Went here for lunch with family on a Friday, it was pretty busy but got seated quickly. I can imagine it can get quite crowded during peak times. Had some great bar drink specials we tried. Food was typical bar food, but quite tasty side....More

Mac's seems to be themed as an Irish Bar. It cant be an Irish bar if the staff have no idea, not the first clue, how to pull a pint of Guinness. St Patrick's Day 2018, was lively but the pints were flat. A disgrace...More

Five of us spent a long night in Mac's throwing darts in early March. Good, clean bar. Very nice barstaff. Owner must be a Chicago Blackhawks fan. Good no-frills bar. !!

We met friends in Charleston for the weekend and stumbled upon this place. Our server Devon was the best and the food and variety was good.

Had burgers and salad and watched the Olympics after a long flight into town. Food was good. Although busy, noise was ok. Service was great. Would return.

Mac's Place is touted as an Irish pub. More like a sports bar. The tables are so close together, they are almost touching. There were lots of tvs showing the Olympics, and I think the owner must be from Chicago as the place was full...More

We stopped in to watch some football and hopefully get some good food. It’s an excellent place to watch sports-tons of tvs all over the place and it’s definitely decorated like a pub/sports bar. It’s a seat yourself place-there’s no sign so I’m telling you....More

Solid sports pub . Good beer and pub food selection. Most reasonable prices I have seen in Charleston. $2 beer of the month. Only downside is that it is a “Chicago” run sports bar so you have to tolerate Chicago sports stuff ;)

We had a nice family dinner here. The venue is very nice and includes a rooftop bar. The fare is classic southern, and very well done. I had a fried chicken breast with mashed potatoes and gravy, it was delicious. They had some performers downstairs...More
