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

If you can tolerate noise and confusion this is the place for you. The bar food and appetizers are very good. It's been our experience that the entrées are somewhat inconsistent. Stick with the apps and burgers while you enjoy their superb craft beers. Excellent outdoor seating when the weather allows. I'm sure we'll return soon.

Good service, although perhaps a little overly enthusiastic - anyway, the ribs and wings were good but a colleague really didn't like the "home made" crab cakes. Worth a visit though as the range of home brewed ales is excellent

We've been here several times and the food is just ok, nothing great. It's a central place to meet and can take a fair-sized group. Service is fair and prices are moderate. Parking is also a problem here on busy nights as there isn't enough. Not high on our list.

So, we reserved the lower level as we had about 30 people and they reserved the up stairs room for us which was vey crammed so we had an additional table outside of the room. The food was very average and only had their own beers which isn't a big deal, but wanted something different. Also, the service was pretty... More
