Love McAllister's! Have been here many, many times since 2010. Always liked the original menu but the updated menu by the new owners is even better. Food is consistently fresh and very tasty. The service is excellent & friendly -- if you have any dietary restrictions, they'll always try to accommodate. All in all, it's always a treat to go to McAllister's for a meal!

I had read on TripAdvisor That the Beer battered fish was heavily battered and the manager replied that it can be ordered lightly battered. I received a large beautiful piece of fish and great chips.
The Manager is very active and he visited every table.

We dined at MacAllisters during the November, 1st Friday, charitable, street festival, which in itself is a popular event. Although all the restaurants were full, and outside seating was full, we were able to be seated quickly. The menu, mostly, consisted of comfort food, but there was something for everyone. My coconut shrimp and the stuffed jalapeno pepper apps were very tasty. Salads were large, & the entrees enjoyable. MacAllisters is a good place to stop if one is in the area.

Scoping out Lakewood Ranch model homes made us starving and late for lunch. We didn't know where to go but it was 2:00 and we had no time to waffle.

The place was empty ......for a very short time....as more diners followed us in for lunch. It's a Scottish pub with the menu to match plus all your pub favorites.

My companion ordered the Reuben hot dog special with fries and I the frutte de mar. Seafood with red sauce over capellini pasta.

Mine was ok but the Reuben hot dog was amazing! Tasty and a unique blend of two favorites. The gooey melted cheese was perfect and the fries were fresh and piping hot.

Nice selection of beers and drinks. They brought us a few beer samples since they didn't have our favorite Belgian ale.

Super service!
