The staff was very friendly. I was drinking whisky on the rocks so I wasn't asking for anything too challenging. The one thing that stuck out to me though was that the whole place smelled a little funny...like mildewy mop.

I am appalled by the way I was treated at this place last night. The owner was extremely rude and made me feel so unwelcome. A disgrace to Irish people. What goes around comes around.

Great hamburgers, the do also have great french fries. We have taken friends here while they were in town and they were hooked. The pub has a dart board and pool table.

Some of the best pub food I've come across. Great fish & chips. In fact everything on the menu is consistently yummy. Unpretentious atmosphere. Very good bartenders. The only thing that keeps me from giving the place 5 stars is that service at the tables can, on occasion, be mediocre. I usually eat at the bar.

Update 4/20/2010: Downgrading a star due to the food going a little downhill. Menu is tired and the food is just ok now, and it's not cheap for a pub/restaurant. Still a great place to hang for soccer, rugby, and sports in general. Overall, still recommended.

Pros: Decent food, Very Good Bartenders, Unpretentious atmosphere

Cons: Table service can be spotty; menu getting tired

I have been in this neighborhood for a while, and McCormack's is "big time". The food there is very good, leaps and bounds better than your typical bar menu. I have never had a bad dinner there and I cant get enough of the Cajun Chicken salad for lunch. The staff there is incredible and they really go out of the way for you to feel comfortable.

Pros: friendly atmosphere, excellent staff and food

Cons: too crowded to get in on St. Patty's day

.

It get's really crowded on St. Pat's, but this place really is a great find. The bartenders are friendly and seem to know everyone in the place. The food really is first rate as far as Pubs go. Make every effort to visit if you're in the area.

I love this place and I have hesitated to write a review for that reason- I do not want it to get too crowded. After reading the other reviews, however I feel that I must. Owen and Paul, behind the bar, are two of the best guys. The first visit they were nice and talkative. By the second visit they knew my name and greet me and my friends with a big smile and hello every time. The food is great and the menu is larger than you would guess at first glance of the bar. If you are looking for a pub this is the place.

Pros: Great bartenders, real sports, Pimms!

I think the problems people have found at McCormack's is not bad servers, but over-worked servers. They generally don't have enough people working. When it's not too busy, they're very pleasant and proactive. However, I find that when the place fills up, the one or two who are there get very harried and very taxed.

Unlike most wine-oriented restaurants, McCormack's diners send these girls to the bar constantly looking for more drinks, which really puts a strain on these girls in addition to their regular duties. Also, I don't remember seeing a whole lot of busboys either.

That being said, the food is really just barfood, although they have a lot of specials so you have some variety. Decor is OK, kinda comfortable.

I couldn't believe someone else rated the staff as a let-down. Michael is at the bar and he's absolutely wonderful! Everyone that works there is from Ireland, and you really feel you're there. There's nothing better than their fries and a pint of Guiness...please check it out!

This local Irish favorite boasts solid basic pub fare and a page full of daily special, friendly Irish staff and management, and a great selections of stouts, ales, beers and mixed drinks. The large bar is great for gathering with friends to watch sports (most major soccer, football and rugby matches can be seen here) and the restaurant area is conveniently separated from the bar area to allow for a comfortable, relatively quiet meal. The weekend brunch offers your selection of omelets, corn beef hash & eggs, Eggs Benedict, a hearty Irish Breakfast and other specialties, along with coffee and two drinks all for about $10. The juke box features a good selection of pop CDs along with plenty of Irish standards. Check it out. Its worth an evening at least.

Pros: Good value, Friendly, Comfortable

A nice bar with good food and proper sports. Unfortunatley my four or so visits have been spoiled by the rude staff twice. Once the waitress cursed our table for not tipping enough after we had waited an hour to order and another half an hour just to get a drink, on top of this I had to find my own cutlery... she was lucky to get any tip. The other time we were over charged by the waiter who refused to accept his error even though we had been charged for 5 mains, and there was only 4 of us. The only reasons I return is for the rugby and the cooked english breakfast.

Our four were seated promptly at the back on a busy Friday night, around 8:45pm. We told the waitress a few more were coming and ordered drinks. Two more arrived, but the waitress never returned! We kindly asked the manager to get her when he checked on another table, and he disappeared too. An HOUR after we arrived, our birthday party was now hungry, thirsty, angry, and late for our comedy show. We hunted the waitress to at least pay for the drinks. She complained to us and again to her manager that wed dirtied the dishes and left without ordering anything. I told her that for us to dirty the dishes, shed have needed to take our order.
