McKenzie Brew House - Chadds Ford
Fun place to eat great food and hang out with old friends
Tried the Saturday night Prime Rib special. Great deal. Next time I should arrive earlier to get a rare cut!
The Love Potion was AMAZING
Normally love this place. Clearly a busy holiday is not their strong suit. Took 15 minutes for waitress to come to the table. They were out of Riesling. Took way too long for appetizers to arrive. And the curds were a bit burnt. My order was wrong. When I asked for the crab cake to be removed they took it back to the kitchen and removed the crab cake and brought the exact same food. Then charged for the crab cake. I had asked for the filet from the regular menu. The waitress was clearly over her head on the busy night. Even after most of the tables had left.
Well priced! Food was a little slower than I expected, but food is cheapish and very yummy. Drinks are good too!
The service was very slow. It took us over two hours to eat - way too long with young children.
Food just ok. Friendly staff. Appetizers came with dinner.
First time there and loved everything. Had I known how good dessert was going to be, I might have taken more dinner home! I will definitely be back.
Lets start from the top. I made a reservation for a short booth table. Was offered a high table at the bar, instead I had to mention that we reserved a booth. Drinks took a very long time. By that I mean we honestly stopped checking the time after 15 minutes becuase we were so frustrated. One of the meals was good. The other came incomplete and with items not listed on the menu. This caused the food to be sent back. When it returned to the table the food was cold snd at that point could no longer be enjoyed. Was offered nothing in terms of compensation. I feel as though I've been ripped off entirely. If they had made me and offer for more than a free mkmksa that I didnt want I might have changed my mind about the whole experience. Seeing as I wasnt and i oaid in full for a mean that couldnt be enjoyed I am entirely disappointed.
I am a vegetarian/vegan and was pleased with the menu and options. The service was great and the food was delicious. I will definitely visit again!
Food and service were very good. I was disappointed in the beers. I ve tried everyone one overtime and can’t acquire a taste for them. I wish they would brew an American ipa or a lager.
The pulled pork nachos were amazing. Just the right combo of sweet and spicy on a bed of home made chips.
The burger was made exactly to order and very tasty.
The wings were disappointing and I would not recommend.
We have eaten a number of times at McKenzie's...it was always very good. ordered the cedar plank salmon, which I had had before and it was excellent. Unfortunately, this time I sent it back because it was not anywhere near as good. In fact, I told the manager that I thought they had gotten substandard salmon. It wasn't the same quality as before. My husband ate his, as he was very hungry, but in the car he told me that his wasn't nearly as good as in prior visits.
We were seated in the room with the bar. It was very loud and we were not able to have nice conversation with our friends.
That said, our server was excellent.
Our server Desiray G provided outstanding service.
Thanks for the kind review, John!
Great food, price and service! Very enjoyable! We'll be back!
Carol, we appreciate the review! See you next time!
Our first time to the McKenzie Brew House and we were so pleased with how delicious the food was! The service was excellent, and the atmosphere was great as well. We will definitely go back.
Hi Mandy, I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your first visit at McKenzie! See you next time!
wonderful, wonderful server Melinda, had so much fun!
Thanks Kathleen! Come back soon!
Great food and service
We watched the guy football game on Sunday - loved it
What a great value for Sunday brunch! And the menu selections were varied. Our party of 8 all found something to love. The service was excellent. We will be back again.
Had a very nice meal with God friends. Food was outstanding, as was the beer. Great placed to eat.
We went for dinner after Christmas lights at Longwood Gardens. We had two smaller group reservations which they combined with out batting an eye. Servers were friendly and the food was good and well portioned. Also service was fast we ordered, ate and and were on our way in about an hour without feeling rushed. With at least one other large party in the dining room plus our 9 and other smaller tables we were very impressed.
Enjoyed the bonus of playing bingo while enjoying friends and families company
Unfortunately our family was disappointed in the cold food for a family member that was sent back three times, one drink was served in dirty glass with black markings. Drink was replaced in cleaner glass . Wondering if the bartender looked at the glass while pouring? Lightning could be a notch brighter. Our server was pleasant.
Took a long time to get food. Nachos, salads, and soup almost 1.5 hours....
Made a reservation for 4 people for 10:15 pm. When we arrived we were told the kitchen closed at 10! Why are they taking reservations if the kitchen is closed?? This bar/restaurant is not an option now after the movies. Too bad. Their food is good and service was always good when you could still get food until 11 pm. What bar closes the kitchen at 10? Bad decision from corporate.
Hi Joeyprince, I apologize for the other night. We really should have contacted you earlier in the day to let you know the deal. Nonetheless, thank you for your input. You are not alone in feeling we should be open later. That's why, starting this week and ongoing, we've decided to extend our full menu until 11 on Friday's and Saturday's. Of course, the late night menu is still available one hour after close each night. Will
Burger sliders asterisk hard?? Beer was good. Spartacus was very attentive.
Hi Popp, Thanks for the feedback! Please help me understand the issue with the sliders and I will happily investigate. Will
Disappointing meal. We went for happy hour with our kids. The food was very underwhelming. The nachos had way too much cheese and the chips were soggy. The calamari was not crispy. The margarita tasted just like the mix, very sweet, and im pretty sure no alcohol. The lighting is very dark. At least we only paid happy hour prices... Service was good though.
Hi JCDS, Thank you for the feedback. I'm sorry you did not fully enjoy your experience the other night. Next time, please let us know and we'll be happy to remake some of the items. Will
Food was either really bland or strangely spiced. Beers were less than expected and we were either ignored or interrupted by our server. Won’t be going back here.
Hi Anonymous, Thanks for the review. Will
Thanks for the review, Mikes!
I've never had a bad meal here! While I have a few go-tos on the menu, everything I've tried has been delicious!
Hi JoFabRose, thanks for the great review. We look forward to serving you again soon!
Tuesday taco was a great deal, several varieties but I choose califlower, very good. Came with rice, beans and beer.
Hi JayleeF, thanks for the review! See you again on Tuesday, or try our Fajitas and Ritas deal on Thursday!
Excellent and consistent service and food. Our server, Spartacus, was especially excellent!!
Hi David, thanks for the great review.
Wonderful meal and service. Hung out with my bestie- catching up with girl talk.
Hi DJ66, thanks for the review. See you next time!
The food, drinks and waitress were great. And the weather was nice enough that we were able to eat outside which is always a plus
Great place for a quick bite to eat
Hi Flossi, thanks for the great review. We look forward to serving you again soon!
Great place. Clean and friendly. The food is delicious and will go again!
Beth, our server was amazing as usual. Their Sunday “Steak Night Special” is fantastic! I love creamed spinach and I love cauliflower but not cooked together. That was my only complaint . I would highly recommend this.
Overall, great experience from start to finish. The nacho's are simply the best nacho's around the tri-state area. Also, the beers that are made from the brewery are a must try. I will return to this establishment soon to enjoy the amazing food and people again.
The food wasn’t the greatest. We use to come here years ago and couldn’t figure out why we stopped. Once we started eating the mediocre food it dawned on us. The place just doesn’t have good food. But the service was really good.
I had trouble finding the entrance but the service was very good
