“good and bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

The nachos were totally awesome. We didn't care for the pizza at all. The marinara sause had a spice in it we didn't care for. Our server Valerie was great.

“Nice place, nice atmosphere, huge bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Short rib sliders were very good as was the pulled pork sandwich and beer. This place is huge, clean and very nice. I went for lunch and will go back soon.

“Great Steak / Server with Bad Attitude”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

The steak was delicious and tender, but the server was atrocious. She barely stopped to ask if our food was okay. The deserts were very large - 2 to 4 persons could share one.

The server, Colleen, was abrupt and unpleasant and made it clear she didn't have time for us. She was very crabby impatient and turned a nice meal into unpleasant experience.

The manager was wonderful. Don't judge just by the awful server -- the food and mgr were great.

“good food w/ good atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

We had a nice meal here, although we had to wait 20 minutes even with a reservation. The Steak out was delicious as was the pizza and the Caesar salad with tuna. Had a nice beer selection as well. Server was friendly and attentive. Will try this again!

“Absolutely Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Went to MeKenzie Brew House on Oct 1, 2012. I ate at the bar. I tried the IPA (wonderful) and the Pale Ale (very nice). I also tried the Seared Tuna appetizer. I consider myself a Ahi Tuna snob and was NOT dissappointed. I ordered it Blackened Rare, and it came out PERFECT! The bar tender was extremely friendly and very helpful. By far, one of the best Brew Houses I have ever been to... If you are in the Berwyn PA area, you must put this place at the top of the list.
