This place would get a 5 except for the handling of my daughter's peanut/tree nut allergy. The food was good and we all enjoyed it, but my nut allergic daughter suffered a mild allergic reaction afterward even though she alerted our waiter to her allergy...and asked if her choice was nut safe. He acted like he had checked with the kitchen staff, but clearly that was not the case. I don't know why restaurants can't understand and just help a person with allergies by checking ingredients and guiding them to choose a safe option.More

I picked up six hungry college kids from ice skating near the zoo. Of course, they were starving. Found MacKenzie River on Trip Advisor primarily because it was close by...GREAT choice. The booth they gave us comfortably sat the 7 of us, our server was...efficient and helpful, and the food was plentiful and tasty.More

Visiting Idaho Falls and was in the mood for wings. The first place told me it would be 2 hours before I could pick up my order. Yeah, ok, no. So I called MacKenzie’s and was told 25 minutes. Ok, great! Then I tasted the...food! Excellent! I especially like the Thai peanut wings!More

We had lunch at MacKenzie River on a beautiful day at a lovely outside table. We both had the combo salad and half-sandwich. It was delicious, and more than enough food. The waitress was friendly and helpful. As we were just passing through Idaho Falls,...this was pretty much our only exposure to the town. It gave us a great impression of what seems like a lovely, friendly place.More

By far the best burger I’ve ever had, and I’m a burger snob! I ordered the rise n shine burger. Thick cut bacon with brown sugar, deep fried jalapeños, fried egg, cheddar on a 1/2 burger, with delicious buns. Stop here if you love home...cooked foodMore

My husband and I ate dinner at this restaurant in August of 2020. We were interested in sitting outside but all the outside tables were taken. We sat inside as we did not have to wait for a table. The tables were appropriately physically distanced...apart. Our server was friendly and provided good service. I ordered a local pilsner beer and my husband had a glass of wine. We shared the beet salad. We ordered a small thin crust vegetable pizza - I believe it was called the MacKenzie pizza. The small pizza had six pieces - we took one piece home. The salad was fresh and the pizza was tasty. This restaurant was well attended. We would return to this restaurant again.More

Eating out on a Sunday night in Idaho Falls is very difficult. So we were grateful to find this place open. We watched the Super Bowl and had a nice meal. The pizza crust was very good but not outstanding. Nice beer list and efficient...bar tender. I would go back. I sure beats Pizza Papa whatever.More

Met a friend here for dinner, my first time eating here. Was expecting just pizza but they have an extensive menu and the pizzas are not typical. They have a good variety of pizzas with toppings I haven't seen at other pizza places. They also...have a good selection of beers and a full bar. The background music and ambient noise was low enough you could have a quiet conversation. I will go here again next time I'm in Idaho Falls.More
