We visited this place with friends who had been before and said it was excellent. Ordered the halibut and the BBQ meatloaf. Both very good. Server was friendly and very attentive.

Step into Ireland as you enter the doors, enjoy a delicious meal, and feel like a friend with the service you receive! Everything I have ordered here has knocked my socks off but I especially love the fish and chips...followed by the mud pie which takes some coercing to share even though it looks like it could feed an army....

Mac Cool's is a great place for a date or family, I have done both! I love the ribs! I first tried them on the "Taste of 25th" several years ago, and they have never disappointed me since!

The food variety is fantastic and it makes you want to come back as there are so many delicious options. I had the Chicken Pot Pie that was wonderful, it comes... More

British/Irish cuisine. From broiled lamb to Irish stew. Great outdoor patio area. Not a franchise.... local owner. Friendly atmosphere. Within walking distance to many hotels in the Layton area. Nice place.

Ate there with a group of friends and we all really enjoyed it. Have not been back but that is not a reflection on the restaurant. Will likely return soon.
