What makes McKenna's Place stand out from any other Sports Bar or restaurant? Wonderful greeting at the door (owner, hostess, servers get to know you by name) Fast Seating (efficient seating system) (server is immediately notified when you sat at the table) Atmosphere (neighborhood feeling, watch your favorite game, play trivia and tables provide good privacy) Friendliness (private mug with your name on it!) (you can tell the employees love working there) Menu (great selections with abundance of appetizer choices, shell fish raw bar, sandwiches, entrees, outstanding steaks and seafood. My Favorite: Mild Buffalo Chicken Sandwich - 8oz Large Tasty Chicken Sandwich (ask for the homemade cole slaw!) Service & Food deserves a 5 star plus rating Wide selection of items, example seafood Fresh Clams, Oysters, King Crab, Alaskan Crab Legs, Mahi-Mahi, Striped Pangesus, Fish Dip, Shrimp, Clam Strips, Pollock, Tilapia and more (I forgot). The corned beef and cabbage is wonderful. The "Place" is always busy - I wonder why (see above reasons). Tell Mike - "Tim" said hello You can find Mike at the front door, in the dining room floor or inspecting your food when coming out the kitchen. Tim Ormond Beach, FL
Not sure where these people rating this place one star ate, but it couldn't have been the Boston's we ate at. The food was delicious and served hot. There was a short wait, but the hostess served us free onion rings while in line. We had a party of 11 that they accommodated easily. The food was served quickly and my glass never got empty. The only area I could see that improvements could be made is letting people who are there for the first time know the procedure for ordering and such. Once we figured that out it was smooth sailing. Price was great too. For my part, 2 adults and 3 children, we paid around $60 and I ordered the $23 captains platter. It was so good that we are going back tonight to eat there again!
I ate here yesterday and was very happy with my choice. Because of the reviews on here I was hesitant after a friend recommended it. Yes you do order and pay when you enter and are then seated. The service was very fast and the food was excellent. I had the fried Gulf shrimp with fries and the squash medley. Everything was perfect. I left stuffed and will be returning and recommending it to others.
