    If you go on the weekend at lunch they serve a Full Irish breakfast with bangers, rashers, two eggs, black and white pudding and soda bread. Incredibly authentic and tasty. Get a pot of tea also.

    Everything on the menu is delicious! Steak and Guinness Pie is outstanding. A pot of tea is a necessary part of the experience too. And sit in the bar for a great live music show.

    Special order a burger topped with corned beef and chipotle mayo and your heart will be humming. I asked for it and they made it! Hopefully they'll put it on the menu when they go to print.

    OK, the Irish food here is great. That's a no brainer! However, the live authentic Irish music is what I'll be driving back to Nashville to experience again. Sit downstairs near the stage and enjoy!

    If you’re heading to Nashville, you have to stop in at McNamara’s Irish Pub and Restaurant for some Shepard’s Pie that tastes like it was made right in the center of Dublin.

    I LOVE McNamara's. The family who owns it are good family friends, so I go there a LOT. The food the music the people, everything is so amazing.

    The corn beef bites (sliders) are incredible. The upstairs can be rented out for functions and sports games. Live Irish music at 6 on most nights.

    CJ is a great server. Get a booth next to the Irish Sessions the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month. Chef salad without meat is great.

    Upstairs is way too small and loud.... The fish n chips.... Good try, but take the time to goto the " Tilted Kilt" much better! Not so good here

    Every Thursday-Sunday, Nosey Flynn is playing some amazing Irish Music. Serious one of the best music events in Nashville.

  • Dave F.

    The service, Irish whiskey, and potato soup alone are worth a visit. Everything else is merely fantastic!
