Our server, Alison, was attentive to our needs without hovering, perfect for my husband and I's date night. The food was prepared to perfection, with larger portions than we'd anticipated. We've already sent a few friends to try out the rack of lamb and steaks.

We had a great meal - my sea bass was fabulous and in Colorado that is no small thing. We do not drink alcohol and there was no pressure to order any or disappointment shown by our server - we were treated as valued customers.

Very friendly server and on top of service the whole meal. Didn't feel smothered nor abandoned. The food was great (shrimp in the shrimp cocktail were slightly overcooked, but still delicious and the cocktail sauce ... amazing). We had the rack of lamb and the rib-eye. Both were cooked perfectly and seasoned well.

We frequently dine here prior to Pikes Peak Theater performances. And the dinners have always been wonderful. But not so much on 8 Nov 17. We enjoyed the usually good service (thanks, Oscar), but that night the kitchen was really off. We asked that the salad be divided, and it was. But with no salad dressing. My wife's plate had been stacked on some other salad, so its dressing was coated on the bottom of her plate. Yum. And the entrees - prime rib and bison - were underwhelming. The only redeeming item was the wine. Come on, MacKenzie's. Your pedigree is better than that. Step up to your reputation. BTW, we'll continue to come back, but hoping dinner will be like we used to enjoy.

Their filet mignon is perfecct. Tender and melts in your mouth. Love the truffle frittes and enjoyed the mussel appetizer. The oysters were fresh with this great cucumber sauce that was unique and quite tasty. Only complaint was...shells pieces broken onto the oysters themselves, so when you ate one you at to pick shells out of your mouth. Oscar was a great, attentive server and enjoyed talking with the bartender before dinner.
I highly recommend MacKenzies!

Not nearly as good as the first time. Too dark in the fireplace room. Duck dish with meatballs tasted like ground turkey. Crime brûlée sugar top was burnt. A woman sent back her steak that was too rare and by the time her table of 6 was finished her steak came back. Very disappointing!

We look forward to the great steaks. The 8oz fillet is our go-to dinner. Cooked to perfection! We were disappointed when they stopped serving a veggie side with their meals, but the salads are great and a family style vegetable is perfect for four to share.

We finished our meal with the sticky bread pudding which was very good.

We will be back for sure.

Wonderful dining experience was had at MacKenzie's Chop House on a Thursday evening before the Kris Kristofferson concert at Pikes Peak Center! From the ability to reserve a table on Open Table to their hostess seating us right on time, our dinner started out just right. Service was top-notch during the whole dinner from salads through entrees to dessert! The food was excellent, the bleu cheese cobb salad very tasty, seafood especially perfectly seasoned, temperature and portion size spot on. Will be back very soon to enjoy other menu items!

The service was not great. When one of us wanted a smaller cut of the pork chop, he was told it was not possible. A 12-oz pork chop is way too huge for one person. Also, we felt the wine was overpriced. The Argula salad had too much dressing on it. Very few options for vegetarians. I forgot my credit card that night. Seems like the wait staff would have noticed the card was left on the table prior to our departure? All-in-all, we probably won't be back.

Mackenzies serves great steaks and seafood with creative accompaniments and salads. I particularly enjoy their weekly menu items, which demonstrate creativity on a par with any "foodie" restaurant, yet holding its own as a chop house. The servers are enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I have dined there frequently; it never disappoints.

Even so the window tables were all open!!!!

Terrible experience. Server "suggested" a change to EVERY item I selected from cocktail appetizer to entree. Ordered a Makers Mark for myself and guest and was told their well whiskey was far superior. Everything was an upsell or inept service. Insisted a change to appetizer for more expensive selection. Ordered our entree and selected an Italian wine which I have enjoyed many times. Was told their Napa Valley selection was far superior and of course $10 or $15.00 more.Server solicited another cocktail with our appetizer which we ordered- only to find another server bringing our entree long before our second cocktail. Told him to cancel the cocktail- he said he couldn't if already poured. Told him to return entrees to kitchen.
Entree was served less than luke warm. Without reliving other grievances and disappointments, suffice it to say EVERYTHING was an upsell and disastrous service.
Food was unimpressive but would have rated a better review had it been presented at proper temp and professional manner. WORST SERVICE IVE EVER EXPERIENCED WITH EVERY SELECTION I MADE DISCREDITED IN PLACE OF A HIGHER PRICED ITEM.
