I'm not usually a wing kind of girl, but the wings at Mac's Tavern make me want to drive the two hours to Philly just to eat there again. We got the barbecue wings and two weeks later I'm still thinking about them. We got there late right before the kitchen was about to close, and while the waitress did... More

Food menu was ok but limited. Disappointed mainly due to expensive price. Service was friendly. Hoping for a more diversified and unique selection of food to justify the price.

Stopped in because it was raining, we were hungry and I didn't want pizza. We were just looking for a quick sandwich and a beer, but what we got was a very pleasant surprise. I ordered the Bourbonic Steak sandwich (rib eye, mushrooms, onions, gouda). Daughter ordered the summertime chili and hubby ordered a burger. WOW! My steak sandwich was... More

My wife and I stopped here for a beer. Mac’s is located in historic Old City. They have a great selection of locals and micro-brews from all over the US, not as many as other brewpubs, but a great selection across flavor profiles. We didn’t eat here so cannot comment on the food, but the locals say the food here... More

As a vegetarian it is always difficult to find a good place to eat that won't make me sick. My husband had gone next door to "Sonny's" to get his Philly cheese steak while I inquired about eating here. I informed the manager my dietary issues and allergies. We determined there was something I could eat. I was elated to... More

By no means was this a blow your socks off experience, but it was worth stopping in. Good was good and they have a hand full of good beers.

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.
