Ambiance is interesting where as the inside is pretty standard, but the outside deck bar is freaking awesome in the summer time. Service was pretty good considering we completetly flooded the bar with people. Selectionw as decent, probably about 12 of there beers on tap, several which were pretty solid. Food was very very good, ans was priced, with the beer, farily. Overall, worth the stop if you;re in the area.

Bus stop for RBSG 2011. Very empty, spacious location. Circular bar in the center- a little odd. Some nice patio/deck seating outside. You can order tasting flights. House beers were on the low end side- mostly soapy and astringent with other off flavors. Rather unimpressive. Food is available but we were here a little early for lunch.

Several visits. Austere interior, typically pretty dead, spacious room and hanging TVs leave it feeling more like a spaceship than a bar.. Samplers have ranged from poor to decent, often 2-3 weak beers per entry, and often very few seasonals. The wraps were excellent though, and prices are pretty considerate. Service quick and polite.

Another stop on the RBSG 2011 bus trip. This place was great. They had an excellent tap list, and it happened to be a bottle release day. Service was pretty swift for having to deal with a bus load of people all at once. We sat at the bar and ordered a few things to eat and a few samplers. Prices were incredibly good. Certainly worth visiting.

I was not feeling this place at all. They had 6 typical beers on tap and 2-3 seasonals and I wasnít knocked out by any of them. The bar area is real close to the door. They also have an outdoor area as well as some sort of basement bar, but when the beer is this mediocre why does it matter?

If McKenzie werenít a brewery, Iíd probably really like it. The inside is nice, but not the type of atmosphere I want at a brewery. They focus a lot on other alcoholic drinks which doesnít make any sense to me since they make beer! The house beers are okay but their seasonals are pretty decent. Iíve been there a few times and none of the servers seem to know anything about beer. The food is good, but a little overpriced. The crowd isnít a beer crowd.

The place itself is kinda a mix. I like the high ceilings and lighting around the bar, but the dining area is real cheap and mid-90s sports bar-ish. I do like that you can see the kitchen. Ive read complaints about the service but ours was pretty good. The waitress didnt seem to know what she was doing, but everything arrived correct, on time, and hot. The standard brews were pretty boring, but the seasonals were delicious. The food was also very tasty and not too expensive. The beers and food make it worth the trip.

Stopped here for mid-afternoon lunch on 10/19 on the way home. Great service, really tasty food for both of us. Place was packed and obviously a very popular place. The beers were pretty good although they werenít what Iíd hoped for. Most of my expectations for McKenzie was what was stuck in my head from a few years ago when all the great bottles of Belgians were out there. While the offerings were solid and I enjoyed them, they werenít much different than many brewpub offerings. The Dubbel and Saison stood out at least as a deviation from the standard fare. I would definitely go back here, however, and I thought the food was terrific.

Small selection, to me. I am not a fan of their standard beers, and usually only go to try new brews. Parking can be very hard as they do not have enough spaces. Smoking sucks. All of the food I have had has been tasty, well prepared, and presented hot. Service is average. As with many places I feel like they are always around when you donít need anything, and MIA when you do. Nice TVs.
