MacCool's is our go to family gathering spot. We love the huge round table, the Irish sayings, the wonderfully informed help, and the ever present owner/manager. We love the food. The salmon is the best we've ever had - seriously, the Buffalo Shepard's Pie is amazing. The kids get burgers there, and they are always a hit. The servers know... More

Stopped in MacCools on a Monday evening on a work trip. It was a little bit slow (probably due to Monday night), but the service, atmosphere and food was great. Beer was decent (I'm from Michigan so my expectations are high in this regard ; ). They also have an indoor shuffle board table that some friends and I had... More

My husband and I have enjoyed Mac Cools mainly as a location of great beer. They have a couple of menu items I prefer and would highly recommend their Irish Shepherds Pie, it is truly a comfort food. They also have a hamburger with pastrami on it that is quite good. Have been disappointed in the fish and chips...fish seems... More

We showed up on an off night with a ton of people and they did an outstanding job of making us all feel like we were their most important guests

I read the reviews and had mixed feelings about going there. I was by myself and got seated in the back at a long table. There were a few others at the table. No big deal. I had the salmon it was good. The service was good. Not a bad place and I would come back and try something else.... More

We were on motorcycles travelling in the east Salt Lake City area. We stopped in the shopping centre and spotted the Mac Cools. It was very inviting and we had good food and great cool beers. Service was very good except they seen we were bikers and put us away from the other guests. We are not that kind of... More

I really wanna like MacCools. The beer selection is good, the food is good, but the bar setting is lacking. The chairs are terrible. Really low backs and press right on your spine. Mentioned this to the large bald dude (manager (ish)) and got no response. I travel here frequently and eat alone. MacCools just doesn't have a fun vibe,... More

I love Irish food so thought we'd give this a try. Atmosphere was lacking in Irish charm, but the menu had traditional Irish fare at a reasonable price. The wine selection was limited and servings were small. The fish and chips were excellent, as was the trout. The hit of the evening was the trout with root vegetables. It was... More
