Weekend breakfast in Fairport for us usually means Rikki's.....they have great menu, well prepared omelets, and it a variety of foods and their service (usually very good) can be a bit slow when they very busy. So, if you looking for some place different, and just a little nicer atmosphere..........then try McArdle's new Sunday brunch. Since Joey B's left Fairport... More

Usually go for Friday night and enjoy the fish. We enjoy the selection in how it's prepared and the Guinness is always grand

We have been here several times. Never disappointed. Nice fish fry. Solid food. Good for kids. Friendly staff. Never a large wait. Not too expensive.

On a Friday night - try the cod fish fry! It's delicious and different! Food is great. Service is great. Owner came over to check on us. It's like a pub with pub style food - but really good pub style food!

Due to life circumstances, we haven't been going out to eat as much. Last night, talked my husband into driving out to Fairport. I wanted to try McArdles again. It is obvious this place is doing quite well, and I think there a few reasons. The service is friendly and attentive, the atmosphere is cozy and fun (the booths are... More

I had their lamb stew special. Tasty. Service was polite and fast. Very comfortable booths. I'm a big guy and did not feel squeezed. Prices were reasonable. 4 of us was $130 with a nice tip.

Last Friday my husband and I went to one of our favorite restaurants. I ordered the scallop special. The owner himself brought the meal. The scallops were charred as were the asparagus. I complained and all he said was sorry, I'll take it off the bill. Well now, McArdles is off our bill.

Hi Lisa, I am sorry you didn't feel I handled your issue properly. It was my understanding that we offered to recook your meal or get you something else. When you did not want us to do that, I removed the item from your bill. You have been coming here a long time and you know the quality that comes... More

The food is traditional American style. We popped in for a quick dinner. It was early so we had a pick of booths to sit in. The service was quick and the food was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Welcome to McArdle’s Restaurant. We are a family owned and operated restaurant located just outside the village of Fairport near the Erie Canal. The attention to detail, quality and superior service makes McArdle’s a locals’ favorite. As you enter McArdle’s the first thing you will notice is the warm interior woodwork and the high backed wood booths crafted from hand selected pieces of white ash. These private booths provide the perfect setting for an intimate date night or family night out.
