our favorite pub on the UWS of Manhattan – Me and my friends always head to McAleer's when we are in town. Have been going for many years and some of my friends since Grad and Law School back in the late 1980s!! Keith (an orignal McAleer) has always been an amazing sweet and fun host . He always makes everyone feel at home and tells great jokes. McAleer's is good for watching all your favorite sports, celebrating fun times, or just relaxing on your own with a cold refreshing brew.
BRUNCH: Best Baileys Pancakes, breakfast burritos, and corn beef hash.
ANYTIME: Best char-grilled burgers, french fries, yummy buffalo wings, panko crispy chicken fingers, sandwiches, salads.
Plus Good drinks, beer, Jamesons and Guiness of course
Plenty of HD televisons to watch all the games + the 2010 worldcup too! There's always a party at McAleer's. Cheers mate!
My fav UWS Irish Pub – I love McAleers! Great local pub! Actually the oldest authentic Irish Pub on the UWS. There are alway neighbor locals, young and old, tourists, a good mix come here for the delicious reliable pub grub, wings, burgers, esp the sw burger, yum! Great beer selection and they serve a very good brunch on Sundays. Why wait in the cold outside Sarabeth's for hours ?? A Plus,the charming owner, Keith McAleer has done a great job in keeping up with the times and the ever changing neighborhood all these years.!
THE BEST BAR IN THE CITY – RELLY LIKED THE PLACE....LOVED THE DECOR
Very good burger and wings – Been here a few times and ate for the first time last week. The wings and burgers are fantastic. You gotta try the southwest burger-it's awsome!
The staff is friendly and owner- Keith McAleer is really nice.
Better than ever. – I've been coming here to Mac's for some time now and I must say it's better than ever. The staff is cool and the food and atmosphere is outstanding.
Keith McAleer, the owner, has done a great job of maintaining a neighborhood pub in an area of constant change.
Love the wings special – I'm a newcomer to the Upper West Side and stumbled upon Mac's one Friday night. The place just feels comfortable to me. The food is good and the staff is friendly. The wings special they have is the best in NYC. Where else can you get a free double order of wings with the purchase of 2 pitchers of beer.
Real Gem in UWS – I really love this bar. I come in at least once a week with friends and have been doing so for a few months now. I doesn't matter if we sit at the bar or a table we get good service and 100% of the time are recongnized. Cool thing about the staff, they actually seem to be friends.
I love love love the southwest burger!! And they have magners cider, which I love.
Not as crazy as the otehr places in the area but when i do come in on fri night its always a blast, good music.
BIG PLUS*** Smoking on the patio****
Worst Bartenders on the Upper West Side – Still cannot believe it. I went into this bar with 10 friends when it was definitely not busy. All 10 of my friends ordered and one of them got 2 pitchers which we were sharing. One my friends and I wanted water, so I tried to order. I waited patiently for a few minutes to even be waited on. When I finally was, I asked for 2 waters. Then the male bartender continued to serve a whole bunch of people, but no water for me. After 10 minutes I was super annoyed, watching him drink and mess around behind the bar. I told the female bartender I'd been waiting for 10 minutes for water. She shrugged me off and continued to wait on others. Finally, I was like "Excuse me, but I've been waiting over 10 minutes for water. Can I get it?". Then she very rudely says "It's just water. It's not even a paid drink". At which point I told her off - especially since I was holding a tip for the water in my hand! She called the bouncer over (who was pretty nice about the whole thing - only reasonable person on the staff) and had me kicked out, so my entire party left. If I was the manager - I'd fire both bartenders. My friends and I were celebrating a b-day and were spending a lot of money. They lost hundreds of dollars, just because they didn't want to serve water. Since there are so many other bars and much better service - go someplace else. The people at this bar don't care about you. You will get served faster at Gin Mill or Jake's Dilemna, even when they are packed.
Best burger I've had in nyc (or anywhere) in a long time. – Lived around the corner for eons, heard good things about it, drank there a few times - but until I had a burger I had no idea! Even on an off night, they are pretty good. But when they are great, they are very very great.
