“Good food, nothing spectacular”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We visited while on a recent trip to Philadelphia. The food was good and fresh, but was nothing spectacular. It is conveniently located and does have afternoon hours, unlike many places in the area that close between 2pm-5pm. Service was good as well.

“It's Always Great at Mac's”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Like most others, we were drawn here because of Always Sunny. The decor has some subtle Always Sunny references (Chase Utley jersey on the wall, several items on the menu, etc.). The beer selection is extensive, the food is great, and the atmosphere always fun. Prices are a bit high, but what do you expect in Center City?

“A solid pub-style bar with a great menu”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Like many of the prior reviewers, I'm a "Sunny" fan and was anxious to visit here. I wasn't expecting it to look like the bar on the TV show...actually, I didn't know what to expect.

My wife and I visited on a late Saturday afternoon. It looks like any other pub/tavern. The beer selection was quite large. There was plenty of seating available, including a few outdoor tables. The weather was great, and we took two barstools at the small rail in front of the open windows. So we got to do some people watching, and more importantly, we got to peak at what the outdoor patrons were eating. We didn't have time to eat, but I'm really looking forward to going back because the menu was large and the food look fantastic for pub/bar food.

“All good”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Went in with wife and two kids. This place has dive bar decor but way better than dive bar food. Great selection of tasty beers, one of the best steak sandwiches i've had, and good burgers and fries. Other stuff on the menu looked good too, but i came in with a cheesesteak in mind so that's what i had.

“A surprising gem!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

I'm a Sunny fan, which prompted my visit. The food amazed. It wasn't greasy pub food but delicious treats. They had some great, cheap cider on tap. Absolutely delicious. Definitely recommend.
