I'm not a beer person, nor am I a outside frat bar type of person.
I don't know if it was the weather or the fun people around but this place was pretty awesome.

There is an interesting crowd of people ranging from grown up frat boys to business men to weed smoking hippies. It seemed to need more seating. But above all I enjoyed it and will come back.\r

I adored the amazing BLUEBERRY BEER! This was my first encounter with this tasteful beauty. I loved the fresh blueberries that reside on the bottom.

I like MacDinton's... a lot. It is easily my goto bar in the SoHo area. The have to the $10 bottom-less cup, all you can drink special and it certainly draws in a wide range of people.

There are many areas inside and out to hang out; not

This place gets 5 stars for the 10 dollar all you can drink happy hour from 6-8pm on Fridays. By the time that's over, the place is irreparably crowded and it's time to go eat some dinner and chill out.The beer selection is perfect,

This place is a great bar, and they even have some good food to boot! The crowd is 21 to 35 year olds for the most part, with a peppering of some older folks to keep it interesting. Great Thursday $10 all-you-can-drink special from 6-8pm

There's Irish Breakfast and a few great bartenders. I love the outside bar very roomy during week. Weekends very crowded and chocked full of square jawed busy shirted dudes with tiny straws in their drinks and pockets. Overall good vibe.

Went there in 2006 and didn't seem to be a bad place, but revisited again in 2009, what a dissapointment. Food & beer is a let down. The staff are bad mannered and rough. I guess theres a recession and maybe they find it hard to get good

Pros: Errr, none!

Cons: College kids, rough servers.

Love Mac Dinton's on any night, but especially Friday evenings after work! A great place to hang out, but can definitely get very crowded. Great outdoor area. Several bar areas so waiting for a drink is never too long. Live music. Just be careful where you park- if you don't use their valet parking you have to find street parking- don't get towed!

In Tampa for a convention, several of us did the crawl of Irish bars. Mac Dinton's has valet parking (we DID have a designated driver.) It's a fun place and I had a meal of Bangers and Mash, as good as my Aunt Molly used to make. My companions tried the Shepherd's Pie and pronounced it "wonderful." Entrees in the $10 - $15 range. Appetizers are the usual pub food, so skip them and go straight for the authentic main courses.

This is NOT an Irish Pub. It is a beat up College bar with the stench of regurgitated beer that may - in the past - have been a Pub. My bangers were microwaved sausages. The guiness, must have come out of a bottle, and old one. Ugh.. I

I know it near Saint Patricks day and therefore, I don't expect the same quality from any Irish Pub as far as their drink or food is concerned due to the large amount of business that is gererated at this time of year. But for a Sunday

Pros: interior and their mashed potatoes

So many people seem to love this place and it definately has its potential but it just seems like management always seems to make the wrong choices when it comes to this bar. I don't think I will go back there for a while...but I guess if you don't ever need to deal with management then it can be ok.
