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... More

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.

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.

Didn't like the wings (but I am not a wing person), found them a bit greasy - but loved the nacho's could have eaten the whole plate myself.

Rude waitresses when they do actually visit your table, the food takes 30+ minutes to get to the table, and the drinks are expensive, even by Yellowknife standards. With a few other choices in town, I would not recommend the MacKenzie, if it's the only option, just stay home.

Both my husband and I went and ordered tenderloin, we could hardly cut through it. It was not a tenderloin at all and we brought it up to the server and were she said she would tell the chef and that was the end of it. We will not return.
