First time when into this pub. It was great. The atmosphere was just right there, and you'd feel like you are in one of the corners in a movie kind of setting. Pretty cool. If you have a chance to be Saint Louis, make sure to stop by.

What St Patricks Day celebration would be without a trip to McGurks Irish Pub. Everyone was wearing the GREEN and Irish eyes were smiling. Food was quick once we found a table especially since the place was packed as expected. Was very disappointed with the early evening "Irish" music-I was looking forward to and expected Irish traditional tunes especially that... More

This restaurant is my wife's and my favorite restaurant. They have awesome Irish-style food with some of the best homemade chips you will ever eat. They have an outdoor area that they cover in the winter and have open in the spring, summer and fall. It has a very nice ambiance to it. It's great for drinks or food or... More

Fun place to eat and drink. They have an outdoor patio(seasonal), bar seating and street parking. Delicious pub chips, sandwiches, salads as well as appetizers to share. Friendly servers and lots of drink choices. There are a few vegetarian options, but extremely limited vegan options.

McGurk's is THE place in town for wonderful traditional Irish music. The Irish musicians and the atmosphere at McGurk's transport you to a pub in 'The Emerald Isle' . . McGurk's also has a great outdoor patio which is often packed during the summer months . . . this is one of the true hidden gems in St. Louis!

Happened to walk in on a Tuesday night after eating at Tuckers Place, a live band was playing live Irish music. It was a great time, a very nice bar, great atmosphere, good drinks, live crowd.

Had lunch here with friends with each of us trying something different and sharing tastes. All 5 of us concluded the Reuben was the best ever! The house potato soup was exceptional the onion soup was not s favorite due to a prominent vinegar flavor--unexpected!

I love McGurk's. When I came back to the U.S. from Europe, it was the first place I wanted to go. When I moved to Boston I thought surely there will be a place as fantastic as McGurk's...

Food was very good, I had the Irish Lamb Stew served in a sourdough bread bowl. My dinner partners had Beef Medallions and Beef Stew. I had the McGuire Amber Ale. Everything was great. Our waitress was very attentive to our needs and ensured we were doing ok. The prices are very reasonable. Will definitely return next time in town.
