J. Mackey's on L St?

Anyone been? A group is forming to go soon for extended happy hour and probably dinner - haven't seen mention of it, so I thought I'd query CH.

  1. Strictly bar food and forgettable at that.

    1. I dont know if it qualify it as "strictly bar food" necessarily as their menu is fairly extensive going well beyond the wings and nachos bar staples. Yes they do tend to serve mostly predictable irish pub fair (fish and chips, shepherds pie, steak, corned beef and cabbage, etc.) none of which will knock your socks off. Although on Fridays they do have a grilled shrimp and scallop salad thats not bad. And its worth going just for the happy hour drinks.

      1. Definitely great for hh and they have a patio if you enjoy drinking outdoors. Food is average, but it's a fun place.
