The service and food were OK...not outstanding and the atmosphere was very loud. I was with a large group and the waiter did not get drink orders before taking dinner orders...so it was a bit confusing. I had a Wine Country Salad , which was pretty good, but the candied pecans were mostly candy.....not quite what I had in mind.... More

I work in the area and this place has a great set up for a happy hour since it has ample space indoors and plenty of room outside. They also have shuffleboard which always gets my attention. The problem is the beer. I'm sorry to the brewer, but in the past 2 years I've tried the place 3 or 4... More

There was an unpleasant odor upon entering that we couldn't quite identify but the weather was miserable and we wanted to have lunch so were seated. Nice hostess and very capable, nice server. Both the wood fired pizza and sweet potato fries were very salty and just awful. Generous portions but just about inedible. We paid and left. For me... More

This visit to McKenzies did not start well. We had to wait for 30 minutes for a waitress to stop by. Normally we'd have left, but we're talking and making sure our friends' baby was staying entertained. The food was okay, but I found myself trying to remember what I had (a chicken sandwich).

We like coming to McKenzie's for lunch. They have a wide selection on their menu and we never had anything that disappointed. You can choose to sit in the bar area or in the more formal dining room. They are also very accommodating for large groups as well. When the weather is nice, their back patio is the place to... More

This was the first time dining at this restaurant, and I have to say that everything was a great experience. I went with a group from work and we sit outside on their huge covered patio – Very nice atmosphere! We started off with a variety of chicken wings that were all very tasty. I also had the Maryland Crab... More

I came here with a large group recently where things were catered rather than individually ordered. Everything was outdoors on the back patio. The outdoor scenery was simple and looked very good---clean patio & furniture and a well trimmed view of the woods behind the restaurant. The weather was very good that day, so outdoors was the right place to... More

I came here with a group of friends to see the weekly Theology on Tap speaker, so we were in the lower level for the event. I can't really speak to the service since we had only the bartender serving the whole event, but she said that she didn't know the menu well since she wasn't even from this location,... More

I ate here just for a Monday night dinner and it was basically empty. We ate indoors. I got the jambalaya and it was WAY spicier than the waitress said it was going to be. It also lacked shrimp, clams and chicken, and had lots of sausage. My boyfriend ate Maryland Crab soup and Caesar salad, both delicious. The hostesses... More

We go to our local McKenzie's occasionally when we can think of nowhere else to go. Every time we go, we kick ourselves and say never again. We went last night for dinner. Our table was dirty and we had to ask for the specials menu and then again for the beer menu because the hostess didn't offer them to... More
