The owner makes this place awful! We came here with friends and the food and bar was awful... Don't eat or drink here overpriced and not a good place for Fairhope! We had to wait over an hour for food and the owner did nothing to discount us.... We will not be back and neither will our friends.. don't make... More

We decided to eat indoors, nice atmosphere, loved our very friendly bartender/server Larkin. Fast and efficient service. Reasonable prices. Being Wisconsinites, we were thrilled to have Pabst on tap. The hummus trio appetizer was super good, and the warm pits a great touch. My mom loved her fish and chips, the hubby liked his best, but we all agreed that... More

My wife and I visited here on the evening of Sept 8, 2016. We had a long day with her sister having a procedure at a local hospital and were just looking for a place to unwind with a few beverages. I read a few mixed reviews on this place, some of them knocking the staff but this was not... More

I can't speak for anything else on the menu, because after I had their Reuben sandwich, I can't seem to order anything else. It is outstanding! Some of their beer combos are pretty good too.

McSharry's is a really cool traditional Irish pub. Great beer selection, friendly approachable feel, reasonable prices, and a great place to meet friends or watch a game. They have all of the standard Irish favorites on tap. It's a regular stop when I'm out with guys for beers downtown.

The owner and his crew of dim-witted bartenders could not be more arrogant. I am not sure how this place stays in business with the way they behave towards customers. Bartenders ignored us and told my friend to get lost (in a much harsher manner) when he tipped on the first drink he ordered but not on the second. Another... More

Best burger in town... hands down! It is a great atmosphere. The staff was very attentive and met the needs of everyone at our table. We will definitely be visiting again soon!

It's a nice little Irish pub, but it's not a great place. There are several places in Fairhope that should be higher on your list to take visitors, or even just to go for a couples date. While they do have an impressive beer list, and the food isn't bad, the service is lacking. The last two times we have... More

I was the only one inside. Bartender gave me the cold should but warmed up some before I left. Good Guinness that he drew on foam for me. Fish and Chips is a large portion and none of it greasy or very flavorful. Bread pudding was some of the worst I have ever tried. Had to wait to pay while... More

This is a nice getaway from all the shopping and walking around in Fairhope. Cold beer, good food, fun atmosphere. No strangers here, belly up to the bar and make a new friend. You can sit inside or lounge around outside if you like!
