MacKenzies is a great Irish Pub across from High Park on Bloor #1982. The food is real good in fact they make the best fries anywhere in the city. The fish and chips are the Friday special usually and are delicious; but share it they...More

This is a local pub. $5 beer, generously poured....the Mac's....is the only thing that I can endorse. Today I had their eggplant parmigiana. Wonderful! It came with male salad, yellowed with rotted bits. Where is the owner/manager??? Why would he allow this? The sliders are...More

I went there a few times during summer and food and service have always been great. Deluxe grill cheese is my favorite but everything is excellent. Pleasant staff.

Was going several times a week, before I moved out of town. As a former long time resident of BWV I can say that this is probably the best pub in the area. Decent food and my favorite draft (Mill St). Excellent brunch on weekends....More

Since I live nearby, I would go in frequently from now on. Good beer, and outstanding pub food (the chimichanga and the spinach and crab dip nachos were absurdly delicious). There are also some open mic and trivia nights. Sadly, some of the waiters are...More

Thanks for the kind review. Yes we had some problems with staff but we are working to improve things. Unfortunately we had four longtime employees quit at roughly the same time. (Late summer) One went to Ottawa, to be with his partner. One went up...More

Been at this pub a couple of times. I would not recommend it. The so called owner there is drunk most of the times, always being rude to customers, and complaining that he deserves at least 30% tip for his disgusting service and hospitality, Unless...More

Hmmm. As an owner who never serves and drinks lightly and occasionally, I must assume you mixed us up with someone else.
