The palce is pretty big, with the hueg room looking oike a sports bar and the small room looking ike a irish bar. The service was not very good to getd rinsk to begin with. My Guiness was one pour, which is a no-no and the drinskw ere uber-expensive.

We met up with a group to take the ghost pub crawl and was amazed at the place. Great brew and grilled scallops with bacon. Definitely will spend more time the next time we go to Savannah Georgia again!

What a great find!! We wanted to get a bite before we went to the Savannah Theater and This was close. Well...the food was great and the place just felt so comfortable and friendly. Will definitely go there again AND get the batter fried shrimp. It is the best!

I had buffalo chicken fingers, they were great! We had stopped here as our bathroom break the night before on our haunted walking tour so when we were out and about we stopped for lunch.

Stopped by on my own because of reviews I had seen in TripAdvisor. Reviews were right! Good selection of domestic and imported beer. Found one I liked that I had never tried. It's now on my top 10 list of beers I like. Had fried oyster basket that was surprisingly good. Bar atmosphere was good, with TV's showing a variety... More

Third visit to McDonough's, it is what it is and its ain't what it ain't. Great beer and adult beverage selection for drinking. Karaoke hot spot providing some great and at times funny entertainment. Better yet check them out for breakfast as this is a place that won't break the bank for simple but really good comfort food for the... More

Came in to the bar not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. The prices for drinks were decent. Bud light cans were $4.00 and rail mixed drinks were $6.00. Our waitress was super sweet, the mixed drinks were strong but we bought their last bud light. (We each had one.) It was karaoke night and all started well. Everyone was... More

Went there to have a ribeye was told they didn't have a ribeye. The hell of a steak was so thin it was almost like you were eating leather. The mac and cheese was actually Kraft dinner with cheese on top. Very disappointing and also they were out of Jack Daniels. Would not recommend for food or drink to anyone.
