Nice size. We ate early and enjoy fine food. Not really there for lots of drinking. Many TV screens and seems to be a Chicago transplant with many sports teams symbols everywhere. That's good.

After taking a tour, then walking around town on our own for a while, we decided to drop in to Mac's for a cold beer and something to eat...and boy are we glad we did. Not only was the waitress very nice and attentive, the food was really good as well. It was a perfect spot to take and break... More

We stopped in for a late lunch and a cold beer after walking around Charleston for quite some time. The service was very quick and the beer was ice cold. Can't ask for much more than that. I had a sandwich and salad and it was very filling. Would definitely return if I'm in the area again.

I love the Cubs. Like really love the Cubs. So when I came across that beautiful Cubs flag out front, I had to stop. Ordered a bloody mary, which was ok. The staff was very friendly. But I'm not giving any Cubs bar anything less than 5 stars.

This was a great place to cap off the night with pints and shots. The service was very friendly and knew the local craft selection very well. Great venue to watch the game.

Came for dinner looking for Irish food in a pub scene but only found it with Shepherds Pie. Authentic? Doubtful, but it was at least tasty for the most part. For a pub it was relaxing, once you got into the high tops, for the booths were not comfortable as the seats didn't cover you (felt like you were sitting... More

Mac's Pub & Grub was actually my husband's pick, and I'll have to say I wasn't too excited, but man oh man, the food proved me wrong. We had the Irish nachos and they were killer! My buffalo chicken wrap was honestly one of the best wraps I had ever had! It's for sure a good spot to watch sports,... More

Fun casual spot with cold beer, good friendly atmosphere and okay pub fare. We enjoyed our stop there. We usually go to finer dinning places when we get downtown, but this was a quick bite before a meeting and sports played a role.
