Main Street has a new pub in Katie Mac's, which is providing a new place for people looking to have a great meal with the kids, a cold pint or a Sunday filled with football.
The new Mount Kisco bar, which has replaced O'Malley's, is in a category of its own. Part Irish Pub, part sports bar and part family restaurant, it is a reflection of its owners: Bobby, Brendan, and Brian McMahon. The three brothers always wanted to open up a place of their own. Raised in Carmel, NY, the three are civil servants who have or still worked as firemen in New York City. Bobby, the oldest brother, is a retired firefighter who worked in Harlem, while middle brother Brendan has worked in Harlem for 16 years. Brian, who is the youngest, is a 10-year Washington Heights fireman. The McMahons come from four generations of firemen; their father, Bob Senior, is a retired firefighter who worked in the Bronx.
According to Brendan, the McMahon's are hard working, family people. And Yankees fans. They represent the type of crowd that Katie Mac's hopes to welcome; "hard working people that are taking the train every day, walking by," who can "come in, have a pint and something to eat."
The menu features appetizers all under $10.00 (mostly under $8.00) and bottles of beer cost $3.50. However, happy hour, which runs Monday through Friday from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m., cuts the price of well drinks down to $3.00.
Katie Mac's is open every day at 11 a.m. for lunch, keeps the grill fired until 10 p.m. and will stay open until 4 a.m. for a late-night crowd. On Sundays during football season, the bar's 17 television screens will host games, games and more games. The McMahons plan to host a crowd of Jets fans (preferred customers), Giants fans and any other fans each weekend. Saturdays will be devoted to college football games. Before the season starts, the bar is offering the chance for interested parties to hold their fantasy football drafts in the Wi-Fi friendly back room; food, drinks and table service will be provided.
On Friday and Saturday nights, the sports bar will embrace its Irish Pub side. According to Brian, Irish sessions bands, one man acts and a DJ will make for "a good atmosphere and late night fun." Katie Mac's will also host a steak/prime rib night and a barbeque night. Brian promises that "there will always be people [there] welcoming you and greeting you."
The cover of Katie Mac's menu sums up the overall niche that the bar/restaurant fills. The bar's name, represents good family and is named after Bobby's oldest daughter, "the first female McMahon in a long time." The bar's mascot, a cluricaun, captures good fun; on the front cover, the lazy leprechaun is pictured hanging out, not causing any trouble and enjoying his pint. The bar's menu exemplifies good food; entrée choices range from delicious wraps (Bobby's recommendation) to hangar steaks (Brendan's pick). Top it off with an ice cold beer, a game of pool, some live music, and a sports talk with an FDNY fireman and you'll be happy you walked into Katie Mac's.
Katie Mac's is located at 30 E. Main St.
