We’ve been Tuesday night (pub run) regulars for years now. Tonight we had the worst meal and worst service ever. My wife ordered what the waitress promoted as a “good” burger. BIG mistake! Ordered medium it came out super well done, almost inedible. She figured...More

I always wish we would know about these places before we sit down and wait so we aren't wasting our time. We walked in and were given menus but nobody came to get our order, people came in after us and they were served immediately....More

After a long day sitting in conference, walking from the Marriott to McGinleys was the best way to end the day. The Shepherds Pie was perfect and it felt like I was back in my mom's house at the kitchen table eating comfort food. Since...More

Had heard numerous people say eat at McGinleys so we did. Yuck. had fish and chips (frozen battered fish) not as good as in the lower 48, and the stew. Couldn't even finish the stew as it had some kind of hot pepper in it...More

And I don't even drink, but I love the food. Had a chicken pot pie and my husband had a beef stew. Great service too. Was very happy we chose to go there. Nothing fancy but darn good and pretty good for the money too.

Although the physical space lacks the ambience of a true Irish-style pub, we enjoyed the food and drink. The staff was friendly and the prices were reasonable, for Alaska. A nice downtown casual option.

I had tomato red pepper soup - super delicious! Friend had beer cheese soup- she said it was delicious too. I had beef dip - little disappointed as it was not made with fresh roast beef. Not the same when made with processed roast beef....More

Wife had the rueben which she said was the best she ever had. I had the chicken pot pie which had the flakiest crust I ever tasted. It needed a little salt but was very good. Service was great, not at all crowded.

Enjoyed my first pint of Guiness in Alaska. Service was prompt with a smile from the waitress. The Stew was hot and tasty. Would return if I pass this eat again.
