Seattle Weekly's Description

McGilvra's is an Irish pub on the northernmost end of Madison named for the man who built the street. Good for both the annual Saint Patrick's Day debauchery or dinner with the kids after a day at the lake, it serves standard pub fare - soup, sandwiches, salads - along with a few Green Isle-inspired accents, like the Guinness Beef Stew or the Irish Nachos, which are basically gussied-up cheese fries. McGilvra's also hosts poker and trivia nights, has free live music every Saturday, and discounts a handful of drinks on Thursday for Ladies' Night.
