Macado's has a menu literally as long as your leg! They are predominately sandwiches, wings, burgers and the likes. But Macado's does them well to say the least, everything from specialty clubs, steak sandwiches, fish and wings and the other bar type of offerings. They have a fabulous potato salad, so get this as your side. Not if you order... More

I often eat here when I'm visiting. Food is good, great place to hang out with friends. Love sitting on the porch and people watch.

Macado's is an across the board five star restaurant, especially for the prices they charge. Let me do a comparison and contrast. Spend eight to ten bucks at a fast food place or Macado's for lunch, which one would be better? No contest. Yes, really, you can enjoy a fabulously delicious sandwich and side at "Do's" for the same price... More

Basic college town restaurant and bar. Staff is friendly and atmosphere is antique and unique. Very casual and an extensive menu of bar food.

Old style tap room downstairs and some outdoor seating. We went on a Saturday, there was football on the TV and business was brisk. Beer list was good, the Reuben was delicious and the wait staff was attentive despite the crowd.

Fun lively environment with solid delicious food!! Menu is huge with a variety of choices. Every dish was delivered perfectly as ordered and in our entire group, there was not one complaint!! Service impeccable--surprisingly good for such a casual place!

Crazy busy at Macado's. VMI weekends make this place crazy. May be ok other weekends for pub food, but avoid busy times. They delivered someone else's food, or got our just wrong. They had to remake everything. It was a drill. It will be awhile before we return:

Food was great but we had to wait an hour to get any of it on a day that was far from busy. Cool interior. Overall, not impressed.

I was amazed by the sheer volume of sandwiches offered at this restaurant and the fact that, if you can't find one you like, you can make your own. However, the service was somewhat slow and the woman who seated us was not the friendliest. But overall, this place is worth the time, because the sandwiches are phenomenal.

Stopped in just for desserts. Cinnamon Sensation (cinnamon roll and ice cream) was excellent. Cheesecake was good in a portion big enough to share. Very noisy.
