Great time

I enjoyed McFadden's immensely. Love irish bars. I have always had a great time here, but I will admit that it is not for everyone. Sometimes you may not get the adequate service you believe you deserve. I think it is just a matter of personal preference, and this bar is to my liking.

racism

The place is a joke. I have never been more disrespected in my entire life until I went to this bar. The bouncers are abusive and pretty much thugs. They prey on women and establish a fake ""cover charge' in order to bank some money. They also play ""kick out the random ni**er"", where they will simply ask a African American person within the bar to step outside only to tell them they have been thrown out the bar with no premise. This place is outright wrong, the most racist and disgus...view moreting bar in Chicago.I'm personally going to petition an inquiry on this place, I hope to shut this place down.view less

gross

First of all, I used to be a big fan of McFadden's...but I feel like once you're legally allowed to drink, it's no longer fun! You are shoulder to shoulder with strangers, there is nothing to dance to, and staff there are rude.

I have talked to the management there, and they are more rude than their staff.

Bottom line: unless you're a 20-21 year-old frat boy, I would refrain from entering this dump!

Best Experience!

I recently had my birthday party at McFadden's because my friends said they ALWAYS have a good time there. Indeed it was an amazing night! Service was great, bartenders were friendly, and music was terrific! It's a great place to bring a ton of people for a night out on the town! My friends from out of town absolutely loved the bar and definitely want to go back when they come in town again. Great bar. No doubt about it.

HORRIFIC!

Went to McFadden's a couple of weekends ago for a friends birthday and was surprised by how awful it was! The DJ was horrible, played nothing good to dance to. It was way too hard to get a bartenders attention to get a drink. Unfortunately, the only think you could count on was having creepy guys hitting on you all night! Would NOT recommend this bar to anyone.

Most easy going bar in gold coast

My friends and I are always in the area but never went to Mcfaddens because of the long lines to get in. We went there last week for my friend's birthday party. The party package was inexpensive for the area, which is awesome. But the music was way to loud and dated for our tastes. The crowd there is younger and clean, which we liked. Also, we like that it's easy to be yourself there and not having to worry about acting stupid, because every around us was. Some of us were actuall...view morey on top of the bar dancing. The price's for drinks were moderate but the service was nice. We had this hot bartender named south side who had us all on the floor laughing, one of my girlfriends actually hooked up with him with later. Overall, our experience was a good one. We will definately be back soon and would recommend it to anyone for a great time.view less

Good food, loud music

Most of the time when we go to McFadden's, we have a great time, except that it's difficult to hear during dinner time. They might want to think about waiting to turn the music up later in the night. Food's good, but a bit overpriced. Despite what they may think, we're not actually in New York.

Good bar, a little pricey

McFadden's is a good solid bar, but isn't one of my favorites. They have a tendency to keep the music a bit too loud to hold a conversation, and happy hour gets overly crowded - i.e. elbows in your sides, knocked drinks, etc. The food is pricier than the happy hour specials you'd find on Division, though it's arguably also better. Since it's new, they give out happy hours often, where you can get an open bar for all of your friends for $10 apiece or so, for maybe 2 hours. It's a go...view moreod bar to go with a ton of people though.view less
