Brewhouse? Very limited selections.

The first thing that grabs your attention are the large brewing vats in a large window, directly in front of the building. I expected 100 different beer options to choose from, including the house brew. The word "micro" definitely applies to the beer choices, since a "special" menu offers about 5... read more

my daughter, grandson, wife and I had lunch at McKenzie brew house at our grandson's suggestion. They have excellent suggestions for kids, and a view of the kitchen that really fascinated him. I had the chicken picatta, my wife the key west salad, my daughter the cobb salad wrap and our grandson had the kid chicken fingers. Total bill with... More

First time visit, I will go again. Short ribs, chicken breasts, meat loaf and turkey sausage, no beer. Everyone enjoyed their meal except the guy who had the sausage, namely me. Service was very good. Large family restaurant, with plenty of parking. Next time I will try the meat loaf, one of their signature dishes.

McKenzie Brew House is a relaxed and casual restaurant offering handcrafted beer as well as a full bar and a varied menu with something for everyone! If you're just looking for a nibble or for a full meal, you'll find it here, along with friendly servers and fun bartenders. Many flat screen televisions in the bar also make it a... More

Went to McKenzie's twice and both experiences were very good! The peppercorn steak was cooked perfectly and the bread pudding for dessert was outstanding. I wish they had a few more beer types but the saison was very tasty.

There's nothing over the top special about this place but there is nothing bad to say about this place at all. Though they brew their own beer, you never get the feeling it's a brew pub unless you knew ahead of time. . High ceiling, lots of light , pleasant bartender, limited but nice selection of beers. The beer is... More

Stopped for dinner on the way to Philly. The chicken pot pie was good. My boyfriend enjoyed his beer. This was our second time, but it won't be our last.

We were in the area for a long weekend with a large group and each time they were very accommodating! Food was very good and portions were a great size....would have been great for a goodie bag if we hadn't been in a hotel. Only comment would be that on a football afternoon they should have more than one bartender... More

This is our go-to place for fast casual. The food is a step above pub food and two steps above chains - an interesting eclectic menu - try the pizzas and big salads. Great atmosphere at the bar or in the dining room, and outside seating is wonderful on a summer night.
