We stopped in at Mac's on a busy Friday night while staying overnight in Columbus. The service was good, the menu had the typical pub food but also had a variety of unexpected dishes. The portions were huge and we quickly realized we could have...More

After attending an early show at the Basement I found myself on N High St looking for an unpretentious place to grab a bite. I was somewhat surprised that the neighborhood seemed to roll up the sidewalks after 9 or 10pm. After a bit of...More

This is supposed to have a Scottish feel to it, but save the name and a couple of minor items, it basically was just a neighborhood pub and grille. Location though was good, servers were friendly, as was bar staff.

Living next to this fine establishment, I may sound partial, but they won my love. A Scottish egg and a Bloody Mary will always set you straight. The staff is friendly and the food is great. A patio would only enhance the experience but, alas,...More

Went here with my daughter for a late lunch on the Prestige Dining Club card. Started with the Scotch Egg...could've knocked off a few of those! Then had the chili which was also good. Daughter, who is a light eater, had a child's portion of...More
