Trashy waitresses and annoying text spam! – If you want lukewarm crappy domestic beers and trashy waitresses, then this is the place for you! The beer selection blows, the bartenders and waitresses are snobby as if they work at 4 Seasons, yet are incredibly trashy in their shorts and knee socks- far from 'hot'. This establishment is not only awful for drinks/food/service, but their ethics are appalling. I went here for a job interview to be a bartender over 2 years ago, and the job interview/ open call just turned out to be a scam to drum up customers. Now I get a phone call and text from McFaddens 3 times a week telling me to come in for happy hour, despite the numerous times I've requested to be removed from their calling list. If you get a job interview or "open call" here, keep looking.
Don't Support Them!! – This place SUCKS!!! First of all they don't allow hats!! Are you serious what type of place don't allow hats especially a freakin pub. . . o so high class. There's this one bouncer guy with the spiky hair, what an a$$. He said one of my girls were drunk but she wasn't even close to drunk yet, he just wanted to kick us out because we commented on the hat thing and annoyed him. He not only kicked us out but ask us to leave from the back door. We were never treated with such harshness before, never will I ever go back to this classless place.
best tenders in town – your bar at the citizens bank park is the best fun of all. great bartenders- they remember your name . i'm a season ticket holder and comes 2x a month & a few in between. my husband is my driver & dosen't drink. your sunday staff deserves an applause. you have a mcfadden's ladies calendar~ where are the men!!! you need to auction them off for a charity of their choice. for dinner that night at mcfaddens. you reap from both ends.
Dancing on top of the bar. – I Loved the designs of the bars and how happy the bartenders are...and even better the band playing in springfest 09 outside.surely going back.
Bachelorette Party- RIP OFF – I had my bachelorette party here and the aspects of the bar were a HUGE let down. It was $20 all you could drink- no shots, hardly any alcohol in the mixed drinks and the "chardonnay" tasted like it was fermented in reproductive fluid. The "VIP" area was in a dark, smelly basement and the bartender was a top shelf tool. Most of the people there were set on "gyrate against anything that moves". The girls in my party basically paid $20 for cranberry juice. DO NOT have your bachelorette party here unless you want to throw away your money.
Great Bachelorette Party – I've been to McFadden's a couple times and it was a pretty standard bar with a cool and friendly crowd, but this past weekend was well above par! We were a 15 person bachelorette party and set-up before hand to come. When we got there, they let us in for free even with the Summerfest Party going on - saving us each $15 - AND they gave us each free drink tickets. It was easy to get drinks at the bar throughout the night -except when one random female bartender decided that lip synching on the bar was much more important than actually serving drinks. The only other complaint is that the music was extremely loud - louder than I've ever experienced and I've been to my share of loud parties, concerts, bars, ect. Shouting at my max volume was still not loud enough to even tell the hot guy next to me my name. The entire group couldn't sleep all night because our ears were ringing so bad. But really - it was super fun and the bachelorette was very happy with our choice of venues!
Disappointing NYE Party – Purchased tix to the NYE party only to wait in line for 45 minutes in the cold. When we finally got inside, we were less than impressed with the lukewarm food and terrible DJ, who didn't play anything created after 1989. The only redeeming quality was the fun-loving crowd. I will never buy NYE tix there again.
Thursday Football – I was looking to watch a football game on ESPN Thursday night. I tried Finnigan's wake, but every TV was tuned to baseball. McFadden's had more TVs and multiple channels. The $5 cover charge entitlted me to $2 mixed drinks. The 2nd bar in the other room, had multiple bartenders and I was served promptly.
Happy hour hot spot for those who've graduated from Delaware Avenue. – In Short
This two-story watering hole is another pseudo-Irish pub for the not-so discriminating young partier. The crowd tends to be an upscale, professional group. On weekends, it's packed with young, good-looking people. There is cozy dark wood trim, welcoming booths and flowing Guinness, but it's the generous happy hours (like $1 bottles) and top 40 soundtrack that bring in the crowds. The bar is Eagles headquarters, with drink specials during games and more televisions than Circuit City.
Great Time Always Had – I go to McFaddens every Friday night for Happy Hour. You can't bet it! It's a great place. And great people..Always a great time!
