Went last night (10/3/15) with my Fiancee on our first night experiencing downtown Roswell and what it has to offer. Have to say, extremely and totally disappointed with this location. We have enjoyed the Decatur location several times, but everything about this one is wrong. Drinks: Beer and whiskey list extremely lacking compared to Decatur location. Ended up getting a "campfire mule" which tasted like a soapy glass mixed with ashtray. Not sure if thats the fault of the restaurant or the ingredients though. The beer my fiancee was recommended was a Gate City belgian which was pretty awful and lacking in all the ways a belgian style ale should be. Food: Absolutely awful. We ordered the bacon wrapped dates and Chicken 65 as apps, but decided not to order any dinner after the experience. The chicken came out dull and lukewarm and looked like it had been sitting out for over 15 minutes before making it to us. The curry sauce was under-spiced, goopy and covering chicken that was NOT fully cooked. I tried two small pieces but couldnt stomach more. The bacon wrapped dates were burnt to small crisps, but my fiancee stomached a few down due to hunger. Service: Okay at best. The waitress clearly didnt know what to do about people not enjoying their food. However, the food isnt the waitresses problem so I can understand, Service was fairly slow (it was not crowded) but again, thats hard to say if its a management issue or the fault of the particular servers. There seemed to be a miscommunication with management, as after we had paid and were leaving, a manager finally came over and spoke to us but had no idea we had already paid. He did take the Chicken 65 and Mule that we didnt eat/drink off the check, but had to run back and cash out since the waitress had already completed our payment. Honestly, the manager seemed embarrassed and defeated. He nodded in agreement about the quality of the food. Props to him for coming over and trying to make it right though. After dinner: It was an unpleasant, but not unexpected, experience to come home a few hours later and end the night and begin today between the toilet and the bucket. Extreme food poisoning issues for me, according to the local urgent care. Id be wary of any chicken product they carry, as Im 90% certain that was the culprit. All in all just a terrible experience. If you want to try a Mac McGees, hit up the one in Decatur. This one clearly suffers from some management and kitchen issues that could result in you praying the the porcelain gods as I did. Dont make my mistakes.
This was my third time here and definitely the last! Came the Sunday after st. Paddy and everything was sub par. From the time we walked in, the place had a nasty odor like dirty mop water, the food was served in paper plates and plastic spoons and the portions were half the normal size!!! I ordered my usual which is the shepherds pie, it was served on foil, full of potatoes and about 3 bites of meat! When we tried to ask, the lamest explanation was that they had a very busy st padded day and were running out of food orders, REALLY?!?!? We even tried to talk to the manager at the bar and his attitude was " oh well...." No wonder they had only 5 or so customers including us whereas the other restaurants nearby were bustling in and out. We are definitely not recommending this place or coming back! Made the worst impression especially since we had bewcompany and it was their first impression- EMBARRASSING!!!!
Best pub in downtown Roswell, live music, great drinks, good food (if you like Irish food), friendly service. The only negative about Mac Magees is that it IS the most popular place in Dt Roswell, so its ALWAYS crowded and its very difficult to get a drink at the bar, or even get timely drinks if you are lucky to score a table downstairs. You can not smoke inside, so outside the front door is always packed with smokers. So, if youre a patient person looking for a good time in a smoke free bar, Mac Magees is the spot to gravitate to! Parking down the street is $5 BUT get there early because parking in Dt Roswell fills up FAST. Id recommend using Uber if you can over driving to, and parking in, Dt Roswell for ANY sort of visit!
The bartenders and management dont care about their customers. I watched someone get charged for a beer that was given to the wrong customer and they still made him pay for it. The bartender told him "we can stand here and argue all night but I have paying customers all around you." her attitude was so snobby I refused to order from her. Management was involved in this situation and sided with the bartender. It was absolutely unacceptable behavior by their staff. I went down the street to salt and had a great experience from a staff who actually had decency. Also, mac McGee is notorious for smelling like dog poop. Would not recommend.
I love the ambiance - as long as no one is smoking right in front of the open door (yuck) - and the food is really amazing. My favorite is the bangers and mash which are made from scratch. They also have colcannon which is hard to find and theirs is really good. My friend got the fish and chips and got a large portion that he said was awesome. So, if you are into pub food/Irish food/Whiskey and like really great service - then this might just be the spot for you! Everyone Ive referred has really liked it. And maybe dont sit by the door if it is open and there is a breeze....
I came here for lunch earlier this week with my Mom. The first thing that stood out when we walked in was the warm, cozy ambience. We were able to sit right down and were given an extensive drink menu. There were tons of great options. The food menu was excellent as well and we both had a hard time not ordering 4 items a piece. My Mom went with a vegetarian option, and I went with the Shepherds Pie. Both were delicious, fresh, and clearly made in-house. Our service was also wonderful, and I would absolutely recommend giving it a try. I will be going again soon.
I really like history, and Mac McGee is within the historical Roswell district. The building is old, I believe it was built in the mid 1800s. The ambiance is very much a pub, which I prefer. The food is good, but last time I was there they didnt have the ruben, which is the best! I hope it came back. And you really need to try their beer beard, excellent. Plus, their whiskey selection is massive, I tried a whisky from Hokkaido, Japan, Nikka, so the selection reaches around thew world.
Fantastic Atmosphere! As soon as you walk in a warm fire and friendly staff is there to greet you. The Cobb Salad was loaded with fresh romaine lettuce, avocado and bacon. The Rueben sandwich melted in my mouth. Their fries are delish too, you can choose from a variety of sauces to dip them in. Love this cozy Irish Pub nestled in Historic Downtown Roswell. Large portioned pub food, good drinks and fun crowd make this a repeat.
