Wonderful beer selection.

Stopped here to drink a beer or ten before going on a walking tour. I'm originally from Chicago a good while ago. It felt like I was going back home. The beer selection was awesome with a lot of Goose Island beers available. Goose Island Matilda doesn't show up at a pub very often! And the beers... read more

What a great spot when any sport is on, and it goes to another level when the team is from Chicago. Very cold beer, good bar food, and a fun casual p,ace.

Service: Very good. Our waitress was pleasant and made sure we were taken care of throughout our visit. Food: Pretty standard fare. We started out with the fried pickles. We ordered a chicken caesar wrap, BLT, and mac and cheese for the little one. Everything was fine. This place is a lot more reasonable in price than most of the... More

My wife & I went there for lunch. Waitress told us there was a boil water advisory due to a water main break & there were certain drinks we could not get including drinking water, but could have bottled water. We each had bottled water with our lunch. When the bill came we were charged $3.60 for the water. When... More

My husband and I are from the Chicago suburbs, and Mac's caught our eye right away with their Chicago Bears logo in the window! We went in to grab some beers. It was really fun to see all of the Chicago memorabilia, although my husband did notice they were missing some White Soc banners! They had local southern beer on... More

Very unique dive type bar. Fun staff and awesome drink specials. Even though it was roasty outside the beer was ice cold and we were never without service.

Awesome place for a few beers and appetizers! Location was in a trendy area with other bars and restaurants. The Irish nachos were a hit and the beer was cold. The pub had a sports theme which was cool- except for the Cubs memorabilia!!!!!!!

Steve and I went to Charleston this past Saturday to meet my niece, Meg for lunch. We met at Mac's on East Bay Street near the very end of the Peninsula. It is a total sports bar. Every sport is on a TV in the bar. Steve had a huge hamburger and I had a grilled chicken salad. Food was... More

If you want a great bar to get drinks at and chill this place is great. We always go here for drinks in the evening. Always a great time!
