“Surprising find - in a strip mall, no less!”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Full disclosure: low expectations.

Reality? A decent place with a real sense of enjoyment about itself. I was very surprised!

A well thought out menu really does include options for nearly every appetite - from Jamaican beef patties to calamari, lollipop lamb chops, and a Viva Las Vegan veggie burger.

Criticism? With TV's in every corner, distractions abound. The wine list is not, nor I suppose should be, extensive or ambitious - but given the diversity of the menu, I hoped to have been given more choices to balance the wide ranging offerings...

Still - very much worth a repeat visit and very much worth much more samplings!

“just a bar”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

The food was unhealthy and just mediocre service and the place is too dark. Drinks ok but will not go back.

“Lunch, dinner, drinks: ALWAYS a great meal”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

Big portions, diverse menu, lively bar scene in the evening with real restaurant food makes Mackenzies a great place for friends, family, even kids. I could just eat off of their appetizer menu and be happy!
