McGillycuddy’s traces its heritage back to Murphy "Gilly" McGillycuddy, a mythic figure who, on his deathbed, touted "relations, whiskey, bacon, cold beer … and this stone" as the keys to life. The stone in question was not Ireland's fabled Blarney Stone, but the Gilly Stone, which, like Bon Jovi's hair, promises good fortune to anyone who brushes up against it. The stone now rests in the beer garden of the Water Street pub, an Irish watering hole whose success only amplifies the stone's considerable legend. Irish-American cuisine, including Guinness-soaked bratwurst and beer-battered fish, tackles taste buds on a covered patio or in the wood-accented interior, where pride for the Green Bay Packers colors every corner. Ample enough to comfortably cradle up to 200 revelers, McGillycuddy’s party room comes with its own catering menu and happily hosts large- or small-scale gatherings and luncheons.
