Mckenzie used to be my favorite restaurant ever. But after going there over a span of 4 years, the quality went downhill a TON. To the point that I ordered my favorite meal and the waitress said she didn't recommend it! It is still ok but it's not that great

Came here for dinner and was sorely disappointed by the atmosphere and service. Our waiter did the absolute minimum, never asking us if we cared for refills or if we needed anything else. Food was nothing special either. Would not come back.

Some great names for the local brews (e.g. the emergency golf match Amber Ale). The beer is good and the food was above average. We were here on a Sunday night and the restaurant was busy with a good atmosphere.

Stopped in for lunch during the week on way to Villanova. Really nice salads and great sandwiches. Reasonably priced and good size portions. Waiter says they cut out middle man and source straight from local farms thus better prices. They have great on- site brewed beers. Had the winter warmer

We just finished a dinner at this Brew house and were disappointed. The ribs had a good barbecue sauce but were dry and over-cooked. Sweet potato fries were cold. Sliders were good, but nothing special. The place was loud, but is expected for this type of restaurant. The food came in a reasonable amount of time, but after we placed... More

Happening place and was able to take a big group. Poutin was very good and burgers were fantastic. Beer choices good. Service decent.

The atmosphere of this place has a positive vibe. The service is lacking, as in you feel they just don't care. The menu is ok bar fare. Wimpy cold fries served with the burgers weren't eaten. Veggie burger was mushy, not firm. Beef burger was tasty. Artichoke dip appetizer was delicious. Should have started and stopped with that.

Eight of us went for lunch. Nearly an hour after seating, we asked where is our food! It was explained that there was a group in a private room who took precedence over us. We were not happy with that information! Food then quickly came - but promptly sent back as the food was cold. A manager appeared. To the... More

I never understand we this place isn't mobbed. Great food, great beer and you can even hear to have a conversation. The deck is great during the warmer months and has a nice outdoor fireplace. We been coming here for 10 years and this is still our favorite restaurant. Oh, and did I mention that it is very reasonable too.... More

We've been here a few times, the sausages are the best we've had! All of the food has been good. When we're in the area we try to get here for dinner and a beer.
