McLean’s is technically an Irish pub, but the only thing Irish about it is the Guiness and Guiness-related paraphernalia. But don’t get me wrong this place is pretty cool, like all Irish pubs it’s an amazing place to chill and debate all the critical issues such as who's cooler - Dr. Smooth or Dr. Bender. Thursday’s here is happy hour all night with pitcher’s price at only $7.00 (ordering anything else would just be uncivilized). Also note worthy – the food here is great…huge quantities at a low price and the poutine is out of this world (2 tips all you visitors out there: 1- try poutine (Quebec gastronomic gift to the world) and 2- try it at McLean’s)…prepare to unbuckle your belt. There’s also an up-stairs with a younger crowd and higher level of ‘hotness’ with pool tables and everything to start or finish the evening right…
Music Rock/Top 40 Hotness factor 2-6 / 10

Great bar to sit back, have a drink, watch the game, and just hang out with your friends. It has a nice relaxing atmosphere, a wide selection of alcohol, reasonably priced food and phenomenal bartenders. They make the best Gin and Tonic (specify Tanqueray) and Long Island Iced Tea I've ever at a bar.

A great place to go and have a beer, watch TV, and eat some food if need be. The service is quick and pleasant. Very good selection of beers, they do not have every beer on the planet, but no place does…. For the comment regarding the bouncer, he is no longer there. But… if you a young professional in your early 30’s, why can’t you afford a hamburger from the pub itself??? I mean, what next, bring your own beer? Your friend should have known better, and if not, at least ask. They did not open up that pub so you could go there a free-load. And the place is NOT empty, when there are hockey games, it is full, read any other review / site and it will be confirmed. I recommend it.

We have had several horrible experiences at McLeans, all due to their meathead bouncer. He is the big dumb one with the tattoos and the (possibly) Auzzie accent. The place looks like it would be great, but is usually empty due to his bad attitude/rage attacks. Our big table of 10 walked out the last (and final) time we were there after he had screamed/threatened one of our group for bringing in a small burger from the Harveys next door. The kitchen was closed, the place deserted, and he was allowing another group (who he told us were VIPs, waitress soon apologised and said they were his friends) to eat a pizza at their table beside us. We were all professionals in our early 30s, not exactly trouble-makers! This was the third strike for McLeans, all due to this one low-class/no-class doorman. It's sad, as the place looks ok but is often deserted at night. Don't go!
