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

We had lunch here. The Greek Salad and Veggie burger were really good. They had a nice selection of beer as well. It was a nice atmosphere.

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
