This place gets it right. Great atmosphere. Great drinks. And the food is 5-star restaurant level food. Best seafood I've ever had. I really don't go here enough. Always love heading down Germantown in the fall and stopping by.

I've been to this establishment a few times I was never disappointed. It's a nice bar with a "neighborhood feel". The food was excellent, drinks were in abundance, service and wait staff were very personal and professional! Keep up the good work, food comes highly recommended. I personal recommend the "fish and chips" and any of the beers (they have... More

When we are working at the Lutheran seminary in Philadelphia we must have lunch at McMenamins. The ale is also a must accompaniment. But beware the dessert! It is humongous and decadent not to mention delicious

The crowd is always friendly; the seating in back is limited and opens up outside in good weather. Often lunch time sees the bar in front empty and the seating out back filled. THE FOOD IS ALWAYS A LEVEL ABOVE THE COMPETITION and their specials often-time rival the four & five-star restaurants in Center City at half the price. Although... More

What else is there to say? A solid choice for value dining in Mount Airy. Atmosphere is old-time dive bar. Not a place for a sophisticated night out but an excellent choice for good food on a budget. Fish and Chips are great. PS There is a free city parking lot behind the building next door.

The food at McMenamin's makes me rethink my previous five star reviews. This food was so fresh and delicious a true standout. The vegetarian chili was divine. Excellent service and diverse drinking menu. Outdoor seating was perfect for an afternoon lunch.

Has to be the best burger ever. Very tasty, huge and came with whatever you want on top. Lots of fries too, their famous fries. We also had Irish Beef Stew, Frogs Legs, Poppers, fish and chips and beer. They have a huge selection of craft beer. The place is crowded and very busy. Parking is a problem, they don't... More

McMenamin's Tavern always good food, sports, drinks, try the ceaser salad and wings. Always a pleasure to walk in those swinging doors. Keep up the great work in CHESTNUT HILL.

We've been here a couple of times for a drink. It's a typical Irish bar - lots of people, lots of beer and lots of noise! Two drinks are enough for us but its fun to come to!
