Best Spot on Market Street

Our favorite spot in Philadelphia. Friendly service, good beer selection, and a knowledgeable staff. The food was exceptional. We were able to step out and watch fireworks and step right back in to our cozy table. We will definitely re-visit when in Philadelphia!

Great place to stop off for a beer. Also serves delicious cider. The fries are also to die for. Bar owned by a couple of the actors from 'Always Sunny in Philadelphia'.

We had to visit here due to our love for Always Sunny in Philadelphia! Seeing all the pictures of the cast on the walls made us incredibly excited!! On top of all that; the food was delicious, the staff was super friendly, and the vibes of the environment were amazing. Definitely try this place out for some good grub and... More

Great food, beer and service! After walking around Philly on a hot day, our server sat us in a booth where he knew we would cool off.

My wife recently accepted a job in Old City and we decided to try a few bars after a long day at work. We decided to give Macs Tavern a try and glad we did. Friendly bartenders, a great selection of craft and domestic beers and really good food. Nice Happy Hour and a great location for people watching!

...it's better! Stopped into Mac's for a late afternoon beer and a snack. The snack turned out to be a heaping helping of French fried gravy bliss. Good selection of beers. Servers were friendly and smiling. No complaints here!

My son and I made a stop at Mac's Tavern because we are fans of the TV show "Always Sunny in Philadelphia." Mac's is not modeled after the bar on the show, which is a good thing. Mac's is a small place, with good beer and interesting photos. They included images of the stars of the show who had visited... More
