Diner Reviews
  • "This is an old Colorado Springs standby. While trying to maintain it's ambience as a dark wood old boy's club it has become a bit worn and dated. Service was very attentive but not obtrusive. Food was good and well presented, but arrived stone cold. The plate was very cold to the touch and some of the sauce had begun to congeal. Good house wines"

  • "I found that everything about MacKenzie's Chop House works. It was an absolute pleasure walking through the restaurant that was rightly designed to make you feel like you are a part of it all. The kitchen was bustling within a short view of the grand foyer entrance. The cozy 2 person tables are tucked back behind the group tables and after passing by the bar area. The food was cooked to perfection. I had Colorado Rack of Lamb that was succulent and not too seasoned to get more of the meat flavor you expect to taste when trying something local. The waiter and hostesses we interacted with had a super accommodating attitude that seemed very natural. They were upbeat and happy to serve us that day. Thanks!"

  • "Really outstanding food for all four in our group and the service was consistently on top of things without being the least bit disruptive to our conversations. Our dinner conversations lasted from 6:30-11pm when they began closing up. Very enjoyable time with great food and atmosphere."

  • "My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary. What I got was not worth it. We started with drinks of course. No fountain drinks were offered and my wife asked for a wine and they waitress offered a horrible option.. We ordered an appetizer which was a decent portion (for the price) and then we placed our main order. We didn't get but 3 minutes in before the main order arrived after the appetizer, in which I felt rushed to eat. Food to price comparison was awful. Might as well gone to a chain restaurant. Overall not a great experience. Last was the noise. I felt I was at a chain restaurant and couldn't enjoy a conversation. Overall it was not the best choice to celebrate."

  • "As this was an anniversary dinner, I asked for MacK's to acknowledge it. The greeter at the door and our server did so and we were offered a complimentary dessert as well. Very nice touch. We had a monumental Porterhouse that was cooked perfectly. Well made cocktails. All that and no one wearing cut-offs / wife-beater undershirts / pajamas / hat."

  • "We had never been here, more-less knew it was a place. My good friends that like nice places and go all the time recommended it to me, when I asked for a surprise place that was nice for my boyfriend. We loved the food, he had the bison steak and could not get over how amazing it was, he said it was the best steak he ever had, and that is from a man that is picky about how his steak should be. We absolutely loved the setting it was quiet everyone around even the waitstaff were content and peaceful and seemed very passionate about making it a great experience for us. I had four people notice my coffee was low, although I didn't need anymore, it was great to see that everyone notices that when their guests are in need, they are there for us."

  • "Mackenzie's is our go to place for a nice dinner before shows at the Pikes Peak Center which is just a half a block away. We had nice booth seating, a quiet atmosphere and good prime rib and seafood dinners. It's great for special occasions."

  • "This was a great choice for a first date. However, a large group of men came in and were seated close to our table. The were loud and obnoxious and rude. It ruined the mood and the atmosphere and i cut our date short since we couldn't even speak to each other anymore because of the noise level. I know that is not something that the restaurant is responsible for but i feel the could have told them to quiet down or leave due to ruining other diners experience."

  • "My previous review for MacKenzie's was 5 stars across the board, but this lunch break was disappointing on the food front. My wife ordered the Friday special of fried shrimp and was basically satisfied, but my order of fish and chips was soaking in grease. The fish filets were great and the breading seemed to be better than most, but the grease just oozed out of it. A fried food fan I am, but this tested even my love of the oil. I'm sure they would have replaced it, as this restaurant really does try to satisfy customers, but we were running a bit late and didn't have time for a do-over. I'll probably try this dish again sometime, but will make sure I have time for a correction, if necessary."

  • "We were so disappointed in the food. The appetizer was drowned in a tasteless gravy. The French onion soup wasn't too bad. The bread was fresh and warm. Our steaks were awful. Not cooked well at all and the cuts did not seem like choice cuts. There was no seasoning on the asparagus and the rice tasted like it came from a box. With the reputation of the restaurant we really had high hopes."

  • "This was our first time in Colorado Springs and we wanted to have a nice dinner... Read the reviews and decided on Mackenzie's. Very nice place... Old school charm and atmosphere... Great service... And a wide range of steaks and seafood to choose from. Wonderful evening... We will definitely return!"

  • "I just moved back to Colorado Springs and visited McKenzies for the first time in about five years. It was a pretty disappointing experience. The steaks were just barely "OK' and the vegetables must have been steaming for hours because the carrots were yellow and the broccoli was barely green. The wine - I don't mind paying for a good bottle but three times retail is a bit much. I asked for a quiet table on the OpenTable request but got a table right next to the door. It was certainly not a meal to make me go, 'WOW!', especially when spending almost $400. I'll probably go back one more time and hopefully have a better experience. If not, the next review will be my last."

