First time I had been and it was great. Booked for 4 persons so we could have a meal and drinks while watching the football. The booking process is easy ( would recommend booking as it seems very popular) Asked for a table by a TV and they sat us right in front of the big screen :) Once sat down the very pleasant staff take your orders so you never have to go to the bar. The service was great, never had an empty glass. The food is great value and the all day breakfast we ordered was very tasty. Overall it's a wonderful venue for live sport with tv screens everywhere. Efficient service with a smile and not too pricey either. Would recommend it to all. Well done McCooleys

Great bar with friendly helpful staff. Loads of atmosphere. It's a bar that seems to attract people who are nice to be around. Drinks are reasonably priced too. One of our company had the food. He really enjoyed it. I've been to McCooley's many times and it's my No.1 bar 😀👏🏻

Fantastic night at McCooley's. Brilliant pub in the heart of Concert Square, the food was great and the band The Reform were fantastic! I'd definitely recommend this place if you're coming to Liverpool for a night out.

Overall we had an enjoyable experience. The food and drinks were reasonably priced. We had a few hiccups whilst we were there, however McCooley's staff dealt with the issues very professionally and swiftly. In particular we enjoyed the live music in the evening.

Called me to say they were overbooked and couldn't guarantee my table, even though we booked online. We arrived and they found us a table not long after so fair play to them for sorting it out. Food was decent, lots of screens for the sport and quite good service. They seemed a bit confused about whether you could vape indoors or not though!

Possibly the nicest meal ive ever had. Nice big bar, lots of room. Friendly staff. Only thing i didnt like was where we were sat, soft seated booths everwhere and we were sat on hard seats. However would definitely eat here again and reccomend this to anyone looking for both a fantastic meal and a bit of craic. Will be visiting again!

We came for the footy. Was there just over 3 hours. The mixed grill was amazing, good quality cuts of meat and good portion size. Needed a sharper steak knife though. Chairs weren't the comfiest, hopefully get a couch next time. Friendly waitresses, good prices and good service. Definitely be coming back.

Table was ready on time. Lively atmosphere. Excellent service and probably the best value for money that I have had in a long time. The sauce on the ribs was to die for.

Went to watch the Everton v Chelsea FA cup match. Was told it would be on....very disappointed as missed the first 20mins due to rugby being shown and staff unsure on how to show various games at a time over multiple screens. Service poor, waited ages for drinks and food.

The food sounded better than it was, one starter was just a bowl of sausages. We had ribs which were filling on a positive note. I'm glad we used a tastecard as a 2 course meal with drinks for 2 people was half price at £17. I would not have been happy paying full price for the food. The service was good.

Booked for lunch on Sun 27th Dec. The Irish Stew was awful and the service was very slow despite the place being virtually empty. We won't be rushing back.
