Reviewed 15 June 2014

I went after a day of rafting hungry for a good meal. The place was busy. But the staff moved quickly and service was great. I ordered a steak salad which was delicious and fresh. Their was an unexpected piece of break with it which lacked flavor. Great beer selection as well.

“Food is still good”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Dinner with friends Sunday night. They were out if our new favorite beer - Icicle's Dirty Face Amber, but we settled.for.water and a Saddle Rock lager (that really wasn't - actually got something darker and heavier than Saddle Rock).

Food here is still very good, and service is still mediocre at best. We continue to eat here semi-regularly just because of the food. Service used to be good but went downhill several years ago. We rarely get what we order or all of our order. Sunday night we were ignored while our friends sitting directly across from us at the same table were asked for and served a drink order.

Noise level still too high for normal conversation, but it's always been that way.

If you don't mind being ignored and getting the wrong order or an incomplete order the food is pretty good.

“Awesome food, eat-in or takeout!”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Eaten there numerous times, always consistently good and super-friendly wait-staff. Also take-out a few times, very well done too, all in recyclable packaging!

“Great Food, Fun Atmosphere”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

While attending a conference found this gem! We had a wonderful dinner, delicious, large portions and super service! It was a Friday night and the place was packed, people lined up waiting. We went in to leave our name and told them we would sit at the bar. Got right in and enjoyed watching the folks as they scurried around helping folks. The staff had smiles and a helped folks with orders as needed. Pizza and salad were made of fresh produce and they were both yummy!

“McGlinn's Lifer”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

I have been going to McGlinn's for over 20 years. As a kid, I went with my mom as she met with her book group at their favorite spot. I loved it then and still love it now...especially the beer bread! Although I unfortunately don't live in Wenatchee anymore, I always make it a point to visit McGlinn's at least once (usually more) each time I go back home. Sharing a pizza (or two) or nachos at the bar while drinking a few ciders and playing cribbage is my favorite way to enjoy McGlinn's. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu or seasonal beverages. If you're in the Wenatchee area, stopping at this historic and beautiful eatery is a must!
