This place is great. We went on a Sunday night and it was super quiet (apparently this is not normal) but not completely dead. The bartenders were super polite, the patrons friendly. If I lived here, it would definitely be my local bar.

The beer choices? OUTSTANDING. I was super impressed and made sure to try as many as possible. I paid for it the next day, haha.

As for the food...make sure you order a burger with bacon, blue cheese and caramelized onions. This along with the delicious fries will have your eyes rolling to the back of your head. Seriously.

Good place to meet friends after business, a mixed client, good drink with nice selection of beers, one of the best Philly Cheese Steaks in the city

Was hoping for something resembling the bar from "it's always sunny".

Aside from a small painting on the wall and the occasional photo their was really no tie to the show. No clever inside jokes or even an attempt to replicate the look.

Needs some attention to detail.

Tried to go to Mac's for dinner, unfortunately there isn't alot of seating so we weren't able to get a table for 8. Mac's is owned at least partly by Mac and Dee from "It's Always Sunny" so it was kinda cool to have a beer at a place owned by those guys. There is one picture of them on the wall but otherwise it's a pretty normal bar. The environment itself was pretty cool, Irish pub style with a good beer selection and friendly staff. There was a Notre Dame game on which I think attributed to the large crowd. Other than the mild frustration with not getting a table, I enjoyed the atmosphere at this place and would definitely return.

Went to Mac's Tavern to grab a quick bite to eat, and to escape the midday heat and humidity. What a treat! Great food, great service, and many interesting photos and memorabilia on the walls. Touring the historical sights was ok but thest was the best part of the trip!
