We're not able to eat outside or inside unless we ate at the bar. Plenty of tables were open but they said there was a private party. Did not like that at all. Needed to be a sign on the door saying that. We definitely did not want to eat at the bar. Very, very disappointing. Made me think twice... More

Tough to beat for sandwiches and onion rings. Great Fried Chicken, a must have. Interesting location, attached to bowling alley.

I stopped in for lunch with my adult daughter and we were quite pleased. We both enjoy a pub atmosphere and this was a pleasant one. We each ordered separate lunches and then split then so we could sample all the flavors. For the Rueben we tried the option of using cole slaw instead of sauerkraut and it was delicious.... More

Still great fried chicken they also have an excellent Cobb salad with real fresh turkey and roast beef. Good hot roast beef sandwiches and chicken parmesan also but if you like fried chicken its exceptional here.

Found this location as a result of recommendation from a friend. You can access it from the street but it can also be accessed from the blow LI game alley. You can watch people bowling while you are eating through the windows in the pub. Expected it to have Irish pub food but was taken aback when the only Irish... More

McCall's is attached to the bowling alley (a great place). It is a pub with great entertainment and a dance floor. The prices are reasonable, service good, and a great variety of food. Would recommend for food and entertainment!

Just off the bowling alley in Spanish Springs, McCalls is a great pub. Reasonable pricing and a great menu, they have the best fried chicken I have ever tasted. Their Beef on Wek is a great sandwich as well. Free lunch on your birthday and a mug club for a free brew once a month. Give it a try!

Still the best fried chicken in the Villages. You get 1/2 chicken and two sides. Also a dinner roll. You can always count on the consistency of the meal. Cold beer or wine. Plenty of seating inside but also plenty of tables outside. Service is excellent and friendly.

This was out second visit to Mc Calls. It's crowded at times, some nites there is inside entertainment and a packed bar. We ate outside and were served drinks promptly. Their specialty is fried chicken and it is very good and it does say it needs extra cooking time. Each time we have ordered it we waited nearly 45 minutes... More

Restaurant is connected to the bowling alley so it is a bit noisy but the food and service were both good.
