...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 family stopped by here for lunch today. They were so accommodating to the 15 of us. The wait staff was awesome and the food selection was great! Everyone loved what they got! Definitely stop here if you are in the area!

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

bartenders are ALWAYS rude and incredibly slow. they just lollygag behind the bar ignoring everyone. i was there last night and the place was practically dead, still took 5 minutes of hanging at the bar to get a beer. whats crazy to me is that all the bartenders are like. who is running this place? they must just hire all...

As Always Sunny fans, we had to stop at Mac's tavern. It was a nice place with touches of Always Sunny memorabilia, but not overly dedicated to that. The food was great and there was a huge selection of draft beers. Would recommend even if you don't care a bit about Always Sunny.

I want to move to Philadelphia just so I could be a regular at the pub. The staff was very friendly and made you feel welcome. Engaging and fun place to spend the afternoon. Food was good better then most pub food and the beer was great. I would go back in a second and totally recommend this pub

Awesome bar! A must see for any visiting It's always sunny fans :) Cool decor inside with pictures of the crew around the walls and a great atmosphere with a wide selection of beers on draught. Friendly staff with a really chilled out vibe food looked great.

We arrived here for a drink around 4:30 on a Friday (happy hour) and it was a bit quiet but still a great vibe. Things picked up around 5:30/6 with the after work crowd and the place was a lot of fun. Very helpful bartenders (they even give you a taste of the beer before you order it). The draft... More
