Very friendly nieghborhood sort of atmosphere. Ordered the bangers and mash which was just wonderful and had a pint of New Belgium Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough to wash it down with.

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

Extensive variety of food ranging from pub fare to surf and turf. Amazing list of beers. All in a lively, but not too boisterous atmosphere. Service was impeccable and food was outstanding. I was impressed by the fresh ingredients in the house salad. My wife and I dined in the patio as we arrived without a reservation at about 7:30... More

The special was prime rib with mashed potatoes and asparagus. It was offered in 10 or 14 oz portions. It was properly cooked medium rare and was very good. The surf and turf was a filet mignon and a crab cake and was very good too.

We normally hit McCleary's twice a week and every time we go, the service is outstanding and the food is awesome! If you get to Marietta, make this place a stop for lunch or dinner! You won't regret it!

I had lunch here with friends this week. I'd been hearing such good things about this place, and I really enjoyed my first visit. Everything on the menu looked good; I settled on the crab quesadilla and was very happy. Our server even asked if I was OK with the jalapeños and black olives with which it was prepared. I... More

Been there a number of times. One of the fine restaurants in a beautiful old river town. Along the hiking and biking trail. Imported and local brews. An Irish Pub that serves food for many tastes. Caters to couples or to large groups (requires reservations for larger groups), music on weekends.

Thank Ernest L
