Great Atmosphere, Friendly Staff.

As a huge fan of It's always Sunny.. visiting Mac's Tavern was a must while in Philly. We nipped in for a quick pint, which ended up being more like 8 pints a meal and an accumulation of new friends to show us round the city. The atmosphere was really relaxed and friendly, from the bar staff... read more

This location is great for a relaxing Sunday spent hanging out in the city. Very reasonable prices and the staff was super friendly. I would definitely visit again in the near future.

When we arrived, it appeared to be a college type bar, with lots of drunk 20 somethings. We couldn't get anyone to come by and serve us, and finally flagged down a waitress who seemed annoyed that we wanted to order. Food was cold when it was served and it wasn't the highlight of the night for us, we moved... More

My wife and I were visiting Philly and we both wanted to check out this place since we are huge "Sunny" fans. It is safe to say that when we visit again we will definitely be stopping back! First off, the atmosphere is great. The scene is so chill and the music was fantastic. Secondly (and most importantly), the food.... More

We stopped at Mac's Tavern for a light lunch after having spent the afternoon sightseeing. I was completely unaware of the culinary delights that awaited my tastebuds!!! I ordered the Burbonian sandwich. I can not recall everything that went in it, however what I can say is that it was a little bit of heaven mixed in with pixie dust... More

We were in Philly for 3 days and came here each day. Good choice of draught beers. Beware food portions are large.

Went to Mac's for dinner after a long day of travel. It was kind of busy but we were on the late side of the after work-dinner crowd. Staff was accommodating but not overly welcoming. Could have cared less if we were there. Ordered burgers which were good. French fries were some of the best we've had - crispy with... More

Visited with husband & son, good selection of drinks. Chicken wraps & cheese steak were all good, but loved the fries - potatoes cut with their skins on, fresh & crisply cooked. Good spot for quick, informal lunch stop.

Went to Mac's on a whim and very happy we did. Great location in Philly for one, so much to do and experience down there. One bar after another and right near all the historic sights. Mac's is a small place with a great looking bar, great beer selection and drink specials. Hubby had a club sandwich that was unlike... More
