Great food with an always enjoyable waitress, Mikhela.
Wonderful time. Great food. Great service. We would return
Lovely pub in a Lancaster County small town. Definitely worth a visit.
Our waitress and wait staff were really attentive.
We go there often and always find good service and value for our visit.
Service was excellent. Nice ambiance.
First visit and was pleasantly surprised.
Hidden gem in Marietta. Would go back again.
Incredible good - near historic atmosphere with tons of ambience. One of the best restaurants in Central Pennsylvania!
Overall, the service was fabulous! The food was delivered promptly and the food was some of the best Irish pub food I ever had! Thank you so much for the food and service! I will be back!
Food was tremendous. I enjoyed beef tips with Guinness gravy. Salad was exceptional and back room was absolutely amazing
Never disappointed! Food is always very good and service personable
Even on a very busy night with a reservation it was an amazing experience. The service was extremely fast and the food was great. A band was playing and it was overall a perfect night out. Highly recommended!
Fire roasted tomato bisque excellent! Hubby had ahi tuna melt. I tasted. Excellent. I had the tenderloin tips. Good but I found the Guinness gravy to be overpowering Next time I’d get the ahi tuna!
McCleary's very accommodating. I had to push reservation later and they held my table. Food outstanding, especially the Shepherd's Pie!! They sat us outback in patio room. Very, very nice relaxing lunch. Highly recommend!!
McCleary’s is one of our go-to restaurants for a casual night out. Great service and consistently delicious food!
Steve was super as usual and everything ordered from appetizers and drinks to main course was fabulous. The associate staff was very attentive to making sure any unnecessary dishes were cleared from the table without being asked. Kudos to the entire team!
This was our first visit, and we loved it. We will be back.
Excellent choices of food, with friendly, timely service.
Excellent experience for first time eating a Friday night dinner. We were seated in the bar where The Friday after work crowd were enjoying their beers. It was very loud until the $1/pint hours were up; then everyone left and it became much easier to talk. Young lady who served us knew the menu very well; cordial; helpful snd attentive. Meal was scrumptious.
First timers. Enjoyed it so much that it will go in my top 5 places to eat.
We were seated promptly at our reservation time, were waited on almost immediately by a friendly waitress, were served what we ordered in a reasonable amount of time, and the prices were very fair for what we ordered. this is not "fine" dining, but everything about it clicked. What's not to like?
The portion for the chicken pot pie was very small and the portion for the tips was small. The ease of making reservations was great.We enjoy eating out there in the patio area. Most times we are very pleased with the food and service.
My Pub Steak was delicious and done medium well, just as I asked, and the fries were awesome. My husband enjoyed the fish and chips - especially the fries!
It was a beautiful evening and fairly warm - we were hoping to enjoy the outdoors but their outdoor seating had been turned into indoor seating, which was pretty disappointing. It still has very cool-looking and casual ambience/vibe, just not what we were hoping for that evening.
Request inside booth but was seated on the patio.
Food and music were great !!
I felt rushed after we were finish eating - everyone kept coming by and asking if they could take this or take that. And when the check came and we paid the waitress asked if she could bring change - I’m sorry that is rude - I was in the business for 40 years and you always bring change back you don’t ask - you need to allow the customers say that’s yours - or keep the change - you don’t ask someone if they need change.
From now on I will sit at the bar and eat as the service there is far superior.
Blown away by the food … best quality and overall in Lancaster County by far. Neat atmosphere and great service. Top notch all the way around!
The staff is the best. Always friendly and helpful. My only complaint is that I got the garlic/Parm wings and there was very little garlic. Still tasty, but I wanted that garlic punch. If I ever get them again I'll ask for more of that.
Great experience as usual at McCleary’s! Our waitress, Michelle, was very attentive & kind! We highly recommend McCleary’s!
The service was excellent! My husband had the chicken pot pie…he said it was delicious. It arrived steamy hot, just as he likes it. I ordered the burger, medium. It was closer to well done. OK not a problem. I expected better. The burger was very “heavy “. The roll was stale & not toasted. I cut it in half & ate most of the half. My husband ate the other half, the pickle….delicious he said! The French fries were great, nice & crispy. Now it’s a Pub. That being said, it is very dark & noisy inside. We choose to eat “outside “. It’s not really outside….enclosed room surrounded with windows. So a little brighter. The furniture was dated & worn. The room could use a good dusting & cleaning. I wish I could remember the server’s name, she was great!
The food is always great and really good beer selection. Get the wings.
Perfect place for good food, great staff and ambience. All occasions can be celebrated here.
Love the atmosphere at McCleary‘s and they’ve got a very good selection of beer. And they could even make a pretty good martini too. The food ranges in quality but the spicy Thai chicken wings are out of this world and should not be missed.
Very good to food excellent service
Great service in a quaint pub.
Good food and on tap beers. They need some waiters right now - help needed sign is posted. Great place to hang out with friends or family.
Everything was delicious. Had rib eye steak special done to perfection. Had fish and chips....beat ever eaten!! Prices were reasonable for the quality of food! Definitely returning soon!
The food was good, table location was not. Asked for another table, was denied. Don't sit out front at a table in the bar area, foot traffic and noise. Service was fair, waitress took 3 times to get our checks correct and that was AFTER charging the wrong dinners on each of our cards ! Took 3 days but it finally got straightened out.
We'll go back because we had good experiences other times we were there, just a bad night this time.
