  • "This was our second time eating here. The first time was about a year ago and it was great. The food was not as good this time."

  • "We have been to MacKenzie's several times for dinner. Even with early reservations we always seem to get the worst table in the place. We were seated in a booth next to the air conditioning vent. We did complain to our wait staff about how cold it was and she states it was always cold in that booth due to the vent placement. There was no offer to move us and the restaurant was still pretty empty at that time. The booth was also next to a table with a large loud party and a crying baby. That is the second time we have been seated next to large parties and crying babies. Between the crying babies and freezing we don't know that we will be rushing back any time soon. Couldn't wait to get out of there, didn't even stay for dessert."

  • " Mackenzie's was recommended by Spring Hills Suites in CO Springs. We enjoyed Oysters Rockefeller ( chef special) as our starter. Frankly, they were so good we could of ordered more and just made a meal out of them. The oysters were followed by onion soup and a blue cheese wedge both of which were very good. Our dinner consisted of Airline chicken (chef special) and a Cowboy Ribeye. We had left overs. All segments were served with style. I recommend you ask for Kelly and Sara. Service was like clock work and my pet peeve - we had time to enjoy every course of our meal. We were never rushed. They both were well versed in all items on the menu and we followed Kelly's favorite recommendations. Service and atmosphere were top shelf."

  • "Vegetables not cooked well. And not fresh. Meat not prepared to order. Mashed potatoes were good though. Too expensive for quality of food."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Our service was wonderful, but the food was mediocre. My steak was way over cooked, but they made it right. My husbands lamb was undercooked. The vegetables were also under cooked, and we like crunchy."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Food was ok. Nothing really outstanding. We had multiple servers. They were very quick but at one point we had two servers at the same time asking us if we needed anything. It was very noisy. Mostly due to other loud guests, not much could be done about that. However it made us anxious to eat our meal and leave."

  • "was our first time dining here - the calamari appetizer was the worst we've ever had - just salty breading. My prime rib had a lot of fat... Every one else's meal was great and the service was great... not sure I'd return tho"

  • "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."

  • "I ordered The Basil poblano tortellini, it Was awful!!!! Full of oil,it wasnt good at all!! The best part of it is The wines And martini's choices!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "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"

  • "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!"
