I used to frequent McFaddens pretty frequently, particularly as a go-to place for a good meal at a reasonable price before a hockey game. I went there last evening though and this was definitely my final trip there. Just awful experience. My party was seated within 5 minutes - so far so good. Our server was pleasant and tried to be attentive. However, she was spread across at least twice as many tables as a single server can reasonably cover, so her ability to check in with us was hampered. I don't fault her for any of the adverse experience though. The management there should be completely scrapped. it took an hour for our food to arrive and each person in my party had a very simple meal that should have taken at most 10 minutes to make. The server confirmed that they had only 1 cook working and he was covering the entire restaurant. The establishment was filled at every table, so obviously this was horrible planning on the management's part. When the food finally arrived, it was not what I had come to expect. I and one of my party ordered our old favorite - the fish and chips. The price had come up about $3/plate on this meal, but hey, whatever. However, when it was delivered we had half of the fish pieces over before and less than 1/4 of the fries. The coleslaw was horrible, too - and that used to be my favorite part. The portions used to be too big but this was an insane swing in the opposite direction to couple with a significant price hike. $16.99 for a kid-sized meal from McDonalds. The fish was also undercooked. The 3rd member of my party ordered a chicken club. It came out with this 1/4 inch thick triangle of chicken jerky that he literally had to take the bun off in order to find. The bun was 2 inches thick in total. Suffice it to say he got bread with a hint of chicken flavoring. Because of how horribly inefficient the service was, at this point we have 15 minutes until our hockey game started. We alerted the server to our concerns when going to pay the bill. She immediately engaged the manager, but after 10 minutes we had to flag her down to find out what was going on - we still hadn't received a receipt to sign. She server informed us that the manager decided not to charge us but should have been by. He never appeared. Upon departing we found him hanging out on the back patio bar area, chatting and laughing with people that were obviously his friends. I haven't had such a poor experience at any restaurant in recent memory. Stay away from this place - it used to be pretty decent but has completely fallen apart. While waiting for our food we observed much the same with other patrons - very unhappy faces and a few groups that just walked out in disgust without having gotten food served.
Granted, the service wasn't as fast as I would have liked. Then again, I went in there right before a Coyotes game and people were packed in there tighter than sardines. Despite that, we got a table immediately and when all was said and done we weren't there much longer than about 40 minutes.
McFadden's is the best bar in Wesgate without a doubt. My friends and I were treated like VIP all night. We received perfect service from the beautiful waitresses to the top notch bartenders. Anything we wanted we got. The DJ was great kept the party going all night. It was a great place to hang out and have a good time. They have great prices on drinks and deals all night long. I was on their happy hour list so I got free drinks!! What could be better than that? Next time anyone goes in, they should definitely ask how to get onto that list. McFadden's staff did a great job providing a great experience that my friends and I will never forget.
Mcfaddens in west gate gets a bad reputation and i don't see how they are nice prompt and fun. Food was great and hot. I am going back 100%
So i got here last weekend i think Friday around 8pm got seated right away and the sever was right there within 2 or 3 min( which i was surprised about because the restaurant was full. I do have to say the sever was awesome she was very helpful, fun and seamed genuine. My wife and I ended up choosing the salmon filet and top sirloin ( med rare) my stake was the best stake i have ever had at a bar. My wife's salmon was cooked perfect and rice had wonderful flavor. Let you know the food was hot and fresh! She also went a step a further to recommend the best dessert ( white chocolate mousse cake). We ended up sticking around for a few drinks and ended up staying till close. Around 10pm Mcfaddens throws a pretty crazy party.( had a blast)
Always a good time when my friends and – can you say a good freakin time!!! a few of my friends and myself went to mcfaddens a couple weekends ago and had a blast. The DJ was spinning some good tunes, the place was full of good looking girls, the bartenders were bad ass, good strong drinks, not to mention the bikini contest. One of the bartenders had us fill out a comment card for a chance to win a free happy hour. of course i was like yeah whatever but i filled it out anyways... low and behold about a week later i got a phone call inviting me back this saturday for free drinks from 9-11 and my friends got $2 drinks... "yes would you like to come down for a couple hours worth of free drinks next saturday?" let me think about that for about 1.6 seconds.... how could you turn that down? so yes i will be going back and recommend that others also go check the place out. its a good time and its pretty bad ass
i arrived just in time to catch the opening kick off of the Denver / Pittsburgh game and noticed i could pretty much see the game from any part of the Restaurant which was good because i arrived before my friends and wasn't sure as to how many would be joining me so this made it easy for us to find a place to watch the game together. I sat down and my drink order was taken right away i placed an appetizer order and my food was out in a matter of minutes as a matter of fact i noticed food was coming out quickly for everyone around me, my friends placed there food orders and again out hot and fast. It was some of the better food Ive had at a bar during a game. the drinks kept coming and our waitress took great care of us, as we did have to be those people who split checks;( sorry. but our waitress took great care of us anyway. We will be back!!
Service was tremendous. Our server was very attentive and kind. I had the pit burger and it was awesome. My wife had the Philly Cheesesteak. Though it had great flavor it was too dry. Price is o.k. I think for typical pub style food it could be a little cheaper. We would return for sure.
I've only been here when its a "club" so no review on the food. On a friday and sat night this place is packed...plus only place i know where i can dance on the bar.
