Had dinner with my family at MacGregor's January 30th 2017. The restaurant was quiet with abundant seating available. Each of us had a different meal and shared bites. Between the burgers that were prefectly prepared, though a bit large for most of us, and the Fish and Chips, we all ate well. The staff was attentive, but not constantly around.... More

A friend and I decided to try lunch here as she had had a great fish fry BUT lunch was a disappointment. I ordered a Reuben sandwich and broccoli cheddar soup. for $9.99. The soup was very good. The sandwich however was a different story. It was hot and adequate size but the meat was tough and very, very fatty... More

This is the second time we were here and every time we have enjoyed the good food and service. They have amazing burgers and wings. The wings were crispy and with the right among of BBQ sauce. I chose the sweet and spicy sauce, great choice, and comes with a blue cheese sauce. They have a great selection of local... More

fish and chips was adequate; chicken noodle soup ok; pickles good! Their veggie wrap was a total disaster: oozing, dripping of oil; veggies so soggy that the wrap was totally not to be picked up; nor actually able to be cut with a fork and knife, it was so oily and wet...terrible meal...TERRIBLE. I told the waitress; but no one... More

What's too like? Other then a great selection of craft beers, the staff is rude especially the bartenders & often takes forever to get a drink. The food is mediocre at best, and I don't think I've ever had a good meal there. This is coming from a guy who is not very picky at all. In two-three times I've... More

We like to get to MacGregor's early so that we can enjoy it before it becomes crowded and a little noisy. They have a great selection of foods and the service is good. We usually eat at the bar area and the bartender is efficient and attentive. We love the wings and the salad is awesome! Good size portions. Would... More

Food is average Pub Food, they specialize in Flights of beer and different beers and ales. I don't drink beer, so finding something else was a bit of time consuming. We had 6 adults and 2 children at our table, drinks came out quickly, food order was messed up for one order so husband didn't get to eat dinner with... More

Saturday evening dinner with friends and our kids. Wait time wasn't horribly bad, seated in about 10-15 minutes. Stood at the bar for a drink and popcorn. Bartender was great...as the drink she made me I wasn't too fond of, so she was more than happy to make me something else. Popcorn was yummy of course! Kids had pizza, which... More

My wife and I stopped in to have a bite and a couple of drinks and left satisfied! My previous visits were average--things seemed to have improved. The menu appears to have changed, offering a variety of apps, salads and signature sandwiches--decent pub food. We shared a salad and the veggie wrap. Both were good, I would suggest cooking the...

Had a wonderful dinner at MacGregor's. Nice selection of drinks and pub food. My beef on kennewick (sp?) was excellent. I was surprised that they had a kids menu for my little ones. Others in my group had the fish fry and veggie burger, all good. Our waitress was super nice and attentive. Only negative was the wait for our... More
