  • Take off your hat and show some respect, theyve been serving ale in this spot for 150 years. Try the McGillins 1860 IPA.
  • We'll turn Drury Street into a Giant Beer Garden for Midtown Village Fall Festival on Saturday, 10/1. Activities throughout neighborhood 12 noon - 8 pm.
  • The oldest continuously operating (since 1860), family-run, beer-centric tavern in the city. Know this: they don't serve Guinness. You can get O'Hara's, a stout exclusively brewed in Ireland.
  • The house ale (McGillan's Pale Ale) is actually Stoudt's Scarlett Lady... A VERY GOOD BEER!!
  • Good food & drink!!! Can't beat the prices!!!
  • Stop by for Throwback Tuesdays after 5p. $1 mugs/$5 pitchers of the night's 'throwback' beer until the keg kicks!
  • Mixed grill and a beer sampler is the way to go
  • Huffington Post named this place the top bar in the U.S. to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Cheers!
  • Philadelphia's oldest tavern (open since 1860!) offers a spot to grab a pint, watch the game and lap up local history in a spot that outlasted Prohibition. Try the "Iggletini" during football season.
  • McGillin's is transformed for the holidays. It takes 15 people 5 hours to hang the over-the-top decorations -- 3,000 feet of garland, 1,000 feet of lights, 150 red bows and 200 ornaments.
  • Monday Night Special ~ Check-in to McGillin's 11pm-1am for $4 Jagermeister shots, $3 Soco Lime Shots and $2 pints of Pabst Blue Ribbon.
  • Tuesday 35cent wings and $5 pitchers is the move!
  • Bring back Friday karaoke!
  • Love the free soup! Youll have to order something a drink, a sandwich (we like the straightforward and substantial turkey club) to access the free soup (at lunch only).
  • Get a steal of a price on a pitcher of PBR or go for the craft brew. Either way, you've got to try their chili nachos or $0.35 wings on Tuesday Nights. See the fun we had on a Saturday - Tap More Info
  • On Wednesdays, two tacos for $1. Good food/good price!
  • Texas Fries & pitchers of beer on the cheap! Always great music & a great crowd. Love this place!
  • Leap into a time warp at this circa-1860 landmark, a great place a beer at amazing prices; though a frat-party atmosphere reigns in a building where our forefathers dreamed of grandeur.
  • The Old Bay wings are cooked to a crispy perfection and go great with a pitcher of PBR.
  • Super fun pub with great beer selection and awesome karaoke, get the wings and mozz sticks after a pitcher or two! Sing and be merry
