About McGonagall's Steakhouse and Restaurant
A LITTLE HISTORY....
William Topaz McGonagall was a Scottish Poet famous in the late 1800’s. He wrote over 200 Poems during his lifetime, and is notoriously known to have written some of the worst in literary history! His most famous poem was written in praise of a banquet which he attended in Inverness in 1894, to which the following lines admiring Inverness, are from:
Oh, magnificent city of Inverness,
And your beautiful river, I must confess,
With it’s lovely scenery on each side,
Would be good for ones health there to reside.
And in praise of them I must say
I never received better treatment in my day,
Than I received from my admirers in Bonnie Inverness.
This, upon my soul and conscience, I do confess.
We were a party of five for lunch, We all had a two course for £9.95 unless you have a steak then there will be a £3.95 supplement. The food was of good quality and very nice we all enjoyed ourselves and will go back again.
Locale centralissimo, non molto grande ma tranquillo visti gli spazi ben distribuiti. Personale molto gentile e servizio attento e veloce. Carne cotta alla perfezione, come da richiesta, abbastanza buona. Mio marito ha ordinato una T-bone ed è rimasto un po' deluso dal fatto che il mio filetto (12oz) fosse più grande. Proporrei di vendere a peso anche la T-bone.
Excellent, steaks cooked perfectly, attentive service, prices much the same as other similar places. Definitely go back
Absolutely faultless ! Warm welcome , a little early for our reservation but seated immediately. Quick drink order then food . I ordered a T-bone my wife a chicken dish . She said hers was delicious the chips were like small roast potatoes they were that crispy . My steak was cooked to perfection . You never fail to impress every time we dine here . We both had sticky toffee pudding for a sweet, so light yet so very gorgeous. Many thanks we had a great night and will be back as soon as we’re back in Inverness .
Ok but for the prices you don’t get much on your plate. Rib eye steak was good but came with only a few mushrooms and a tomato, chips were extra and didn’t get many. Wife had fish and chips, not particularly tasty. Friend had s steak, it was good, his wife had chicken which was a bit dry, she didn’t order a sauce with it. Overall it was ok wouldn’t rush back but also wouldn’t discount the place completely. Staff were attentive and friendly.
No Fillet steaks left! In a steak house? What we did get was undercooked sirloin.
We have returned to McGonagall's with apprehension, our previous visit was disappointing from the food to the service and atmosphere ,thankfully there have been big improvements, the Steaks were very tender and full of flavour ,nice crunchy tasty chips ,only down side was the rump steak was too small ,and I had the largest size, I was still hungry afterwards , my wife had the fillet which she really enjoyed . we both were concerned that the plates were cold and the room was still slightly cold , however the staff were very helpful this time and we would go back again .
Brilliant all round, amazing food!
Great food as usual and cooked to perfection.
Group booking for 17 with a set menu. Good variety of choice and everyone in the group extremely enjoyed the food. Big talking point from our visit to Inverness. Would visit again without question.

An excellent meal. A special thanks to the manager and team for preparing a fantastic special order at relatively short notice. Will definitely be back. Gordon & Claire
