My wife and I came here after our birthday dinner for a cold pint and were thrilled to find out that a "pickup band" was playing traditional Irish music! What a treat! We were told by the wait staff that the band was a hodge podge of musicians that had not necessarily played together before. They were fantastic and very... More

The place is just north of the ABush Brewery and a brief drive. The garden seating was nice with plenty of vegitation. The lunch menu had a good selection and variety for most tastes.

I ordered the beef medallions meal last week at the O'Fallon location. The waitress, while taking our order, didn't even look at us. She was looking around, which made us feel like she wasn't paying attention. When the food came, my steak was supposed to be medium well. While the one medallion was, the other was cooked medium rare and... More

We stopped by for drinks after dinner next door. The live Irish music was excellent! While the band took a break, we ventured out to the beautiful patio. Really fun place!

Spent an evening here after a conference, and had a great time; band played traditional irish and rock songs we could sing along to and the crowd wasn't shy about dancing. The bartender stole my partially-finished drink once; that's my only complaint!

A fun place with traditional Irish favorites. Food was really good and place got busy fast on a Friday. They do take reservations for bigger parties. Outside area, although it was raining when I was there.

We had read an article from Feast Magazine that claimed McGurk's was one of the top 12 patios in St. Louis, MO, we just so happened to be in the area on a beautiful spring day and McGurk's did not disappoint! We ordered the spinach artichoke toasted ravioli and homemade chips. Both were delicious and nice portion sizes. There are... More

First time at McGurk's was for the brunch and Tionol - Irish music jam sessions. Wonderful. A bargain! Buffet was diverse, well prepared, classy, and plentiful without being fussy. A beverage was included. Outside courtyard is charming. Multiple bars inside and out. Musicians were tucked in corners and we moved from one group to the next. Great time! We will... More
