This was not my first visit. My other experiences were good, the food and service. This recent visit not so much. Food was good but the service was very poor... You could count the people in the place and on more then one occasion we had to have someone flag down our server... Very disappointing!
Seated outside with light breeze for late morning. Great patio for dining. Took two try's to get a clean cup for coffee. No sugar on table for spouses tea. Food took a while but we were not in any rush. Food was ok. Service was fair. This is my third time at McKenzie Brew House and I'll just stick to the beer and bar food.
Excellent food and service. This place has really gone uphill. Ty Sean the new gm!!
The consensus of our group was that the food and service was pretty poor. I’ve been here before and never had any complaints until now. I doubt we’ll be back.
Food was excellent. As always, a great meal for good value. Service was prompt and courteous.
Unfortunately, on a Sunday evening, at a table for seven celebrating a graduation, the table was ignored until we asked for service then the food took a prolonged period to come out with appetizers coming out just a minute before main courses making it impossible to enjoy both. The server was very nice but the kitchen was not helping her and the table seemed too much for her to handle.
It took over an hour and a half to get our food. We asked the manager where our food was that we had been waiting over an hour. His response was oh the kitchen is backed up let me see if I can dig up your food. No apology or anything. We had to ask several times for our drinks to be refilled. It was just a bad experience all around.
Brunch menu said there was a bloody mary make yourself bar. Our drinks (complete) were just plunked down in front of us. When i asked about the bar, the waiter shrugged and walked away. They were terrible, very watered down, like drinking water with a lot of horseradish. Foid was good but service was very slow and unpleasant .
Reservations didn’t seem to matter to the people at front desk. Requested to seat outside on reservation, but we were told no once we got there. There were 2 empty tables outside. Party downstairs was extremely loud. Don’t know that we will be back.
Many times we've frequented this establishment. Usually rather good, or we wouldn't go back.
In Memorial day with guests from out of town. Ummm-pretty bloody lousy.
1. Reserved table not ready.
2. When ready, table for six mashed in a corner, access severely restricted.
3. 15 minutes to get drinks.
4. Another 15 minutes to get one more.
5. Entree's slow.
6. Didn't reorder drinks due to wait first time
7. Had to hunt down server to get the tab.
8. Obviously on short staff and limited service due to holiday.
We'll probably return, but not in the near future.
I love coming here! The food is always delicious, the service is great, and you’re not spending a fortune to eat.
Wonderful menu, great tasting food and terrific service.
1) I made a reservation on-line for a table outside (it is an option for a reservation) and was told when we arrived that reservation are not taken for outside seating. It was early and wasn’t a problem but I tried to explain that it is an option when making a reservation on-line and the young lady wouldn’t listen or even accept that there is a problem with the on-line reservation app. She was very curt in her response.
2) I ordered the Baby Back Ribs and the oregano was the dominant flavor followed by the barbecue sauce. It ruined the ribs.
But it was a beautiful evening I I enjoyed the deck seating and visiting with friends. I will try it again and hope it is better next time.
Mother’s Day Brunch
Mother’s Day Brunch at McKenzie’s is terrific. Selection is great, food is fresh- omelet station, too and reasonably priced mimosas.
Great food and brew! Service was terrific and accommodated special requests. We’ve enjoyed many meals at McKenzie’s and have always been very satisfied.
Always great! We stop there whenever we are in that area of town.
Great food, great prices, will absolutely be back!
Thanks for the great review, SteveS! Quality food and value is what we are all about. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Great new menu items. Tuna Poke Nachos were excellent!
Thanks for the great review, Mpat2zo! If you enjoyed your Tuna Poke Nachos, make sure to try our Pacific Rim Salmon Poke at your next visit - It's a fan favorite! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
McKenzies is a great go to restaurant. The food is always good, and consistent. Not usually a wait.
Thanks for the review and feedback, Mpat2zo. Quality food, friendly service, and great beer is what we are all about. We hope to see you again soon so we can show we can be even better!
