It's always Sunny In Philadelphia

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

Im a huge fan of It's Always Sunny-so insisted we went here when we visited Philly. The bar is great-and has a really nicve relaxed vibe about it. I had the skillet Mac and Cheese and it was the tastiest Mac and Cheese I have ever had!! They were also doing Mimosas for $5 which came in very generous glasses!... More

I am a fan of It's Always Sunny, so I felt the need to support Rob and Kaitlin's restaurant. The restaurant is in a great area, and the atmosphere was fun on a Friday night. The food was actually much better than expected. The sweet potato wedges with icing were a very good appetizer. I had the roast pork sandwich,... More

We couldn't get to any of the It's Always Sunny's locations, but stopping at Mac's Tavern made me feel like at least did something related to the show.

Mac's was a good place for us to swing by when we were looking for a late drink before heading back to the hotel. The prices were right around the average for the rest of the town and it certainly didn't feel very touristy at all. Worth going to for a pint and hopes of seeing one of their famous... More

My wife and I had a pint at Mac's on our recent trip to Philly. It is located in a great location on Market St in Old City. We were there on a Sunday so football was on. The craft beer selection was fantastic with many local craft ales on tap. The bartender was helpful and knowledgeable with his beer... More

Wandering around, looking for a place for dinner and we stumbled into this place (during a Notre Dame game which apparently is a huge deal for this place). Great feel for a neighborhood bar. Highly recommend the gravy fries and the skillet mac and cheese: ultimate comfort food. Husband had the brisket burger too which was awesome. The atmosphere was... More

My husband and I stopped at Mac's twice during our stay in Philly--once for lunch and then again for a beer and to watch some of the football game. We had the turkey BLT and the crab cake sandwich, which were the special price on the day we visited. They were both delicious and came with a generous portion of... More

Nice local bar to grab a beer. Although this place was made famous by the "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" TV show, it doesn't have any of the gimmicky or touristy feel that visiting the Cheers bar in Boston has. This pretty much is a local neighborhood bar, picked up from it's hidden location and dropped down smack dab in... More
