A true pub! Homemade, delicious food - fresh and wonderful. Home baked cake to die for! You're one of family at McNally's. Great food, drink and prices! Afterward, have a nice stroll in heavenly, Chestnut Hill.

Stopped in during lunchtime at this small pub and eatery. There are about a dozen bar seats, and we (my fiance and I), were fortunate to grab up two for ourselves. The steaks are on the high-end of prices, but also larger than most sandwiches...More
