Monday evening quiz brings a large group of local expats to this venue. Very good Caesar Salad with proper bacon. Good live music most of the week. Stay away from the wine - this really is a pub!

Great drink and dessert. Like the fried calamari and mojitos. The live band is not bad but can be too loud. Cant really chat without whispering to the ear or simply speak louder. Overall, good hangout place with friends.

If you wander around at Straits Key and you see a crowd - you know you are near Healy Mac's. When the neighboring places are pretty empty this place is full and there is a reason to it - it is a nice place with atmosphere and a welcoming and nice staff. Can't say a lot about the food served... More

A nice watering hole coupled with authentic western food and great service from the Filippina servers (Bangladeshi servers can't grasp what you are saying or comprehend your order, so best to be served by the Filipinas).We have been frequenting this pub for ages, but I have to say, since Trevor the new GM arrived, standards moved up many notches.

The chicken panini was delicious, the fries were crisp perfection, and the dressing on the salad was nice and zingy. My friends who got the pizza say it is some of the best around. But best of all was our wonderful waitress who took very good care of our party of nine.

I've been to Healy Macs several times. I had their sausage platter a couple of weeks ago and it was quite good. Which made me all the more curious to try their expensive burger. (43rm + GST + service = about 50rm). That's an expensive burger. It must be something special, I thought, so I ordered it last week. And... More
