As much as I would like to love a small local steakhouse with character I can't give this place a top rating. It is only open three or four days a week, that is OK but we have been there on a cold winter day when it was too cold to be comfortable in the dining room. I have had... More

Back in town visiting family and my parents took me here. They'd been in in the last couple months and been pleasantly surprised. We all got steaks and were not disappointed. All the staff was very friendly and attentive. Glad Clinton has this, sorry I didn't eat here more growing up!

Had not been there in years and the place was still the same....old décor. Six O'clock on a Thursday night and we were the only ones there. As we are leaving four more people came in. Waitress was pleasant but food disappointing and portions too large.

Our baked potato was "hot" the salad was ok the waitress good but couldn't do anything about our steaks. One... More

I don;t live in the area, and have not been to McKinley Street Taverne for many years. Which is too bad, because it is a very enjoyable place to go. The atmosphere is unique, and also very comfortable and down-to-earth, with very pleasant staff. I enjoyed everything about my meal, but I want to focus on the fried catfish. We... More

I found this place using trip advisor and overall it was a good place to eat. The place reminds me of an old house converted into a restaurant. I sat at the bar in the back of the place to eat dinner. The staff was great and very prompt. Even the other staff that was not serving me made sure... More

We come here at least once a week. The staff is friendly and willing to make right your order. There is something for everyone. The salad with grilled chicken as well as the Alfredo meals are plentiful. The soups are great. The peel and eat shrimp dinner is not as messy as most. They have been split already with very...

Went here on a recommendation. The steak and prime rib was out of this world. Great flavor. Thoroughly enjoyed this place and would recommend it to anyone who likes meat.
