One more chance......just because

Went on a Saturday night for a bite and a pint and left thirsty and hungry. I walked in and sat at bar, place was pretty full with seats left on the deck. Before I could sit down I was asked what beer I wanted but with such a great selection asked for a minute. That became close to 10... read more

Such delicious fare and one of the best selections of beers! We love MacFarlane's and often take out-of-town guests to eat there. So many fabulous beers and the Voodoo Vodka (made in house) is great in a Bloody Mary. The appetizers are killer!

I'm sorry for any customer who would think I did not love my job and the people I work for, yes I am 20 and you can legally be 18 to sell alcohol in Louisiana. I'm so sorry to those who are offended by my age, but I know my beer better than most people I've met. That plus my... More

The food was pretty good. They were out of some beverages. The owners of this place has cameras in the bar, an alcohol tracking device, and a log book employees sign for breaking glasses. No system will help you if you put a 20 y/o behind the bar to bartend. She talked bad about the owner, drank on duty in... More

I like the sandwich selections and the fish and chips. The fish and chips is large enought to share. The chicken breast sandwich is great as is the burger. I prfer the homemade chips for a side but you can get sweet potato fries or regular fries.

Great casual atmosphere and wonderful food! Waitstaff's kilts seem authentic, and all are very friendly and helpful. Love the corned beef and cabbage, among other traditional Celtic treats, but no haggis! Good sandwiches and pages and pages of beers! Good Guiness, too. Yes, we'll go back!

I stopped here my first night in Lake Charles. It was around 8:15 on Monday night, so the place was pretty slow. I sat at the bar and was quickly informed that the kitchen was closed. The short version is the draft beer system is the worst I seen and you will NOT get a decent beer from the tap.... More

I moved to Lake Charles 11 months ago and am always searching for new, great restaurants. While driving downtown tonight, we turned down a side street & found MacFarlanes. It looked charming, and we could sit outside & see the lake. Omg.....we were so excited to sample delicious food, great beer & wine selection, & an excellent server named Temperance!... More

We have stopped in at MacFarlane's every time we are in the area and it has never failed to make me happy. Our last trip there (this past weekend) was of special note. We encountered a waitress by the name of Temperance, who is a big Dr. Who fan and has a personality bigger than the bar. We loved every... More
