We dropped in with our small kids on a Sunday afternoon for a quick lunch on our way out of town. Downtown Charleston is a cornucopia of gastronomic delights, but is woefully ill-equipped to cater to our small people in that there are tons of fine dining and bars around, but not too many non-chain places appropriate for the preschool set.

Mac's doesn't have any high chairs or booster seats, and since it is primarily a bar, that is understandable. Because we are parents of the year, we took our babies into the bar because it didn't look like there was a wait for a table. Ann, our server, offered up the couch and table area in the front, and it suited our needs well.

The food was a notch above typical pub grub, and will most likely help prevent or cure a hangover by lining your belly with some grease. The most exciting menu item was a Macaroni and Cheese Sandwich, which I'm told was a college invention of the owner of Mac's. I agree with the menu, it was exactly how it sounds. It was glorious comfort food, and I enjoyed every bite of its carb-laden, cheesy goodness. Sweet Potato Tots and Honey Butter also standout in what was previously a pretty quiet art gallery on East Bay Street.
