It was super busy because of a soccer game, but that made the environment a TON more lively! Adorable bar and outside lawn area. The food looked delicious and the clientele were so much fun! Stop on in!

Food is good, but you go for the soccer. If you want to experience the game with fans this is the place to go. The local Arsenal club meets here too for all their games.

The food was good, the service was fast and we enjoyed our drinks. Our waitress was polite. This place is popular during the evening and weekend shifts. The only downfall I didn't like was our table was not all the way clean. There were still crumbs and trash in the table booth. I had to wipe it down. Other than that it was fine.

Quite a delightful spot.The evening I went there was a brand sampling going on! Everyone got a free mix shot! Plenty of outside seating ! There’s games on the inside and the bartender Amber was awesome. She whipped me up a “kashmere” in a blink of an eye and it was delicious! The staff here are always so friendly and the music is on point 😌

First time there, had lunch. We sat inside since it was 101 degrees outside! We were thinking of bringing our dog but it was too hot to even think about sitting outside which was a good thing since there were new signs on the door saying they no longer allow pets which sort of bites (pun). The beer selection is top notch, the service was always very fast and attentive. Apparently the wooden bar is 150 years old and came from a bar in Chicago. It looked really nice.

I feel like I’m constantly on the prowl for somewhere I can go with my daughter to eat, have a beer, and sit in some shade without feeling like a pariah. Bull McCabe’s filled the bill better than I ever expected it would. It was 90+ degrees, but the fans and garden cover made it a non-issue. I meant to take a picture of my Lamb Philly, but it was so delicious, I devoured it before I could even think of pulling out my phone. My beer of choice was their Blood Orange Kolsch and it was divine. My daughter had a blast, too. Plenty of other kids around, a step stool for hand washing in the bathrooms, a diaper changing station, and clean high chairs made us all feel really welcome. Kudos to Bill McCabe’s, a new Durham staple for us!
