“Great place with different twist on some traditional foods”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

I have had both lunch and dinner here and can't wait to go back for more.
I had the short ribs for dinner and they were great. My friend had red snapper which was also delicious.
For lunch I had a chicken cheese steak with smoked gouda, caramelized onion, roasted peppers, garlic tomato aioli. It was great.
They have some very interesting salads that I can't wait to try.
The place is well appointed and the bar area is HUGE.
Service was very good on both our visits.

“Good ambiance but bad food and service.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

We ate lunch at this establishment while we were visiting relative in Pennsylvania. The restaurant is very spacious and had a good ambiance. However the food was not good. We ordered two salads and a pizza. The salads were big. The lettuce in the salads was wilted and frozen. the chicken was like eating leather. It appeared to have been cooked the day before and then warmed up in the microwave oven. The chicken did not taste good. The pizza was also not good. We thought they had used can mushrooms, but the manager said that the mushrooms were fresh. The waitress was a very nice young lady with no training. this review is for the McKensie Brew House in Devon, PA.

“Rude Reception, Highly disorganized, chaotic”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2012

Visit - Sat. 1/28/12 Location - the Devon, PA McKenzie's Brewhouse
Had reservations but that didnt mean anything. Receptionist was highly abrasive in her speech. She said I didn't reserve early enough as I had just made it at noon and barked at me that I had to wait. She was rude and condescending but obviously "in charge" as the manager could do nothing to get her to speak in any other many to customers. The customers are treated as if she were herding cats and they were a nuisance to her.She is the most disrespectful hostess I've ever encountered. Staff is untrained and confused. Atmosphere is loud, and chaotic. Horrible experience - food just so-so. Never again! Go some place else if you want a pleasant reception and atmosphere with good food - it's not at McKenzie's in Devon.Reservations are accepted but not honored.
