Fodor's Review

For longevity alone, McGillin's can stand proud. Open continuously since 1860, it remains the oldest such watering hole in the country. But don't assume it's all powdered wigs and wooden flasks—in recent years the joint has installed many flat-screen TVs to go with their monster karaoke nights and continuously updating Twitter account. You can try locally brewed beer here; they have everything from Yards to Flying Fish, in addition to a good-sized list of imports.
