We enjoyed a neighborhood brunch in which MacAllisters opened their restaurant just for us for Sunday brunch, not normally open on Sunday mornings. The buffet was plentiful and the food was good. We eat there frequently for lunch and it is always great! Their New England chowder is one of the best! The servers were very attentive.

This was my second visit here - last year I drove one of my parent's cars down before they moved into their new house. This month, I moved to Lakewood Ranch to get things ready for my husband to come down. Both visits were solo and it was a great choice in both instances. I had a table outside on... More

The original owner sold and the new ownership didn't skip a beat. Wide variety of American dishes with a hint of Scotland. Everything is tasty and decent sized portions from burgers to complete dinners. Good sized bar area and good for lunch, dinners or just a drink, inside or out.

Went to MacAllisters before a movie.Beer drinkers will enjoy the specials during happy hour. The "well" Scotch was just OK but at the happy hour price. Basically, good bar food priced slightly higher than expected. Loud and busy so be prepared. Return visit unlikely except maybe with grand kids.

Visited the area with my "foodie" cousin and we were both pleased with our choice for a dinner destination. Service was great, food delicious and the atmosphere had a local vibe. I would return and highly recommend.

Came in after the movies. Food was fabulous! Devin told us to try the house made peanut butter pie. It is a must have! Ask Robbie at the bar to make a special cosmo. He will know what you're talking about.

Last minute decision to try something new by our home and passed on Polo Grill for bad reviews so chose MacAllisters and was pleased. Menu was limited and Scottish theme dominated but tried the stuffed haddock and it was great. Pleasant surroundings. Manager came around to each table there and talked with patrons-great chat. I think on big thing is... More

We brought the grandkids here. The staff was very accommodating, even bringing a small bowl of soup for one of them when we told the waiter that we planned to share with her. The food was excellent and large plates. The kids got crayons and drawing page. We had soup, quesadillas, burger, and tuna stack plus chips for the kids... More
