As someone who works downtown, I eat on 2nd ave a lot. Every time I visit McFaddens I am disappointed. They are usually out of half the items on their menu, the waitresses (are cute) but that doesn't make up for the very poor service (I ended up walking to the bar for refills every time), and the food is comparable to AppleBee's on a good day but extremely overpriced. The one dish that was OK was the fried pickles. Don't waste your time or money at this place!
Pros: Good Fried Pickles, nice TV's and cool ceiling fans
Cons: Bad food, bad service and extremely expensive!
