If haute cuisine is what you seek, Las Vegas has no shortage of fine dining establishments to appease you. Sometimes though, you just want to grab a beer in a place full of eye candy and fun, and that’s where McFadden’s comes in. Located in the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino, the restaurant and saloon combines the elements of a classic pub with a Vegas-appropriate nightlife scene. Like its sister restaurant in New York’s Time Square, McFadden’s has a fun and friendly wait staff, ample TV screens for sports viewing, and plenty of tasty offerings to keep you blissfully full, inebriated, or both.
While watching the game or enjoying cocktails with friends, guests can enjoy a variety of high quality bar food favorites in the range of appetizers, soups and salads, entrees, burgers and sandwiches, pizza, and desserts. If you’re just looking for a light bite to go along with a Guinness, McFadden’s wide range of starters will satisfy your need wonderfully, ranging from Chicken Tenders and Buffalo Wings to Irish Nachos (homemade potato chips smothered in cheese, bacon bits, and green onions with a side of ranch) and Crab Cakes.
However, a relaxing and satisfying sit-down dinner can also be had at McFadden’s. A few popular entrees from across the pond include Fish and Chips, Irish Lamb Stew, and the signature Shepherd’s Pie. An Irish staple, the Shepherd’s Pie is a hearty treat of slow cooked ground beef in gravy with peas and mashed potatoes, all topped with cheese. American classics like New York Strip Steak and Pan Seared Halibut also make tasty meals. Meat lovers will definitely want to try the BBQ ribs; slow cooked St. Louis ribs grilled and basted with McFadden’s special homemade BBQ sauce and served with French fries and coleslaw, the ribs are a favorite among regulars.
Combining a cozy Irish pub feel with a vibrant nightlife, McFadden’s is the perfect place for any kind of celebratory gathering or casual evening out on the town. Dueling pianos on some nights provides fun and simple entertainment, and two bars offering 24 beers on tap ensures that your night will never be dry. Offering generous portions at a reasonable price in a friendly atmosphere, McFadden’s is your place for good times guaranteed.
