“Not bad...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

We were looking for a simple bite to eat and true to its name, there's drinks and pub style food. The service was okay, considering there were not too many people there. I had a basic salad and the spouse had a Greek salad. Nothing special but not bad, either. Decent value but not my first...or second choice for a lunch stop.

“ONCE WAS ENOUGH”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

If you like to sit among a lot of mouth drunken college students and listen to blaring music so loud you cannot carry on a normal conversation then this is the place for you, not me.
The fish n chips were the worst I've ever had. The sauce that came with it tasted sour or even spoiled.
The only consolation is our server was very polite but even that could not make up for the totally tasteless food.

“Great little bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

We stopped in by the flying of the Chicago bears flag, and was greeted by friendly bar staff, and great drink prices. We went back on Sunday to catch the Jacksonville game. Don't walk by, stop in for a drink

“College Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

Sat down and eventual was not greeted by the waitress, she breezed by taking long enough drop the menus on the table.
There was no friendly salutation.

Food was very good, beer was the usual bar fare but a nice variety and equally good.

A good value in the Market Street area without the tourist crowd.

“Great lunch without the Mothers Day crowd.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Trying to stay away from the fancy places on Mother's Day we popped into Mac's for lunch. Being sports fans we really enjoyed the atmosphere and appreciated the televisions so that we could watch the game.

My husband had the chicken wrap sandwich which he said was fantastic and figured it had nearly a half a pound of chicken in it. His side was fried mushrooms which were also very good. I had chicken tenders that were hand battered and excellent. My side was carrot and celery sticks.

Our service was very good and we both thought the value of the meal was fair. All the meals we saw served looked great too.

The restaurant was easy walking distance to Market Street.
