We had a large group of 30. We didn't have a reservation, but; we called ahead and they said they could accommodate us, but; we must get one check. No problem...We walked in the restaurant and the manager said he wasn't sure if he had seating for us because they had a party coming in. I asked if we could... More

Not my first time there, but this time I was not impressed with the bartender/server. Went for happy hour with co-workers. One co-worker asked for a Bahama Mama and the server wasn't sure what was in it. Turned out, she was the bartender and she didn't make a bahama mama. My co-worker said whatever she made was good though.

I work in a large corporate center a few miles from McKenzies in Malvern. Every time I go there for lunch, there is a large back up in the hostess area, and a long delay in being seated, waited-on and served. I was there for just over an hour and a half today, and this seems to be the norm.... More

For the service and food, I felt this place was a little overpriced. Particularly the drinks. My team had a large party and the staff did fairly ok with handling the large group, but they weren't overly nice about anything. My food was good, and my teammates said their food was good too, but it didn't knock our socks off.

Wanted a steak but local chain steak house had a one-hour-plus wait. Immediate seating at McKenzie's. Steak was done as ordered but I think it was one grade lower than Outback. Not bad but not great. Early for dinner so very few other patrons. Server was suitably attentive. The beer was very good - duh, it is a brew house.

I used to frequent McKenzie's, but after my last trip there, I was really disappointed. The food was good, but the service was terrible. Our waitress was not attentive. She never asked us if we wanted refills on our drinks or waters. We both ordered a few alcoholic beverages with our meal, but when we told her we didn't care... More

Mckenzie used to be my favorite restaurant ever. But after going there over a span of 4 years, the quality went downhill a TON. To the point that I ordered my favorite meal and the waitress said she didn't recommend it! It is still ok but it's not that great

Came here for dinner and was sorely disappointed by the atmosphere and service. Our waiter did the absolute minimum, never asking us if we cared for refills or if we needed anything else. Food was nothing special either. Would not come back.

Some great names for the local brews (e.g. the emergency golf match Amber Ale). The beer is good and the food was above average. We were here on a Sunday night and the restaurant was busy with a good atmosphere.

Stopped in for lunch during the week on way to Villanova. Really nice salads and great sandwiches. Reasonably priced and good size portions. Waiter says they cut out middle man and source straight from local farms thus better prices. They have great on- site brewed beers. Had the winter warmer
