Stopped in with our neighbors to try another menu item. Everyone tried something new and everyone loved their meal. I was not surprised...

We have been to The sister restaurant Twisted Grove. Both are very good. Macintosh was not quite as noisy which we liked because we were visiting with friends.
Noodle salad is delicious. Very generous serving. The Salmon is a lovely health conscience meal. Ribs were delicious. The Brussel sprout appetizer is an absolute must if you like Brussel sprouts the sauces for everything are beautifully prepared very flavorful.

Met my family there for an early Sunday evening dinner. Not many tables were occupied but like I said it was early. They had happy hour even on a Sunday so we got a few items to start off of the HH menu as well as the main menu. Food came out very fast and was all prepared very well. I split the crispy chicken sandwich w my brother and we agreed it may be the best chicken sandwich we've ever had. Dont take that statement lightly!! Definitely will be added to our regular rotation.

Everything was perfect. The only issue I ran into was that the hostess didn’t seem to properly communicate my notes for my reservations. I requested a booth but we were placed in high top seating. This wasn’t a huge deal. I also requested a desert for my boyfriends birthday which we were celebrating but it wasn’t communicated so it wasn’t a surprise. Everything else was great! Love this location

We had a great time at The Macintosh for dinner. It was our first time and they gave us some SUPER delicious crispy Brussels sprouts on the house! It was such a sweet gesture. I had the gin gimlet (also delicious) and the salmon/salad combo. My salmon was a little undercooked (but I like it more well done, I should have clarified with our server) and my salad had tons of dressing on it. My husband loved the white cheddar burger and shoestring fries, and we would definitely return.

Service was excellent and food was very good. Ribs fell off the bone and I don’t think I ever eaten that many Brussels sprouts before.

Post new year celebrations were in order for many of us who had brought in the new decade together. So I made a reservation for a few of us that we're able to go. We stopped to have another fabulous meal at the macintosh. As usual, the food was fantastic, the conversation was flowing, and the service was, as always, great. I hope to get back many time in 2020...

The food was really very good. I had the salmon and it was excellent. My husband had the chicken biscuit sandwich and he greatly enjoyed it. It was definitely a great meal. A couple of things that were less than special, however, were: first, we sat in a booth where the gentleman that sat behind my husband kept leaning forward and back and my husband felt every movement on his side - it became a distraction, unfortunately. Not sure if this is just how the boothes are built, but it's too bad. Next, I chose this restaurant for my husband's birthday. We were greeted by the hostess with a "happy birthday", however my husband never received an offer of a birthday dessert or anything, so it was a bit disappointing. Then lastly, I booked this reservation OpenTable and it was acknowledged when we checked in, however I didn't receive the points expected for the visit and not sure why.

While our waiter was a bit inattentive (we asked for waters as we were never given any, but he brought forks instead; we had to flag him down so we could place our order), the other staff picked up his slack and were wonderful. The food was FANTASTIC!!! We will definitely return as there are several other dishes we want to try.

The chopped salad had too many ingredients in it that didn't blend well.
And there were NO greens in the salad.
The salmon was over-cooked.

Great food at reasonable prices. We eat here quite a bit as it’s right off the freeway so great spot to stop if heading downtown.

The Macintosh is fast becoming one of my favorite places for a casual meal or happy hour. The food is great, tried the risotto with blackened shrimp which was delicious and not over cooked and the smoked salmon appetizer was a great surprise of flavor served with the crispy butter saltines. Nice cocktail list and a lovely patio.

I am baffled that a restaurant with a wonderful and unique menu would ruin the experience by blasting music so loud, diners cannot hear themselves talk let alone someone sitting right next to them. The decibel onslaught is unhealthy for all ears and seeing a baby there without ear protection seemed irresponsible. There should be a warning on the door just as they do for other issues. Just as talking about upsetting topics ruins a great meal, so does painful sound. Hence the low rating. We’ll be back when they “turn it way down”.

I have been to the Macintosh several times for lunch and have never been disappointed. This visit we shared the roasted brussels sprouts appetizer, with pieces of bacon and drizzled with a sweet balsamic reduction. Yummy! I had ventured away from a standby (the noodle steak salad) and opted for the day's special - the Omega burger, a salmon patty with lots of flavor surrounded by greens, avocado, and some sort of citrus mustard. My lunch companion had the grilled salmon/chopped salad combo. We both thoroughly enjoyed. Well done on the restaurant reboot!!

Great place for brunch! The food was really good and the biscuits are so amazing!! You do order off brunch menu or regular menu on Sunday. We really enjoyed it and the price was pretty good!
