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!

Came here after a night out and the hot dogs with french fries were a perfect way to end the evening. A few drinks, bottles of water, and delicious fries? Couldn't be beat. Plus everyone was so kind and I loved ordering from my phone via Toast Tab!

Fun environment, not great food (except for the great fries). Really good outdoor seating and they often host other events like game viewing parties and drag brunch. You order off a QR code on your table.

GET THE FRENCH FRIES!!!! Easily some of the best fries I've ever had! My mouth is watering thinking about them right now! Such a great pub! If you're looking to hangout in the sun, with a cold beer, and delicious food, this is the place to go. Right in the middle of downtown Durham next to everything!

I put an order in for a beer on my phone and before I could even tell my girlfriend what I ordered it was brought out to me. Good club to relax and get ready to enjoy the night. Caution: drinks are STRONG

The outdoor space here was fantastic! The staff was really friendly and helpful. And we loved their QR code system where everything could be done at the table and closed out on our end whenever we we ready. Exceptionally dog friendly also!

The beer selection is fantastic! The bartenders are wonderful. The food is seriously always good when you consider it's a pub. And the outdoor seating is so beautiful on a warm night. Love this place.
