I ate at Mac and Bob's on a friend's recommendation a couple of years ago and couldn't wait to go back. They offer quick, friendly service and great food at a great price.

Saw the restaurant in the hotel's notebook. Checked the menu out online and it looked pretty good, so we went for dinner.
Nice place with very friendly staff.Lots of locals in for dinner. I ordered a fillet, medium rare and baked potato. My wife had the chicken platter. Both came with house salads that were fresh and crisp. I had a flight of craft beers and she had the house merlot. My steak was delicious - perfectly cooked, with a grilled flavor-did not need a steak knife to cut it. It was large enough to take a portion home. The four pieces of chicken were grilled, as well.
You will not be disappointed with this restaurant.

Try the Pittsburgh style steak for a sizzling treat. Salem salad is an option. Good martinis and a good place for lunch or dinner.

Went for Friday night and there was a wait for a table inside so we opted to go thru the restaurant and eat outside where there was no wait...it was great. The weather made it work and made sense for us. The food was good the waiters were great...some at our party had a big meal, others had burgers and they all were great!

Food was well prepared and reasonably priced.Service was very good and attentive. They have one of the best draft beer selections I have seen, if this is your thing, while remaining a good place to bring a family.
