We sat outside on the patio to enjoy the good weather. Inside looked like fun too. Great bar setup! My husband definitely wants to go back so he can try out the different Whiskys! There's a SCOTTISH THEME, DID I SAY! Decorated for good times! Fun! Good beer on tap and priced right. Fish Tacos were delicious! My girlfriend didn't... More

After 8 months of being apart of the neighborhood. I can finally give a restaurant 5 stars. The food here has FLAVOR!!! Best poutine fries on the planet and the French onion soup tastes like it has been marinating all day. Fresh herbs and piping hot cheese makes this dish. The beef pot pie is huge... enough to share or... More

MacAllisters has a quaint atmosphere, but there is nothing ordinary about the food. Every dish I had, or my friends had, was excellent. Not one to be adventurous, I still had to admit the Scottish eggs are something everyone should try and enjoy. The onion rings are perfection, and the meal was beyond good. I enjoyed an organic hamburger, a... More

My wife and I moved to the area last month and have been eating our way through local restaurants. Since this one is across the store from the bike shop i visit, we stopped in for lunch. They bill themselves as Scottish, and they have some Scottish dishes on their menu but it is basically American cuisine. They do have... More

Being Scottish we had to visit here seeing we were only staying just a short trip from here. The bar itself is very nice and the staff are very nice too. We only had drinks and cocktails here which were very nice.

Enjoyed this Scottish Pub, esp. bottle of Dragon Head Stout (Scottish). Tried a scottish egg app-fabulous, took server's advice, Cassie, and took home some jalapeño poppers with the stuffing the same coating as on the egg-also fabulous. Wife had veg. soup - fresh and delicious, then pulled pork sandwich. I had Frutti de Mari, mussels, clams, shrimp on linguine -... More

We went to eat here after the movie. It was the first time so we didn't know what to expect. We ordered fish which was absolutely delicious. Excellent portion and excellent taste. The staff were both very efficient and friendly. Did not have to ask for anything. Everything we needed was brought to the table upon our order. A special... More
