    It was our first and last visit. Not what we expected. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary with our children but this was more like a dark sports bar with four customers in it, that appeared to be regulars. Our server wrote our order down and still got my wife’s order wrong, twice, and made it sound like it was her fault. He bought out the food in the order that it was ordered. So the the wings came out before the salads. Hmmm? The food was good, the server apologized, but we will not be returning. There are much better restaurants in Alexandria

    Restaurant does not honor OpenTable reservations. Place looked fun and perfect for the game but unfortunately does not honor reservations so was not able to eat here. Restaurant should not be on OpenTable and at the very least should note in their description that they do not take reservations on game days. Would have planned accordingly and come early to secure a table if they gave any indication.

    They went above and beyond! I planned a surprise lunch for my friend and had mentioned that in my reservation. I put in a special note asking if they could write a birthday message on their creme brulee. It’s not something they normally do but came out with it anyway! The level of service from the hostess, server and manager was above what I’ve experienced anywhere and am fully grateful to them for their help.

    Went to celebrate a friend’s birthday during restaurant week. Multiple items on the special menu were not available. The service was very poor despite us being the only table in the dining room. Had to remind waitress to pick up our drink order from bar, server had very limited knowledge of menu. Food was excellent (what they had left).

    Mackie's seems like a neighborhood place. People at the bar seemed to know each other. It wasn't packed. Good burgers and steaks. Terrible wine list considering its a bar in Old Town. Still we had fun and enjoyed our dinner. They had a good selection of brown liquors!

    First off, it's a Green Bay Packer bar, which was great to see in the area! My wife and I had their dry-aged burger and it was okay, in my opinion. Thankfully it was half off on Monday's as full price would have warranted a lower rating. Opinions are subjective but to me, it wasn't as flavorful as I would have hoped and smaller than I expected for the price. Make sure to catch the happy hour as it definitely helps with the check. Their Mackie's Red Ale was just a Leinenkugel, at leas that's what I had overheard the waitress telling the table next to me. Kinda disappointed they didn't brew there own. Atmosphere was great however if you're seated near the front door, cigarette smoke tends to make its way in and detracts from the experience for sure. Service was good and accommodating, never had to wait for anything and everyone there was very attentive. All in all a good spot for beer, sports, and hanging out!

    Went for a dinner meal with family from out of town-- burgers were delicious, Monday night 1/2 price special was pleasant surprise-- nothing fancy, which was perfect, and well suited to just grab some good food and drinks and do some catching up-- would go again.

    Food was very good. Maybe not surprising but it felt like more of a bar than a restaurant; few diners on a Tuesday night. Server didn’t check on us after the arrived so no drink refills. Great for a casual meal, but wouldn’t suggest to celebrate anything special.

    Went there for my birthday as noted on our reservation. No acknowledgement of the occasion. Service was very slow to the point that I wasn’t sure who our sever was as different people stopped by. Our order went in shortly after the table next to us. When they received their food the staff was all apologetic about the wait and offered a free desert. Ours came out later without a word. Food was just okay, probably won’t t be back as there are many other choices in the area.

    It struggle to decide if it’s a bar/saloon/dive or a steakhouse. The food was average at best. If you’re coming here for a steak dinner, you’ll have better luck somewhere else. The place was empty when we were there, and that was our first indicator. I had a steak which wasn’t too terrible but my lobster bisque wasn’t warm at all and neither was my watered down mashed potatoes.

    We had been given a certificate to Mackey’s as a wedding gift. Not knowing what to expect we headed in to enjoy the free meal. I made reservations online and we were promptly taken care of at the door. Our server was excellent—he clearly had experience likely in a higher-end setting but was very good at being the perfect amount of pleasant and competent for this restaurant. And that’s not a slam, we expected less from a “sports bar” but were pleased that it was a solid notch better. The steaks were fantastic, perfectly prepared, and I will 100% be back for some of the gnocchi side dish!!

    They are new and having some growing pains (Friday night at 630 they were already out of certain dishes and ingredients for others). But the food we ate was delicious. Some things incredibly so. the management is lovely and I will be back. Looking forward to watching Mackies blossom into a popular local eatery with more people in the dining room than the bar. Although I loved having the dining room just for my group. I never write reviews but this is going to be a winner of a restaurant. Big favorites were the mixed olives -which were in a marinade that was amazing. Wings of various types, the 12 oz hanger steak for my husband and the 6 oz for my son. Salads and the key lime pot. And the gorgeous crab cake sandwitch. Yum.

    I came in for lunch on Valentine's Day, and was seated promptly in the dining room. The staff were very professional, prompt, courteous, and attentive without being overbearing. I ordered the dry-aged burger (medium rare) with fries - it came out in a timely manor, and let me tell you that it was probably the best burger that I've ever had. The meat is so tasty and it was cooked to perfection, served in a brioche bun and comes with aged cheddar and sautéed mushrooms. DELISH! Also of note, the fries are boardwalk style and a perfect match to the burger. I left feeling full and satisfied after a great dining experience. Would definitely recommend, and I'll definitely be back.

    We have been to Mackie’s many times and have always enjoyed it - great American food with a few fun twists on the menu. We ended up here during restaurant week and honestly it was a little disappointing. Food took well over an hour getting out and one person in our group didn’t get the restaurant week menu, so he ended up waiting a very long time for a steak sandwich (however it did look quite delicious). Steak on the restaurant week menu was well seasoned, but pretty tough (even at medium temperature) - have gotten a great steak here several times before, so it may have just been the cut. The key lime pie was a hit as always. We will be back, but probably just for the regular menu when they are less slammed.

    Waited for almost 30 minutes after being seated and no one stopped by. Understand it was a busy night but don’t book a reservation if you can’t even check in on a table to let them know you’re busy. To add insult to injury, the surrounding tables were helped multiple times.

    Really enjoyed the House Tempranillo. Had a great filet and gnocchi. BF had the sirloin. Also good, but not as good as the filet. Both cooked exactly how I liked. His mashed potatoes were great too. Our waiter was a nice guy.
