A staple in both Tampa and St. Petersburg, MacDinton’s is the area’s most popular Irish bar for happy hours, drink specials, live entertainment, soccer/sporting events, and amazing nights out.
MacDinton’s patrons return again and again because each location prides itself on providing fantastic service, a warm friendly atmosphere, and making every person feel welcome. Always delivering great Irish hospitality in a fresh and modern way, both MacDinton’s locations offer traditional Irish dishes along with classic bar and grill foods, sporting events, and great entertainment.
MacDinton's opened in May 2002 and most of our patrons have frequented the place since then, some becoming part of the furniture! The reason is we pride ourselves on fantastic service, a warm friendly atmosphere and always making you feel welcome.

Recommended Ratings & Reviews
Fun, young crowd. Thursdays are huge for $1 beer night & karaoke. Friday happy hour gets pretty hectic.
Pros: Fun in a group. Cheap beer on Thursdays. Fun karaoke in the back.
Cons: College kids who don't know how much alcohol they can handle.
Natalie always provides great service whenever I’m there. Great place to go for a Friday night
Pros: Awesome staff
MacDinton's is my weekend spot! For UT students and young professionals alike it's a place to forget the stress of a long week! Thursday night- Dollar Beers. Friday Night- 4 Hour AYCD happy hour. It's THE BAR to check out when you come to Tampa!
Pros: You can drink a lot for cheap! Always has good music and a large crowd!
One of the most popular nightlife locations in South Tampa. MacDinton's is a long time favorite of mine, but don't go out expecting a quiet evening. It's a local hot spot and is always packed.
Wednesday NIghts and Friday Evening is where MacDinton's the most packed with people socializing! Love the atmosphere!
Pros: Bartenders remember you when you go there enough!
Pros: Best place to watch soccer in Tampa bay
Great food and an Irish twist on some of not so traditional Irish fare. Love the Irish chicken curry dish.
Great spot to grab a drink but I guarantee you will love the traditional menu if you don't partake in a few libations;)
Had a terrible bar woman. As she didn't understand how to process my card became aggressive and then oroceeceeded to show her body behind the bar whilst shouting expletives. One of the regulars stated that she is probably on drugs. After not fully understanding how to process a card she then threw it at me saying we don't care about your money. The management were better and after I asked they proceed my card in seconds.
Pros: Management seem good and good atmosphere.
Cons: You need to fire your bar staff who abuse substances.
Great place for drinks with friends. Great food too
