This place is a standard bar. If you're looking to grab a quick drink before hitting the XL Center, go right ahead. Service is average. Ambiance is average. Drinks are average. Do NOT get food from here though. I had the buffalo chicken sliders, and...More

Even though it sounds like I panned the place, I still enjoyed the time I spent there. They had a great group of musicians on Wednesday night. There must of been 12-13 musicians with various instruments jamming away. They were very good, entertaining. I had...More

Upon entering, we were immediately warmly greeted in a nonetheless unobtrusive way. Drinks orders were taken and served quickly and cheerfully, as in our 2 previous visits, at very reasonable prices. Stark contrast to another establishment (reviewed separately) which we had just walked out of...More

Pretty normal bar environment. Good sized place and there was live music on 12/17 which is always a plus. Bartender was good - overall nice atmosphere. I like Vaughan's better though. More authentic and cozier.

Not a bad bar to stop by for drinks with co-workers and friends, but nothing special. If you want to eat, I'd stick with Vaughan's, which has better food, a bigger menu and more seating.

Service was very good...friendly crowd... Decent prices...food was ok but not a place to bring a date for dinner. Best to meet friends here for drinks before or after dinner. I'll be back

This is one of the better Irish pubs downtown. More known for being a drink spot than an eat spot, but the food is decent.

McKinnon's is like an Irish pub in London. One of those sad places where sorry Irish expats hang out and get good and drunk. If you're in London, go to an english pub. If you're in Hartford and want to go to an irish style...More

our last stop of "irish pubs" in Hartford-mainly a bar-don't waste your money on food.Menu is lacking. We should have left when they brought our "side" of chips-bagged potato chips.
