My husband & I eat here often. This occasion was for book club. I’ve been for work get togethers as well. The food is good, service is professional, rarely have to wait for a table & the outdoor space is good. We’d have preferred to meet there but the weather did not comply. Glad to see it as an option on open table.

McKenzie Brewhouse in Malvern had excellent service and food. My fiance had a full rack of ribs and I had one of the burger options with onion rings and McKenzie's BBQ sauce. Both of us enjoyed our meals. We also had cheesecake for dessert which was equally delicious. Our server was very attentive and provided us with great service. The beer choices were also very good. I had the McKenzie Light Lager and my fiance had Route 202. They craft their own beers and they were very tasty. We will definitely go back here.

Basic food. Sort of all over the place. On the "Good-Meh-Suck" scale, it was a "Meh". Not bad just not good. May go back, may not. We will see.

Our reservation was for 7:00 p.m. for the patio on a very pleasant Saturday evening. We arrived at 7:01pm and were seated within about 5 minutes. It took at least 10 minutes for our server(s) to check in with us and ask for drink orders. We ordered our drinks (two beers and a red wine), an appetizer and our main course. The drinks finally arrived about 15 minutes later but we were finished with our drinks before our appetizer appeared, and after we had to ask twice about our appetizer. We had no silverware or napkins so had to use Kleenex to protect from drips from the appetizer. Our dinners arrived at least 20 minutes after we were finished with our appetizer and we still had to ask for our silverware and napkins. We ordered another round of drinks to go with dinner and when they were served, the waiter placed them in front of the wrong person even though our previous glasses were right in front of us. When we were finished with our meal we had to wait for our check and when the waiter brought the check he then asked if we wanted to order dessert. We nicely said "no".
We have been to this restaurant a number of times and I am not certain we will return as there are many other good restaurants with better service. The food was ok but because of the service our evening was not as enjoyable as we would have liked.

They could not keep up with the buffet and many items sat empty or you had to stand and wait. We will not be trying again. Dirty dishes piled high on our table.

After years of coming her for Easter brunch, I was sad to see this tradition end. It was very boring in the respect of energy. The waitress never offered our free Easter drinks and took so long to get me a tea bag the water went cold.
The pancakes were flat and dry, the waffle was hard, the eggs were runny and the pecans were burnt.
Overall this was one of the worst dining experience I ever had.
So sad to this tradition end.

I am a huge fan of McKenzie's and send a lot of business to you from Ricoh. We host our Holiday luncheon every year at the Devon location. The service can be a little slow from the time you place your food order until you actually receive it - could improve in this area.

On a personal note, I referred McKenzie's to a couple getting married last Fall, and they had their rehearsal dinner at McKenzie's.

Thank you.

The avocado toast was not worth the price. For the price there should be 2 pieces of toast. The french fries were tasteless, soggy and we didn't think you could screw up a french fries.

The waiter was great!

But it will be a while before we return to McKenzie in Malvern.

Recommended by our hotel. Nice pub. Smells wonderfully of smokey goodness. The burger with swiss and mushrooms was cooked perfectly to order. The barbecue chicken was tasty, but the crust was a bit doughy. Our server was very nice and very good at refilling our water. Wine list was surprisingly good for a brew pub. Beer menu looked awesome

Went here because Kelly @InnerView Ultrasoubd gave us recommendation and a coupon for after our 3D/4D ultrasound session to see our little man. This was our first time dining here, but when she said it was a micro-brewery, we knew it was for us. We We’re not disappointed. Awesome menu, awesome food, drink, and awesome service! We highly recommend, and will definitely be back to this location when we are in the area again

Overall experience was very good. only issue is that is was a very busy night and it took an hour for our food to be served from the time of ordering.

However their customer service was amazing and the food was delicious. Kids menu was wonderful. Regular menu had something for everyone! The micro brews were fab! love the tasting serving size of 5 oz! Great place for family or an adult gathering!

Everything was great! One small miss step though.... I ordered a Cessar salad with steak and no croutons. The salad was loaded with croutons and very wet. The waitress was lovely and brought me some dry Romain e to correct the issue of too much dressing. Will definitely go back without hesitation!

Brought my family to try the Sunday Brunch and we loved it ! Friendly service, relaxed atmosphere and delicious food . Bloody Mary Bar and Mimosas were also a hit . The eggs Benedict with Avocado was cooked perfectly. Chicken and waffles was a very generous portion size . Overall , I would recommend the Sunday Brunch to others .

We were seated in the bar area right away. Unfortunately, our server never actually made it to our table after about 10 plus minutes so we moved to the restaurant side. We were served immediately. Food was really good. Portions were big. Price was excellent.

While the food and drinks were great, our server looked miserable. She left us sitting for long periods of time without checking to see how the food was, if we needed any more drinks or just generally checking on us. I tried to continue being polite but she made it difficult because of her mood every time she came to the table.

Comfortable, tasty, fun, excellent service. Len was a terrific server. I'd go back just to sit in his section. The food was tasty and comforting. A broad menu sure to have something for everyone. I'm not a food sensitivity person, so I can't speak to any dietary restrictive menu options. Multiple seating sections ensures that there's a spot for everyone: a dining room for a "traditional dinner", bar seating (booths, high tops, and bar) to be "where the action is", and outdoor seating for the milder weather. No matter your dining needs, McKenzie's is sure to satisfy.
