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

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
