My husband & I had a late lunch/early dinner here one day during our 3-day stay in Sioux Falls. We had good service and plenty of 'pie for the price we paid; there was even a tad left over. Having familiarized ourselves with the downtown...area, we parked and walked here, then continued our exploration of the shops all around Phillips Avenue. Glad we stopped by!More

I’ve eaten here several times over the last year and it is pretty darn good. The GF pizza options are excellent and consistently delicious as is the wedge salad. I was a little disappointed on my last meal with the GF Reuben pizza being a...little dry and short on meat but still tasty. Great ambience, friendly service and good food. It’s a family fave.More

Thank you for the kind review. Sorry to hear our portions on the Reuben we clearly not up to par. Let us know that happened next time you are in so we are able to make it right with you!

What is it with people in this town, so few wear masks in public places, even indoors. After this, we only got delivery or take out. The tables were not spaced far enough apart, the staff did wear masks, but almost no customer did. Even...when walking around, entering and existing. My pizza was ok, but not that great. At least the beer was good. Wait staff was fine, even if saying "heard" in response to orders was a bit off-putting.More

I enjoyed lunch at this grill and pub. I was not disappointed in the quality or the amount of food received with the lunch special. The price was very fair also. Keep up the good work!

Went here on a Friday night and the place was very busy, the waitlist was 30-45 minutes. However it didn’t take that long to get seated. When we did get seated the service was good. Our food and drinks came out reasonably quick considering how...busy they were. We ordered a pizza to share. It was thin crust and really good. No complaints.More

Arrived and your waitress took our order. Another barman/waiter shooed her off and said it wasn't her station. took our order. I said I like my pizza crisp and said when you pick up a slice it should not droop. To empathize the point I...said they should give it a Viagra, He said he totally got my point. half hour later I get my pizza, picked it up a slice and it is a gooey sloppy half cooked mess definitely not crisp. I politely return it. He says no problem. I sit there with my friends. They eat their salads, Drank their drinks. Waiting on me. After waiting 30 minutes for what should have taken 5 minutes to place the pizza back in the oven to make it crisp, Nothing, not one acknowledgement that they were working on it, on its way, can we refresh your drinks, you know the drill. Totally ignored. I got" the point! P{aid my tab told them to take off the pizza, my waiter said" I totally agree. No apology. or reasonable excuse. The vibe I got was "F$%k Y&o! I have not left a tip since I was a broke kid in the early 70's until tonight. Thank you for ruining a perfectly good evening with superior bad service and attitude. i was a supporter until tonight. That is what makes me feel really stupid!More

We stopped in Sioux Falls overnight and decided to stop at MacKenzie for dinner. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere and was pretty busy for a Thursday night. We were seated in the back of the restaurant in a large booth. The beer selection was...decent and cold. The steak and blue cheese appetizer was divine! Highly recommended. The kids had buffalo chicken pasta (very spicy) and pepperoni pizza (handmade). My husband had the Reuben which was dry. No thousand island dressing? I had the taco trio which was also cold and dry, although very flavorful. Our waiter provided decent service but perhaps rushed us a bit to order because he “just got three more tables”. Room for improvement but overall good.More
