Mac’s is always solid. Suffering from staffing issues as is everyone. Our server appeared to be new & struggled a bit. Nothing major.
Prime rib, steak, etc , all good!

I’ve been coming here since I was little. My friends were in town and I was so excited to take them to Sunday brunch to try all of my favorites. To say I was embarrassed is an understatement. We almost left.

When we first arrived the hostess confirmed our reservation and promptly sat us with a smile. However after 15 mins of nobody greeting the table I had to go back up to the host to grab our server. He was an older man who frankly didn’t even know the menu. As well as back handedly questioned me when I gave my order. My friend also had a modification to her omelet which he wrote down no problem… she didn’t want jalapeños or onions. Then about 25-30 minutes later he came back saying that they couldn’t do that.

We ordered poinsettias that came out garnished with older strawberries. & since it was brunch the cinnamon rolls and fruit were a major part we were looking forward to and asked for the salad as well. The salad came out missing the cheese that goes on top and the plate fruit was also squishy and older than normal.

Finally our order comes out and I ask for a condiment as did my friend, he only brought out one upon returning. So we then asked again for the additional.

Overall I was extremely let down and ashamed to have hyped up my long time childhood restaurant to my friends. The sever I guess didn’t care or didn’t think we would tip since we were younger and not dressed in the after church look. But the bussers and food runners took better care of us and actually seemed to enjoy their jobs and customers. We still tipped 20% as I’ve been in the service industry before and to hopefully teach a lesson if our looks were causation for our bad serving experience. I truly hope that this is not the new normal level of excellence for Mac’s.

Upon entering the restaurant, there was an overwhelming sewer smell. Not something you want to smell as you first enter a resultant.

There was a party of women in the next section over. It was so loud we actually could not hear each other talk even when yelling!! I don’t think there is anything Mac”s could do about it.

I was a early for my reservation but got seated immediately. However, I did not see the waiter for 20 minutes!!! I saw the waiter for all the tables around me, but not mine. I eat at Mac”s often and know this is not the usual. To top it off, I asked him to bring the check to me and he gave it to my friend!!

We eat at Mac's often and think the food and service is quite good; however, when busy, as is the case with most restaurants these days, it is noisy making conversation difficult. Kind of wish they would bring the space up to date with new furnishings, paint, etc.

This is the 2nd time I came in for brunch wanting the Eggs Benedict with the crab meat (on the menu) and they advised they were out. Very disappointing but I'll call in advance from now on to see if they have the crab. Most visits are wonderful with great food and service. Mac's is a go-to for us for celebrations and great food...

Mac's never disappoints! The goodness of the food is always consistent. The prime rib is my husband's favorite, and is cooked to perfection. I had the special, which was sea bass with crawfish tails in a buerre blanc sauce. SO tasty, flaky, fresh! The prices are very reasonable for a really nice dinner out.

While I will ALWAYS miss the open kitchen warmth of Colleyville, it's still the 'go-to' place for all important events in our life. The ka-bobs are to die for... The whole restaurant was up in arms about a bread change during the pandemic, but the food, the service, and our waitress were excellent as always. Adrian assured us the bread would be back and chatted with us after dinner, to really seal in the 'family warmth tradition' after a fantastic dinner. We always want to bottle the salad dressing, the bread, and the marinade for the ka-bobs, but we don't want to lose the quaintness of it..

5 stars all around!
