My son, being a fan of Always Sunny, wanted to eat here. I called to verify their hours and got a very noncommittal answer. We found our way, and the place does not look like much of anything. We ordered dinner....and OMG. Everything that we got was delicious! Even the fries were amazing. This place undersells itself, but it is... More

Stopped in while visiting colleges. Great local beer selection and nice food options (cheese steak rolls a good appetizer). Hit the spot on a blast furnace hot day in Philly. Convenient to Penn's Landing. We came in at a down time so could not add much as far as the fun factor but would definitely return.

We stopped in for a midday lunch. Service was great and good was good. Price was mid range and fair for a family of four. We only ha appetizers, so cannot speak to the main menu.

While in Philly on business this week four of us decided to leave the hotel and find something different for dinner. We wandered about in the wrong direction more than once before asking a few questions, getting turned back around and end up at this fun little place. A real "surfs up" looking guy with a red ball cap turned... More

Well, when you wander this area there are many eateries whose hype may not live up to your expectation, never heard of Mac's, so we wandered in. The bartender as it turned out was also our server, not a problem. He was friendly, and attentive in just the right way, we needed to savor our meal as we were headed... More

Excellent food. The hand cut fries were delicious! And a great selection of beer. Y vegan daughter found something to eat here. Would definitely recommend this place! The hours are wrong listed here.

Stopped in for dinner because I love the show Always Sunny in Philadelphia (several of the actors own part of the bar). Unlike the show, this bar was very classy. Prices were decent and it seemed like the locals were joking with the bar staff. Friendly atmosphere.

We stopped in for a few drinks and snacks on a Saturday afternoon. This is a nice clean place, spacious and great atmosphere. The owners are the creators of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" but this bar does not resemble "Paddy's Pub". We had the hot chicken wings and the cheesesteak eggroll. Both were very good and above average bar... More

As a huge fan of It's always Sunny.. visiting Mac's Tavern was a must while in Philly. We nipped in for a quick pint, which ended up being more like 8 pints a meal and an accumulation of new friends to show us round the city. The atmosphere was really relaxed and friendly, from the bar staff and the other... More
