This place is so quiet and empty one questions whether or not it is even open for business. The service staff tries their best and ulimately provides good service. The place is musty, beer wreaks like a Turkish Rodeo, and the decor looks like it was inspired by one of Don Cherry's suits. I would rather take my chances in... More

I was staying in the Yellowknife Inn so on some of the cold nights it was just nice to walk down the hall to this place for supper. The food was really good, no complaints, the lounge was usually pretty quiet so I could sit and watch a hockey game while I enjoyed my supper and a drink. Only one... More

The MacKenzie has amazing wings. They have so many flavours to choose from. If you are fortunate enough to go on a Wednesday night which is wing night, you can get a dozen wings for $ 4.00 when you purchase a beverage. They have specials every night of the week.

I have been to Mackenzie lounge few times. From the times i have been at the restaurant i like steak night. The price is reasonable and thy save you a lot of steak. The restaurant atmosphere is ok, But you find out when you get to Yellowknife not so many outstanding fancy restaurants.

This is a good place for wings, they are cheaper than the other places in town and are delicious. In the summer I go there every week. Small place but good food.

The food here is...ok. It isn't amazing but I have had much worse. The service is also ok, but nothing extra. They tend to only have one person staffed who seems to be managing the lounge and all food orders in the lounge. As it is not a super busy lounge this can work most days, but there are times...

We initially went to the Latitudes restaurant to grab dinner, but was told that the latitude restaurant was closed, and all dinners were being served at the MacKenzie Lounge. They both shared the same menu, and oddly, the one Bartender/Waitress who was working the night constantly had to go back and forth from the MacKenzie Lounge, to the kitchen, which... More

Food and service were just OK, but the wings during wings night Wednesday were awesome! One factor is because they are cheap ($3/dozen!), but putting the $ aside, they are still yummy wings! Lots of flavors to choose from too! Great for group gatherings.
