My wife and I and another couple ate there 1/28/17, and just loved it. Food was excellent, service was outstanding, and the establishment was impeccably clean.

Such a gem right near the Erie Canal. The owner and staff make this a truly welcoming place. Everything tastes wonderful ( almost better than Mom's!). The cozy atmosphere and varied selection will beckon you back time and again..

My family and I have eaten here several times. The lobster mac and cheese is my favorite and so are the huge baked potatoes. Staff is wonderful as well.

Had a coupon so we ventured over here for dinner. French onion soup was again outstanding, and our burgers had that wonderful grilled flavor. Well-done fries topped off the meal. Wish we had room for desserts -- they looked amazing!

McArdle's is one of our favorite neighborhood pubs. It has high-backed booths so the atmosphere feels private and cozy. The menu is diverse and the food is always on-point delicious. Tip: if you want a basket of bread, ask for it since they no longer automatically bring it. We love the fish frys, which are available every day. I often... More

Great service, good menu selections-from sandwiches to full entrees. Reasonably priced. I meet friends here at least monthly - and have for years. Cozy booths for conversation. Be sure to save room for dessert - especially the homemade pies from the Holy Childhood- pecan, apple-rhubarb and blackberry are great with a scoop of ice cream.
