Had family visiting from out of town, went there for happy hour. The happy hour menu is not that good, but the rest is. The beer is excellent (but too pricey for $5 a pint), food is ok, and ambience is nice. TV's all over the bar made it easy to glance at the Olympic games.

My medium-rare filet mignon was delivered closer to medium-well. The fries were greasy. My daughters strip steak tasted very good (according to her). However her refill (coke) was delivered when we were ready to leave. After having got a set of complimentary desserts we left not fully satisfied.

Beer was flat and smelled of dirty tap lines. Fries were mushy and terrible. Three vege burgers, a cup of soup and 2 beers, $70 without tip for lunch? Never again... The women's bathroom was a mess at ! PM in the afternoon. ??????

I was here for a private party of about 40 people in the pub downstairs. We had a buffet style dinner. We ate salad, turkey, fish, roast beef, pasta, mashed potatoes and everything was delicious. I highly recommend a reasonable priced dinner for a private party. They gave 2 pool tables as well. Good music and fun!

We visited the restaurant as a large group and while the food was good, the service was terrible. Another party of ten was seated after us by about 15 minutes, they ordered, got their food and their spilt check about 10 minutes before our server came to divide the check. When we brought up the slow service and lack of... More

The place is large and has a great bar. The food was just satisfactory but nothing to "write home about". Service was fast and courteous.

Visiting a customer in the area that really likes their beer (but I'm not a beer drinker) so headed here for drinks and appetizers. Was it bad? No, but was not impressed. Server was inattentive at times and the food was ok.

Was visiting Malvern, PA on business recently and ate at McKenzie Brew House. The Scallop dish was tasty and the service while there was excellent.

When I asked for a tasting flight, I was told there are 6 beers and I could only choose 1, the other 5 where what the brewery wanted to push. Not my idea for tasting beers that I like. Did stay for an app and which was not bad. Saw other food delivered to patrons it they looked acceptable.

I was expecting more. The beer was Ok. The IPA was not very hoppy. Hey, no one is perfect. I ordered a burger. It was not cooked to order and was missing ingredients. End of the world...no. The fries were cold. Hmmm. No one ever came by to check on whether the food was even ok. No One.I looked, but... More
