We have had dinner at Mac's many times, but never brunch. All 4 of us ordered a different item, but some type of eggs benedict. They were ALL delicious! And the cinnamon rolls and fruit at the beginning were a very nice treat. We will definitely be returning.

We love the food at Mac's and know it is a noisy place. The service was great. One small part of my order was incorrect and I should have said something because I did not finish my salad because it was swimming in dressing. We were disappointed that there was not space between each table and every person but one we saw walking to and from their tables after being seated, were not wearing their masks like the establishment says they should. Other than that it was great. We hadn't been in over a year and may wait awhile before going back due to crowds, spacing and masks.

This was our first visit but it won’t be our last! The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. Our waiter Ahmeen was attentive and friendly. It was a perfect anniversary date setting.

The food and Mac’s is always good. The menu is consistent with a couple of specials every night. The service is also consistently good. My only complaint is that it is an extremely noisy restaurant.

A different dessert for the birthday person would be nice. Maybe their choice off the dessert menu? A scoop of vanilla with chocolate and pecans is for children.

We love Mac’s Bar & Grill. It is one of our go-to places for celebrations within our extended family. This dining experience was to celebrate two birthdays in the family. Food was great, service was great... the only thing that detracts somewhat from the overall enjoyment is the noise level. Great place to eat.

Every place that has top-of-the-line food and service has an off night. I will keep coming to Mac's as I have been a loyal diner since 1990 but hope their quality of steak & bartender gets better.

Was somewhat disappointed with my steak. I ordered it med-well but was served rare. The cut was good but the meat was somewhat chewy possibly due to being rare. We most always leave Mac's thinking the cost of the meal wasn't worth the price we paid.

The noise level was extremely high. The people at our table were shouting to each other in order to be heard. I'm not sure I want to go back there.

Awful service. We were seated & then promptly ignored. 20 minutes no set up, no drink orders. When I flagged the young manager down & explained we had not seen a waiter, he very rudely told me “the waiters are busy” and then turned around and left in a huff. We were astonished by this behavior. 10 minutes later the waiter shows& he was nice. This is now a pattern at Mac’s. I was in there for lunch a few months ago and we were ignored then too. My sister had to get up from the table & look for a waiter. What’s with your manager? Why aren’t they helping the wait staff and why are they so rude when you ask for a drink order? Do better

They were a little short staffed. They were unfortunately just bombarded in a small window of time. The owner was working hard for his customers which speaks volumes. Always great food and service.

Terrible service with long wait time. After waiting 30 minutes for bread and drinks we had to ask water boy to bring us bread. Drinks took way to long to come and I had to tell manager and still waited to long. My wife said her steak was overcooked and tasted like lighter fluid. Waitress was nonexistent and the drinks tasted like sugary sweet kid drinks. My food was good.

Food and service was excellent as always. The COVID table spacing and service protocols were observed. Dining at 5 PM on a weeknight was not crowded and the noise level was quite low. By the time we finished at 6:20 PM, the restaurant was filling up. Reservations are recommended as long as occupancy limits are imposed.
