Most overrated hellhole in the city. If you specialize in one thing, as McSorley's only serves beer, then you'd better do it right. The bartenders do not know how to pour beer, however, and the servers are the rudest and most unprofessional around. The glasses are slammed down on the table at room temperature, half full of foam. Once the foam settles, before you've taken even one sip, the beverage is only 75% full. If you're going to under-pour me warm, foamy beer, at least do it with a smile. I'm a young woman, and the server yelled at me, loudly and publicly, for reasons I still don't understand. My boyfriend asked him nicely to stop insulting me and please bring our drinks, and the guy said, "Why are you telling me what to do? I'm busy!" As a server, it's your job to take orders, so get used to it. My boyfriend attempted to escalate to a manager and was asked to leave. There were people blackout drunk all around us, running to the bathroom to vomit or being carried outside by their friends. My boyfriend had nothing to drink and was calmly attempting to rectify a service issue, and they tried to bounce us. We left anyway, because who would want to stay there, but a place as old as this one should operate with a better understanding of customer loyalty and appreciation. They seem to justify the gruff service as traditionally Irish, but I've been to Dublin and this behavior would never fly in actual Irish pubs, where everyone is warm, happy and gracious. Old McSorley must be rolling in his grave. Worst night out in months. AVOID.

Great place to drink and eat. From out of town and look forward to returning each time. Lots of character and no nonsense flair.
