Reviews of MacGregor's Grill and Tap Room

fuhry's review

A well-assembled plate reflective of the quality nature of the restaurant it is served in. Unfortunately I'm not a fan of the single patty on a plate. It was a delicious burger, but I think for a plate, the thinner patties ala Mark's work best, because it allows for easier assembly of mouthfuls that include all three of fries, mac salad and burger. But I digress. The mac salad seemed a little oily but was full of flavor. Fries were similarly impressive: well-seasoned steak fries if a tad on the undercooked side. Hot sauce... I don't remember much. It was good. A little soupier which I like - it's supposed to be more than just ground beef. (I was a little inebriated from the Founder's Dirty Bastard Scotch Ale I had with the meal, or really before the meal because it took a while for the plate to get there. Since I had a very empty stomach, it hit pretty quickly.) No French bread, so cleaning your plate (or "taking out the garbage") isn't possible. Considering the quality of the ingredients I'd consider this plate a great value, though the portion is a bit big if you're going to MacGregor's for their amazing beer selection and hope to finish a pint or two alongside the plate. I probably could have finished it if I had not ordered a beer first. Response time: It took a while (maybe 20-30 minutes) but they were pretty busy that night. Served on a ceramic plate with proper silverware as you would expect from a sit-down restaurant.

Christian B.'s review

Plate quality on par with the rest of MacGregor's excellent pub menu. Plate is smaller than your standard plate, (one burger only) but massive steak fries fill the gap. Mac salad had an unexpected but surprisingly good pepper kick. Service was slower than usually, but that was likely due to new wait staff. And of course, with MacGregor's excellent beer selection, you can a enjoy cold brew with a fresh plate.