  • "They were crowded but we were seated for 20 minutes before anyone came by the table. Too bad, good food but overall, better off going elsewhere for the complete experience."

  • "We enjoyed a great anniversary dinner with our daughter a few nights ago. First off i was very impressed with the way the staff interacted with our daughter, answering all of her questions and even making suggestions as to which drink would go well with her kids meal. She had a great time. Our dinners were very good though we did need to send my wifes steak back as it was so charred on the outside you could taste nothing but the charring. The second one was cooked perfectly. Overall we were very pleased with the attentativeness of the staff and the quality of the the food and service provided. we will definately return."

  • "My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary. Made a reservation and arrived on time. Seated at our table and then waited almost ten minutes to be asked if we would like anything to drink. Our reservation was at 6pm do the restaurant was not busy. Very disappointed with the level of service. Will not be back to spend $100 for a special occasion"

  • "I had to get up & go ask for my drink. No water or bread offered. I would be more understanding if it was busy but restaurant about half full. Not likely to come back anytime soon! "

  • "Took my wife for her 28th birthday along with our 2 kids, ages 2 & 3, along with the in-laws. The service was impeccable, our server was right on point and made a nice jesture to talk to the kids everytime she came to check on our table. The food was great as our steaks were cooked exactly how we asked. Also on a side note, being that it was Sunday, it was half off martini night! My wife ordered a sidecar and it was delicious, not too strong yet not too sweet, will be going back to dine more often!"

  • "Both salads had wilted lettuce. Steak was tough. Baked potato was small and several hours old. Caesar salad had two croutons that were like gravel. Wine was great. "

  • "The steaks were wonderful and cooked exactly how they was ordered. The appetizer (artichoke dip) although it was brought to the table quickly, it was cold and the chips were stale. The salad was delicious. The lobster mac n cheese was flavorless at best. Wait staff, sure wish they had introduced themselves. I say they because I ordered my d drinksrinks from one, appetizer and salad from another and my entrée from another. Quite an experience and for the price I expected much more."

  • "Haven't been to MacKenzie's for several years, but was pleasantly surprised at the condition of the restaurant and the décor. Would clearly return in the near future. Good food selection, great service, and the prices match most any budget for good dining."

  • "My wife and I dined here somewhat reluctantly, as we had been here before and were somewhat disappointed. That all changed was our meal was delicious and the service excellent. I had the snapper fish special and my wife thought it sounded really good, but she wanted the halibut. She asked if her halibut could be prepared the same as the special and the staff was happy to do so. Neither of us left even a bite on our plate. We will definitely be back."

  • "Super filet, but the au Pauvre sauce was just a wee bit too salty. Loved the cocktails, our wine with dinner was ok - nothing special as everything upper scale was very pricey. Over all very pleased for our anniversary dinner but for the money, it'll remain special occasion only because of price."

  • "I was very disappointed with my trip here. I guess I'm a little tough on restaurants because I'm from DC. This place has been my first 'fine dining' experience since moving to CS. The food was just okay. I had the prime rib which was served to me rare after I asked for well done. I also ordered the lobster Mac which was just noodles cheese sauce and a few pieces of lobster meat. It was not baked. My husband was not impressed with the bison either. The atmosphere and decor was the saving grace of the resturant. Wouldn't go back for what I spent. "

  • "Nice place. Not too big of selection on the menu, which for me is ok. No nightly specials( that we were informed of). Lighting was a little too low for my preferred eyesight. No salad is included on any meal, but was a tasty add-on (the wedge with bacon). Everything tasted great. Servers were friendly but not annoying. Hostesses were friendly as well. "

  • "We decided to give them another try after 15 years of not going because of a bad experience. My daughter and her fiancé recommended it and MacKenzie's has definitely redeemed themselves. Dinner was great and was at a nice pace. Service and food were great and very helpful in accommodating my daighter's food allergies. Thank you for a memorable Mother's Day! "

  • "We visited this place on the recommendation of a friend, and I was less than impressed. The setting was older and not as nice as one would expect for this price point. There was a draft (likely from the window above), so we asked to be moved. The other seat was better. Service was slow and less than responsive. The server didn't offer any recommendations and they took forever to actually bring drinks and refills. The food was okay, but not great, the sides, I could have made better at home. For the price, I expected more. I've had better for a good deal cheaper. Will not return. "
