MacAllister's Grill & Tavern offers casual fare (mostly sandwiches) in a comfortable environment. They also offer a variety of Scottish drinks including a wide variety of single-malt scotch - and even have a cigar-smoking area outside so you may sip and puff.

As you drive into the heart of Lakewood Ranch Town Center and blink, you could open your eyes and think that you were in the middle of a Disneyland movie set. Think about it, if you had to create a facsimile of 1950 Main Street America what types of businesses would dominate that street in the 21st Century? The answer... More

We enjoyed an ok meal in this busy restaurant and was amazed that so many dogs were allowed (as a dog lover). Best they be left at home in my view.

This is a fun, casual, enjoyable restaurant! My husband, son, and I all love the menu. The service is always great too! Try a Bravheart beer!

Wide variety of food options & reasonable prices. Great people watching spot, & also a good place to go before or after... More

I did not have a high expectation of great pub food. I had a grilled chicken salad. It was superb! I am not a seafood fan but I have to say the crab cake was really good. My friend had the cod soup and said it was excellent. Their fries are really good. Another friend had a burger and really... More

Lakewood Ranch Main Street is just a great place to go for dinner. There are so many choices and one of our favorites is MacAllisters. We have never had a bad meal here and the wait is rarely more than 30 minutes, unless you go the first Friday of the month for 'Music on Main' when all of Main Street... More

good fish & chips, friendly service, but the salmon BLT needed more salmon and bacon .. the bun was only half covered with skimpy piece of salmon and bacon!

we sat at the bar for some appetizers. The bar staff were very friendly. We ordered the calamari, yes in a Scottish restaurant... And.... They were awesome! The bar manager told us they were good and he was absolutely right. I would definitely return. Nice atmosphere, prices, and food! And of course their staff were all very pleasant and fun.
