Photo of Laura P."This is my spot and I'm a little territorial about it!!! Only living in Madison Park for about a year now and this was one of the first places I checked out once I was in the neighborhood. It's excellent! Since I frequent so much it's been nice getting to know the guys that work there. The owner is super nice and friendly, very personable which is nice cause it shows he cares about his business.  The food is good! The Taco Salad, Pizzas and clams are my top faves. It's noting fancy but i've always been satisfied after having a meal here. They also have Magners which is an Irish cider that not a lot of places have so I always feel like it's a little treat when I get to have it.   I love McGilvra's because it's a casual fun Irish sports pub with several flat screens always playing a game of some sort and a huge patio with a view of Lake Washington right across the street. Best seats for summer time!"   ~ Laura

We always get out of there full after ordering 3 appetizers and 2 beers for $20.00!!! My favorite are the coconut prawns with the sweet chili sauce, I also enjoy the caprese  which they don't skimp on, the hot wings are good so are the Irish fries and GIANT baked potato with bacon, cheese and sour cream, meat and cheese plate is tasty...  I love that there is plenty of parking around there and I have never had to fight for it or pay at that...  I also think it's nice that if parents want to go out to a "pub" sort of place that they can bring thier kids in and still enjoy the Happy Hour" ~ Whitney

Photo of Cameron B."Mcgilvra's is a great place to grab a pitcher on a nice day. They routinely swap out the beer selection, and always have trivia or some other event happening on week nights. Favorite food items are the jalapeno mozzarella sticks, the Greek salad and the bacon Mac. McGilvra's has a great community feel where it seems like everyone knows everyone, and there are always familiar faces at the bar. During the summer, It's probably the best for lunch. The guys who work the bar are awesome and always down to chat. If it's nice out, expect it to be busy and service can get slow. Great local bar with an awesome local crowd!" ~ Cameron
