Low, low prices for good pub food. It's open each evening except Sunday for food and all the locals go there too.

The MacDonald Arms decor and furnishings are a bit tired to say the least but you should not let this put you off.
The bar staff are friendly and helpful. The food is of a very good pub standard and it well worth trying the specials on the board. The prices compare well with the big chain pubs and seem cheaper than other establishments in Tobermory. Reasonable selection of beer and wine.
Good enough for me to visit twice.

During a short visit only eat in here once but it was always busy and it's where the locals eat. Very basic furnishings but clean and pleasent enough, great service and good clean traditional food, easy to recommend.

This has to be one of the best value meals in a long time! Nothing fancy - just good, basic meals, very nicely cooked & in a pleasant atmosphere. Very friendly staff. Several visitors from abroad eating when we were, & there is nothing to add except - well done!

What else is there to say? We ate here on a quiet night, I had an excellent haddock and chips and my husband had an extremely large helping of venison sausages with very good mash. Both dishes had some vegetables and I had some salad too. Neither of us had room for dessert, and we enjoyed it so much that we came back a second time, and got a similarly good deal that time too.
The music festival was on while we were there, so it was a bit too noisy for us to visit again, but on another occasion we would definitely have gone back. We thought the staff friendly and the service good. Yes, the decor is a bit tired, but it's a locals' pub and not a 'fine dining' establishment, and we thought it excellent value for money.
