Where We Get it:

Quality Ingredients

McKays Public House believes in providing our island community with quality food to match our quality of life. We proudly work with our local and organic farmers to provide the highest quality of produce, beef, lamb, chicken, and fish. This provides our guests the freshest possible creatively prepared food. It is this personal relationship with our fishermen and farmers that carries through with our attentive relationship with our guests.
