We sat outside since it was so crowded inside. Great place inside for watching games. The fried pickles were amazing. Light , crisp batter with tasty ranch sauce! Servers were very busy and were a lot of fun. We will be back!!

If you are looking for a terrific place to have a couple of drinks before you go to dinner, I suggest you order the "Grapefruit Vodka Mule". It was my 1st and I must admit not my last. I tried the same drink in other...bars and restaurants in Charleston and none of them could hold a candle to Mac's. It is the best and I'll be back to have more on the next visit.More

Would love to go back to Mac's. The food and staff were wonderful and friendly! Our servers were Rich and Miles. Close to Market Place.

Accidentally found this place and thought it was great! The food was really good and the waiter was awesome. Cool ambiance and great place to watch any game you want! I had the Mac and cheese grilled cheese and it was so good. Very unique!

We popped in for a drink and sat at the bar. The service was great, and we ended up getting six wings and a burger. Both were amazing. I definitely recommend the dry rub on the wings. Since they weren't busy, they did three of...each for us. We added pimento and bacon to the burger, and you can't go wrong with that. Beer selection is pretty good, and we certainly enjoyed ours! Bartender made great recommendations based on our preferences. We will be back.More

We ordered two veggie burgers and they didn’t inform us that they only had 1 veggie burger left. Instead of letting us know they only had 1 left and asking us what we would like to order instead, they simply brought over a regular burger...with meat without telling us. We told the staff and our waitress seemed to act as if we were the one with the problem. She was indifferent and barely apologized.More

Stopped by on Ash Wednesday to get out of the rain and have a beer. We had seen the Old Style sign in the window, but were skeptical of a "Chicago" style tavern in the deep south. We were wrong. It was a great place!!!...I have to settle up with God for eating meat on a holy day, but the Chicago hot dog was worth it. And the Italian beef wasn't the worst. Any tavern that knows what a grenade is, let alone serves them, gets an A+ in my book. Throw in Silver Strike bowling and I really didn't want to leave.More

We typically have a travel rule not to visit same place twice. Broke our rule...love Mac's. Service is excellent and pub food delicious! Affordable and plenty of retro games to keep you entertained. Plenty of TV's for all your games! Must do in Charleston for...a cool local hangoutMore

Your typical bar food. Inside is pretty loud! I ordered a grilled turkey sandwich and they burnt one side of it (black toast) but stuck that side facing down on my plate (assuming I wouldn’t notice). I also found they had smeared some type of...hot pepper sauce inside of my sandwich (it was supposed to come with just turkey and cheese). I was afraid to send it back because of what else they might do to it. If they get your order right, the food probably wouldn’t be too bad. But don’t count on it.More
