My wife, daughter, and I had to be in Ardmore over lunch and thought that McCloskey's Tavern, on an off street, had a lot of old world charm and decided that this was the place for lunch. We were not disappointed. Service was warm, friendly,...More

Visiting with grandchildren in the upper teens, this proved to be a perfect place to sit back and not hurry through our meal. The burgers are large and varid and quite good according to my grandson. My granddaughter and I had the special soup and...More

The food and staff are great. The initial wait time on a Friday night could have deterred others but not our group of 4. It's a local place, many familiar faces and the 15-20 minute quote was gone in a blink of an eye. A...More

The menu and seasonal beer selections are amazing! The attentive service and friendly staff makes McCloskey's not only one of my family's favorite restaurants, but also without a doubt the best in the area! The Apple Jameson wings are definitely worth a try!

McCloskey's is always a pleasant time. Food is as delicious as it always is. Service was pretty good. Our drinks were kept filled and server made sure we were pleased. Server was pleasant. Definitely will return.

Came for lunch while traveling. Seems like a nice place and I would return but prime rib sandwich was over cooked and service while nice was pretty inattentive even though the place was pretty much empty.

My wife and I had been visiting in Ardmore and had to try McCluskey's based on all the fantastic reviews I read - and not only from TA respondents but from many other internet sources as well. After all, it's not often that a tavern...More

Best pub food around. Love their specials, you can't go wrong. Lots of food always easy to take home a bag of extras. Their burgers are great and the beer is always ice cold. Great spot in the warmer weather with the front windows open....More
