Service a little slow and not very attentive. If you are looking for a place for conversation, try some where else. It is noisy as a sports bar should be. Saw a previous review commenting that place was not clean; did not find any such problems. Food was ok, but nothing to write home about. Four of us had sandwiches... More

Heading down I-81 and stopped in Salem VA for the night. The Hampton Inn recommended Mac N Bob's as a good 'local' place to eat. We weren't disappointed. Service by Candice was great...she recommended the flounder for my wife and agreed to my choice of the Black & Blue Burger. My wife said the flounder was some of the best... More

Mac N Bob's was much bigger inside that we expected from the outside. There's an outdoor patio and lots of indoor space, including a large bar area and several other dining rooms. Staff was pleasantly attentive and the food was very good--I highly recommend the cod sandwich because it was delicious! Will say it's a bit noisy but, since it's... More

Staff is friendly, food is ordinary (and more expensive than it's worth), TV screens on every wall, not exactly a place to go if you want to have a conversation.

A eatery with a bar type atmosphere. Not fine dining but a place to go and have a couple of drinks and eat mostly bar food. Good food at a fair price but not gourmet.

We went for lunch AND dinner. It's big and can accommodate a lot of people. Our softball team just walked right in and they seated us easily. The food was good, everyone enjoyed their meal. Lots of TVs with different sports events on. Staff was friendly. Very nice.