Went there with friends to celebrate my 50th birthday a little early! Food was good, but service was very slow. Although it wasn't busy, the waitress seemed stressed and it took awhile to get our food. At no time did she come back and ask if we needed refills and my friend had to ask for our table to be cleared long after we were done eating. As I was opening presents, she gave us our bill without asking if we wanted dessert. When we said we were going to order dessert, she seemed annoyed. Dessert (2 pieces of cake) took forever to come and came without forks, so we had to ask for them. As she threw them on the table, she commented on how she was busy and stressed! She also loudly thanked the people next to us for their patience. I'm sorry she was stressed, but my friends and I were very polite and she was very unprofessional. She dampered the celebration with her poor service and attitude.
Thank you for this feedback. We apologize that your service did not live up to your expectation. It was definitely not our intention to upset anyone. Please feel free to reach out to the general manager, Sean. We would love to make this up to you.
Visited on a Friday night about 8:30pm. Our first experience at the brew house. Waitress was helpful regarding the draft beers and the questions regarding the menu. Appetizer was out quickly and prepared as we asked. Meals also timely and food quality was good. Overall a nice casual dining experience.
Thanks for the great review, JohnF. Quality food and friendly service is what we are all about. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Excellent craft beers and great menu...always hard to decide what to get
They only serve their beers as they are brewhouse. If you don't like their beers you're out of luck.
Service was very slow (not crowded).
Nachos were stale (did not finish)
Wedge Salad was good.
Thank you for the review and feedback, RonF. Quality food, and reliable service is what we are all about, and we are sorry to see we fell short of that. We hope to see you again soon to show you we can be even better!
We’ve been to McKenzie’s many times. The menu has been updated and we were pleased with the new things we tried! The Buddha bowls were delicious!!!! Our server Jack was very attentive! We will be back soon!
Very friendly greeting and service, awesome food, and let us do our thing for a business lunch. The clam chowder was incredible , and the server made great lunch recommendations. Try the salmon bacon tacos!
Very professional staff especially at the bar!🍺
We visit McKenzie's about six times a year. They always meet our expectations and we will return. We especially like the "steak out" specials on Sunday nights
Thanks for the review, JoeQ! Our team at McKenzie Brew House strives to create an enjoyable experience each visit, and are pleased to hear we met your expectations. If you enjoy our Steak Out Special on Sunday and Wednesday nights, be sure to check out our other specialty nights throughout the week. Fajita and Rita night on Thursdays is a fan favorite! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
We were seated in the bar area which was ok for Sunday. It can get very loud in that area normally but wasn't that time of the day. I've been to McKenzies a few times and enjoyed the food and service. However, brunch just wasn't as good this time. My eggs Benedict was cold and barely had any hollandaise sauce. I asked for more and the server did bring me some, but it just wasn't very good. I did get the fried cheese curds for the table and those were excellent. Just wish the brunch items had been better.
We've been going to McKenzie's for many years. They never disappoint.
A neighborhood favorite. Always good. Service is good, food is right on and price is right.
Thanks for the great review and feedback, veram! We strive to create an enjoyable experience each visit, and are pleased to hear we met your expectations. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Good service and food!
Staff was courteous. Portions were generous. We were both pleased with our meals. There was an error on mine, but our waitress addressed it immediately. It's a nice casual place for a meal. Considering it's a Brew House, I was surprised by the number of families there. The only down side is exiting the parking lot. That's to be expected since the restaurant is located in the median of a very busy road.
The dining room was full and yet very quiet even with many children present. I was not sure how to rate the noise level on the previous page so I wanted to explain that it was great.
There's a lot to enjoy at this place. It has great food, a descent beer selection, good service, and a lively atmosphere.
Good spot for casual family dinners. Friendly service.
Excellent server... she was great, food was great, nice atmosphere!!!
Food was cold, server never checked to see if food was ok.
No bad no good just the same it wasn’t what I expected but it was good
Thanks for the review and feedback, AnnieHdez123. We hope to see you again soon as we are confident we can help you find something you love that sets us apart.
