. The food was good, the meals huge, and, for me, this was the first time trying stuffies. Really, really, good. As a craft beer drinker they had a couple decent ones on tap but not a huge range. The only negative was the music..very throw back to the 80's. Some of us... More

IBased on these reviews my old college roommate and and I headed to this place. Quiet, good service, basic menu. I ordered a hamburger medium rare with cheese bacon and fries. So this isnt complicated The small hamburg was as dried as a hockey puck, the bun was toasted to a crisp that suggested it was stale. The fries were... More

When all the other restaurants on water street close, this is where the servers go. Young drunk crowd - usually loud and packed, especially in the summer. They've got an outside area but it's full of smokers. Only go here when you're already drunk. I've never been here during the day so I've never eaten but I can't imagine the... More
