Had the crab cake sandwich. I think they forgot the crab meat. Filler was overwhelming. Soup was good and the lantern flies was very annoying.

My friend and I had lunch outside during COVID19 and we were delighted with our first visit here. She had the cob salad and I had the most delicious white bean soup I've had since I ate my own mothers!

I've already told several friends about this great stop.

Have eaten here on several occasions and had pleasant experiences. This was not the same. We had a reservation and requested an outdoor seat. We were put in a dark, sort of dingy corner near the kitchen door. The place didn't look too busy, but service was slow and disorganized. Food was less than memorable.

Dinner was family celebration for a birthday, a party of 6 for outside dining. Several times thru meal, guests remarked on choice of restaurant, menu selections, and ambiance of McKenzies restaurant. A good time was had by all, and looking forward to a return visit.

Server was awful.I don’t generally say that ever but the service was so bad and maybe she had a bad day. Not a good representation of the restaurant. We have had great servers at this location but unfortunately now is not the case tonight.

I took a friend to your restaurant yesterday for lunch. The food was delicious. Service was good however we had to ask for water. Other tables were getting water but we got it once we asked for it. I figure she was busy and just forgot. So overall I’d definitely go back for another meal.

The evening was very nice, food was good (it’s always good). It was a nice evening to be outside. In an unusual situation, our server could have been a little more attentive.

This is our go to place! Service was less than ideal this time. I think they were understaffed and just didnt have enough people to cover the tables. Food was good as always, just poor service.

Fish cakes were excellent and perfectly done. Waitress rather slow with our second beverage and no water. Ate half my meal with anything to drink.

Four of us dined outside. Waiter was new, first day. Really didn't know much and apologized, but he did get answers for us. Waited over half an hour for our appetizers. Entrees served at a decent time after that. Food was good. My burger was done perfectly and my wife's salad entree was big. Very good lager beer, too. Overall, we were pleased and will return.

We sat outside. Although my knife was dirty, our waitress replaced it immediately. I liked that their food servers were masked and gloved. Our waitress was great and the food delicious! Come here often. Can always count on it for a good meal!

Beautiful outdoor open seating which is great right now, but they are just not able to get the food and service down. Our server was clearly new, but ... the food is barely restaurant quality. I recommend a drink ( if you are brought the right one) and an appetizer. Perfect location but they just can't get the food right.

During COVID I would suggest no salt n pepper shakers on tables and no actual menus. Otherwise service was very efficient.

Returned to McKenzie a second time during these down outside times. Restaurant is very respectful to have tables distanced appropriately. This is our first consideration these days for a place to dine. Staff was very attentive. Noticed that menus no longer provided; customers must access menu via scan. Safe way to view menu. Same with paying bill; just pay on line. Food was good. I had pizza. Of course, if one wants really good pizza, you go to a pizza place. However, McK does make a good effort at providing an acceptable pizza. BBQ chicken pizza and carmelized onions was good. Wife's Salmon BLT wrap also good. Her sweet potato fries were not hot. Expressed this to the runner who served us. A short while later replacement sweet potato fries were served; maybe a degree warmer than the first. Disappointing that the kitchen could not do right by us after the complaint was presented to it. Server told us she would take this off the bill but we refused. She then said she would remove the $1 uncharge per the manager. She presented the bill but the uncharge remained. Oh well. We will return. McK is a good place with broad menu and occasionally everyone has a screw up from time to time.

Had 5:30 reservations ... umbrellas at tables were small so the sun was blazing hot, sat 5 of us at a 4 top, extremely slow service - finally got to order - nachos, 3kids chicken fingers, salad and ribs. Kids drinks were still not at table after 40 minutes sitting in hot sun. Asked for an update on appetizer and kids meals after an hour and was given a rude response. Waitress was not attentive and rarely came for refills or to check in. After an hour and a half we got nachos and 3 kids meals that were cold. At 7:30 still no adult meals- 2 hours after sitting. The kids had finished and we needed to take adult meals to go.

We waited over an hour for our food to be delivered to our table. We were sat in the sun without an umbrella despite a variety of table in the shade or with access to an umbrella.

On Saturday night, my husband and I, joined our friends for a nice social gathering amongst the whole corona virus stay at home situation. It was a shame that the restaurant wasn't more crowded but that was to be expected due to social distancing. At least we enjoyed each other's company and the food was very tasty. I had the pork tacos, my husband had the pork sliders, my friend had a wedge salad with chicken, and her husband enjoyed a bacon cheeseburger. The summertini was a nice compliment to my meal. Hopefully when this whole thing calms down, we will return and business will pick up.
