    If you like waiting 15 minutes at the bar to order a beer then receive attitude from the staff, then you've come to the right place!

    Friend won a party with free drinks for her & half off for us. She had to pay for shots & they overcharged us. Is this a club? A bar? A restaurant? Make up your mind McFaddens. Or dont. Not comin back

    WORST BAR EVER. It was my best friends 21st and some girl started shit and they kicked MY FRIEND OUT. They are so rude and inconsiderate and abusive. Avoid if possible. Peace be with you.

    They are doing construction while being open. A bit rude.. Food is meh. Not enough crap on the walls to be a real pub either..

    Probably the most impersonal, difficult place I've been. The people that own and operate this place have no idea how to accomidate their crowd. Aaaall about the money.

    Don't sit in any of the booths that are near to the bathroom, because that's all you'll be smelling all night!

    The wings at McFadden's are good and the drinks are priced right, but this bar has a beer pong table that ensures the presence of a certain low-rent frat boy element. Read more

    This place smells like raw sewage, has a piss poor beer selection, and is a general dive. I wouldn't drink here with your mouth.

    This Irish joint has a bar that’s 70 feet long. The ladies (not professionals) love to dance on it. Grab a Harp, sit back, and enjoy the show.

    Wednesday nights are the best. Also, you can purchase an open bar package. $20 gives you a good 3 hours to get silly.

    The place is a joke. I have never been more disrespected in my entire life until I went to this bar. The bouncers are abusive and pretty much thugs. They prey on women and establish a fake "cover char

    How does this bar think they deserve to ban Hats and "baggy" clothes when they serve whiskey in plastic dixie cups?

    Not a huge weekend fan -- too many douchebag surburbanites -- , but during the week, you can grab the tailgate appetizer and a drink special to watch a game.

    Not to mention the shard of glass found in my first drink of the night. Glad I was sober enough to catch it.
