Having had a great breakfast there with family, we had a birthday dinner several weeks later. We enjoyed the boneless fried chicken, the ribs, and other entrees. Everybody really enjoyed their meal. The waitresses were very polite and helpful. We should go more often!

Just visited McGoverns for an impromptu meal with our friends, having visited for the first time in 2015. Scallops to die for. Still fabulous food and great staff. Seems to be a regular now on our visits to the US.

Sorry to say this place is a thing of the past. The decor and the food could use some sprucing up. Don't think I'll be returning to this place again.

Was very disappointed. Food was mediocre we went on a recommendation and I teased my friend about not knowing good food.
