    Great bar in downtown that isn't loaded with the "downtown" types. Amazing beer selection, good scotch selection, treat the staff right and they'll take care of you. Upstairs is great for parties!

    “An American bar with a Scotch flavor,” Mackenzie Pub has a great craft beer selection and a killer menu including our favorite, the Red Stripe burger.

    Whiskey bar? Maybe. Great bar for beer, solid bar food and a nice relaxed environment? Definitely.

    The real Makenzie's! Accept no 4square substitutes. Derrik and Chelsea and everyone who works here, is the shit. And they have pinball!

    Their patio is larger than the inside. And your conversation is not interrupted by bums and car horns!

    Ask Derek for a Stinky Pinky. A deceivingly easy shot that tastes like a bomb pop.

    BAD service on the patio. Sat there 40 minutes and waitresses never checked in with us. Would have ordered food if they cared to ask. It was not extremely busy either.
