We enjoyed a great lunch at Patrick McGovern's Pub. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. My coffee mug was never empty. The food was tasty and reasonable priced. Portions are very generous. Fun place.

The hot turkey is really delicious - just like Mom used to make. Everything we’ve tried here has been delicious. The service can be hit or miss, but the food makes up for any wait.

Friend and I had dinner here. I had the meatloaf and he had a gyro. I also had the soup of the day - turkey noodle- based on server recommendation. Soup was ok but similar to something out of a can. Meatloaf was bland but...More
