This place is usually great but after my encounter with their food I have to change my mind. The burgers were uneatable. Disgusting! But most of the times it's pretty good

I had a side salad which was very good and I also had a Mediterranean pasta dish which was good. My boyfriend had a Cobb salad with chicken. The salad itself was very good however the chicken was very, very dry. We liked the fact, as seniors, that they were many TVs with sports on but they did not have... More

I tried the turkey burger and it was not chewy or pasty like some but an honest burger with taste. Fries not memorable.

stopped for a quick lunch but found the pub food that's nothing special and the order was wrong when it arrived at the table. Ordered a cheese quesadilla and it came with chicken. The children's wings was served in a cardboard car with the fries under the wings which made them soggy. Our service was terrible and the restaurant wasn't... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Buffalo chicken salad very good - very large portion. Quick service. Server could have been more attentive. Very loud, noisy atmosphere. Parking is extremely challenging.

McGillicuddy's is a good place to watch a game and have a beer. The food tends to fluctuate in quality, but the service is usually very good. It can get loud and crowded on game days, but the crowd is fun and friendly. One family-friendly perk they have is a large treasure chest with new packaged toys. Each child can... More

Great place for family, wings were very good. Hamburger is probably the best one I've had in a long time. Hostess brought treasure box over for the kids to pick a toy. Only complaint I had was a boneless buffalo wings didn't taste great, to much breading. Waitress was very friendly, very happy with our meal overall.

We would give this place zero stars if we could. We were here for a wedding. The whole wedding party went out. One, they don't like people out of state. The bouncer started lecturing us on CT license laws, and how our IDs were not valid. He then started interrogating us on our license information. After that ordeal, further down... More

On the positive side, the restaurant was clean and light. The food was ok. The wait staff was pleasant but incompetent. It took more than 1/2 hour to get our food, after waiting some time to order. No one ever came back to tell us why the delay, which would have been appreciated. And, then when my order arrived, it... More
