The salad is always my first request. The brunch includes the salad, fruit and cinnamon rolls. The brunch is the most reasonable pricing. I love it.

The waitress and the food were exceptional. The sound is terrible and it is way too loud. I hear this from all of my friends who frequent your restaurant. Some say they hesitate to go because of the noise.

We were very pleasantly surprised when we walked through the door into a beautiful dining room with a comforting ambience. All of the staff were energetic, helpful and happy to help. Our party of 4 had porkschops, prime rib, filet mignon and sirloin strip. All of the food was incredibly tasty with generous portions. The drink menu was great. (They have flights). Our group of 4 with drinks all for around $250. We will definitely be back.

Great bar with an excellent choice of spirits and festive atmosphere for the Holidays.
The chicken fried steak was made with an excellent cut of meat and the flavor was very good. I recommend it. We’ll be returning to try other menu items.

Mac's Bar & Grill has the best seafood in Arlington Tx as well as an extensive selection. The service is attentive and the meal is not rushed. When seating is full, the noise level
is moderate. Early 5 to 6:30 and later after 8 PM is much quieter. Weeknights are less busy, but on weekends and Holidays reservations are highly recommended.

I’ve been coming here since I was little. My friends were in town and I was so excited to take them to Sunday brunch to try all of my favorites. To say I was embarrassed is an understatement. We almost left.

When we first arrived the hostess confirmed our reservation and promptly sat us with a smile. However after 15 mins of nobody greeting the table I had to go back up to the host to grab our server. He was an older man who frankly didn’t even know the menu. As well as back handedly questioned me when I gave my order. My friend also had a modification to her omelet which he wrote down no problem… she didn’t want jalapeños or onions. Then about 25-30 minutes later he came back saying that they couldn’t do that.

We ordered poinsettias that came out garnished with older strawberries. & since it was brunch the cinnamon rolls and fruit were a major part we were looking forward to and asked for the salad as well. The salad came out missing the cheese that goes on top and the plate fruit was also squishy and older than normal.

Finally our order comes out and I ask for a condiment as did my friend, he only brought out one upon returning. So we then asked again for the additional.

Overall I was extremely let down and ashamed to have hyped up my long time childhood restaurant to my friends. The sever I guess didn’t care or didn’t think we would tip since we were younger and not dressed in the after church look. But the bussers and food runners took better care of us and actually seemed to enjoy their jobs and customers. We still tipped 20% as I’ve been in the service industry before and to hopefully teach a lesson if our looks were causation for our bad serving experience. I truly hope that this is not the new normal level of excellence for Mac’s.
