Silverton’s McIntyre’s Pub Is Now Officially Mac’s Pub
The changes were subtle at first, however now the renovations are complete and Silverton has a newly revamped neighborhood hang, Mac’s Pub!
The beloved McIntyre’s Pub, at 1747 Hooper Avenue in Toms River, had made the Anchorage Square Plaza it’s home since moving operations from Route 37 nearly a decade ago. Original owners Gerry McIntyre and Jim Reynolds had built the already successful pub into a staple of the Silverton community. This year they felt it was time to hand over the reigns, and enjoy some relaxation. However, it was important to the duo to keep the quality and sense of a neighborhood bar where people could meet, eat, and drink. So what better thing to do, than to sort of “keep it in the family”.
Mac’s Pub is born.
Local entrepreneur Patrick Lynch and girlfriend, longtime McIntyre’s employee, Genesia Apa had been searching for a place to open their dream of a great neighborhood bar and restaurant. Lo and behold, the timing worked out. Suddenly, before you new it, earlier this year it was announced that McIntyre’s was being sold to the pair! Furthermore, after the sale, the couple went to work. Pouring time sweat and money into revamping McIntyre’s in to their vision. A more modern Irish Pub, without losing the charm of the original place.
Making it their own.
The renovations were done smart, but expeditiously. Minimizing downtime by keeping the pub open as much as possible while renovation was being done bit by bit. From the new floor, to the new ceiling. New modern shiplap style walls, professional bar lighting and sound. Furthermore, the couple added even more HD TVs. This gives the place a sports bar feel while keeping it warm and inviting. Finally the menu was tweaked. All the old favorites remain, with some exciting new additions, like bbq ribs, meatloaf, and more. The town wide favorite mussels are still on the menu, however now they can be added to pizza for a one of a kind experience. Speaking of the pizza, they now offer gluten free crust, opening up the menu to even more hungry Silvertionians.
There was only one thing left to do, to make it official…
Last week, one of the final touches was put on the new Mac’s Pub. Literally. A brand new beautiful sign was erected on the top of the building. The new marquee let’s everyone driving by on Hooper Avenue that Mac’s Pub is here to stay. Good luck Pat and Genesia!
