    Dirty, smoke filled, cramped. Cobwebs everywhere, lacks ventilation. I was afraid to try the food but the Guinness was ok.

    PLANK of intl beer samples! Tiny NY sz deli kitchen delivers surprising irish fare. A little hit or miss-we've had the best damn fresh bread irish andwich i've ever had but next time- EH below average

    The greatest craft beer selection in town PERIOD. The staff is very down to earth. This is where you come to try something new and make new friends for sure!

    Johnnie MacCracken’s Celtic Firehouse in Marietta unapologetically celebrates a time when bars were dim and smoky and, well, kind of grubby. Read more

    Chicken and chips was awesome!

    Trish is an absolutely fantastic bartender. Make sure to sit outside if the weather allows, you'll meet some great people and it's not as crowded as inside.

    Everyone makes fast friends here! As a staff member, I have seen so many bonds made at my bar! Cheers!!

    Worst food ever! Cheese plate is sliced deli cheese,dry boiled chicken sandwich served on an ice cold roll w/soggy chopped onions chilling in water for a week. Awful pizza & inedible grilled cheese

    The owner is an ass! Asked a woman to not bring her 1/2 eaten boxed up salad to an outdoor table. She ate it around the corner as he harassed her off property. And a 3rd time while enjoying a beverage

    Non Smokers: use the far right entrance for a fresher-air MacCracken's experience.

    Great to have a fire pit outside in the back. Probably the only Pub around ATL to do that. And an excellent selection of whisky!

    Good joint, but poor bartenders that are rude and don't reflect principals of owners. Avoid.

    4 drinks, slow service and a $43.00 tab. Definitely NOT going back to this overpriced dive.
