We came here because we are Always Sunny fans and we were hoping to run into "Mac". We didn't see him but we had some drinks and some laughs. It is a nice bar and the staff was very polite. I would go back for a drink the next time I am in Philly!

Used trip advisor to find a lunch spot near Independence Hall. Mac's had good food and a good beer selection. Definitely a great experience for lunch.

Wasn't impressed with Macs ! Food was just about warm rather than hot. Wonder then how the wings were cooked or are they reheated at lunch ? Anyway - maybe at night it's better and busier but won't be trying again.

Go here. You won't be sorry. Locals love this spot for a reason. Upstairs tends to be less crowded than downstairs.

Having been to several “The Office” sites in Scranton with my grandson, he warned me that there was one place where he wanted to go for a meal and that was at Mac’s Tavern as was co-owned by McElhenney and Olson of “It’s always Sunny in Philadelphia”. Not having seen the programme I wasn’t sure what to expect but what... More

We went on the Friday night of Memorial Day weekend. Arrived around 7:00 pm, just after Happy hour ended. Place is small - some small tables along the wall and in the back with barstools along the bar and three small tables on the sidewalk. No tables left for our family of six, but there were six bar stools along... More

Even though their menu and bottled/can beer selection shrunk since our last time there, Mac's continues to be a must-do in Philadelphia. The roasted pork sandwich and gravy fries can't be passed up, and I would also heartily recommend the fried calamari. The service has never been anything but great. McElhenney and Olson obviously run a tight ship, and we'll... More

Went to Mac's for St Patty's day weekend with some family. All of us being fans of the show were impressed with the subtle references such as green man, a framed Chase Utley jersey,etc. I was also pleasantly surprised by the beer and food menus. They had a pretty nice selection of local and specialty beers and the food was... More

Even if you're not a fan of Sunny this is still a must. Great, friendly staff with absolutely incredible food. Get the cheese steak, it will change your life. Music was great too! Awesome atmosphere with little Sunny inspired hidden references around the tavern. Project bada**!

Went there for lunch with my son. First time in Philly.The food was delicious! Got a CheeseSteak sub (of course). Wait staff were excellent. They knew when to ask if we needed anything else, and left us to enjoy our meals.Clean, comfortable setting. Music was great! I could have stayed there the whole afternoon! I would highly recommend lunch at... More
