Our stop in Marietta en route to Philly meant finding dinner. We took a chance on Mcleary's as it was recommended-- What a surprise! Inside we discovered the old Irish pub atmosphere we had hoped for. The food, efficient service and humming ambience truly endeared us to the place. We were sad to be passing through Marietta, otherwise, this would... More

We were out & about on that side of the river when I remembered having heard about this place. My husband & I love trying new places. Outside, the place doesn't look like much but inside it is done up very nicely. We were seated in the covered & heated patio in the back, which was great. I had the... More

The staff went up and beyond to make sure all our employees were satisfied and kept happy. What a great job they did. The food was absolutely... More

Got two thumbs up from several friends I took on my return visit to the area, after an initial visit in June. Boddington's on tap (nitro) was excellent, as was the fire-roasted tomato bisque and Shepherd's Pie.

We have remembered very delicious meals at McCleary's. Not today. Our soup, salad and entrees were all served within three minutes. The place was not busy. The kitchen had plenty of time to pace the meal. For the staff to serve like this is just poor.The soup was delicious. Had to put salad aside so we could eat it while... More
