Awesome service, staff is friendly and very helpful. Food was good...bar food. They are huge Chicago fans and games on all the time. They remembered us and turned on the Chicago Blackhawks when we came in. I recommend and would go back.

We were bar hopping when we came upon Mac's Pub. Great place. Bartenders were great. They had pickle chips so we had to try them. Really good, huge portion and the price was right. Would definitely go back.

This is a great place to park yourself for a ballgame. We were there for the SC game this weekend. Beer is inexpensive and the coldest anywhere. Great location on East Bay Street just down from the Lodge Ally Inn where we stay.
