Had lunch at McGarry's....first time. Menu sounded great, but the food was only average. I had fish and chips--fish was thin with to much batter and fries were soggy. Shepard's pie was good. Wanted this to be a go to place, but I was disappointed.
Delicious. Especially the corned beef and shepard's pie. Total comfort food. The menu does change every so often, which is good and bad: you lose things you loved and gain new things to try. The bar and hightop area does get very noisy when busy, and the manger is overly-friendly and obnoxious. Kind of a buzz-kill. Other than that, great place to eat!
We walk into this place and there's a bar full of joyful drunk people singing at the top of their lungs. We're seated promptly and the server informs us that it's "Half St. Patrick's Day". AHHH. Fun. Surly Furiouses all around (no Guinness for us) I order fish and chips (meh) and husband orders the Reuben (YUMMMMM). The entrees come with fries and coleslaw and SPICY PICKLES. I ate one of the jalepenos that these fridge-pickles are marinaded with and I felt it. It brought a tear to my eye. And I rather enjoyed it. The menu has a bunch of stuff that looks spectacular on it, so if we're in the neighborhood, we'll be back.
The interior is clean but very old and worn. I wouldn't go inside. I like going there for sandwiches (love the drivethorugh ) but it takes forever and the food is expensive for what you get. The sandwiches have very little, and low quality, meat.
Nice place. Horrible service. Teenage Baristas were disorganized and far too casual when there are multiple people waiting in line. I was 2nd in line and waited over 10 minutes for a simple latte. Then I watched her pour the shots directly in the cup. Big no no. Not happy.
Dropped in for a quick coffee and ended up having the best Italian hoagie I've ever had! Love this place and will definitely come back.
Definitely a restaurant that has gone down hill. Been going there with my parents since I was 6-7. Stopped back there a few weeks ago to eat. Way too overpriced and waitress actually got annoyed when I requested no tomatoes. She didn't seem to care if we were there or not. Won't be back. Sad because my dad grew up in lyndale and I have pleasant memories of going there.
Went in last night, had to wait a bit, (place in a small town), smaller place but got seated in a few minutes. Very friendly staff, good menu, steaks, chicken, ribs, burgers. Ordered a Sirloin, which was quite good, comes with soup, salad, roll , potatoes. All good. Come hungry! This place reminds of of so many places that I've visited (old school), who haven't tried to do so much that it compromises what they are all about at the start, i.e if your worried about your diet, go somewhere else. Good Food (plenty of it!), good service, great small town atmosphere. I will be back! p.s. I didn't have the cheesy au gratin potatoes, but man they looked good!!
Don't be fooled by your first view of the Ox Yoke. The inside maybe small and a little old but the food will surprise you. I have tried a few different things on the menu but the pork tenderloin sandwich was great, as well as the wraps. I have always chosen to have my meal with the sweet potato fries and have not been disappointed. The prices are on par for the type of food you get. It is probably not worth traveling miles out of your way for but if you are somewhat nearby, it is worth a try.
