    This bar is owned by the actors who play Mac and Sweet Dee from It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia. With 17 beers on tap and the occasional acoustic musical talent, you'll feel like you're on set.

    The only bar I've ever visited and had a fully vegan meal without even trying. The Seitan Sandwich was incredible. So good I couldn't even slow down to snap a pic.

    If your in Philly,and your looking for the "It's Always Sunny" scene.Dont bother with Paddys Pub.THIS is what your looking for.Outdoor seating available for yummy bar food and a classic drink menu.-

    All white bar- not many people of color on a Saturday afternoon. Great beer selection. Try the gravy fries- not all the of the varieties actually have gravy on them. I recommend the Mexican fries.

    The main investor is Mac from Always Sunny in Philadelphia and his high school buddies (which I think is cool)... Just an average bar slightly nicer than the TV show... If your close by worth a stop

    --Bartenders are open to creative suggestions when it comes to making drinks and usually sport some specials with themes from the show.Very cool spot😄

    Mac’s Tavern is part owned by FX's "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" actors (and husband/wife) Rob McElhenney & Kaitlin Olsen. There are 17 beers on tap, but sadly "Day Man" is not on the juke box. Read more

    Great selection of beer and well worth the visit. Seasonal beers on tap! A bit crowded and touristy though.

    The Veggie Burgers are really delicious. However the glasses of wine were ridiculously small for $7 and we waited a long time for everything.

    The calamari and fries are fabulous. My husband really liked the chicken cheesesteak. Service could be better but whatever.

    Make sure you stop by for some of Grandmom's Own, a soup of meatballs, escarole, egg, cheese, and chicken broth inspired by "someone's old family recipe". Read more

    Try the Talapia Tacos. Even though it's on the appetizer list, it's plenty of food

    Waiter/manager was a jerk. The place was not busy, and we couldn't **stand** at or place drinks on bar tables when ordering at the bar.

    Don't bother drinking at this bar. Worst service known to Philly. Although tables are very tempting, You can't sit down unless your at the bar but good luck finding sitting or standing room there.
