Diner Reviews
  • "I have been to Mackenzie's Chop House about 30 times in the last fifteen years. The quality of the food and service has always been consistently excellent. It is not cheap, but it is worth it."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "We make it a point to come to MacKenzies. The food is always terrific and the wait staff is very attentive. The meats were cooked perfectly and the sides were tasty. This time we brought friends who will also be back again"

  • "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!"

  • "MacKenzie's offers consistently high quality food preparation and attentive service. Of special note was the pineapple upside-down cake with sorbet which was a great hit with us."

  • "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. "

  • "We were here from Seattle celebrating our son's graduation. This was a very good experience, the food was cooked properly, the service was excellent, and honestly we pay almost double for a similar experience in Seattle. Love the Springs! "

  • "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."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "I enjoyed the service and the food was great. They gave me a free dessert for my birthday and were very prompt with their service. "

  • "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. "

  • "We went to this restaurant despite mixed reviews from friends and from a few web sights. The martini selection was huge and the two we tried were excellent. The service was great and the food was of good quality. we will be returning in the future. "

  • "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."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "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. "
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "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! "

  • "Reservation was at 14:30 and was seated shortly afterwards. This was our first time at this restaraunt. When seated, we were not givin a drink menu, as i was going to order a beer, but was unaware of the selection avaliable. We visited the buffet and everything seemed picked through, and not had been refilled. The bread selection was sparse and hard. The crab legs were gone and over cooked along with the soggy shrimp. The beef tips and mushrooms were very good along with the prime rib. At the end of the brunch, we were handed a bill for roughly $70.75. I at this point the golden corral had a better selection than this reseraunt. I spoke with the manager and she was nice enough to reduce the bill by 1/2. I still think i paid too much."

  • "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. "

  • "MacKenzie's Chop House was the top dining experience for our group in the Springs for a reunion. The service was tops, the main dishes were quite good and the ambiance was perfect. We were seated promptly and attended to by 2 wait personnel who were friendly, professional and knew their menu. Although the bison steak was a bit tough, my 3 guests - all from out of town - thoroughly enjoyed their fish and rib selections, food plentiful enough to forego any possibility of delicious looking deserts. All in all, this restaurant gets a solid B+."

  • "We went to McKenzie's for a birthday dinner, and we could not have been more impressed! From start to finish was perfect. Apps, wine, friendly staff, and a great steak dinner. The dessert martini's were a great end to the meal. My girlfriend is from Chicago, and eats out quite a bit at steak houses, and said this was one of her favorites now! "

  • "I love to dine at MacKenzie Chop House before attending an event at the Pikes Peak Center. It starts a special evening with an elegant meal in a unique setting. One of my personal indulgences is a single malt scotch before my meal. This restaurant meets that request in full form, even though it is a "Martini menu" they feature. "

  • "My wife and I ate at MacKenzie's for our 21st Anniversary. All the staff were very professional and service was very good. The steaks were some of the best I have ever had in town. Definitely a place I would recommend and we plan on going back on other special occassions."
