McGinnis' Irish PubAtmosphere. Friendliness. Great food and drinks!


When Sandy Baker’s 4th great-grandparents James B. and Martha Bridget Wilson McGinnis emigrated from County Derry and eventually settled in Venango County around 1777, little could they have known that more than 200 years later, an Irish pub would be established just a few miles from their final resting place,
bearing the McGinnis family name.

The McGinnis surname is the anglicized form of the Gaelic Mag Aonghuis “sonn of Aonghus”. It is the surname of a chieft ain family in western County Down, where they held a seat from ancient times.

It is our hope that McGinnis’ Irish Pub and Grill will delight you with its authentic ambience, food and Irish “Craic” – fun, music, and drink – as we welcome you as you would be welcomed in Ireland, with the traditional “Céad Mile Fáilte”.

What makes a good pub?

What makes a good pub is purpose and spirit. They are the secular heart of the community, where those of any class or generation can meet and socialise on something approaching the same level. In a good pub there is community of strangers and friends. Drink is also important because it means that all there have come with the same purpose in mind: to engage in social activity and let go of their inhibitions.
