    Celebrated our wedding Anniversary. Liked the fact I could order flowers and have them at the table when we arrived. Still a little noisy, but didn't diminish the romance. Too busy looking at my wife to get in the way of the moment. I had seared scallop, my wife had the lamb. Presentation and preparation were spot on. Busing was very efficient. Our main server was a little intrusive, especially when he continued to want to smell the flower arrangement and was a little too casual trying to be friendly. His demeanor for a high end restaurant was a little misplaced. Would have fit in better at Old Chicago. We have always attempted to make dinner here an anniversary tradition and haven't been disappointed.

    Great food; wonderful presentation and even better service. Definitely did not leave hungry. All of our party ordered the prime rib and all of us loved it and went home with a large piece leftover.. and this was ordering the smaller cut. I will definitely be going back again and again!

    this was my second time here, and it was even better than I remembered! The service was friendly and prompt. The food and drinks were made to perfection. I think this will be our new go-to restaurant the next time we want a mouthwatering steak dinner. I also loved that there was so much to choose from on the menu, I'd love to try some of the seafood choices as well. The ambiance fit the time period of the restaurant itself, making for a very unique and memorable experience.

    First time. It was my wife's birthday, her choice. Staff was friendly. We started with a great artichoke appetizer. My wife ordered a medium prime rib and I had a Bison steak. The Bison steak, ok, more well done than medium. My wife's steak was more rare. There was enough meat around the outer edge that was cooked to her liking so she picked from that. Unfortunately she offered me some of her steak knowing that I like a good prime cooked rare-medium but I found this steak tougher to chew than a good prime should be so we left 80% of the steak uneaten. Ended with a couple of great desserts. In retrospect , we spent over $200 for a special night out. We found a friendly staff and good appetizers and desserts. Main courses were disappointing.

    My husband and I both thought our dishes were very very good food. I loved my seared scallops with chorizo hash and haricots verts. The only down side was the king crab leg I got extra - the crab was fine, but the butter dipping sauce was very tasteless. My husband loved his dry-aged steak. Definitely a great date night place.

    Very good meal, tasty and good portion sizes, but the service seemed rushed - we did not have time to enjoy a cocktail before the food started arriving. Also, there was paper covering the white linen tablecloths which made the setting seem cheap. The waitress was very helpful in removing it when we asked her to. Also the booth we were sitting in was very cramped.

    MacKenzie's is an excellent steak house, but we go for the seafood. Lobster is my wife's favorite dish. Unfortunately, you can't get it in regularly in our current home in Amarillo. So, whenever we are in CO Springs, we hit Mac's so she can do surf and turf and I can devour their amazing ciappino (sp?). Service is always attentive but unobtrusive. Atmosphere is a dark and romantic, but they also take amazing care of my 9-year-old-son. Win-win all the way around.

    We started with cocktails in the bar, and the service and ambiance were great. We moved to the the dining room after about an hour, where we had just a fantastic feast, with superb food, very little noise, perfect lighting, great background music that didnt interfere with conversation, service that was always present without being overbearing - yes we had a fantastic time.

    I went there with friends from abroad. The service was fine, the salads good. Friends wanted Bison hanger steak but after ordering,new were told it was not available. They had prime rib instead and it was good. I had a filet mignon - medium rare. It came pretty well done. The vegetables,carrots and broccoli, were awful - overlooked, probably warmed over, tasteless. All in all, a disappointment.

    We had an exceptional evening at MacKenzie's Chop House. There was a slight hiccup as we had trouble finding someone to take our wine order for dinner after it (dinner) arrived and we didn't receive our wine until we 2/3 the way through with our entrée, but management stopped by and offered us a dessert on the house and also gave us a "birthday" discount on our bill so we fell all was good. The food was delicious. We always enjoy MacKenzie's and will go back again and again.

    Although the food was good there was a large group of people right next to us that was so obnoxious and loud it ruined the whole experience and we left early. I know this is not the fault of the restaurant but they could have moved us or asked the group to quiet down. Overall I would not go back

    We were 1st timers at this chop house and the food was impressive (especially for Colorado Springs which is not noted for great restaurants). We both had the bone-in rib eye steaks and they were cooked to perfection. The sides of mashed potatoes and broccoli were of sufficient portions and done nicely as well. Good ambiance away from the bar. Was somewhat pricey (about $100 for 2 people and only 1 glass of wine) so It will just be a special occasion place for us.
