The food is great, but the Hostess is so great at this restaurant. She is gracious; she remembers our names; and she is always there promptly to take us to the table. What a great first impression!

We have lived here for 3 yrs and waited for a special occasion to dine in the restaurant, we have head great reviews from friends and family members...but, i have to say that the food was “NOT-up-to-Par”! I ordered the Bone-in Ribeye medium. The outer rim of the steak was great, but the center of the steak was cold, the mashed potatoes were very “lumpy and without any taste” . I refuse to send a steak back to be “recooked on the Grill”. It should have been prepared correctly the first time!
The restaurant as a whole was a great experience, but the food wasn’t! We will not dining at your restaurant again.

Went for 31st anniversary. My Bison steak was cooked perfectly and hot when served. It wa delicious. My wife's New York Strip was cold, bland, and not juicy, although it was cooked correctly. Wished it could have been perfect for anniversary. They got half of it perfect.

MacKenzie’s is your traditional steak house. The bartenders are great and know how to make a great dry martini. Server, Harmony was very good and attentive. The food was delicious aside from the French onion soup..broth thick and too much sherry.

Service and ambiance were great but the food (filey mignon and American Wagyu) was overpriced for what it was. On the bright side, the beef and brie appetizer and mushrooms (side) were very good.

Went for my wife's birthday. Service was great and the staff was very friendly. Biggest complaint is with the price. Just don't believe the quality of food justifies the cost. Don't get me wrong, food tasted great. Just don't believe the value is right.

My wife and I always go to MacKenzie's for dates and anniversaries. Last night we decided to go for my birthday. Upon arriving we were greeted by a very nice smiling younger hostess who checked us in for our reservation and said it would be a few minutes because we were early. The older hostess next to her decided she needed to rudely clarify that it would be "closer to 730" which was when our reservation was, it was 708 and we got sat at 715 so her comment was not needed and was presented in a very rude manner. We got sat in the smallest booth ever which was extremely uncomfortable but that happens sometimes. Our waitress acted annoyed when she started her service for us and then was non existent the rest of the night. I normally love this place and brag about it to all my friends as being a reasonable place for an amazing steak with great service. Last night was not a representation of that restaurant.

Delicious French Onion soup served in cast iron skillet.... yummy home made garlic bread baked with garlic cloves in it. Lower star rating due to NY steak ordered medium & came medium well...also meal not hot & baked potato seemed warmed up & not fresh baked. We've always had wonderful meals here & were surprised - thinking food not brought out asap after cooked The manager took the steps off our bill which we appreciated since little of it was consumed/not enjoyed.

My husband’s steak was tough. Our friend’s drink was weak. I’m a vegan and there was limited options. The table was cramped. We’ve had good experience at MacKensies in the past but this time was not good.

I'm a fan of MacKenzie's, but I think the receipt needs to be compared to menu prices before paying. This visit and the last had pricing discrepancies. Everything else is close to superb, other than when we are seated at a cocktail table for dinner. Not cool when the restaurant isn't close to full and we had a reservation .

We had a fantastic time! Highly recommend going on ‘wine lover’s Wednesday’ for excellent prices on wine - each bottle priced under $99 is half price.
Excellent food; the steak was cooked perfectly to order, the sides were delicious. This is a meal we will be pleasantly reminiscing about for a long time. I think I can easily say that MacKenzie’s is the best steakhouse in town!

This was my 3rd Thanksgiving dinner at MacKenzie's Chop House in the last 5 years. The first two times, the experience was impressive in everyway, but something went wrong this year. Before I begin, I want to say that the staff was very friendly and very attentive.

We were seated at a booth in a depressingly dark area of the restaurant and the seat was too low or the table too high which made eating awkward and uncomfortable. I imagine the lighting (or lack of it) was intended to be romantic, but I want to point out that it's hard to feel romantic or even very adult when the table/seat configuration makes you feel like a toddler, lol.

The real tragedy, however, was the food (which is usually insanely good). I opted for the turkey and my companions both opted for the steak. My turkey was completely hard and dry and my companions received drastically unequal portions of steak, the woman being served more than twice as much steak as the man...so odd! The buttermilk biscuits were hard (like when you put bread in the microwave) and the stuffing was unbelievably dry. The rest of the meal was okay with the exception of the butternut squash soup, which was honestly delicious.

We did not complain or send anything back because sometimes you just want to enjoy people's company and have a nice time regardless of the circumstances (especially when you're some place you cherish as a favorite go-to for special events).

In spite of this disappointing experience, I still consider MacKenzie's Chop House one of the best establishments in the city. I can only imagine that something went seriously wrong in the kitchen that day.

We go to Mackenzies a lot and this was our first Thanksgiving. It was very disappointing. The price was too high for what they served and my nieces salad had a small rock in it that hurt her tooth when she bit it. The turkey was so tuff in spots I couldn’t cut it. The manager did comp my nieces dinner but over all dissatisfied. Also you need to deep clean. The bathroom vent above the stalls were coated with dust and grime. For a high end restraunt and well known place for what you charge you should shine.

Our first visit here - Thanksgiving dinner. We were not impressed. Not the quality we’re accustomed to for a nice restaurant. Prime rib portions were skimpy. We were offered “seconds” at no charge. Overall not a good holiday experience. Setting is beautiful in the old historic Alamo Hotel.
