I was just searching for a nice place to relax after a crazy day at work and found one near my hotel, Mackey's Public House. This was a great place to read the newspaper, listen to some great music, have a wonderful dinner, and drink some good beer.
Found a place to collapse, and I ordered a Smithwicks. Then got a menu and it looked wonderful. There were a lot of good things.
I first noticed the potato cheddar soup and I had to have that to start my meal. I then found the entree's and had to have the Shepard's Pie. I was going to get the bowl of soup, but the waitress recommended I just get the cup. I was glad I did.
The soup was delicious. It had a good flavor and hit the spot. But a cup was enough and a bowl would have been too much.
The main dish arrived and I ordered another beer, this time a Guinness.
The shepard's pie was wonderful. It was warm and tasteful. It was full of meat and vegetables. And it was quite tasteful with the Guinness.
After all this, I needed something sweet and I migrated to the bread pudding. This was good and hit the spot. It had a good consistency.
This was the perfect spot to relax after a long day and recharge your batteries. If you are looking for a place to hang out with friends or just relax, check out Mackey's Pub on L Street in the Northwest area of Washington, DC.
