Fibber McGee's.. A céad fáilte!



On a cold and rainy day a few weeks ago we arranged to have lunch at Irish pub and steakhouse Fibber McGee's in Leederville. I had heard many times how hearty the food and Irish welcome was and as it's been on the agenda for quite a while when the opportunity arose I was in like Flynn! Despite the Irish colloquialism 'pog mo thoin' above the bar, the myth lived up to the legend :) Fires burning in the dining room, pastry on my steak pie puffed to perfection, generous portions.. and the icing on the cake, yes we did have cake :) the waiters spoke with a delightful Irish lilt. I enjoyed it so much I'm looking forward to an encore! Happy Sunday, take care and stay safe...

  7. All that and a waiter with an Irish accent - perfect for a chilly day! I'm planning on dining out on a patio tomorrow to take advantage of the warm weather we are still having, Grace!

  9. Wow, that name brought back some memories. My mom and dad used to talk about an old-time radio show they used to listen to called Fibber McGee and Molly. That steak pie looks delicious. I used to go to an Irish pub in Minneapolis years ago when my work took me to that city and I loved it. Such great and hardy food.

  10. Looks like a very inviting place and I see you had mushy peas too. Why was Leederville ringing a bell for me? Ah, first station on the northern train line.

  11. A fine Irish Pub is difficult to find in this part of the USA. Fibber McGee's looks like a fantastic place.

  12. Grace, you are not old enough to remember Fibber McGee and Molly on the radio. Ah yes, this was before TV. Molly's line was always, "McGee, don't open that closet." Disaster always followed. At least the name lives on with an Irish pub.

  16. Looks like my kind of grub. I wonder how many Irish pubs there are around the world compared to the number in Ireland.
